This BSP provides a basis for development, deployment and execution of Linux based applications on the phyFLEX-i.MX6 System on Module (SOM). For detailed information on the various software components included in the release and how to use them, please refer to the Quickstart.


This Release is compatible with the following hardware:

BSP Release VersionBSP Release DateSOM PCB VersionFLEX Mapper Board VersionFLEX Baseboard Version
PD13.2.3February 28th, 20141362.21367.31364.4
1362.11367.2 [A]1364.3 [B]
1367.1 [B]1364.2 [A]

[A] 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.[B] 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).

  • 4 GB RAM modules

Known Issues

  • [1] i.MX6 Quad is only tested with 1 GB RAM values
  • WLAN does not operate in multirole mode
  • CAN will not work correct with 1 Mbit/s
  • Using Barebox to flash Barebox to NAND does not work
  • Saving default environment to SD Card does not work
  • [2] Hset_OUT makes problems with some MONO audio files
  • OpenCV is disabled, for more information see "Info_to_openCV" in the BSP folder

Upgrade and Compatibility Information

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.
