Use Linker Kit on Beaglebone with Linker base shield for Beaglebone

Recommended Posts

Linker kit  is a set of LEDs, sensors, actuators, displays, etc modules that defined to have a common interface. It makes very convenient to conduct projects without the breadboarding or  soldering. In this post, we will look at how to use linker kit modules on beaglebone with the help of a linker base shield that is designed for beaglebone.



There is a jumper header on the linker base shield for Beaglebone to select the logic level of the interface to be 3.3V or 5V.

1. Software environment


We are going to use the Adafruit Beaglebone IO python by issuing the following commands on a terminal on Beaglebone:

$sudo apt-get update
$sudo apt-get install python-imaging python-imaging-tk python-pip python-dev git
$sudo pip install Adafruit_BBIO

To check if the installation is successful or not by typing:

$import Adafruit_BBIO



2. Hardware
