Can anybody explain how to get startet with the “BeagleBone Motor Cape”?
Unfortunately there is no documentation. I searched the web for a day, but couldn’t find anything useful.
Do I need the I²C pins, or a re they only for recognizing the cape and it’s EEPROM?
Do the Mx.HIGH pins need to be connected/muxed to GPIO digital output mode to do the direction of the motors?
Do I need to connect/mux the Mx.PWMx.A/B pins to GPIO pwm mode to do the velocity of the motors?
- I want to drive some DC motors.
- What are the pins for?
- Which pins are necessary and which are mandatory? (Do I need the dio/pwm pins or can I do everything via I²C like it seems to be with the “Adafruit 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo Driver - I2C interface - PCA9685”?
- How to configure to drive a DC motor (only how to configure via “config-pin” is known yet)?
Any help for me as a newbee (only adapted functions from comms cape at my custom cape in use yet) is welcome.
