For Experts The tasks described in this manual require advanced experience with Unix/Linux.

Scope

Eventually, Radarcape will use a Beaglebone Black Rev. C in order to provide

  • more computing power (1GHz instead of 720MHz)
  • more memory: 512MB instead of 256MB
  • an internal 4GB eMMC card instead of an external SD card

The only disadvantage seen is that the Radarcape looses the native serial console that was accessible through the back side USB.

This page documents changes required for a Radarcape on a Beaglebone Black Rev. C. Please note that the Radarcape requires at least Revision 3.0 cape board, as some pins that are now used by the eMMC, had to be re-routed.

For fallback reasons, an external SD card still can be used. See below.
