Adafruit_BBIO on BB XM

by ikaRus on Sun Jun 12, 2016 3:56 am

Hi,

I am running Adafruit_BBIO on a BBB, everything works as expected.

I am looking at the BB XM now as it offers features that I need.

I could not find any document for using Adafruit_BBIO on the XM...

Is the library compatible with the BB XM?

TIA & Regards,

D.

No, I don't believe there is any support for the BeagleBoard xM in Adafruit_BBIO.

The BeagleBoard xM is not very friendly for interfacing with external circuits. I would definitely recommend the BeagleBone Black.

If you really do want to use the BeagleBoard, then you may want to check out the Trainer board:

Hi,

I am already using a Rev. C BBB with the the BBIO library, works as expected.

I was looking at the BB XM because I liked its extra resources.

For example, while playing a 1280x720 video using mplayer I get a console notice about the system being too slow to show this video.

It does show but not as smooth as it should.

Is the BBIO library supported on any other SBC except the BBB???

TIA & Regards,

Dudi

Adafruit_BBIO is written for the BeagleBone Black. It is only compatible with BBB derivatives such as the BeagleBone Green.
