Pins used by Bela

The BeagleBone provides two expander headers: P8 and P9, while the PocketBeagle has (P1 and P2). Details for the functions of all the pins are available in this somewhat hard-to-parse document.

The Bela cape uses pin 24 on header P8 and pins 10-15-17-18-19-20-21-22-23-24-25-26-28-29-30-31 on header P9, plus power and ground. Additionally, a number of pins are used for the digital I/O: pins 7-8-9-10-11-12-15-16-18-27-28-29-30 on header P8 and pins 12-14-16 on P9. These can be disabled in software if they are needed for other uses.

The Bela multiplexer capelet additionally uses pins 41-42-43-44-45-46 on P8. The Bela audio expander capelet does not use any additional pins from P8 or P9.

The BelaMini pocket cape uses pins 5-6-8-9-10-11-12-26-28-29-33-36 on P1 and pins 26-30-32-34 on P2, plus power and ground. Additionally, a number of pins are used for the digital I/O: pins 1-2-4-6-8-10--18-20-22-24-25-27-35 on header P2 and pins 30-32-35 on P1 and pins P1_02 and P1_04 are used for the on-board LED. These can be disabled in software if they are needed for other uses.

The pin diagram for the I/O and power is available on the on-board IDE and online here.

An up-to-date list of the pins an pinmuxer settings can be found in the Bela device trees and overlays.

Below is a summary of the pins used on Bela:
