BeagleBone: Using TI eQEP to read quadrature encoder in DC motor #BeagleBoneBlack @TXInstruments @BeagleBoardOrg

Drew Fustini shares some developments in one of his BBB robotics experiments – BeagleBone: Using TI eQEP to read quadrature encoder in DC motor:

My goal is to build a DIY servo controller with BeagleBone and a DC motor with integrated quadrature encoder. The TI eQEP hardware peripheral integrated into the BeagleBone processor can accurately decode quadrature encoded pulses. I am using the Linux kernel driver from Nathaniel Lewis….

Read more about the project and what inspired him to create it here.

BeagleBone Adafruit Industries Unique fun DIY electronics and kitsEach Tuesday is BeagleBone Black Day here Adafruit! What is the BeagleBone? The BeagleBones are a line of affordable single-board Linux computers (SBCs) created by Texas Instruments. New to the Bone? Grab one of our Adafruit BeagleBone Black Starter Packs and check out our extensive resources available on the Adafruit Learning System including a guide to setting up the Adafruit BeagleBone IO Python Library. We have a number of Bone accessories including add-on shields (called “capes”) and USB devices to help you do even more with your SBC. Need a nice display to go along with your Bone? Check out our fine selection of HDMI displays, we’ve tested all of them with the Beagle Bone Black!
