    Note

    When connecting the 4-wire touch cable please note the location of the yellow wire to determine the location of pin 1.

     

  4. Turn the phyBOARD-Mira and display so it is face up. It should look like the following.

  5. The BSP has already been configured to support the display but it must be enabled as an expansion in Barebox. To activate the display enter the following in Barebox. See the phyBOARD-Mira i.MX6 Quickstart for more information.

    edit /env/config-expansions
  6. Add the following line.

    . /env/expansions/imx6qdl-mira-enable-lvds	# Enable for 10" LVDS Display AUO G104SN02-V2 with resistive touch
    
  7. Save and exit using CTRL+D
  8. Restart the board
  9. On the first boot a touch screen calibration is recommended. To run this the default Qt application must be stopped. After calibration it can be restarted.

    systemctl stop qt5demo.service
    ts_calibrate
    systemctl start qt5demo.service 

For additional information on using display, touch, and backlight control refer to the phyBOARD-Mira i.MX6 Application Guide.
