Hi

Is it possible to create a custome board with more interfaces, memory etc. Does the licence enables this, is a BoM available.

Why not?

If you design and build your own custom board, the BoM will consist of the parts you chose. The Parallella itself is open, if I remember correctly. The FPGA eLink interface is.

From what i see the licence is GPL, could i use it comercialy. Would my board also need to be GPL

Is there some links with BOM for the curent board with PCB design schematics

Found it.

Now my only doubt is about GPL, needs more investigation.

If anyone has info if i can use these designs to create a commercial product without the need to post the source since i need to add proprietary components and IP.

Any derivative work of a GPL work needs to be GPL as well. So yeah, your board would need to be GPL too.
