Hello,

My name is Seth. I am currently wanting to make some posts on the BBB and some sensors/Capes w/ the Python and Adafruit_BBIO. I have been reading some of the books that have been available from other people and I think it is time I post an update to these specific books or make my own additions/changes available in the form of posts or some small works.

First issue:

  • I cannot find out how to get the BBB photo to get it integrated into OrCad or Fritzing. 
  • I tried OrCad Lite and the .brd file that is available. There is no photo alongside the .brd file.
  • Also, I tried to find some .pdf files or .svg files for Fritzing to use the "schematic" of the BBB to make small works.
    • Small works would basically be:
      • Connected sensors and related sensors in an easy-to-see fashion.
      • Capes, like the Motor Bridge Cape, working w/ motors and power in an easy-to-understand visual.
  • So, 
    • In hindsight, I would like to see if you know how to accomplish this task.
    • And if so, could you please jump on board and provide some support?
Seth

P.S. I think this is clear. If it is not that clear and you need extra info, please contact me. Thank you.

Based upon an early version... try:

Hello,

Sir, I do not know where you got that info. but thank you. It worked like a charm. B/c of my OrCad version (Lite), I cannot handle large files. Anyway, thank you very much.

Seth

P.S. If you need anything, let me know.

Simple Google search for

fritzing beaglebone black

and it came up as the second entry (first if you ignore the [AD] from
Mouser)

Hello...when you are right, you are right. I just typed in the same search words. It was second like you stated. I had a bunch of elinux sites but that specific post you showed me was second. Thank you again, sir.

Seth

P.S. What have you been doing w/ your BBB lately?
