The CryptoCape For BeagleBone

Originally posted on Hackaday:
[Josh Datko] was wandering around HOPE X showing off some of his wares and was kind enough to show off his CryptoCape to us. It’s an add on board for the BeagleBone that breaks out some common crypto hardware to an easily interfaced package. On board the CryptoCape is an Atmel Trusted Platform Module, an elliptic curve chip, a SHA-256 authenticator, an encrypted EEPROM, a real time clock, and an ATMega328p for interfacing to other components and modules on the huge prototyping area on the cape. [Josh] built the CryptoCape in cooperation with Sparkfun, so if… Continue reading The CryptoCape For BeagleBone

IBM tutorial on using TI SensorTag with BeagleBone Black

IBM has published a tutorial on using Texas Instruments’ (TI) SensorTag kit with BeagleBone Black: https://developer.ibm.com/iot/recipes/ti-beaglebone-sensortag/ The SensorTag kit connects six (6) sensors to TI’s CC2541 Wireless MCU that features Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) connectivity. The sensors are temperature, humidity, pressure, accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer. It seems to me that connecting some of these to a BeagleBone Black could be pretty handy for collecting environmental data, so I decided to try it out. (disclosure: I work on BeagleBone Black and for TI, so I figure my employers wouldn’t mind me doing this on company time either.) Personally, I like to develop … Continue reading IBM tutorial on using TI SensorTag with BeagleBone Black
