Buildroot and Yocto

The Linux BSP (fsimx6ul-V2.1) is based on Buildroot, a software to create root filesystems. Up to circa 1400 different software packages can be added menu-driven to the root filesystem. The functions range from libraries, tools and utilities to a complete Java environment and full graphic environments like Qt or X11. Even large applications such as a HTML5-capable web browser are part of Buildroot. This provides an easy way to build a customized Linux system. As alternative to Buildroot, there is also a Yocto based environment.

Our standard configuration should give you a first impression of the function range of the module, it contains among other features: Busybox, gdb, alsa-utils, gstreamer, fbv, X11R7, matchbox, feh, openssl, openssh, ncurses, can-utils, iproute2, ftpd, httpd, telnet, tftp, and more.

The BSP contains the F&S customized source code packages of U-Boot (2014.07), Linux Kernel (based on 4.1.15) and Buildroot (2016.05) or Yocto (2.1). We have also added our Cross-Toolchain, some example applications, and all Binaries in the standard configuration. Last but not least, it includes comprehensive hardware documents and a First-Steps documentation for an easy start.

F&S also offers a Virtual Machine (based on VirtualBox) with a fully working Fedora 23 Linux. All necessary services (NFS, TFTP) and all software packages required to compile our software are already installed. The BSP is unpacked and precompiled, too. No matter if you have a Windows or Linux PC, you just need to download this Virtual Machine Image, import it in VirtualBox and then you can immediately start developing your own applications under Linux.

More information about new BSP release V2.1

Windows Embedded Compact 2013

The highly flexible and hard real-time operating system has kernel, interface drivers and bootloader. It benefits from all the features of a modern CPU, such as ARMv7 THUMB2 command structure or NEON co-processor.
Complete images and the BSP are available in our download area.
Development is done with the latest Microsoft tools like Visual Studio 2015 (C, C++, C# or VB.NET) and Expression Blend 5.
Interfaces like I²C, CAN or SPI can be used in the same way like a RS232 interface.
XAML for Windows Embedded helps to separate visualisation and program the easy way.
Our FailSafe Flash File System F3S is also available in Compact 2013.

Easy, Functional.. ..Universal, Small

efus™A7UL is another compact and inexpensive module in efus™ form factor. It is perfectly suited for applications with numerous interfaces in medicine and industry. It is based on the lean NXP i.MX 6Ultralite/ i.MX 6ULL CPU.

Easy Base Board

Along with the attribute of an easy baseboard (EasyLayout), efus™ has a size of 47x62mm only and is therefore suitable for compact housings. The low power loss of only 1 Watt (typ.) makes it easy to cool the module.

Innovative Applications Processor

efus™A7UL is based on a NXP applications processor from the very successful i.MX 6 series and has a Cortex-A7 core.

Are you designing cost and space constrained applications where power efficiency, small form factor and security are critical?

The i.MX 6UltraLite is a small, secure and energy-efficient ARM-based applications processor. The i.MX 6ULL is a cost-optimized version with even less power loss.

more information on NXP i.MX 6UltraLite

➜ more information on NXP i.MX 6ULL

 

Long-Term Availability to 2030

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

efus™A7UL comes with up to 1GB RAM and up to 512MB SLC NAND Flash. Up to 32GB eMMC are available additionally.

Various Interfaces

The module offers interfaces like 2x SD Card, 2x 10/100Mb Ethernet, WLAN, BT, 6x Serial, USB2.0 Host/Device, 2x CAN, 2x I²C, 2x SPI and I2S Audio, as well as parallel 8bit camera.

LCD TFTs can be connected via 18/24Bit RGB or 18Bit LVDS. Touch is available externally via I²C.

The customized operating system (Windows Embedded Compact 2013 or Linux) supports all interfaces, guaranteeing an easy software development without a deeper understanding of hardware.

Audio Codec as well as touch controller are found on the base board. Of course, efus™A7UL is pin compatible to efus™A9 and efus™A9X.
