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.

SBC.... ...for Complex Tasks

The advantage of Single Board Computers (SBC) is, that they can be applied without a base board, and therefore they are especially suited for quick "Time-To-Market".

Asymmetric Multiprocessing

armStone™MX8M is based on a multimedia CPU i.MX 8M from NXP (4x ARM Cortex-A53 (64 Bit) with 1.5GHz & Cortex-M4 CPU) .

The advantage of this architecture is the strict isolation of real-time tasks – for example a control algorithm – from the rest of the system.

The NXP i.MX 8M processor provides industry-leading audio, voice and video processing for applications  and is therefore suitable for a wide range of applications.

More Information on NXP i.MX 8M Applications Processor

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

Numerous Interfaces

armStone™MX8M comes with up to 8GByte LPDDR4, up to 1GB SLC NAND Flash and up to 32GB eMMC.

 

Further interfaces of armStone™MX8M are WLAN (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n), BT (2.1+EDR, 4.1 LE), Gigabit Ethernet, SD-Card, 4x USB Host, USB Device OTG, CAN, 3x Serial, 4x I²C, 2x SPI, Audio, MIPI-CSI Camera and PCIe with SIM Card slot.

Two independent LVDS interfaces (24bit) and DVI are available fpr 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™MX8M is powered by 5V (a pluggable 12/24V adapter is offered as an accessory), the power consumption is only a few watts. With a temperature range of up to -20°C - +70°C, the armStone™MX8M can also be used outdoors.

Linux Buildroot/ Yocto

An adapted Linux Buildroot/ Yocto is available. Bootloader, device tree, adapted interface drivers and all tools necessary for development are available, as well as various security functions.

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 an easy development F&S offers starterkits and workshops, documents for hardware and software development and free support by their experienced engineers.
