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, one USB-C cable and an MHF4 antenna (example).

  • TechNexion PICO-PI with IMX6UL SoM, which is made up of a PICO-PI-FL baseboard and a PICO-IMX6G2-05-R05-E04-9377 System-on-Module (SoM). Referred to as the PICO-PI with IMX6UL. You also need one micro-USB cable, one USB-C cable and an MHF4 antenna, which may be included in your kit (example).

    • Please contact Technexion if you need to order either the PICO-PI-FL board or a kit containing the IMX6UL SoM.
  • 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 8GB for the default build).

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

    • Warning: Warp7 support is deprecated after Mbed Linux OS 0.9, due to availability and export control issues. We are not building or testing this machine in future release, but we will accept external contributions.
  • Raspberry Pi 3 models B or B+, with:

    • A micro-SD card (at least 8GB for the default build).

    • 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).

    Note: We advise you use Raspberry Pi 3 for development only. It is not suitable for production as it does not provide a secure boot flow or security features required for a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).
