Antmicro cites Toradex Apalis iMX6 in interesting tutorial to showcase how to easily get a V4L (Video4Linux) camera setup running on an Apalis iMX6 platform, in this case – the feature-rich Ixora baseboard.
Toradex is now at Proven status in Freescale’s Connect Partner Program. This status has been conferred to Toradex for its expertise in the design and development of System-On-Modules using Freescale i.MX 6 series and Vybrid families of ARM®-based SoCs.
Presenting our latest release - V2.3 Beta 1 Embedded Linux BSPs for Freescale® i.MX 6, NVIDIA® Tegra™ and Freescale® Vybrid based modules.
Notable changes include the upgrade to Angstrom 2014.06 and Yocto/OpenEmbedded daisy.
Earlier this year, Flavio Ansoni and Roberto Linfante were awarded the first prize at the Toradex Embedded Design Challenge, for their project SEASTICK, an Underwater Autonomous Vehicle.
Here is their rendition of the journey thus far.
Toradex – a world leading provider of embedded computing solutions based on ARM® CPUs – today announced that its products, the Colibri T20 and Iris carrier board will be used at a laboratory-work class, of associate professor Nakano, in Keio University's Department of Science and Technology, Japan.
We are pleased to announce the Windows CE 6.0 and Windows Embedded Compact 7 Image V1.3 beta 2 release for our Apalis and Colibri Tegra modules. The significant updates on this release are audio playback support on Apalis T30 & Colibri T30 modules and improved suspend resume support on Colibri T20 module.
Toradex annouced Viola, a new open source concept for ultra-low cost customized single-board computers. Combined with Colibri VF50 CoM, a Freescale® Vybrid™-based Computer-on-Module, a Viola based single-board computer starts at 39€ for 1K units (49€ single unit price) and offers a very interesting set of functions for numerous embedded applications.
It is noteworthy that Bluetooth support can be added to a Windows CE system running on Toradex modules, although this is not included in the standard image..
It is a known fact that the backlight is controlled independently from the display driver. But there is one exception to take note of, if the registry settings for backlight GPIO and display GPIO are identical, a change of the backlight will also change the state of the display driver accordingly. Please refer to Display driver registry settings for details. It is important to note that this is applicable only for Colibri PXA Modules. Another noteworthy feature is that on our carrier boards, PWM<A> is used for adjusting LCD brightness.
In this article we describe step by step how to establish ActiveSync connection on Colibri Module.
One of the simplest setups in order to carry out application debugging, is to connect your Host PC to the Colibri target via a USB cable (ActiveSync) and Ethernet. There are instances, however, wherein the USB client port is unavailable, thereby only allowing for usage of Ethernet for debugging. Read on for an outline on how to setup the host PC and the target to carry out the application debugging.
The article describes how to activate the S/PDIF unit on Colibri T20 Module.
Presenting our latest release - the V2.2 Beta 1 Linux BSPs for Toradex Freescale® Vybrid™ based modules – Colibri VF61 and Colibri VF50.
Great News!! FreeBSD OS now supports Colibri VF50. All credit to FreeBSD OS developer Ruslan Bukin. Porting of FreeBSD on Colibri VF50 will greatly benefit customers exploring to use other operating systems on Colibri VF50. Check out the technical details on FreeBSD link.
We recently released a demo which demonstrates the working of our heterogenous dual-core Colibri VF61. In the demo, the VF61, with its two cores of ARM Cortex-A9, and ARM Cortex-M4, is utilised to run an XY pen-plotter.
