Introduction Currently there is not an easy procedure to build Qt 5.1 with hardware acceleration support for Freescale i.MX6 platform. This document describes the steps necessary to download all the prerequisite oftware, build Qt 5.1 code and examples, and verify the hardware acceleration support status. Required Software 1.      To start building, we need some development tools. This build is verified on LTIB (L3.0.35_4.0.0_130424_source.tar.gz downloaded from FreeScale website) and cross-compiled on a Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit PC. Verify that gpu-viv-bin-mx6q option is enabled in the LTIB configuration.                    $ mkdir -p ~/BSP                    $ cd ~/BSP                    $ tar -xzvf L3.0.35_4.0.0_130424_source.tar.gz   2.      Download Qt 5.1.1 source code from the Qt-project website. Create a build directory and extract the content in it.                    $ mkdir -p ~/Qt5                    $ cd ~/Qt5                    $ tar -xJvf qtbase-opensource-src-5.1.1.tar.xz Build procedure: 1.      Enter the Qt5 build directory and create a configuration script as follows:                   $ cd ~/Qt5/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.1.1/qtbase                   $ vi config.imx6                   #!/bin/sh                   ./configure -opensource -confirm-license -make libs -device imx6 \                   -device-option CROSS_COMPILE=\                   /opt/freescale/usr/local/gcc-4.6.2-glibc-2.13-linaro-multilib-2011.12/fsl-linaro-toolchain/bin/arm-fsl-linux-gnueabi- \                  -no-pch -no-opengl -no-icu                  -no-c++11 \                  -opengl es2 \                  -eglfs \                  -compile-examples \   2.      Edit the device configuration to specify the root file system of the BSP. Make sure the config file contains lines that match with what lists below                    $ cd ~/Qt5/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.1.1/qtbase/mkspecs/devices/linux-imx6-g++                    $ vi qmake.conf                    ROOTFS=/home/trainee/BSP/L3.0.35_4.0.0_130424_source/ltib/rootfs                    QMAKE_INCDIR           += $$ROOTFS/usr/include                    QMAKE_LIBDIR           += $$ROOTFS/usr/lib                    QMAKE_LFLAGS           += -Wl,-rpath-link,$$ROOTFS/usr/lib   3.      Run the configuration script and make sure that Qt5 has openGL ES 2.0 support when it is complete. Note that you must run 'make confclean' to remove the previous configuration when any hanges are made to the script.                 $ ./config.imx6                           This is the Qt Open Source Edition.                           You are licensed to use this software under the terms of  the Lesser GNU General Public License (LGPL) versions 2.1.                           You have already accepted the terms of the  license.                           Creating qmake...                            ….                            ….                            Support enabled for:                            Accessibility  .......... yes                            ….                            OpenGL .................. yes (OpenGL ES 2.x)                             ….                            Qt is now configured for building. Just run 'make'.             Once everything is built, you must run 'make install'.             Qt will be installed into             /home/trainee/BSP/L3.0.35_4.0.0_130424_source/ltib/rootfs/usr/local/Qt5.1.1             Prior to reconfiguration, make sure you remove any leftovers from             the previous build.   4.      Do a build. Note that all the libraries are copied to the appropriate directories in the root file system.                    $ make all -j8                    $INSTALL_ROOT=/home/trainee/BSP/L3.0.35_4.0.0_130424_source/ltib/rootfs/ sudo                    make install        5.      Build the examples                $ cd examples                $ make   6.      Copy an example (hellogl_es2) used to demonstrate openGL ES to the root file system.                $ sudo cp opengl/hellogl_es2/hellogl_es2                /home/trainee/BSP/L3.0.35_4.0.0_130424_source/ltib/rootfs/    Verify h/w acceleration support: 1.      Boot the board and verify that the galcore module is installed               $ cat /proc/devices | grep galcore               $ ls /dev/galcore   2.      Set up the required Qt environment               $ export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/local/Qt-5.1.1/plugins/        3.      Run the example. You shall see a rotating Qt logo on the display.               $ cd /               $ ./hellogl_es       4.      Run top command and it shows the application running with a very low (0 – 1 %) cpu usage.               $ top                 PID PPID USER     STAT   VSZ %VSZ CPU       %CPU COMMAND                                      2820 2809  root         S         188m 21.5   0              0.7       ./hellogl_es2 About Adeneo Embedded Adeneo Embedded provides system integration, design, support and training services to companies seeking world-class expertise in embedded solutions using high-performance architectures.

LTC3676 datasheet Features Quad I 2 C Adjustable High Efficiency Step Down DC/DC Converters: 2.5A, 2.5A, 1.5A, 1.5A Three 300mA LDO Regulators (Two Adjustable) DDR Power Solution with V TT and VTTR Reference Pushbutton ON/OFF Control with System Reset Independent Enable Pin-Strap or I 2 C Sequencing Programmable Autonomous Power-Down Control Dynamic Voltage Scaling Power Good and Reset Functions Selectable 2.25MHz or 1.12MHz Switching Frequency Always Alive 25mA LDO Regulator 12μA Standby Current Low Profile 40-Lead 6mm × 6mm × 0.75mm QFN Package Linux Driver Instructions (Please note that this is a Beta Release Version) The driver is good reference code to illustrate how to communicate with LTC3676 via I2C. The .zip file also includes a test app and readme.txt with instructions. It has been tested with i.MX6Q NovPek board from NovTech. It is configured for the LTC3676-1 but also support LTC3676 by simply changing a flag and there are comments about the minor difference between the -1 and non-1 for the driver. Here is the description and instructions also contained in the included readme file: This package contains the linux driver for LTC3676 and LTC3676-1. It has been tested with i.MX6Q. It also includes a test app. It is configured for the LTC3676-1 but there are internal comments about the minor difference between the -1 and non-1 for the driver. Here are general instructions on how to include this new driver in the Linux build using ltib. You can also see that it is tested with linux-3.0.35 that Freescale has used for i.MX6. 1) cd ltib/rpm/BUILD/linux-3.0.35 (Where your Ltib folder is stored). 2) extract zip file: tar -zxpf LTC3676_Driver.tar.gz 3) Run LTIB configure: ./ltib -c 4) Select "Configure the kernel", exit, and yes to save. 5) When Kernel Menu appears, select "Device Drivers". 6) Select "Voltage and Current Regulator Support". 7) Select "Linear LTC3676 Regulator Driver" to compile into kernel. Don't build as a module. 😎 Exit and Save. 9) Ltib should build the kernel with the driver. Application Instructions: This builds in the ltc3676_1_test application to allow a user to check the regulators and dynamically change the voltage on the ARM core rail. The voltage movement is small to not push the i.MX6 outside normal operation. This test application does not have any overvoltage error checking for safety. It also does not change the processor frequency. It just tests the basic LTC3676 driver operation. 1) cd ltib (Where your Ltib folder is stored). 2) Run "./ltib -m prep -p imx-test" 3) Move the ltc3676_test folder extracted from this tar file: "mv rpm/BUILD/linux-3.0.35/ltc3676_test rpm/BUILD/imx-test-12.09.01/test/." 4) Run "./ltib -m scbuild -p imx-test" 5) Run "./ltib" 6) Burn SD Card, "./mk_mx6_sd -ukr /dev/sdb", /dev/sdb is the name of the SD card. 7) Safely Remove SD Card and install in NOVPEK board. 😎 Power and boot to Linux. 9) Run "cd /unit_test " 10) Run Application, ./ltc3676_1_test i.MX6 Board from NovTech (Click on this link) Schematics for LTC3676-1 Linear Technology Power Plug in Board available. Contact your local Linear Technology sales office Gerard Velcelean (gvelcelean@linear.com) or Steve Knoth (sknoth@linear.com) if you have any questions.

Measuring only 70mm by 55mm, the MYS-6ULX designed by MYIR is a high-performance low-cost Single Board Computer (SBC) specially designed for industry and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. It is based on NXP i.MX 6UL/6ULL processor family which features the most efficient ARM Cortex-A7 core and can operate at speeds up to 528 MHz. The MYS-6ULX Single Board Computer supports Yocto and Debian OS. Here we take Debian OS as an example.   The programming procedure:      Prepare an SD card. Open the image file of OS “mys6ull-debian8.rootfs.sdcard” with Win32Disk Imager, then program it into the SD card.      Power on the MYS-6ULX board. Insert the SD card to the slot, set the dip switch to 0101. Connect the serial port cable and USB power cable to the board, then power on the board.      L ogin in the system. The user name is root and the pass word is 123456. View the system information with command cat/etc/issue, the system version is Debian8 as shown below, which means the OS has been programmed into the SD card successfully. The develop environment I work on PC is Ubuntu VMS, ARMGCC compiler is needed to be installed in the Ubuntu VMS. We can check if the compiler is available with instruction arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc–v. Ubuntu16 comes with a 5.4 version compiler as below: We need to install a compiler if the system doesn’t come with one. The toolkit MYIR provided contains that compiler. Open the folder 03-Tools\Toolchain, there is a package named “gcc-linaro-4.9-2014.11-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.xz”. Copy this package into a folder of VMS and use commands below to extract it. xz -dgcc-linaro-4.9-2014.11-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.xz tar -xfgcc-linaro-4.9-2014.11-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar We would have a file named gcc-linaro-4.9-2014.11-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf after unpacking, then use instruction below to set the compiler: export PATH= $PATH:$DEV_ROOT/\gcc-linaro-4.9-2014.11-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf/bin exportCROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihfexport ARCH=arm View the compiler version again, the information printed on the screen should be: We can see the compiler version is 4.9.3. Then all the settings of develop environment has been completed.

e-con Systems with over 15 years of experience in pioneering different cameras for embedded devices have been working towards integrating MIPI CSI-2 cameras to the i.MX 8M EVK from NXP. Our current pursuit to interface the   e-CAM130_MI1335_MOD   to the   MCIMX8M-EVK   was successful and we have evaluated the following resolutions and framerates. S. No Resolution Framerate (per second) 1 640×480 120 2 1280×720 80 3 1920×1080 80 4 3840×2160 30 5 4192×3120 13* Table 1 : Resolutions and framerates supported * – under development. Expected to go higher. The MCIMX8M-EVK is the official evaluation kit for the i.MX 8M series application processors from NXP. It has a quad core ARM Cortex A53 running at 1.5 GHz and an ARM Cortex M4 core for low power operations and 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The MCIMX8M-EVK supports 2 MIPI CSI2 cameras in 4 lane configuration simultaneously. It also has other IO options such as a DSI display interface, HDMI 2.0, USB 3.0, MicroSD, Ethernet and Audio out. This configuration is ideal for designing low power devices such as OTT STBs, AV receivers, handheld devices, machine visual inspection systems and other general-purpose HMI solutions. The e-CAM130_MI1335_MOD uses the 1/3.2”   AR1335   rolling shutter sensor from ON Semiconductor. This sensor supports a maximum resolution of 13MP with an active pixel array of 4208×3120. We have also added additional features such as 3A (Auto Exposure, Auto Focus, Auto White Balance) and HDR imaging using a dedicated onboard ISP. The output format of the camera is UYVY which removes the need for bayer demosaic processing on the host processor. This camera is ideal for developing high resolution imaging with HDR for close range machine visual inspection. You can soon expect our launch for various camera products for the i.MX 8M platform. Please check out our   product page   for updates.
