I am looking for a development Kit to run a small video in an LCD window.  I am mostly a hardware engineer and it has been 6 years since I developed code.   I am thinking the K70 is where I am starting.  The demo online does what I want.  I also want a USB peripheral.  The question is what is the best way to learn how to do this large task.  I am also looking into Easy GUI or embedded wizard.

Hi Luis

I looked at both K70 and the MX6 and I decided to go with the MCIMX6UL mostly on your recommendation and the fact that the chip cost less than the K70.  I want to . use the following kits to get started

LCD8000-43T

i.MX6UltraLite Evaluation Kit (EVK)

What kind of compiler does this require

I would like to follow a path that is well explored.   You mentioned an embedded Linux solution.   Would that have some sample software that I could use? 

My goal is to use the kits to get more familiar with the processes.

Does the MQX require an operating system?   I like the prices on this part better.

Hi,

MQX is an operating system.  www.nxp.com/mqx

eGUI is the graphic library. www.nxp.com/egui

eGUI doesn't need an Operating system.

Hi Daniel Morley ,

We don't have a video player solution for the K70. It is possible with some limitations to play videos. Cortex M4 doesn't have enough performance for running video decoders.

You can check with Motomic. A  better solution would be the MCIMX6UL running Linux.

You can also check the LPC based solution:

I decided to ax the video. Sounds too complicated.  Do you offer a LCD color display interface solution.   Defiantly trying to work with out an operating system.

Hello,

You can use eGUI with MQX or bare metal.  Use the latest sources:
