Yocto 1.5.1 Dora
- Toolchain: based on gcc 4.8.1, binutils 2.23, name of the chain for cross-compiling: arm-poky-linux-gnueabi (hardfloat)
- Bootloader: U-Boot 2013.04 mainline
- Kernel: 3.0.35, Freescale revision 4.1.0+
- Qt: 4.8.5 with QWS (if you are interested in Qt5, please use Debian or build it yourself using our Yocto layer)
The root file system in our emBSP is build using Yocto/OpenEmbedded (Yocto version 1.5.1). The layers for Yocto/OpenEmbedded are available on request, but please understand that we can not support you for free if you have problems with this powerful but complicated build system. If you are new to linux the first steps will be much easier with emLinux.

emBSP v2014-04-17 for DIMM-MX6
- built with Yocto version 1.5.1 (Dora)
- this leads to many SW updates as seen above amongst others. Also the Heartbleed bug in OpenSSL is fixed.
- hardfloat ABI is now used, this is incompatible with previous softfloat code
- support for DIMM-MX6 rev4 and rev5 boards
emBSP v2013-06-26 for DIMM-MX6
introduce support for DIMM-MX6-Solo and DIMM-MX6-DualLite
the same BSP including the kernel supports all variants of DIMM-MX6 (Solo, DualLite, Dual and Quad)
emBSP v2013-05-24 for DIMM-MX6
Updated kernel and root file system to Freescale BSP release 4.0.0
Analog camera support added. Camera drivers are now compiled as modules. For more information read the gstreamer info. Analog camera input is only available on Lothron baseboard
DVI output available on Lothron baseboard
GPU clock frequency limit removed. Use Cadun base board with this release, if you encounter power supply issues.
emBSP v2013-03-22a for DIMM-MX6
Fixed problem with toolchain in emBSP
emBSP v2013-03-22 for DIMM-MX6
Camera: VM009 camera module (mt9m131 sensor) now supported. Also USB cameras are supported.
UARTs: all five UARTs are now available
RootFS: SW update of many components of the RootFS (based on Yocto version 1.3 (danny) and Freescale BSP version 1.1.1)
emBSP v2013-01-17 for DIMM-MX6
RootFS: fixed problem with umountfs script
emBSP v2013-01-14 for DIMM-MX6
Added support for following peripherals: USB Device, HDMI (video only), CAN, Watchdog, Audio, SPI, SATA. For further information and hints about using the peripherals please have a look at the list above
support of DIMM-MX6 hardware revision 2. Please note that hardware revision 1 is no longer supported. If you have a revision 1 board, we will exchange it for you.
bug fixes and improvements
emBSP v2012-11-16 for DIMM-MX6
The Freescale i.MX6 SoC can demand a lot of power from the power supply. Therefore emtrion designed a new base board Cadun which can handle the demands of our DIMM-MX6. If you already purchased a Verno with DIMM-MX6 and your application needs more power than Verno can deliver, you can contact us to exchange it with a Cadun. Because of mentioned power supply issues the Lothron base board should only be used, if you want to test a device, which can not be connected to Cadun. If you use Lothron please follow this guide. DIMM-MX6-Solo can be used without limitations on Lothron.
Hardware Revision 1
you must connect the USB device port to a USB Host port (e.g. of your Host PC) to be able to use the USB Host port(s) of the developer kit
