    The WLAN module on PicoCore can also be used as access point.

    It's important to know, that the interface mlan0 is used for station mode and the interface uap0 is used for softAP mode.

    By default, only mlan0 is started during boot.

    To start uap0 during boot you have to set the paramter "driver_mode" of module "mwifiex" to th value 3.

    Best way to do this, is to set the variable "extra" in u-boot like following:


    Code
    1. setenv extra mwifiex.driver_mode=0x03

    The result is, that the interface mlan0 and the interface uap0 are started during boot.

    Under the following link, documentation for PicoCoreM6SX is ready for download:

    PicoCoreMX6SX Documentation


    You can find:

    • PicoCoreMX7ULP hardware documentation
    • PicoCoreMX7ULP base board hardware documentation
    • PicoCoreMX6SX base board design files
    • PicoCoreMX6SX base board schematic
    • Several documents regarding Linux
    • Use or FreeRTOS on Cortex-M4

    PicoCoreMX6SX is pin compatible to PicoCoreMX6UL and shares the same base board.

    Main Advantage of PicoCoreCoreMX6SX over PicCoreMX6UL:


    PicoCoreMX6SX PicoCoreMX6UL
    2x GBit LAN 2x 100MBit LAN
    Cortex-A9+Cortex-M4 Cortex-A7

    There is a open source webcam driver for Windows Embedded. The driver was originally provided on CodePlex.

    The driver supports webcams which use the USB UVC class. SO other not tested webcams with support for UVC should also work.

    We have integrated this driver in our binary BSP. You can add the driver to your image by selecting it in the catalog.


    We have tested the driver with following webcams:

    • Logitech C270
    • Logitech C920

    To test the camera you can use the tool DShowCamTest.exe.

    Some customers asking, for the well known standard shell form Compact 7.
    The answer is, that this is also a removed functionality of Compact 2013.
    The new MinShell only shows a bitmap and has a "Start" button on the top left of the window.
    F&S has ported the old control panel to Compact 2013 and added a menu entry to start this under the "Start" button.
    Using this you have access to "F&S Board Config" can change date/time, play some system sounds and much more.

    The commands "backlight off" and "backlight on" are not implemented in the current version.
    Please take a look at the roadmap for our iMX6 kernel.
    We have also checked command "display power on" and "display power off". Both commands are not working correctly.
    Please take a look at the roadmap for our iMX6 kernel too.


    Our apologies about this problems.

    One or two Ethernet ports is a soldering Option.
    Means you have to order with one or two boards.
    It's not possible to simply set a regsitry value to switch second port on.
    In case of 2nd LAN port you loose the Audio feature.

    Please do the following:


    Code
    1. reg open \comm\ETHNETA1\Parms\TCPIP
    2. reg enum
    3. reg set value EnableDHCP dword 0
    4. reg set val IpAddress string 192.168.1.1
    5. reg set val Subnetmask string 255.255.255.0
    6. reg save


    Hope this helps.

    You can get the size of the image with the tool Microsoft tool viewbin.exe
    The result for XIPVYB_C7E_140414.bin is:


    ViewBin... XIPVYB_C7E_140414.binImage Start = 0x80100000, length = 0x0332DB2CStart address = 0x801098C0Checking record #37 for potential TOC (ROMOFFSET = 0x00000000)Found pTOC = 0x8037598cROMOFFSET = 0x00000000Checking record #37 for potential TOC (ROMOFFSET = 0xFCF4B660)Checking record #386 for potential TOC (ROMOFFSET = 0xFE902C30)Checking record #568 for potential TOC (ROMOFFSET = 0x00000000)Found pTOC = 0x8342a32cROMOFFSET = 0x00000000Done.


    But we don''t recommend using exactly this values. In case a Microsoft QFE will addd additional code and therfore the size of the Image will increase you can save it on your board.
