Accommodating Arduino Shields: Updated Pinmux

Dear Community,

we would like to share with you our recent discussions about minor changes in the Shield I/O pin mapping, which further improve Arduino compatibility.

We have also carefully checked the mapping specified by the “userspace-arduino” project on http://beagleboard.org/project/userspace-arduino/, but we think in comparison to our proposed mapping (PDF) there is less flexibility given. Feel free to tell us your suggestions.

Best Regards,

Dear Community,

we would like to share with you our recent discussions about minor changes
in the Shield I/O pin mapping, which further improve Arduino compatibility.

We have also carefully checked the mapping specified by the
"userspace-arduino" project on
http://beagleboard.org/project/userspace-arduino/, but we think in
comparison to our proposed mapping (PDF<https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/arduino-shield-to-beaglebone-black-cape--2/x/6326889?c=activity>)
there is less flexibility given. Feel free to tell us your suggestions.

Will you submit patches to userspace-arduino to change to your mapping? Did
you check availability of PRU pins? It would be easy to emulate an entire
Arduino on one PRU.

I hope the support picks up for your project. I really want to see you get
funded and there are only 3-4 days left! Any thoughts on getting more
exposure for the campaign? Any way for a distributor to place a bulk order?
I imagine a couple of them might find it interesting.
