custom board

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

https://github.com/parallella/parallella-hw?files=1

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.
