    One of the best things about Beaglebone Board is the massive accessible GPIOs coming out from its 2x 46 pin headers. However, as we know, all things has two sides - the good side and the bad side. 2x46 pins means 2x46 jumper wires, and 2x46 jumper wires putting on the board means – A REAL MESS. How can a rapid prototyping be called ‘rapid’ if you spend most of your time dealing with entangled wires? Now this Grove Base Cape for Beaglebone v2.0 is designed for real rapid prototyping with your Beaglebone board.

    The cape has brought the simplicity of Grove system to your Beaglebone projects, just attach it directly onto your Beaglebone v2.0, and then you can have 12 easy-to-use Grove connectors to do plug-and-play with the big family of Grove modules. The connectors include 2x UART, 2x ADC, 4x Digital I/O and 4x I2C that interface to the pins on your Beaglebone board, offering almost everything you need. There are two switches used to reset the I2C address in case of address conflicts. The board also integrates a switch for voltage transition - from a normal 5V to 3.3V.

    Questions and Answers
    I have problems with the cape.When using any of the I / O to read a grove button, this port is in 5v digital ports always after pressing the button.When I check with my multimeter apparently discharged and again have 0vAny suggestions?In addition I would ask to repair the link to the schematic of this cape because the wiki does not work.

    Change the Grove button Signal pulldown resistance 10k to 1k.Let us know the results.

    Please download schematic from the following link

    thanks for the schematic and tips Law Yan and kavi.

    I changed the 10K resistor in Grove button to 1K and it's working. (please check the .sch file, I think it's empty)

    Now I have the same problem with a AM2302 sensor. I can't use 1-wire throu the Grove Beaglebone Cape

    When use the Grove cape (GPIO_115) not work but when I use another GPIO without the TXB0108PW works and I can read de values. 

    Any suggestions?

    Can I use the cap to connect 5V I2C device? For example Grove - I2C Motor Driver.

    Hello, that depend on the Grove it self, if the grove is working on 3.3/5V, I think it's ok.

    If you want to know if a Grove work at 3.3V, you can refer to its wiki page.

    More question please feel free to contact

    Grove - I2C Motor Driver only work on 5V.
