By Steven Barrett, Jason Kridner

This entire booklet offers designated fabrics for either beginner and skilled programmers utilizing all BeagleBone versions which host a robust 32-bit, super-scalar TI Sitara ARM Cortex A8 processor. Authored via Steven F. Barrett and Jason Kridner, a pro ECE educator in addition to the founding father of Beagleboard.org, respectively, the paintings can be used in a large choice of tasks from technological know-how reasonable tasks to college classes and senior layout tasks to first prototypes of very advanced structures. newbies might entry the ability of the "Bone" during the effortless Bonescript examples. professional clients may possibly take complete good thing about the Bone's strength utilizing the underlying Linux-based working approach, a number of function extension forums (Capes) and a wide selection of Linux neighborhood open resource libraries. The e-book comprises heritage thought on procedure operation coupled with many well-documented, illustrative examples. Examples for amateur clients are based on motivational, enjoyable robotic initiatives whereas complicated tasks persist with the subject of assistive know-how and photograph processing applications.

Key Features:

  • Provides distinct examples for all BeagleBone versions, together with the most recent "next iteration" BeagleBone Black
  • BeagleBone is a good value, open undefined, expandable laptop first brought in november 2011 by means of beagleboard
  • BeagleBone variations, together with the unique BeagleBone and the recent beaglebone black, hosts a strong 32-bit, super-scalar arM Cortex A8 processor
  • BeagleBone is sufficiently small to slot in a small mint tin box
  • "Bone" can be used in a wide selection of tasks from center institution technological know-how reasonable initiatives to school classes and senior layout tasks to first prototypes of very complicated systems
  • Novice clients might entry the facility of the bone throughout the straightforward bonescript environment
  • Seasoned clients may possibly take complete good thing about the Bone's energy utilizing the underlying Linux-based working system
  • A host of function extension forums (Capes) and a large choice of Linux neighborhood open resource libraries are available
  • The ebook offers an creation to this strong desktop and has been designed for a wide selection of users

Sample text

Let’s examine several examples: Example: Given the following code segment, what will be the value of variable2 after execution? 4. FUNDAMENTAL PROGRAMMING CONCEPTS unsigned char unsigned char 29 variable1 = 0x73; variable2; variable2 = variable1 << 2; Answer: Variable “variable1” is declared as an eight bit unsigned char and assigned the hexadecimal value of (73)16 . In binary this is (0111_0011)2 . The << 2 operator provides a left shift of the argument by two places. ” Note that the left and right shift operations are equivalent to multiplying and dividing the variable by a power of two.

4 EXERCISE 3: DEVELOPING YOUR OWN BONEYARD — AROO! In this exercise you develop a prototype board to exercise BeagleBone. ” In the spirit of “Do–it–yourself (DIY ),” we encourage you to develop your own Boneyard by using your creativity and sense of adventure. com. Adafruit (www. 6. Built–to–spec also offers a variety of BeagleBone products including prototype boards and enclosures. 7. com]. com]. 8. The Boneyard includes the following: • A black Pelican Micro Case #1040, 12 1. 1 inch solderless breadboards and • One piece of black plexiglass.

5: C operators (continued). (Adapted from [Barrett and Pack]). sum = variable1 + variable2; return sum; } Logical operations The logical operators provide Boolean logic operations and are useful in comparing two variables. The result is returned as a logic value of one (1, true, high) or zero (0 false, low). The logical operators are used extensively in program constructs and decision processing operations to be discussed later. Bit manipulation operations There are two general types of operations in the bit manipulation category: shifting operations and bitwise operations.
