BeagleBone Cape RF compatibility with BB Black

Hi Guys,

I have a beaglebone cape RF which i understand is for the BB white.
Is it possible to use this on the BB Black?
Does anyone have schematic for the Cape RF? BeagleBoneToys had next to nothing for info :frowning:
Which mode(0-7) is required by the Cape RF on the expansion headers for BB white? for BB Black?
I see there is a mapping for Expansion Header pinout in EEPROM Where is the this mode selected?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Chuck;

About all that I can help you with is the facts that the latest version of the Kernel uses “device overlays”.

Derek Molloy has an excellent tutorial on how to write and compile your own custom overlay.

Good luck !
