Fastest way to verify hardware based on MX7

Hello everyone,


What is the fastest way to evaluate custom hardware based on an MX7?


We are developing hardware with a customer. Hardware is our part. Software is their part.


Before giving any hardware to the customer we would like to validate the hardware interfaces, memory etc.

What would be the easiest way of doing this (with no Linux experience)? JTAG is available, boundary scan tools as well. KEIL with support for the MX7D is not available, but can be bought.


Currently, I am thinking of using boundary scan for testing the core system (SoC and Memory). From what I have read, test software is provided by NXP. After using the PINs tool to export the pin muxing, the test software should allow to quickly check the functionality of Ethernet/SPI/UART/I2C/GPIOs etc?


How can our customer get the pin mux setting into their Linux configuration?
We will probably have to create a device tree as well?


Thanks a lot,
