I've looked into the files of the beaglebone, and since I've already made a start on the charger in Eagle I can make this for you. It'll be:
- USB power input for charging
- Qi input for charging
- single LiPo cell battery
- supplying 5V from LiPo cell to 5V_SYS connection of the Beagle
Thanks Victor.... I will review and choose who gets a free board end-of-next week. Regards, Shawn
I have the BeagleBone Qi Cape almost finished already! I rearranged all of the parts and I am about to order the board for testing.
I can't wait to try it!
I can give a try too.
Underdog deserves it.
In a very dexterious mood I already did a lot of work on this; I'll post the progress thus far in the blog; I really have to concentrate on other things now ( other RoadTest Design, private live), so please: IF you're considering in going on with making a design for the Beagle: take a look at my design, and re-use whaterver you like. And please give me credit where applicable
Edit: blog post with schematic and board file is here: http://www.element14.com/community/groups/wireless-power-solution/blog/2012/10/25/start-of-beaglebone-shield
Work in progress... This is my 01 version.
The archived (rar) Eagle sch is here: http://ioclk.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/QiLiCape-ioclk.v01.rar
Nice job Danteo.... I will ship you a later today! Looking forward to seeing the design in a working prototype. Regards, Shawn
PS: please feel free to post your design notes in Italian or your favourite language :-)
Anyone want to build a CAPE with TI bqTesla wireless power solutions?
A "cape" is a BeagleBone daughterboard. We'll generally refer to them as "capes" because "Underdog" is a beagle and he wears a cape. The term "shields" is nice, but that has some implication of Arduino and this is definitely not an Arduino clone. Take a look at the list of registered cape concepts and register your own. You can purchase some of the capes via the CircuitCo BeagleBone Cape wiki page which attempts to log all of the capes currently available for sale.
Let me know and I will support your project!
FYI... These are the Eagle CAD files for the Adafruit Proto Cape Kit for Beagle Bone: ----> http://www.adafruit.com/products/572
