Hi,

I'm using Taiyo Yuden module WYSBMVGX4 (which has Marvell SoC 88W8787 module integrated), for Wifi interface with i.Mx6Q (MCIMX6Q6AVT10AD) over SDIO interface.

Has anybody used WYSBMVGX4 module for interfacing the with i.Mx6Q for Wifi interface ?

Does it support i.Mx6Q for Linux OS ??

Can anybody please help me with details.

Hello Nanjunda,

      You should port your WIFI to i.MX6Q linux BSP. For hardware, there are 4 uSDHC ports, you select one to connect your WIFI. By default, on evaluation board, your wifi is not supported in BSP, but don't worry about it.

(1) Ask for WIFI driver from your provider

(2) add GPIO control signals on your circuit to BSP file.( For example, power control, wakeup control etc)

(3) add the driver to linux kernel and compile it as a module(.ko)

(4) use modprobe xxx.ko / insmod xxx.ko to load wifi driver.

(5) test steps

--using wpa_supplicant & wpa_cli to debug your wifi .

or

--using wireless-tools to debug it.(you can download latest source code and compile it)

Regards,

Weidong
