Geiger Cape kernel support is available in Beagleboard.org GitHub tree[1]. There are demo applications available in the links below.

Communication with the cape is using Capebus driver interface (example output below):

Confirm Capebus picked up device
	# cd /sys/bus/capebus/devices/bone-0\:3
	# cat id
	Geiger Cape,00A0,Geiger Inc,

	(start running)
	# echo 1 > run

	(power LED turns on and the event LED lights up on a “click”)

Display counts:
	# cat counter
	4344

Display VSENSE (voltage feedback loop) in Millivolts:
	# cat vsense
	538004
