Chumby Hacker Board tutorials!

Chumbyhackerboard Lrg-1

This page is a collection of mini-tutorials on doing stuff with the Chumby Hacker Board (for brevity we will refer to it as the CHB)! The CHB is a cool single board Linux computer that has much of the same hardware as the famous Chumby One. It’s great for people who are experienced with Linux and want to have the power of a microcomputer with audio and video output while at the same time getting all the peripherals of a microcontroller such as analog-to-digital conversion, PWM outputs, sensors, bit twiddling, and broken-out GPIOs!

Power supplies – How to power your Chumby Hacker board!
Serial port – How to connect to the serial terminal port for shell access
Compiler – Installing the Falconwing GCC toolchain
Accessing i2c – Connecting to i2c chips including the on-board accelerometer!

More to come soon!

  1. Hope some info on using the LCD interface and sound outputs are posted soon. This board looks like a good target for porting Rockbox to if it had an LCD hooked up and the D/A is suitable for stereo audio.

  2. I love the resistor color code test! Much more fun that a captcha which I get wrong half the time.

    I hope to use the chumby for a multimedia computer. How about a tutorial on the sound and video related apps that will run on it, and how to get them going :)
    Thanks!
