  • Multi-Core Communication enabled for Linux (Cortex-A5) and MQX (Cortex-M4)

Known Issues

  • During a cold boot, the system will sometimes hang after DDR initialization

Workaround: Press the RESET button (button S2; labeled RST on the carrier board PCB) to issue a warm reset, and the system will then boot successfully.

  • First boot requires display connection (Theatre Images)

Due to ts_calibrate being part of the initial board startup, the LCD-017-070 display must be connected to the Carrier Board during the first boot.Workaround (if there is no display available): Use the host machine to remove the following startup scripts from the filesystem:/etc/init.d/S70-calibrate-touchscreen/etc/init.d/S70-detect-mouse/etc/init.d/S98-timesys-theatre/etc/init.d/K02-timesys-theatre/etc/init.d/K30-calibrate-touchscreen/etc/init.d/K30-detect-mouse

  • Touch on the display may be unresponsive after closing the timesys-theatre-demo.

Workaround: Reboot the system.

  • Audio may fail to work correctly after closing an audio file while it is playing.

Workaround: Reboot the system.
