ECE497 SPI Project
Embedded Linux Class by Mark A. Yoder
For this project we want to further improve documentation available for SPI with the Beagle Bone. In the process of our information gathering we will connect two different product that use SPI, one being an SPI radio interface and the other being a SPI LED strand.
So far there exists documentation for the BeagleBoard/SPI. There also exists other documentation regarding the SPI specifications.
The documentation is lacking for the current Beagle Bone platform interfacing with SPI. Additionally there exists virtually no documentation for using a Beagle device with the LPD8806 LED controller.
In conclusion this project should help the Beagle community in general with information sharing and usable research.
Give step by step instructions on how to install your project on the SPEd2 image.
- Include your github path as a link like this: https://github.com/MarkAYoder/gitLearn.
- Include any additional packages installed via opkg.
- Include kernel mods.
- If there is extra hardware needed, include links to where it can be obtained.

Here is where you brag about what your project can do.
Include a YouTube demo.
