Supported hardware

Supported boards:

  • TechNexion PICO-PI-IMX7-IG development kit, which is made up of a PICO-PI-GL baseboard and a PICO-IMX7D-10-R10-E08-9377 System-on-Module (SoM). Referred to as the PICO-PI with IMX7D. You may also need one micro-USB cable, and one USB-C cable.

  • NXP i.MX 8M Mini LPDDR4 Evaluation Kit. Referred to as the NXP 8M Mini EVK. This kit comes with power supply, micro-USB cable and USB-C cable, but you will need a micro-SD card (at least 4GB).

    This platform is still in development and is only partially supported at the moment. The boot partitioning has not been finished and Wi-Fi communication is not working yet.

  • NXP Warp7. You also need two micro-USB cables.

  • Raspberry Pi 3 models B or B+, with:

    • A micro-SD card (at least 4GB).

    • An C232HD-DDHSP-0 cable to connect the GPIO to a PC's USB (for debugging).

    • If you want to use MBL CLI: a USB to network adaptor and an RJ45 network cable (to convert from RPi3 USB host port to network). We've tested with the TP-Link UE300.

      An optional second USB network adaptor if you want to convert back to USB (to connect to your PC over USB rather than network).

    Warning: The Raspberry Pi 3 is suitable for development only. Do not use it for production.
