The FBDK can be installed and run on the Raspbian operating system for the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, following the instructions for Getting Started on Linux® systems.
Instances of the
DO_PI Service Interface Function
Block (SIFB) types provide facilities for for reading and writing,
respectively, individual bits to and from the Raspberry Pi's General
Purpose I/O (GPIO) ports. These ports are mapped directly to the pin
numbers of the Raspberry Pi 2 GPIO header as shown below. These
blocks use the Java® file system interface to emulate the
Raspberry Pi's command-line GPIO interface, so no additional
libraries are needed for this purpose.
DO_PIL composite FB types
encapsulate instances of
respectively, along with additional functionality that simplifies
the use of GPIO with the Local
Multicast and Tagged Data design patterns.
