    Eprom on Joule Board

    BA2

      This is the first time we are developing an Intel system. What is the purpose of the Eprom on the Joule expansion board?? Does it contain the code for the BIOS?

          Hello BA2,

          Thank you for your interest in Intel® Joule™ Products.

          The EEPROM includes board and manufacturer information, ID’s for non-discovered devices, modified GPIO, and interface bus configurations.

          It also can be used to identify the expansion board to the Intel Joule module, and to configure the module GPIO signals to the specific requirements of the expansion board.

          For more information regarding the configuration EEPROM, please check the following links from the Online Guide for the Intel® Joule™ Module:

            I am attempting to get J13.40 to be configured as a GPIO Input on power up, and need to perform configuration, using the EEPROM at power up. Currently the pin always is read "high" even though the multi-meter indicates the pin is correctly pulled low for J13.40

             

            There is mention of:

             

            The EEPROM configuration tool is still under development and currently only the reference configurations are available.

             

            Is there any update status on this "tool"?

             

            Note: we are using UBUNTU as the OS.

              Hello floydg,

              There isn’t an estimate date of arrival for the configuration EEPROM tool.

              Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

              Regards,
              Andres V.
