- All weekly reports will be sent to the mailing list (as that is our primary support venue outside of live chat) on a single thread (to avoid e-mail thrash).
- They must be sent on Monday to allow for mentors to respond ahead of Wednesdays IRC meeting where all blockers will be discussed live.
- They must include the following sections:
- Resolutions to blockers
- On-going blockers
- Plans for the next week

The idea of this project is to make
- The same userspace code work with both BeagleBone Black and BeagleBone AI, using the same references to drivers for peripherals assigned to the same header pins between BBB and BBAI.
- The same DT overlay work for both BBB and BBAI. For capes, uBoot Cape manager will also be updated to support BBAI so that DT overlays will be automatically loaded during boot.
Introductory YouTube video.
- Testing Capes on BBB (Comms,
Servo, Load, Realy, Motor, and LCD4).
- Cleaning up code in beagle-tester and creating new examples.
- Creating new userspace examples for BBB.
- Testing new beagle-tester code on BBB.
- Finalizing BeagleBoard-DeviceTrees/src/arm/am5729-beagleboneai.dts.
- Testing the BBAI pin control using libgpiod.
- Testing user space examples with BeagleBone AI.
- Testing comms cape on BBAI.
- Testing Servo cape on BBAI.
- Testing Motor cape on BBAI.
- Testing Load cape on BBAI.
- Testing Relay cape on BBAI.
- Testing LCD4 cape on BBAI.
- Creating buses DT overlay for BBAI.
- Testing BBAI u-boot peripheral support.
- BBAI u-boot SPL cape manager compatibility.
- Final YouTube video.

Idea of this project is to implement a compiled language which will compile down to PRU assembly. PRU programming is a uphill task and quite tough for beginners, this language intends to simplify this, by providing a high level language with simple syntax. This will make it easy to get beginners onboard with PRU

Media IP Streaming
This project aims in porting the existing drivers for the CTAG Face audiocard to the 4.19-rt kernel for Beaglebone AI. Furthermore, the AVB protocol, implementented during a former GSoC Project, should also be ported and optimised to 4.19-rt kernel. More information about the project can be found here.
