Buildroot und Yocto

Das Linux-BSP "fsimx8m-B2020.01-pre" basiert auf Buildroot, einer Software zur Erstellung von Root-Filesystemen. Über Buildroot können menügesteuert ca. 1400 verschiedene Softwarepakete dem Root-Filesystem hinzugefügt werden. Der Funktionsumfang reicht hier von einfachen Bibliotheken und Utilities über eine komplette Java-Umgebung bis hin zu vollständigen grafischen Umgebungen wie Qt oder Wayland / Weston, inklusive Applikationen wie z.B. einem HTML5-fähigen Webbrowser. Auf diese Weise lässt sich sehr einfach ein maßgeschneidertes Linux-System zusammenstellen.

Alternativ zu Buildroot wird es auch eine Yocto-basierte Umgebung geben. Wir bieten das Linux BSP fsimx8m-Y2020.xx an, das auf Yocto basiert.

Unsere Standardkonfiguration, die einen ersten Eindruck vom Funktionsumfang der Baugruppe geben soll, enthält unter anderem folgende Features: Busybox, gdb, alsa-utils, gstreamer, fbv, matchbox, feh, openssl, openssh, ncurses, can-utils, iproute2, ftpd, httpd, telnet, tftp, u.v.m.

Beide BSPs beinhaltet die von F&S angepassten Quelltextpakete von U-Boot (2018.03), Linux-Kernel (basierend auf 4.14.78) und Buildroot (2019.05.01) oder Yocto (2.2). Außerdem ist unsere Cross-Toolchain beigefügt, einige Beispielsapplikationen, sowie alle Binaries in der Standardkonfiguration. Und nicht zuletzt sind ausführliche Dokumente zur Hardware enthalten sowie die First-Steps-Dokumentation für den leichten Einstieg.

F&S wird eine Virtuelle Maschine (basierend auf VirtualBox) mit einem installierten Linux basierend auf der Distribution Fedora 27 zum kostenlosen Download anbieten. Alle zum Übersetzen unserer Software notwendigen Pakete sind bereits installiert. Ebenfalls sind alle Services (NFS, TFTP) zum Arbeiten mit unseren Boards installiert. Unser BSP liegt ausgepackt und vorkompiliert in den richtigen Verzeichnissen. Mit dieser virtuellen Maschine spielt es keine Rolle ob sie als Host Windows oder Linux verwenden. Einfach die VHD downloaden, in VirtualBox importieren und die Entwicklung kann sofort beginnen.

Single Board Computer... ...for complex requirements

The advantage of single board computers (SBC) is that they can be used without a base board and are thus particularly suitable for fast "time-to-market".

Asymmetric Multiprocessing

NXP's i.MX 8MP multimedia CPU (4x ARM® Cortex®-A53 (64-bit) with 1.8GHz & Cortex®-M7 CPU) is ideally suited for applications with demanding graphics in building automation as well as in industrial and medical technology.

more information about the NXP i.MX 8M Plus application processor

This powerful module in the PicoITX form factor is particularly suitable for complex multimedia tasks and is ideal for applications with demanding graphics in building automation, for all types of HMI in industry and medical technology, as well as POS and POI terminals.

Numerous Interfaces

The armStone™MX8MP is equipped with up to 8GByte LPDDR4 RAM and up to 32GB eMMC.

 

Other interfaces of the armStone™MX8MP are WLAN (802.11 ac/a/b/g/n (2.4/ 5GHz)), BT (5.0 LE), Gigabit Ethernet, SD card, 4x USB host, USB device, 2x CAN, 3x serial, 4x I²C, 2x SPI, audio, MIPI-CSI camera and PCIe with SIM card slot.

LVDS (24bit), DVI and MIPI-CSI are available for display control.

As with all armStone™ single board computers, many of the signals are on common connectors or on the 66-pin feature bus. The armStone™MX8MP is powered by 5V (a 12/24V adapter is offered as an accessory), and power consumption is only a few watts. With a temperature range of up to -20°C - +70°C and -25°C - +85°C in the I-Temp. version, the armStone™MX8MP can also be used outdoors.

Linux Yocto

An adapted Linux Yocto is available as an operating system. Bootloader, device tree, adapted interface drivers and all tools necessary for development are available.

Various security functions are available and are made available by the Linux adaptation of F&S Elektronik Systeme.

With the F&S project guarantee, F&S Elektronik Systeme accompanies the customer from the project start to the successful completion of the project.
For this purpose, a starter kit and workshop, documents for hardware and software development, and free support by the experienced engineers of F&S Elektronik Systeme GmbH are available.
