Setting up your Raspberry Pi EVK¶
This applies to the XC111+XR111 or XC112+XR112 kits (mounted on a Raspberry Pi).
At large, these are the steps you’ll need to take:
- Assemble your evaluation kit
- Set up your Raspberry Pi
- Load the Acconeer Raspberry Pi SDK onto your Raspberry Pi
- Run the streaming server application on your Raspberry Pi
For a single sensor setup, we recommend plugging the sensor into port 1 for simplicity’s sake.
In a terminal, run:
Then, under Interfacing Options, enable SPI and I2C.
SDK v2.8.0 or newer requires
libgpio2. To install:
sudo apt update sudo apt install libgpiod2
If you use the XC112 board with kernel v5.4 or newer, then the following line must
be added to
This can be done by e.g.:
sudo sh -c 'echo "dtoverlay=spi0-1cs,cs0_pin=8" >> /boot/config.txt'
Reboot to the let the changes take effect.
Running the streaming server application¶
For the XC112+XR112 kit, start the streaming server application on your Raspberry Pi located under
utils in the SDK archive:
$ cd path/to/the/sdk $ ./utils/acc_streaming_server_rpi_xc112_r2b_xr112_r2b_a111_r2c
If you have an XC111+XR111 kit, the streaming server will instead be named
Find the IP address of your Raspberry Pi by running
ip a in its terminal.
