BeagleBone Black is a low-cost, open source, community-supported development platform for ARM® Cortex™-A8 processor developers and hobbyists. I have no idea what indicates either an error condition or a successful operation, and the BeagleBone Black SRM does not seem to discuss it. BeagleBone Black. System. Reference Manual. Revision A4.

In this video I am going to continue my series on the Beaglebone by demonstrating how to use its GPIOs for both input and output applications. In this video I will wire simple input and output circuits that are attached to two GPIOs — one that lights an LED and the other that receives a button input. I covered this topic below before in a previous video. I am updating it here because there have been significant changes to the Linux kernel.

This video will cover the Linux device tree for ARM embedded systems and explain how you can create custom device tree overlays to configure the GPIOs for your applications at run time from within the Linux userspace. The information below is covered in the video, but here it is just in case you need to get a text view:. Using the same circuit as in my old video. Well to understand this you need the document to beat all documents — the AM Technical Reference Manual.

It is a The current direct link is: The page I am most interested in is PageSection 9. Well if you look at this table, you see that 0x30 means the slew rate is fast, the receiver is enabled, the pad is set for pullup and pullup is enabled. The Mode is 0. Expansion Header P9 Pinoutyou see that pin is set as:. Be careful, not all pins work in this way and there are external resistors on the board that affect the behaviour. Just so that I always have these environment variables I am adding them to my.

Which includes the environment variable to set up the certs to fix the configuration issue for curl as discussed here: Overlays allow the initial device tree that was described at boot to be modified in userspace at run time. So, the pin mux physical pin is completely separate from the gpio block internal signal. You have to enable both. In this overlay example I am using the bone-pinmux-helper to enable the pins.

The description of this code and its use can be found in the video. Understanding the Device Tree: I think this will be most helpful video for us in BBB. Especially on Device Tree in Linux. Thanks for Your effort again. I followed all the instructions and it worked for me. When I follow one of the steps I get message: Unable to parse input tree root beaglebone: The way I fixed this was to git clone directly to the Beaglebone and it worked perfectly.


I am having problems with the polling. I will try to use the PRU as a last resource. So far without success in getting interruption kHz without overload the CPU, do you have some idea about that? Compiling the overlay from. I reset ubuntu and BBB then tried. What is the easiest way to Start editing the example you uploaded? I would love to see datalogger example video. Hi Derek and friends, I have been trying to follow along with video for several days now and each time I get stuck in the same place.

I have used git to clone the pertinent files directly on the BBB; I have removed all comments from the first fragment; I have tried keyboarding the code by hand into a duplicate file to eliminate any invisible character. Still, I get the same error. BBB uname -a Linux beaglebone 3. I appreciate your suggestion. I have tried removing comments in a previous attempt.

I will try once more. Thanks again, Peter M. I have no idea why this is.

Stripping out the comments seems to work for most people, but it appears to me that dtc is being very fussy with syntax. Try retyping an almost empty dts using vi and see if you can get that to compile e. Hi Derek, Thanks for your response and thanks for your lucid and inspiring videos and blogs. I am a newbie on the beaglebone and mostly new on Linux but very interested and motivated.

I will keep trying to write a dts file that will compile.

I earlier tried writing from scratch, your dts file from this video resulting in the same error message. Can this section be changed to avoid the syntax error? Again, thanks for your help, Peter M. You can manually remove all of the lines below:. Hi Derek, Deleting those line worked! The file compiled without complaint. I will now move on with my education.

Y Thanks for your videos and blog posts on the Beaglebone and thanks for beaglbone help. Could it be possible the overlays in addresses to put in structs together joined in a bbb.

Your whole website is fabulous! Have you looked into reading the analog inputs of the Beaglebone Black? It seems like there may be issues in the ADC drivers. This is a great tutorial for a beginner like me. I have had limited success but am stuck on getting a reading from a ds18b I am trying to hlack p9 pin But is it offset or 0x From above: This is at address 44e and offset 0x according to my braglebone.


A few values in the SRM did not work for me and this may have been one of them. Hence, I generated the table directly from the board itself. Yes, I have been able to flash the led and read the button according to your offsets. Even your TestApplication worked right out of the box. Offset is pin 88 but I am not sure what it is used for yet or where it is on the headers.

Thanks for your great instruction.

Ken Klein Lexington, KY. Really great video cheers — I was wondering how easy it would be to demonstrate an interrupt coming in from S2?

I found this code on another page. When I tried it at home, without any proxy, it worked just fine.

Hello Derek, I want to change the mode settings of P and P pin which are default. And I want to use that pins as normal beahlebone. How can I change the mode of this pins permanentely. What would you need to do in order to do the Stepper motor with this new device-tree setup? Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks for the bkack job. In the manual I see the following:. Do Device Tree Overlays make use of this or is this a special function that requires explicit definitions?

I used the cape-bone-iio for analog, and the analog work fine. I run on kernel 3. These are fantastic tutorials, and have saved me from throwing my BBB out the window and going back to the RPi! Lets say if you were bit bashing a port. Just curious, is there no other way to do this? Please ignore my above question. I think this was addressed by ken klein before and answered by the author. Sorry for not reading all questions.

I try to execute this command in different ways and i always get this as result: Hello Dereck, your tutorial is awsome!! I have two questions: Did you find how fix it? Remember that you will have to do a ls -a to see hidden files those with a.
