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
