Hello everyone,

I am thinking of buying an Element14 Sabre lite development board.

I am abit fuzzy as to how much of the development board has been set up by Element14 and how much by Freescale itself; are there drivers (or anything else) that is not supported by the sources/images found in the link down below?

Also, are there board characteristics that are enabled in the image files, but which I can not compile in from the sources?

is this link with SDK, linux OS (or android), correct?

http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=i.MX6Q&nodeId=018rH3ZrDRB24A&fpsp=1&tab=Design_Tools_Tab

 

A few comments refering to the link above:

-Is the SDIOWORX non-GPL run-time driver necessary for writing to the SD card?

-LEIMX linux is mostly a busybox executable placed within a rootfs

 

Also

-I don't see any uboot sources. Should I assume I can refer to linaro toolchain and info about that?  http://www.element14.com/community/message/66325#66325/l/linaro-sabre-lite-resources

 

If you have links and discussion on the boarda please refer me to them. Searching the element14 and freescale websites refer me to little technical discussions, and google about the board provides alot of links from a sabre-lite implementation by boundary devices - which I am not certain if it is the same board.

 

Thank you very much for your help!
