Installation of the Alternative JTAG Header on the BeagleBone
Optional JTAG Header It is possible to modify the BeagleBone to use an optional 20 pin CTI JTAG header.
If done by the user, it is done at their own risk and should only be done by those that know what they are doing. If the board is damaged or the change does not function, there will be a charge to make it work. An RMA can be requested to provide this repair service. To perform the change yourself:
- ) Remove R164,R165,R166,R168,R169,R170,R171,and R172.
- ) Install R178,R180,R182,R183,R185,R177,R184,and P7.
P7 is a Samtec FTR-110-03-G-D-06 connector and can be purchased from Samtec or any of their distributors.
Alternatively, it is possible to purchase a BeagleBone with the Alternative JTAG Header already installed:
