I received an evaluation board a week ago and I am trying to get it up and running. I am a beginner with no software development experience.


I am using a Windows machine as host. I installed PuTTY and I am able to see the board boot from the SD card that comes with the board.


The board is booting fine:


Booting Linux on physical CPU 0x0

Linux version 3.10.53-1.1.0_ga+g496fbe0 (jenkins@scmbl1) (gcc version 4.8.2 (GCC) ) #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jan 5 15:55:14 CST 2015

CPU: ARMv7 Processor [412fc09a] revision 10 (ARMv7), cr=10c53c7d

CPU: PIPT / VIPT nonaliasing data cache, VIPT aliasing instruction cache

Machine: Freescale i.MX6 SoloX (Device Tree), model: Freescale i.MX6 SoloX SDB Board


My toolchain is Eclipse IDE with CDT and GNU ARM Eclipse Plug-ins.

The code I am trying to run is below:




Name        : main.c

Description : Hello World in C




#include <stdio.h>




* Print a greeting message on standard output and exit.

  * On embedded platforms this might require semi-hosting or similar.

  * For example, for toolchains derived from GNU Tools for Embedded,

* to enable semi-hosting, the following was added to the linker:

* * --specs=rdimon.specs -Wl,--start-group -lgcc -lc -lc -lm -lrdimon -Wl,--end-group


* Adjust it for other toolchains.







  printf("Hello ARM World!" "\n");

  return 0;



The code builds with no problem as seen in the build console:

How do I download to the board?
