iWave has now enabled the new Hotspot feature in Android ICS 4.0.4 on iMX6 Qseven board. Internet Sharing is one of the most popular concepts in wireless communication today. A device having Data Pack can share its internet connectivity with other devices, this feature is known as 'Hotspot'. By enabling Hotspot in i.MX6 Q7 evaluation board we can use the board an Access Point. Once the Device is enabled with Hotspot, all other devices (we'll call it as client devices) within the minimum coverage range will get Network SSID in their Available wireless network's list. Once connected, client devices will be provided with the internet access. Android allows tethering only if the device is provided with mobile data pack or through Ethernet. So, the Board is connected to internet using Ethernet. As security is the major consideration in wireless communication, Hotspot feature is provided with following security modes. WPA2-PSK is more secure -                      (i)Open, (ii)WPA-PSK and (iii)WPA2-PSK Implementation of Non Standard Android feature – Simultaneous Wi-Fi Station-Hotspot modes: Basic android architecture does not support simultaneous operation of Station mode and Hotspot. Now iWave is providing support for simultaneous working of Station and Hotspot, which allows sharing the available Wi-Fi connectivity, with its client devices. This feature supports, Device(iWave iMX6 Qseven development board) works as a Wi-Fi Access Point(Standard android feature) Device works as a Wi-Fi Client (Standard android feature) Device works simultaneously as a Wi-Fi AP and a client(Non-standard android feature) A Wi-Fi mobile or tablet connects to Device's Access Point(AP) Device (As a client) connects to a public AP Device bridges the two connections and enables the Wi-Fi mobile to connect to the public AP Board acts as an Access Point by enabling Hotspot feature. Then the board will act as client by switching on Wi-Fi feature and connecting to an Access Point which is connected to internet. Pros and cons: Pros: Internet connectivity sharing is possible. Hotspot is provided with Open, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK security modes. Network range is up to 10m. Device can act as station and as SoftAP simultaneous. Cons: Number of client devices supported is limited to 10. For further information or enquiries please write to mktg@iwavesystems.com or visit www.iwavesystems.com

Freescales i.MX 6 family provides product developers with the computing power of consumer applications for use in the industrial and automotive sector. Rich Industrial Interfaces i.MX 6 processors offer a wide range of interfaces that render these devices suitable for industrial use. These include Gigabit Ethernet, PCI Express and SATA 2 that are integrated into the processor. The two Flex CAN interfaces make i.MX 6 processors specifically suitable for automotive as well as industrial applications. All interfaces provide an I/O voltage of 3.3 V. Accordingly, in most use cases there is no extensive signallevel adjustments are needed for design-in of the processor, thus simplifying peripheral circuitry design.

The BD-SL-i.MX6 formerly SABRE Lite board is a low cost i.MX6 development platform.  One of the best attributes of the board is the significant software support that is available.  This post introduces Qt5.4 from the QT Company.  The video below shows The Qt Company’s enterprise device creation offering, a Qt-optimized pre-built software stack that lets you immediately get started with prototyping on a real device for embedded Linux and Android development.  The demo is running Qt5.4 and the image is available for the BD-SL-i.MX6 as well as our Nitrogen family of products.  Here is a brief video showing some of the capabilities: The video above showed an image created for embedded Linux, and more specifically, built using tools from The Yocto Project and The Freescale Community BSP. Because of this, your products can leverage the packages provided by those projects, and you can use the Yocto build system to integrate your components and tailor your build.

Here is a video that shows the NFC feature integrated into our Android Lollipop 5.0.0 code base. It is running on our Nitrogen6x platform along with the NXP PN7120 development kit. The video shows that a NFC tag, programmed with Boundary's URL, is automatically read and starts the Browser accordingly. In order to read/write data from a NFC data, Android provides a fully documented API. If you seek an existing application to write tags, here are a couple of options: NXP TagWriter app StickyNotes sample code For more information, please visit http://boundarydevices.com/

Inverse Path is proud to announce the USB armory project, an open source hardware design, implementing a flash drive sized computer for security applications. The USB armory is a compact USB powered device that provides a platform for developing and running a variety of applications. The security features of the USB armory System on a Chip (SoC), combined with the openness of the board design, empower developers and users with a fully customizable USB trusted device for open and innovative personal security applications. The USB armory hardware is supported by standard software environments and requires very little customization effort. In fact vanilla Linux kernels and standard distributions run seamlessly on the tiny USB armory board. The capability of emulating arbitrary USB devices in combination with the SoC speed, the security features and the flexible and fully customizable operating environment, makes the USB armory the ideal platform for all kinds of personal security applications. The Inverse Path team, with the help of the open source community, will develop applications that fully explore the potential of the USB armory board. The USB armory will be available for pre-order soon. Delivery of the device before the end of 2014 is planned. Target applications: mass storage device with advanced features such as automatic encryption, virus scanning, host authentication and data self-destruct OpenSSH client and agent for untrusted hosts (kiosk) router for end-to-end VPN tunnelling, Tor password manager with integrated web server electronic wallet (e.g. pocket Bitcoin wallet) authentication token portable penetration testing platform low level USB security testing Key features: Freescale i.MX53 ARM® Cortex™-A8 800Mhz, 512MB DDR3 RAM USB host powered (<500 mA) device with compact form factor (65 x 19 x 6 mm) ARM® TrustZone®, secure boot + storage + RAM microSD card slot 5-pin breakout header with GPIOs and UART customizable LED, including secure mode detection excellent native support (Android, Debian, Ubuntu, FreeBSD) USB device emulation (CDC Ethernet, mass storage, HID, etc.) Open Hardware & Software http://inversepath.com/usbarmory
