How Can I boot the SABRE i.mx6 Automotive Infortaintment Development Board

Hi All;

We purchased SABRE main and Cpu board. It has default boot configuration and it has a SanDisk Sd card labeled as Linux 110-77474 C . When We power on the board, there is no response from SABRE card. Main and Cpu board power leds are working properly , ethernet card leds are on during 1 second. After this step there is no response from serial port , ethernet, Hdmi. I could not find any further information on the web. I double checked S1 , S2 and S3 switches, everything seems like ok. Could you give me any suggest ?

My Board Details:

SABRE|Automotive-Infotainment|i.MX6|Freescale

Please check the attachment for my board image.

Best Regards.

Ahmet Koç.

Hi Ahmet,

You could try regenerating the bootable SD card, for example, with a newer BSP like Linux 3.14.28. You could download the Linux or Android demo images for regenerating the SD cards using Linux dd command or the MFGtool on Windows. Please refer to the “DEMO_BSPs” downloadable from “Operating System Software-Board Support Packages” section of the following link:

SABRE  Reference Design|Freescale

You could use the Linux dd command in the following way:

    $ sudo dd if=<image name>.sdcard of=/dev/sd<partition> bs=1M && sync

For more information, you could refer to section 6.1 “Flashing an SD card image” of “Freescale Yocto Project User's Guide” document. For the MFGtool usage, please refer to section 4.2.2 “Using MFGTool” of “i.MX Linux User's Guide” document.

Hope this will be useful for you.
Best regards!
/Carlos

Additionally, you should ensure the voltage range of the power supply. If you are using just the CPU board, it requires a 5V power supply. However, if using the base board, a 12V power supply is required on this base board.


Hope this will be useful for you.
Best regards!
