Date: 20th May, 2024

  1. Introduction of mentors and mentee
  2. Motivation behind the project
  3. issue with the SD card booting of the Beaglebone AI 64
  4. post boot up, test examples on the r5 core
  5. Nishanth listed a set of links to refer
  6. checkout hardware debugger(Tagconnect), for now proceed with openOCD.

  2. Successfully able to build from Andrew’s fork.
  3. Self-hosted OpenOCD setup is completed.

Task to be done

  1. Upon verification of Andrew’s build, start implementation of I2C support
  2. Introduction video completion.

Week 2

Minutes of meeting
Date: 10th June, 2024

  1. Dhruv Menon set up a local CI/CD for Beaglebone AI.
  2. Currently working on writing the I2C driver.
  3. Discussion on why pin control was not added in the DTSI file.
  4. Discussion on missing GPIO support in the DT file for Beaglebone AI.
  5. asked for references for developing a custom I2C driver(Dhruva Gole and Andrew Davis suggested looking at TI Linux and PDK/MCU SDK versions)
