I’m rather new to the IoT and BeagleBone Black.
I’m really enjoying it. I am employed by SAFE Inc., and we make custom PCBs and microcontrollers. We use quite a few BeagleBone Blacks.
We recently acquired your Comms cape for a large project.
The Debian Linux distribution I am using (the one compiled for BB) sees the Comms cape, but the overlay for the cape seems to be missing: BBORG_COMMS
Here’s the output from dmesg:
debian@beaglebone:/lib/firmware$ dmesg | grep bone

I am wondering if there is or will be an overlay for this board, of if there is an alternative way to enable UART4 for this cape? Currently, when I try to use or enable it with Adafruit in Python, it is just not available.
Wow. That’s amazingly fast answers and communication!
I really appreciate it.
I’m really getting into this new career of mine in IoT stuff.
You do great work.
