This is the latest (main) BeagleBoard documentation. If you are looking for stable releases, use the drop-down menu on the bottom-left and select the desired version.

simppru autodetects BeagleBoard model and automatically configures pin mux using config-pin. This functionality doesn’t work on BeagleBone Blue and AI.

Say we have to compile a example file called test.sim, command will be as follows:

simppru test.sim --load

If we only want to generate binary for pru0

simppru test.sim -o test_firmware -p 0

this will generate a file named test_firmware.pru0
