I have also created a blog website for progress tracking and for posting .Also some blog posts explaining how to do some important stuff can be seen on Blog posts
Installed PRU-GCC , compiled simple codes that run on PRU and worked with remoteproc to load firmware
Resolved installation issues with Beaglelogic and set it up to view communication with shift registers
Wrote simple character driver to understand the intricacies
Went through gpio chip driver.
Resolutions to blockers:
- When i connect my Pocketbeagle and Beaglebone wireless with my Laptop at the same time , i can only log in one of them. The issue is because on both the boards the usb interfaces are assigned same IP address. I need to figureout a way to solve this as i would be using beaglelogic on my beaglewireless to analyse communication between PRU of pocketbeagle and shift registers
Plans for the next week:
Introductory YouTube video.
Writing simple gpio drivers
Understanding more about PRU and writing code for 74hc595
Update the blog posts
