Duxford Museum – May 8th and 9th

BCD-Atlantik will be hosting workshops in Duxford near Cambridge to help designers get the best performance from two key embedded module lines.

The first workshop on May 8th is based around the latest DIGI ConnectCore 6UL IoT development kit and YOCTO Operating System – The Industry’s smallest wireless low-power NXP i.MX6UL UltraLite System-on-Module platform. The workshop will be a hands on event intended to assist in developing customised Linux distribution for the NXP i.MX6(UL) based ARM Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A9 Multi Core System on Modules (SoM) and SBCs.

Starting with an overview of the Digi ConnectCore i.MX6UL and i.MX6 embedded product benefits the workshop will cover an introduction to the Yocto Operating System, Digi TrustFence Security Framework Overview, ConnectCore for i.MX6UL SBC Express and Yocto Hands-on Training.

Delegates will learn about the development environment setup and first steps, U-Boot Bootloader, application development using Eclipse or QT Creator, creating a custom Yocto layer and adding a custom application to a project, OS Customization and Device Tree Introduction and Kernel configuration
