Installing Mono/Linux and Windows Embedded on a BeagleBone Black board #BeagleBoneBlack @TXInstruments @BeagleBoardOrg

NewImage

Laurent shows us how to install Mono/Linux and Windows Embedded on the BeagleBone Black.

The BeagleBone Black, also called Beagle Bone Black or BBB is an interesting board. It’s an AM335x 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 with 512M of DDR3, 4GB of flash and does have an HDMI, USB client and host interface. But what I prefer are the 2 times 46 pins to have tons of IO available. It does reduce a bit the number if you are using HDMI. But still, it’s an interesting board. On the not as good aspect the analogic entries are only 1.8V max and not protected (so you need to add a 1.8V Zener diode to protect all analogic entries. The board does natively run Linux on it on the embedded Flash. And you can flash it with another Linux or even Windows Embedded see here.

I’m a C# guy (ok, sometimes I do some C++ too) so I like anything running C#. And I always try to find a way to develop using C# on any board. Sometimes it’s possible like for the RaspberyPi first version, see my blog post here. C” with either the full Microsoft .Net framework or the open source Mono one is a great way to be super productive in terms of development. Even in the embedded world if you don’t need hard code real time. And in the case you need some, then switch to C++ and create your own dll which you’ll be able to use later with C# for the rest.

In this article, I’ll explain how to install a new Linux compatible to install Mono as well as a Windows Embedded image.
