Manual for i.MX-based Hardware and BSPs
Attention: Preliminary State
This documentation and the software BSP is in an early state of development. All parts are subject to change without notice. For more information on the development state, please see the Release Notes and the Known Issues.
Mainline Platform Support & Vendor BSP
For our i.MX6 and i.MX8 hardware we are aiming at using mainline components as much as possible. In contrast to the vendor BSP, that heavily relies on unmaintained and unstable code, we are constantly working towards having our boards supported upstream in major software components like the Linux kernel and the U-Boot bootloader.
This means that we benefit from the work of the communities and developers around the world and join them with our own efforts. But it also means that support for certain features of the platform won't be available until an acceptable and stable solution has been found within the communities.
This guide is intended to help developers setup, use and integrate the hardware and software provided by Kontron Electronics, that is based on the NXP i.MX SoCs.
For a more generic overview of the platform-independent parts of the software environment please see the "Main Documentation".
