    Designing a Custom Carrier Board?

    Check out the "Documentation", "Diagrams and Drawings", and "Design Tools" tabs for specifications and design guidelines.

    Developing Software?

    The BSPs on the "Software" tab can be used as a reference for developing your production ready software application. The BSPs support, and are tested on, standard configurations of the phyCORE-i.MX6 and PHYTEC provides reference images and source code that target PHYTEC evaluation kits featuring PHYTEC SOMs and SBCs. If you are adapting the BSP to your own custom SOM or custom carrier board then you will want to use the closest evaluation kit configuration as your reference and modify the BSP accordingly.
