Production Testing[edit]

Setup[edit]

  • Install BBB-COMMS-2 on BBB
  • Install shunt at H1 (Write Enable)
  • Ethernet connection to BBB
  • Power via 5V jack to BBB
  • Verify 3.3V LED is lit
  • Log in via putty
    • User = root
    • Password = enter

GPIO Testing[edit]

  • Hook up LED-32 Card to these pins
D0 = "P8_26"
D1 = "P8_17"
D2 = "P8_15"
D3 = "P8_11"
D4 = "P9_23"
D5 = "P9_26"
D6 = "P9_22"
D7 = "P9_15"
D8 = "P9_12"
D9 = "P9_11"

D16 = "P8_18"
D17 = "P8_16"
D18 = "P8_12"
D19 = "P9_27"
D20 = "P9_24"
D21 = "P9_21"
D22 = "P9_16"
D23 = "P9_14"
D24 = "P9_13"
  • Run test via:
cd ~/pyBBB/BBB-COMMS-2/blink-BBB-COMMS-2/
python blink-BBB-COMMS-2.py

I2C Testing/EEPROM Programming[edit]

  • Go to directory
  • Program the EEPROM
  • Verify by typing
cd ~/pyBBB/BBB-COMMS-2/mkeeprom
cat data.eeprom > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/1-0054/eeprom
cat /sys/bus/i2c/devices/1-0054/eeprom | hexdump -C
  • Result should be like -

  • Remove WE jumper
  • Type
cat data.eeprom > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/1-0054/eeprom
 
  • Result should be error
root@BBB01:~/pyBBB/BBB-COMMS-2/mkeeprom# cat data.eeprom > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/1-0054/eeprom
cat: write error: Connection timed out
  • Prepare to re-run
  • Type
halt
  • Combined Copy/Paste
cd ~/pyBBB/BBB-COMMS-2/blink-BBB-COMMS-2
python blink-BBB-COMMS-2.py

cd ~/pyBBB/BBB-COMMS-2/mkeeprom/
