EScape’s roadmap

Hello to all supporters and friends of our EScape-project! All tests on our first handmade prototypes are done and the first official release is in preparation… we have done some little improvements with the next Revision (B0) : 1. We (all) missed the reset- and power-button, the bbb pushbuttons could not be accessed because the […]

EScape Debug Connector

In 2002 we defined a proprietary 10pin header for all our microcontroller-designs to connect a serial debug terminal to the µC. Therefore we designed a LVTTL-RS232 interface which fits into a DB9-donglebox with standard RS232 signals on a DB9-female connector. To meet the requirements of our various designs, the interface handles signal-levels from 2,7V up […]

EScape to reality

  The prototype board was assembled completely today! It is working and BBB has survived the first tests 🙂 the debug-console is connected by EScape, all onboard I2C devices are detected and could be programmed by i2c-tools, after that RTC comes out of sleep and is running too. Next step will be to program the cape eeprom with propper […]

EScape Signal Description

Now it’s time to go a little bit into details and we give an overview of EScape signal usage. Signals, which are used internal only (EMMC, LCD) are not touched. The signals to external ports like ES-Port and mikroBUS connectors are protected and limited to 3V3 or 1V8 to meet demands of Beagleboard CPU. This […]

EScape PCBs arrived

Today, the first pcb samples arrived in our laboratory! We were so excited until we checked the dimensions, poooh… all mechanical dimensions are right and it fits perfect to BBB and 7″ LCD. Next week we will start assembly, our EScape project becomes a reality … stay tuned

EScape Project

EScape ist unsere erste Entwicklung für das Beaglebone Black… Dieses “Cape” bietet zahlreiche Schnittstellen und eine Pegelanpassung für eine gefahrlose Erweiterung des populären CPU-Moduls. – The BeagleBoneBlack BBB is a very interesting CPU-Module with the advantage it can easily be integrated in Your electronic design, but the main weakness of that board is the vulnerability […]
