Rev B

We are starting with revision B based on this being an update to the BeagleBone Black AI. However, because this board ended up being so different, we’ve decided to name it BeagleBone AI-64, rather than simply a new revision. This refers to the Seeed release on 21 Dec 2021 of “BeagleBone AI-64_SCH_Rev B_211221”. This is the initial production release.
