KubOS for the Beaglebone Black

Debug Console Connection

As documented in section 7.5 of the Beaglebone Black System Reference Manual, an FTDI cable can be connected to the serial debug connector in order to establish a debug console connection.

This connection will be passed through to a Kubos Vagrant image as /dev/FTDI.

Ethernet Connection

Please refer to our ethernet overview for help setting up an SSH connection over ethernet.


By default, KubOS exposes the following peripheral components:

  • Ethernet
  • 2 I2C buses
  • 1 SPI bus
  • 5 UART buses
  • 7 ADC pins
  • Many GPIO pins

More information about these peripheral devices can be found in the Working with the Beaglebone Black doc.
