Demand Peripherals     Robotics and Automation Made Easy

dpserver: Dpserver is the user-space daemon that converts ASCII strings on a TCP connection into the low level packets that read and write registers in the FPGA. You can get, install, and test dpserver with the following commands:

        tar —xzf dpdrivers-latest.tgz
        cd dpserver
        sudo make install
        # connect Baseboard to your PC
        sudo chmod 666 /dev/ttyUSB0
        stty -F /dev/ttyUSB0 raw     # no CR-to-CRLF translation
        cat DPCore.fpga > /dev/ttyUSB0  # green LED turns on
        # start dpserver and test Baseboard LEDs
        dpserver /dev/ttyUSB0
        /usr/local/bin/dpset bb4io leds 55
