Based near Palo Alto, California, gumstix is privately owned and operated. The strategy we think we want to follow is: Digital channels 0 to 7 correspond to Robostix Port A from port A. You can also use real-time priorities even on user-mode threads to increase their priority and make them run quickly. In less than 40 years, SFU has gained an international reputation for its strengths in the liberal arts and sciences, as well as for its innovative interdisciplinary and professional programs.

For projects seeking higher speed wireless connectivity, robostix and the gumstix connex platform may tumstix connected to the cfstix expansion board, which offers a compact flash adapter that may be driven by a wide range of WiFi compact flash cards.

So what you should do is write a driver, and have the driver present its data through the ‘read’ function. Link to this page.

To set the digital output values when the model is loaded or unloaded, set the Initial digital outputs and Final digital outputs to the desired values respectively. Using approach Roboetix seems like the right thing to do from my perspective.

You’d then write a user-mode app which opens the drivers, reads data from it, and writes the data to the SD card. B4 User-mode program uses i2c to get data from Robostix B5 User-mode program processes and logs data B6 User-mode program writes parameters to Robostix.


The Autonomy Lab builds life-like machines. They have potentially blocking code paths, so it’s illegal to call these from an ISR. Please note that only one Robostix card can be connected to a Verdex board and is supported in the system.

For that, here is proposed Approach B: Once this is done, the i2c-load program, as described on the Gumstix’s wiki website should then be used to install the open-source i2c-io. You can also use real-time priorities even on user-mode threads to increase their priority and make them run quickly. Note that the Linux Verdex target must be selected to use the Robostix board, as it is connected to the Verdex board. SFU offers programs at the graduate and undergraduate level to approximately 25, students.

The Robostix driver currently supports two 2 clocks, which are both only used rrobostix generate the PWM output s.

Specifically, it is set to 50 Hz, which is equivalent to a PWM output period of 20 ms.

For more information, visit http: For example, enter 0: Free forum by Nabble. On the Verdex side, the robostix.

The Robostix driver supports six 6 PWM output channels, using two of the Robostix hardware clocks, i. The PWM output frequency a. Specify [8, 11, 14] gumtix indicate that channels 8, 11, and 14 are to be configured as digital inputs.

But we’re not doing too bad for a couple of mechanical guys: This will be MUCH faster than launching a program every time you want to issue an i2c command.

We have managed to confuse ourselves deeply on the ways to do this, so any advice will be much appreciated. It also does lots of other stuff which isn’t part of the IRQ. Then the code that processes that command will copy the data from the variable back to the gumstix. Hence, set the PWM output mode field to 0 the duty cycle output mode. Set the PWM output channels field to all the PWM output channels that will be used on the ggumstix for the current diagram.

Only the PWM output clock gumtix is supported at present.

Logging Data and Passing Variables using Gumstix and Robostix?

Gumstix announces Robostix robotics board [Posted June 29, by cook]. We also haven’t figured out if gpio-event is a true ISR or if it is a monitoring loop instead.

Hence, PWM output channels range from 0 to 5. Clock 1 corresponds to Robostix Timer 3.

The features of the Gumstix Robostix are:.
