Some things to keep in mind while reading this guide:

  • When working with dip switches (the ones with numbers on one side), ON means the switch is away from the number
  • Das U-Boot (or just U-Boot) is the default boot loader used on Blackfin systems
  • Linux is the open source operating system typically run by U-Boot
  • Terminal emulators are programs that let you communicate with the board over the serial port
