Looking at the schematics and documentation for the Load cape:
What is the I2C EEPROM for?
I compared its pinout to the BeagleV -Ahead and they appear to be the same, but the Load cape product page does not explicitly state that the cape is compatible with the BeagleV -Ahead. Can anyone confirm that they are in fact compatible?
I see the images section from the docs. pages. Get that Ubuntu image on your BeagleV-Ahead. Then, get BeagleBoard-DeviceTrees installed via make all && sudo make install. make all may need sudo too. I cannot remember.
Anyway, I am going to test the Relay Cape now. I will report back once I get it up and running.
And…about the Load Cape, I will test it too.
There is more to it than I can configure for now. I will have to get you updated w/ the Capes and BeagleV-Ahead later. I am sorry.
I am just looking back at the forums now. I see you just posted. I am sorry for not getting to the Load Cape just yet.
I do not carry a COMMS Cape. It would be neat to test those technologies…
In fact, I think an older model book has UART and COMMS tech. involved. I need to reread the sections but I think at one point in the book, the author goes over some basics on UART and vehicles technologies.
Although the source he uses is written in Adafruit_BBIO, I am sure the COMMS Cape could be an easy replacement. Aw…yes. Ch. 13 of “The BeagleBone Black Primer (McLaughlin 2016)” book refers to sniffing out car issues…
