BeagleBone Black and Watterott display

For a long time I had been aiming to connect some small display to any of my small computers, specially the BeagleBone. Well, some weeks ago I finally succeeded to get one up an running. The display is the Watterott MI0283QT-9A (https://github.com/watterott/MI0283QT-Adapter). It is well-known by the Raspberry Pi and the Beaglebone communities. It has a reasonable quality-price ratio and is very easy to use.

Reading RFID tags with BeagleBone Black

I had already used my ID-12 RFID reader with the BeagleBoard, the Pandaboard and also Arduino. It is very straight forward but I will just keep some notes here for the future.

The ID12 outputs the RFID codes through a 5V serial port, so the interfacing is very simple. For the BeagleBone Black we just need to shift the serial port levels to 3.3V and enable one of the multiple serial ports.

TESTCape. Understanding the Device Tree (PART I)


In our NULLCape tutorial (LINK) we explored the basics of BeagleBone cape development. Now it is time to go into the real stuff, and for that, we need to understand how the Device Tree infrastructure works. Here begins the development of the TESTCape and our journey into this black magic stuff!

imgfs. Dealing with those annoying image file names on Google+

Had you ever got feed up with all those images on Google+ with the same file name?. Maybe this is not an issue for you or maybe there are simpler solutions, but for me it had become pretty annoying the fact that most of the pictures in the Google+ post have the same name so I have always to rename the file before saving it.
