12/16/2011 10:49:06TriCape0Ross Morrisonross@newsink.comCape breakout board with on board 32bit PIC(TM) microcontroller. The PIC interfaces to the AM3359 via a SPI interface. The PIC is interfaced to a NXP RTCC with battery backup. The LCD lines from the AM3359 are routed to a 2mm pitch 50 pin header which enable connection to LCD personality boards we have built (Newhaven 320x240 and Optrex 800x480). This cape is primarily designed to provide user interface functionality to the Beaglebone.In-development or

12/16/2011 11:31:37BeagleBone BreadboardBeagleBoardToyscustomer@beagleboardtoys.comThe BeagleBone Breadboard is designed to provide a simple but productive prototyping space. This prototyping cape is equipped with a patterned prototyping area, two general LED’s, two tactile switches, one 8-pin female header and two stackable 46-pin connectors. LED’s and switches are wired to an 8-pin header for convenient access. There are cutbacks for the Ethernet connector as well as LED’s and reset button on the BeagleBone board. The 46-pin headers are stackable so users won’t have to worry about losing this feature. With each purchase including an adhesive solderless breadboard and jumper wire kit (140 pieces in 14 different lengths), the BeagleBone Breadboard offers users a powerful prototyping tool without the needs of soldering.Production
12/16/2011 11:32:32BeagleBone Breakout CapeBeagleBoardToyscustomer@beagleboardtoys.comThe BeagleBone Breakout provides easy access to the BeagleBone components and test points during troubleshooting processes. BeagleBone’s are great with its stackability. However, when it comes to troubleshooting, access to some test points and components on the top side of BeagleBone and bottom side of the stacking capes are very limited. The BeagleBone Breakout cape solves this problem by separating BeagleBone and its cape. There are two cutouts on the breakout cape, and each cutout is equipped with a set of two 46-pin connectors. One connector set is for the BeagleBone board, whereas the other is for its capes.Production

12/27/2011 20:21:05Universal Motor DriverRene vd Vossenbergr.vandeVossenberg@upcmail.nlThis is a feature request,

How about a Cape for a Stepper/Servo/DC-AC motor
You should be able to add an "unlimited" amount of Capes on a beagle and address them seperatly.
Perhaps through USB using a hub to save IO pins (for eg sensors)
Perhaps connect them together in a serial way using connectors
or any other way

Motor Power should not be drawn from the board but externaly supplied so it supports high end motors. (Relais??).

Anything you want "moving"
Industrial Machines
CNC devices
Models (train, car etc)

Such a feature would be a selling point for me (and a lot of others)

PS as far as I know there isn`t any Motor Driver for beagle yet.
If you know any please inform me

Currently working out the various pin mux settings to see if this is actually possible. I believe mcasp0_axr* on D12,V4,C12,C13 are available for the SPDIF.

The SPDIF out will initially be direct from McASP0 in DIT mode with a line driver on each port. We will measure output jitter and take a view if we need to use a higher quality transmitters like 4x WM8804.

ALSA patches to follow for up to 8-ch 24-bit 96khz output.

No EEPROM, because it is a dumb cape that just supplies juice. May upgrade that soon. It *just* supplies 5v through header pins. Currently waiting on FedEx. Should be cool paired with the LCD cape and a WiFi /or WAN dongle. No need to plug it in, ever? ICS? OK, the ICS is slow, and could use some optimization, but I'm from Missouri, and I say "Why not try?"

1/22/2014 12:51:49 SITMMatthew J Harmonmjh@itys.netLooking for two ethernet ports and two wifi in addition to the single on-board ethernet and power over USB for a prototype (investor discussion in 2mo) "Security in the Middle" router/ids/strongbox device currently in development. Existing RasPi build in production uses multiple USB dongles but 1 in every 4 packets gets dropped due to differences in ethernet frames vs. usb frames.

Looking to beef up, get a bit more open and migrate to BeagleBone.

The graphics accelerator will feed drive through GPIO to CCD driver chips on cape. An A/D on cape will feed pixel data through GPIO. Other features to be included on cape are CCD substrate generators and temperature sensor and Peltier driver for CCD ship cooling.
The Beaglebone Black will provide a real time NTSC/PAL display as the CCD captures images, and send image data to host computer/storage.
