What are you using to power the BBB Ind? 5 volt barrel? USB?
I have only used the standard BBB, not the industrial. But gathering advice from various places (adafruit, BBB Cookbook), you must have more power than USB provides, so it is recommended to use the 5 V barrel connector with 1 amp or more. The HDMI pins add a lot of noise that interferes with wifi, so move the wifi chip away from the P9 header pins.
The 5 volt barrel since its going to take more power. We will disable the HDMI before we finish. It serves no purpose.
I am in the process of rebuilding the kernel IOT Debian kernel without a CLUE because it information is either dated or non existent when you try to add a wifi. Sorry letting my frustration get the better of me.
Let everyone know if this works.
We need to have Ethernet and WiFi for our beglebone black industrial board to fit into our configurations.
We decided on using the Microchip ATWILC3000 https://www.microchip.com/wwwproducts/en/ATWILC3000
as the WIFI chip. The current platform we are building on is the element 14 BeagleBone Black industrial
We are not interested in the Bluetooth but if we can add it to so much the
better. (We are currently using tty1 and tty4 for other items)
They have drivers here https://github.com/linux4wilc/driver
I am a software guy and new to Linux and totally ove rmy head looking for guidance.
So if you could slow walk and old coder through how this would work OR
you can add this to Debian for a fee I would be interested.
In the end we would need to know what pins to hook up for a SPI configuration
and where to install the software OR if you want to guide me through I would really appreciate it.
