[1] DDR3 and Ethernet layout differences are present. BSP modifications are available to remove Ethernet skew settings that are not required for 1362.1 SOM. Please use BSP Download SOM revision 1362.1 images that have modified versions of Barebox and Linux kernel.[2] Does not fully support PCIe. FLEX Mapper board does not include nPCIe0_PERST. FLEX Baseboard missing 100Ω termination resistor on PCIe clock and reset for an extra PCIe.[3] Hardware interface does not support Camera0 interface extension and full 18-bit Camera0 (missing J6 and J7 for CSI0_DAT3 and CSI0_DAT2 signal multiplexing). Different reset out circuitry for Camera0 and Camera1. JP12 does not exist (X_CAMERA1_CLK & X_CAMERA0_CLK).

Upgrade and Compatibility Information

The BSP is specific to SOM: 1362.2 and Baseboard 1364.4 and will retain compatibility with future released PCB revisions. Workaround is available to use this BSP with 1362.1 SOM; 1367.1 and 1367.2 Mapper, 1364.2 and 1364.3 Baseboard. This BSP is not backwards compatible and has no workaround for 1362.0 SOM and 1364.1 Baseboard due to a change in PCB pinout, see Modification of the pinout for the phyFLEX-i.MX6 (PLF-A-XL1).



Validation Information

Drivers have been tested with in-house test cases.
