NanoPi Neo 2 - set input pull-up via Device Tree

Recommended Posts

I had a hard time to figure out how to set the input pull-up on GPIO 1 of the NanoPi neo2. In the end it appeared to be extremely simple, but in order to help other beginners I like to share how I accomplished it.

1) I created a dts file with the input pull-up definition for GPIO 1
2) I compiled the dts with the "armbian-add-overlay" tool
3) rebooted the NanoPi Neo2 

That's it.

The dts file can be placed anywhere on the Nanopi Neo2 eg. /home/pi/sun50i-h5-nanopi-neo2-pullup.dts

nano /home/pi/sun50i-h5-nanopi-neo2-pullup.dts

The content of sun50i-h5-nanopi-neo2-pullup.dts looks like this:


/ {                                                                             
        compatible = "allwinner,sun50i-h5";                                     
          fragment@0 {                                                          
            target = <&pio>;                                                    
            __overlay__ {                                                       
              input_0: input_0 {                                                
                pins = "PA1";                                                   
                function = "gpio_in";                                           

note that PIN "PA1" = GPIO 1 (BCM) 

now save the file (press ctrl-x, press y, press enter)


start the "armbian-add-overlay" tool

sudo armbian-add-overlay /home/pi/sun50i-h5-nanopi-neo2-pullup.dts

when the tool finishes, you will have to reboot to apply the changes.

That's it, I hope you save some time with this monkey proof explanation.

it is easy to convert BCM to PIN, e.g. GPIO 200 (BCM) = PIN "PG8" 
The letters A - G have the following values A=0, B=1, C=2 ... G=6
The value of the letter must be multiplied by 32, so G = 6x32 = 192
The value behind the letter is added to the value of the letter, in this case for PG8: 192 + 8 = 200
So BCM GPIO 200 is the same pin as PG8.
To derive the PIN from BCM you just do it the other way around.

GPIO 6 (BCM) = PIN "PA6"
GPIO 201 (BCM) = PIN "PG9"
