A Beagle board clone?  The Beagle board already costs less than its component 
Did you alter the design in some way?

There is the EBV clone in Europe and possibly ones from India and China. It is easy to clone :) I don't think the Beagle sells under material cost, but I suspect the margin is not a sustainable business model.

Also, why only 200 MHz?  That's way slow... what is the reason?

That sounds wrong. Stock Beagles run at 500 MHz and can be turned up to 600 MHz. Newer Beagles run up to 720Mhz

Yes, using the DSP is very interesting. Approaches range in complexity from wrapping a call to do the processing in the DSP from the existing gnuradio block structure to integrating the DSP into the gnuradio block scheduler.

      At what rates are the OMAP 3530 cores running on the Beagle board? ? The
      web page says "up to" 600 MHz for the ARM A8
      and up to 430 MHz for the C64x+ core. ? Sometimes TI eval/dsk boards
      don't always run at max rate...

      Also, do you know if anyone has done work to port GNU radio functions
      over to the C64x+ core? ? For example you mention
      sample rate conversion, that would be very suitable to offload onto the
