I’m an absolute noob on the beaglebone bleck. I just got one yesterday together with a cape that duplicates the pins, so i could have two capes side by side and a chipsee display cape with a 7" 5 point touchscreen.
I got them used, so I expected the display to work, since it was never really used - according to the seller.
the module works as far as it can power the bbb from it and one of the uart lines shows the serial console of angstom linux. the beagle also works, but I can’t access it since the original owner changed the password.
So I am going to flash a new OS…
Since I could not really find any current information according the state of support for this lcd I wanted to ask if someone could help me and shed some light on what is neccessary to bring the module to life.
I feel really really dumb, since there is absolutely no information that i can make sense of and most of the links from the google groups are broken or plainly dont match the hardware in front of me… I worked with embedded systems before and I am pretty good with the raspberry pi… But I feel really really dumb starting out here. So if you guys gor some starter information, please share it too
Thanks for your kind words!
Sadly, a The LCD-cape is a module that I did not create myself, I don’t have schematics. And the manufacturer does not really support the product anymore.
The support team growled at me, when I asked to get isos of the cds with the drivers, sourcecode and prebuilt images.
I try to find a non-broken datasheet or a shop page:
I found a pdf overview on openhacks.com
I could provide some images and measurements, if you would like.
