Upgrade from i.MX6 Quad to i.MX6 QuadPlus

We are considering move from i.MX6 Quad to i.MX6 QuadPlus, from hardware side it is pin-to-pin compatible with i.MX6 Quad/Dual.

However, on software side, we noticed that this new processor is only officially supported with Android 6.0. Now we are working with Android 5.0.1 on i.MX 6 Dual/Quad. So, if we move to QuadPlus, on software side, what should we change for that new processor?

  • Should we move to Android 6.0 as well?
  • If not, would it be a big work to transfer to the new processor based on Android 5.0?
  • What would be the major points to be changed on software side if we transfer to Quad Plus and still use Android 5.0?

Hi James

differences between two processors are described in EB810

i.MX 6Dual/6Quad and i.6DualPlus/6QuadPlus Applications Processor Comparison

http://cache.nxp.com/files/32bit/doc/eng_bulletin/EB810.pdf

And transfer old software may be indeed big wok, as video path is completely

different due to new modules PRE/PRG, just for reference is attached Linux

Manual, one can look at Chapter 6 Image Processing Unit (IPU) Drivers.

Best regards

Hi,

Do We need to take care anything electrically before mounting the iMX6 Quad Plus processor in already designed iMX6 Quad PCB?

Thanks,

Tami
