Tricking a BeagleBone to Output Video

Florian shows us how to trick the BeagleBone to output video.   By making the BeagleBone think it has the DVI Cape plugged in, it would output video.

I decided to attempt to connect the PSP Screen I fumbled together earlier to the Beagle board since all the necessary signals are readily available and a display driver is included in the Ångström distro.  How hard could it be ? Right ..?
Beaglebone Capes are recognized by the kernel via their eeprom. This memory holds identification and configuration data for each Cape. In order to impersonate the DVI Cape I used an ATmega32 to talk to Beagle’s I2C bus and mimicking that very specific eeprom. The actual memory contents for the DVI Cape eeprom can be downloaded from the website.

New from the fine people who have brought us the Beagle Board, we now have a smaller, lighter, but powerful single board linux computer, Beagle Bone!   We like this move to a more compact and integrated SBC. For example, there is onboard Ethernet and USB host, as well as a USB client interface (a FTDI chip for shell access). It even comes preloaded with Angstrom Linux on the 4 GB microSD card!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
