Most common issues with bringup and memory stability come down to memory/system setup during startup phase of i.MX device.

 

This Python script allows you to dump IVT/DCD tables and data from a i.MX binary (either generated as result of build process or a simple dump of SD/NOR/NAND... content) and analyze them in an easier way. Should work with i.MX 6 and i.MX53 binaries.

 

Parser for i.MX 6 will also try to print out register values it recognizes, and also parse specific register fields, helping to analyze the data faster. This can be extended if needed to other registers/values.

 

imxbin.py works with Python3.x and imxbin_2x.py with Python 2.x, so choose appropriate version.
