Programming GPIO on Fedora

Project Description

A guide and some simple projects that run on different boards on Fedora.

Package appropriate libraries and provide instructions on interfacing devices to the BeagleBoard/BeagleBone and PandaBoard devices using the GPIO/SPI/I2C interfaces.

Expected outcome: appropriate libraries for GPIO/SPI/I2C support will be present in Fedora, and documentation page will be available outlining how to use these features.

Skills required: packaging, testing, writing

Maximum number of participants: 2 (one per board)

Resources: Chris Tyler (ctyler), Peter Robinson (pbrobinson)

Project Details

Oct 6, 2012. Group Meeting.

We discussed about which hardware and interface we are going to contribute. And the final decision is we are gonna use Pandaboard device. I will work on the GPIO interface, and Luis will work on the I2C interface. One of our member drop the course, so, that is all for now.

We did some research on the library and drivers, here is the google doc link for sharing the information within group member: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TJQb7bEK91TNs3f2jqkOiQU3_ro8Z7BhKEbdtaCOoxc/edit

Project Plan

Tracking mechanism (bugzilla, trac, github, ...):

Key contacts:

Goals for each release and plans for reaching those goals:

  • 0.0 Plan

We are going to use the Pandaboard device for the I2C/GPIO/SPI interfaces.

Luis Fuentes  : Package appropriate libraries for I2C
Jiecheng Qiu  : Package appropriate libraries for GPIO

  • 0.1 Research the library of GPIO/I2C and package it on Pandaboard with Fedora System

  • 0.2 Test it and make it done

  • 0.3 Finalize the package release and finish the documentation

Here is a page that I've recently started writing about GPIO/Serial/I2C/SPI on the Pandaboard: http://zenit.senecac.on.ca/wiki/index.php/Raspberry_Pi_Interfacing

This is an unfinished project started by a CDOT research assistant for interfacing a motion sensor to a Pandaboard: http://zenit.senecac.on.ca/wiki/index.php/Motion_Sensor_Interfacing_for_Panda_Board_based_Dash_Board_System
