Getting Started with Cubieboard by Olliver M. Schinagl

Getting Started with Cubieboard by Olliver M. Schinagl
Requirements: .PDF reader, 4.8 Mb
Overview: Embedded platforms are interesting because they combine two fun fields. On one side, there is open source software, and on the other side, there is open source hardware. But a little further from that, we have electronics (AVR-microcontrollers), which can be very interesting and fun to work with. Cubieboard is a powerful single board computer, similar to Raspberry Pi, that supports multiple operating systems, such as Ubuntu and Debian.
This book will teach you everything you need to know about project development using Cubieboard, even if you are not an embedded platform expert.
The book starts by going over the most well-known Allwinner development boards, helps you choose a board, and recommends additional required hardware. Next, the book briefly explains how to "talk" to the board. Then, things start to get interesting with the installation of a desktop OS onto an SD card and booting into a fully graphical desktop system. Concluding this work, the last chapter gives you an example of how to connect external peripherals such as an LED.
