BBB - PRU C compiler

Posted by shabaz Top Member Apr 30, 2014
Nice bit of information at this TI URL: (My underlining below):   PRU Development The Programmable Real-time Unit (PRU) is a low-latency microcontroller sub-system comprised of two or more 32-bit RISC processors, local instruction and data RAM, local peripherals and an interrupt controller. The PRU is efficient at handing events that have tight real-time constraints. The PRU is also known as the Industrial Communications Sub-System since it is used to enable industrial protocols such as Et ...
I've previously had great results connecting Adafruit 8x8 LED matrix displays to the BeagleBone Black via I2C: Adafruit 8x8 LED matrix controlled by BeagleBone Black LED ticker: BeagleBone Black & multiple Adafruit 8x8 displays   I decided to try out the Adafruit bi-color 8x8 LED matrix and hooked it up with the same I2C pins as before.  You'll need to setup the Adafruit_BBIO Python library if you haven't already: https://learn.adafruit.com/setting-up-io-python-library-on-beagl ...
