** Aims at transforming a Beagleboard or IGEPv2 into a full-blown home server that could cater to home automation needs
 
** Compatible with both the Beagleboard and the IGEPv2
 
** 12V battery powered, or mains-powered (accepts 9 ~ 18V)
 
** Enough power for an internal 2.5" or 3.5" hard-disk, USB-attached
 
** +3.3V and +5V I2C; +5V I2C is buffered with a line buffer accepting a larger capacitance which allows I2C devices at distances up to 50m
 
** I2C to 1-wire hub (using DS2482-800 which is supported by OWFS); plugging in 1-wire devices lights a LED which makes it easy to confirm if a 1-wire device is detected.
 
** Real time clock with super-capacitor backup
 
** Internal monitoring of the HW health (power supplies + temperature)
 
** Some relays
 
** Ethernet-based console port
 
** a few other options (RS232 interface with CTS and RTS, SPI port, S-video, additional SD-card)

TinCanTools BeagleBoard Trainer

This page lists expansion boards for the BeagleBoard single-board computer. Most of these boards make use of one of the BeagleBoard's expansion headers. Like the BeagleBoard itself, many of these boards are Open Hardware, with schematics or board designs freely available. For more information on creating expansion boards, see BeagleBoard Hardware Interfacing.

General-Purpose Expansion Boards

Robotics

  • Beaglebot uses a custom board which provides power, level shifters, and PWM control of 5 hobby servos.
  • This robot has a simple expansion board which includes power regulation and PWM motor drivers.

Cameras and Imaging

LCD Expansion Boards

Rev C2 and later boards provide direct access to the LCD lines before they enter the DVI framer via the LCD header, enabling expansion boards which interface directly with LCD panels.

Arduino

Some expansion boards include Arduino-compatible Atmel microcontrollers:

  • The TinCanTools Trainer Board has an Arduino compatible Atmel AVR on board
  • Arduino Nano uses an FTDI FT-232 based interface which is supported by the ftdi_sio kernel driver- How To Notes
  • Arduino Uno uses a Atmel ATmega8U2 based interface which is supported by the cdc_acm kernel driver - How To Notes
