It is similar to the Beaglebone,but with some features removed and some features added. The table below gives the high points on the differences between the BeagleBone and BeagleBone Black. Below is the location of the connectors and switches on the Rev A5A board. List of frequently asked questions concerning the BeagleBone Black. It will be updated as more questions continued to be answered. You may use the Beaglebone Black design materials as you choose. We do not encourage the use of the board that we manufacture under the BeagleBoard.
We are not able to schedule parts and arrange for production for orders that we cannot see. Meeting demand is difficult as a result. In addition, we will make revisions to the board as we find necessary and we will not continue to make older revisions. This can result in supply and compatibility issues for those using them in a product. When used in a product, the end customer is responsible for its use in their product.
Changes in components used on the production of these boards such as memory devices, may affect operation of the board, either positively or negatively.
ALL design materials are Open Source and easily accessible. Everything is provided to build your own board. You can make changes as needed or use it as is.
It is your product when you use these materials. Feel free to build the board yourself at your contract manufacturer of choice. If you have questions on any of this, you can contact Gerald Coley.
Continued shipments number in excess of 1 million boards at the rate of around , per year 20, per month , mostly manufactured by Embest, but also GHI Electronics. Anything that can be added to the BeagleBone Black. JTAG is an uninstalled option. NOTE: It is highly recommend that you use DC power when running these dongles due to the current requirements of the dongles.
The book beaglebone black cookbook configures the wifi using wicd ncurses. Sometimes standoffs will work. We also have had instances where when placed in a metal case, there can be Wifi issues as well. Logic Supply] which will help. For information on the serial debug cables go to Serial Debug Cables. We are making this change for several reasons:. Assuming of course you don't try and use it all.
This also gives us two sources. We are working to figure out where it needs to be. This is for several reasons:. Added some margin allows us to find more capacity. We have been successful in fighting back some increases, but we don't know if that will continue. No changes in features or operation of the board resulted from this change.
This extends the reset signal to solve an issue where some boards would not boot on power up. This change was based on an alert we just received from TI that there is a power sequencing issue with the TPSC power management IC and the power sequencing is incorrect. We do not believe at this time, that the issue is causing any issues with the boards, but we want to comply with the directive.
Change was made to reduce the delay between the ramp up of the 3. No evidence of this being an issue, but it really needs to be as close to the same as possible. Production had some fallout of boards when running the HDMI tests in the previous production run.
Resistor values were tweaked to improve the test results. No changes in features or operation of the board. Pins are not populated but the four signals are in a 2x2. Added a power button which allows for wake up, power down, and sleep options.
It also provides the ability to alert the processor before powering down to provide an orderly shutdown. It is expected that SW will be used in conjunction with the switch to control the various power modes and transitions from one to the other.
By holding the button down for 8 seconds, it will force a power down of the board. First prototype release version of the board. Limited distribution. One notable issue here is that the board has an AM processor instead of an AM, despite how the part is marked. Part was mismarked as an AM There are several precautions that need to me taken when working with the expansion headers to prevent damage to the board.
These pins are connected to the expansion header. If you load or terminate these pins to the point it affects their default setting, the board will not boot. The expansion headers can be viewed on this Cape Expansion Headers. Power restrictions on the serial debug header are not an issue. On the board, there is a buffer that prevents damage from occurring by having the connector of the FTDI cable connected to the the header. It is safe to do and will not cause damage to the board when power is not applied to the board.
You may even decide to make it your home page! Day's Wiki Retired Linuxonarm Wiki. If you have installed a Linux distribution on your microSD you can modify the root file system partition. You are then able to utilize all of the space on your microSD card regardless of the size of the default partition of your given image.
Note: The instructions on that page are general and are not guaranteed to work on every Linux distribution.
Bonescript is a Node. The BoneScript library provides several functions useful for interacting with your hardware. HDMI Issues.. We have several people having issues getting the board to work with various TVs and Displays. RMA returns have shown no issues. You can find a list of reported issues and add additional ones by going to Bug Tracker.
If you look closely, you will notice some noise in the display. This is due to a termination issue on the board caused by too many connections to the LCD data pins. This will be fixed on the A5 revision.
We have been noticing a very small number of boards that are experiencing power issues, where the LED flashes and the board does not power up. We have been chasing this for a while now and due to the small number of boards that have the issue and the fact that the issue can also be caused by having things connected to IO pins not powered correctly, it has been hard to nail down.
Our initial take was that it was a manufacturing issue on some boards, but we could never prove that. Based on the latest information we have gathered, this appears to be an instance where the PMIC does not power down the processor in the right order due to the violent removal of the power cables, either USB or DC. So, we are recommending that the power button be used to power off the board or by issuing the Halt command.
After that you can remove the power cable. If everyone follows this process, we should see a decrease in these issues, but it will take a while for the results, either good or bad, to show up.
This will also help prevent the contamination of the eMMC and the SD cards by allowing the kernel to shutdown properly before power is removed. Another issue that we have seen is that the power supply when plugged in will create a spike that exceeds the voltage rating of the PMIC or will cause the voltage to drop momentarily.
This can occur after power up cycle has started. When this occurs, the PMIC will shutdown. This can cause the processor to be powered down before it is powered all the way up, damaging the processor. It is suggested that to prevent this that you use a well regulated power supply that can handle the current surge of the powering up process. All boards now ship with the Debian image. The Debian is compatible with all versions of the BeagleBone Black. You can download latest Debian images here.
Building a CNC machine or 3D printer can be greatly simplified with this customized Linux distribution. It is highly recommended that you always use the latest version of the Software. For instructions on how to get Android onto the board goto Android. This link is provided as a convenience and the software located at this link is not supported by BeagleBoard.
The security oriented distribution kali has an image for the beaglebone black. The links below are static links that always point to the latest version of the listed documents. These links can be used by distributors or users to point to the latest documentation. As documents are updated, the links will remain the same, but the actual file will be updated.
This insures that you always have the latest documents and your links will always work.
