Beagle Bone Serial Port Tender

Beagle Bone Serial Port Tender

4 Nov 2013



We are experimenting with a serial port (RS232) connection between a Beagle Bone Black and a Windows PC.

The Beagle Bone Black is running Android and has a capacitive touch screen expansion cape. A standard

DB9 serial cable links the Beagle Bone Black expansion board to a Windows 7 PC. To test the serial port connection, we are running the Serial Port API app on Android and Tera Term on Windows 7.

Ultimately we are aiming to write a Java application running on Android that will communicate over RS232 to a scientific instrument.



We have been unable to communicate between the Beagle Bone and PC using RS232

We do not know if the serial port device is available or running on our Android build.

Freelancer Requirements


Resolve the issues we are facing by:

Confirm if serial communications are possible using Android on Beagle Bone Black

Build any Android binaries we may require

Provide details on any extra software or hardware that is needed

Create a set of instructions on how to achieve communication over the serial port

Provide an example Java Android app demonstrating serial communications.



Below are details about the hardware, Android operating system and software used.

Hello I think it's possible, but hard to say without this device. Anyway if com port doesn't work correct directly we can make some hardware CAN<->RS232 for transfer data outside the beagle bone. Thank you.
