Tutorial: Setting up IO Python Library on BeagleBone Black

The BeagleBone Black is unique in that it has quite a few pins that are available on easy to use pin headers, as well as being a fairly powerful little system. There are 2 x 46 pins available (well, not all of them are, but we’ll get to that later) to use.

Some of the functionality that is available:

  • 7 Analog Pins
  • 65 Digital Pins at 3.3V
  • 2x I2C
  • 2x SPI
  • 2x CAN Bus
  • 4 Timers
  • 4x UART
  • 8x PWM
  • A/D Converter

Quite the feature list! The Adafruit BeagleBone IO Python library doesn’t support all of them, but we hope to add more as we go.
