Banana Pro Blueprints

By: Tony Zhang

Overview of this book

This book follows a tactical plan that will guide you through the implementation of Banana Pro and its configurations. You will then learn the various programming languages used with Banana Pi with the help of examples. In no time at all, you’ll be working on a wireless project that implements AirPlay servers, hotspots, and so on. Following this, you’ll develop a retro-style arcade kiosk game. Then we’ll move on to explore the multimedia features of Banana Pro by designing and building an enclosure for it. After this, you’ll learn to build a remote-controlled smart car and we’ll examine how to control a robotic arm. The book will conclude with the creation of a home sensor system that has the ability to expand or shrink to suit any home.

Loading a program into the laser CPU

In order to establish communication between laser CPU and Banana Pro, we should first load the bootloader and driving programs into the laser CPU.

Loading bootloader

Follow these steps to load the bootloader:

  1. Connect the laser CPU to the USBtinyISP, and then, connect the USBtinyISP to the PC, as follows:

  2. After connecting USBtinyISP to the PC, we can verify whether the connection is successful by checking the Windows device manager (by navigating to My Computer | Property | Manager):

  3. Double-click the Arduino program and be ready to configure the Tools setting:

  4. Select the Arduino Nano boards configuration by navigating to Tools | Board | Arduino Nano.

  5. Select the USBtinyISP programmer by navigating to Tools | Programmer | USBtinyISP.

  6. To select Burn Bootloader, click on Tools, then select Burn Bootloader.

    Then, wait for a few minutes until the the burning process has been completed. We will see the following output if it is burned successfully:
