Easily and quickly connect devices and sensors to the Beaglebone Black.
We love the Beaglebone Black. With all of its I/O connections it offers exciting potential for embedded/connected devices. The two PRU I/O Coprocessors have potential for Input/Output that no other board in its class can offer. It even has real mounting holes which let the board be used for real-world applications.
When we got our first Beaglebone Black we were excited to try it with some of our Arduino GVS (Ground/Voltage/Signal) sensors and GVS output devices but couldn't since they are all 5V sensors. Sure we could cobble together some level shifters on a breadboard but in the end we wouldn't have something that could be deployed in a real application What we really wanted was a 5V Sensor shield like the one we use for our Arduino. But there were none out there. So we designed one.
Introducing the BBB-GVS cape.
We set this product to accept backorders. The Kickstarter didn't fund so we expect some folks from the Kickstarter to want a card. We went out on risk and bought 20 PWBs. When they run out the boards will go on backorder.

We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
I have been designing electronics circuit cards for over 30 years with many successful card designs. Check out my webpage to see the sort of cards I have designed and built. I also have a BS in Electrical Engineer and a Master's Degree in Computer Engineering from USC.
My three sons and I run land-boards to make the sort of boards that we find useful. My oldest son is an experienced programmer and is a Python wizard. He writes our test code. My middle son works professionally as an electronics assembler and he is working his way towards getting an Electrical Engineering degree. My younger son is only in High School but he's a very good computer programmer as well.
We do good stuff, together.
