I have a problem switching my board from i.MX6S to i.MX6DL.

I thought those processors should be the same except for the additional core on i.MX6DL. But there seem to be an important difference which I haven't found yet.

We took one of our Solo boards and replaced the processor with a DualLite in hope it will run out of the box with the old Solo-BSP (except for the additional core). As far as I can see, we haven't changed any additional hardware.

Well, it ran for a short time. But after some Seconds our LVDS-Display starts blinking. And after about 3 to 5 Minutes the device crashes completely and runs into a reboot.


We are running U-Boot, Mainline Linux 4.9 and Debian 9. It crashes not only in linux but also in U-Boot with the same symptoms


Is there something that has to be changed between the processors?

Do you need additional Informations?
