FreeBSD 11 was released recently. I ran pre-released FreeBSD 11 on Raspberry Pi already. And I have noted that it behaviour changes from snapshot to snapshot.
Let’s see how released FreeBSD 11 works on Raspberry Pi Model B.
One new thing arriving in the FreeBSD 11 is a support for 1-Wire devices.
To check it I used Raspberry Pi Model B and DS18B20 temperature sensors.
Here is a description how to work with it. Continue reading
My previous web application for control GPIO was monolithic.
This mean that server-side and client-side was in one script.
But modern Web application going to be dynamic with Representational State Transfer (REST).
Here is a description of a simple REST API service for Raspberry Pi with FreeBSD.
We know how to control GPIO in FreeBSD from command line and C programs.
But it’s better to use Raspberry Pi as a standalone server and control it through web interface.
Here is a description how to control GPIO through web in Raspberry Pi with FreeBSD.
Here is a description how to work with Pi-Lite connected to Raspberry Pi with FreeBSD.
FreeBSD supports GPIOLED(4).
Here is a description how to work with it on the Raspberry Pi (for example).
Raspberry Pi is based on Broadcom BCM2835 chip.
We can find description of Broadcom BCM2835 Peripherals here.
There are 54 general-purpose I/O (GPIO) lines split into two banks.
Here is instruction how to work with GPIO on Raspberry Pi with FreeBSD.
