NERP Tonight — The MinnowBoard from Intel, and BeagleBone Black Internals

NERP Tonight — The MinnowBoard from Intel, and BeagleBone Black Internals

NERP is not exclusively Raspberry Pi, the small computer
and embedded systems interest group at Pumping Station:One
in Chicago. NERP meets every other Monday at 7pm at Pumping
Station:One, 3519 N. Elston Ave. in Chicago.

The MinnowBoard is one of the newer open (or open-ish) hardware and software single board computers. The Minnowboard showcases Intel’s Atom processor. The audience is the Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone crowd, but the feature set and price puts the MinnowBoard in a different class. Drew got his last week and has gotten a good overview of the system. He’ll share his findings with us tonight.

The BeagleBone is a fast-moving software project where major pieces of the system are under constant revision. I’ve been digging around the BeagleBone Black’s i/o system and playing with some configuration options. Tonight I’ll show a couple of sources of tools and code that I’ve found useful.
