Buildroot and Yocto

The Linux BSP "fsimx6ul-B2019.11" is based on Buildroot, a software for creating root file systems. About 1400 different software packages can be added to the root file system using menu control. The range of functions ranges from simple libraries and utilities to a complete Java environment to complete graphical environments such as Qt or X11, including applications such as an HTML5-capable web browser. In this way, it is very easy to put together a customized Linux system.

As an alternative to Buildroot, there is also a Yocto-based environment. We offer the Linux BSP fsimx6ul-Y2020.03, which is based on Yocto.

Our standard configuration, which should give a first impression of the functional scope of the module, contains the following features: Busybox, gdb, alsa-utils, gstreamer, fbv, X11R7, matchbox, feh, openssl, openssh, ncurses, can-utils, iproute2, ftpd, httpd, telnet, tftp, and much more

Both BSPs include the source code packages from U-Boot (2018.03), Linux kernel (based on 4.9.88) and Buildroot (2019.05.01) or Yocto (2.4) adapted by F&S. In addition, our cross toolchain is included, some sample applications and all binaries in the standard configuration. And last but not least, detailed documents on the hardware are included as well as the first steps documentation for easy entry.

F&S also offers a virtual machine (based on VirtualBox) with an installed Linux based on the Fedora 27 distribution for free download. All packages necessary to translate our software are already installed. All services (NFS, TFTP) for working with our boards are also installed. Our BSP is unpacked and precompiled in the right directories. With this virtual machine it doesn't matter whether you use Windows or Linux as the host. Simply download the VHD, import it into VirtualBox and development can begin immediately.

Computer on Module with NXP i.MX 6ULL

The PicoCore™ Computer On Module product family has a new member, based on the NXP i.MX 6 ULL ARM® CPU.
It uses a NXP CPU with ARM® Cortex®-A7 core with 900MHz, making PicoCore™MX7UL a very inexpensive COM module. The power loss of only 1W makes it the perfect solution for portable and battery-powered devices.

The i.MX 6ULL is a cost-optimized version with even less power loss.

Therefore it suits very well for projects, where cost and space are constrained and where power efficiency, small form factor and security are critical.

more information on NXP i.MX 6ULL applications processor

Long-term Availability to 2030

Another characteristic of the i.MX 6ULL is the long-time availability to at least 2030.

 

Equipment and Interfaces

The PicoCore™MX6UL comes with sufficient memory (RAM, SLC NAND Flash, eMMC Flash).

The module offers many interfaces on its 2x 80 poles plug connectors.

Part of the interfaces is specified per default (Interfaces-FIX), they are available on other PicoCore™ modules as far as possible. The Interfaces-FIX are 2x Serial (for debugging), 2x Ethernet, 1x USB Host, 1x USB Device, 1x CAN, 1x I²C (for the connection of external touch controllers) and analog audio signals (Line In/ Out/ Mic/ HP).

Due to the multiple assignment of the CPU's signal lines with various interfaces, one has the possibility to choose from the interfaces through registry entries. This part is called Interfaces-FLEX. A list of all possible interfaces and their pin assignment on the plug connector can be found in the hardware specification.

Please notice that not all available interfaces can be used simultaneously.

A 24Bit RGB interface with a resolution up to WXGA is available for display connection.

Operating System

Linux was customized for PicoCore™MX6UL. Windows Embedded Compact 2013 is available upon request. The operating systems support all interfaces, guaranteeing an easy software development without a deeper understanding of hardware.
