  • F&S i.MX8MM FreeRTOS Release V2020.08 (31.08.2020)

    We have uploaded a new FreeRTOS version for all boards and modules based on the i.MX8MM CPU to our server, i.e. the fsimx8mm architecture: PicoCoreMX8MM. This release is running on all platforms of this architecture at the same time.

    This is a maintenance release. The release consists of the following file:


    This is the main release itself containing all sources, the binary images, the documentation, examples and the toolchain.

    This tar archive is compressed with bzip2. So to see the files, you first have to unpack the archives

    1. tar xvf freertos-fsimx8mm-V2020.08.tar.bz2

    This will create a directory freertos-fsimx8mm-V2020.08 that contains all the files of the release.

    Please read the file doc/FreeRTOS_on_FSiMX8MM_Boards_eng.pdf. It lists the meaning of all files and shows how to install and use everything.
