Wire up the solderless breadboard using the header leads as shown below.
You can use male to male jumper wires from the screw terminal to the breadboard. Connect an external 5VDC power supply to DC power jack

We will use pin P8_13 as the PWM output to control the servo. The only other connection that we need from the BBB is GND.

There is more information about all the pins available on the P8 and P9 connecters down each side of the BBB here: http://stuffwemade.net/hwio/beaglebone-pin-reference/
