uClinux BSP 2.5.4 for i.MX RT1170

May 26, 2023

The new release targets the NXP i.MX RT1170 EVK board and brings in the following advanced capabilities:

  • Boot from QSPI Flash, UBI Flash partitioning and UBIFS Flash file systems (with wear-leveling — extending the lifespan of the devices)
  • CAN device driver and CANsocket API (for automotive, industrial and robotics applications).

Here is the link to the Documentation page with over 35 application notes describing how to use the BSP in practical embedded applications. The topics covered include:

  • Enabling password-protected login
  • Accessing I2C Devices in Linux
  • Building C++ applications
  • Running MicroPython in Linux.

In the spirit of open source, we are making the Linux kernel source of the new BSP available via our public GitHub repositories.

If you prefer a packaged and supported solution, we invite you to buy this BSP online from our website.
