f8b+ antenna on the board
« on: October 11, 2018, 06:55:10 PM »
Hey dan or others :)


Have it running here with a single distribution board and working well. neat lil card. however there seems to be an antenna on the board and I didn't think this had built in wireless. What is it then?  I'm using a usb edimax or something for wifi, but that lil antenna has me wondering.


Thanks
Tory


More questions to come as I plan on running some DMX fog machines off it, so DMX is all new to me :)




Hmm wouldn't take the image attachment so here is a link.

If your talking about the thing standing up next to the USB and Green pixel ports then that is a voltage regulator if I'm not mistaken.

You picture is of a F8-PB+  (PB is for Pocket Beagle)
I have one running a few feet away from me and the only thing I see that looks "antenna like" is the Voltage Regulator.

There is a Pocket Beagle Wireless board but that isn't what came on the board. I use an Edimax dongle.

Have a link to the printed adapter from the PS to the F8-PB?

Yes that's it, I figured it out before I left for the weekend. I went back and examined it. You guys are right, I was being a moron :) (It happens).


Thanks
