A plug in daughter/base board for both the standard Beagleboard and the xM Beagleboard. The purpose of this board is to provide an easy interface to generic LCD/TFT displays. In addition, to bring out level shifted OMAP SPI and i2c interfaces. There is an onboard Microchip dsPIC30F6014A ™ processor that communicates with the OMAP via the OMAP’s SPI3.0 port.
This project has now grown to include the Beaglebone with a similar expansion board (cape) which uses the Microchip PIC32MX150 as the support chip on the expansion board. The following displays have been configured and tested: Newhaven 3.5 inch 320×240, Optrex 3.5 inch 320×240 and the Optrex 5 inch 800×480.
