Find available devices on the USB Bus

lsusb -v


Read Time from RTC

hwclock -r

Write current Time to RTC

hwclock -w


Read Voltage

Different voltages can be read from the board, just change in0 to any of in0 - in12
The voltages read are current voltage * 1000

cat /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/device/in0_label
cat /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/device/in0_input

Read Temperature

The temp read is current temp * 10

cat /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/device/temp0_input

Set Fan Setpoint

The fan controller has 5 setpoints ranging from 50% on to 100% on, corresponding with fan0_point0 (50%) to fan0_poing5 (100%)

Read Current Setpoint

The setpoint read is current setpoint * 10

cat /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/device/fan0_point0

Write new Setpoint

Value to write is new temperatore * 10

echo 450 > /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/device/fan0_point0

See a list of currentl used GPIO's:

cat /sys/kernel/debug/gpio

Export A GPIO for user control

echo 8 > /sys/class/gpio/export # export gpio 8 which will get configured as an input

Set Direction of GPIO

echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio8/value # make gpio8 an output
echo in > /sys/class/gpio/gpio8/value # make gpio8 an input

Set Output of GPIO

echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio8/value # set gpio8 to logic low
echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio8/value # set gpio8 to logic high

Check GPIO

cat /sys/kernel/debug/gpio # see all gpio's
cat /sys/class/gpio/gpio8/value # see state of gpio8
