Hello

 

Please tell me about the following.

 

[What we want to achieve]
1. We want to put AndroidAutomotive on the development board ( we want to use it for demo development )
Looking at the documents of [Documentation]-[AndroidAUTO] in the following site, I thought that the AndroidAutomotive BSP is provided for i.MX 8. Is my understanding correct ?
https://www.nxp.com/support/developer-resources/evaluation-and-development-boards/i.mx-evaluation-and-development-boards/i.mx-software-and-development-tool:IMX-SW
*We don't ask for the support such as modifications for the BSP that is currently provided.

2.
We want to attach the MFi authentication chip(MFI337S3959) to the development board and activate the CarPlay function.
* We think the software development to make the CarPlay function work is also needed.But we don't ask for the support for the software development.

 

【Questions】
1. Is there an AndroidAutomotive BSP available for "i.MX 8QuadMax MEK Board" ?

2. Is it possible to attach the MFi authentication chip(MFI337S3959) to "i.MX 8QuadMax MEK Board" without hardware modifications ?
We have checked the i.mx8_8X-Beta Program External Q218.pptx you provided, but we are still not clear about it.

Also, looking at the MCIMX8M-EVK-DESIGNFILES(SPF-29615_B5.pdf P11), it looks like the MFi authentication chip(MFI337S3959) can be attached like in "iMX6 SABRE AI Board". Is it possible to mount it in the same way with MEK board?
