Processor: NXP i.MX8 M
NXP i.MX8M SOM is the new top-class Quad Core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU module by DAVE Embedded Systems, based on the recent NXP i.MX8M application processor. Thanks to this solution, customers have the chance to save time and resources by using a compact solution that permits to reach scalable performances that perfectly fits the application requirements avoiding complexities on the carrier board.
The use of this processor enables extensive system-level differentiation of new applications in many industry fields, where high-performance and extremely compact form factor (67,5 mm x 48 mm) are key factors. Smarter system designs are made possible, following the trends in functionalities and interfaces of the new, state-of-the-art embedded products.
i.MX8M SOM offers great computational power, thanks to the rich set of peripherals, the Scalable ARM Cortex-A53 together with a large set of high-speed I/Os such us dual PCIe and USB3.
i.MX8M SOM is compatible witth i.MX6 SOM solution AXEL LITE. Customers that want to migrate from previous i.MX6 solution to this new will have a ZERO-effort approach with the great advantage of performance. i.MX8 SOM enables designers to create smart products suitable for harsh mechanical and thermal environments, allowing for the development of high computing and reliable solutions.
Thanks to the tight integration between the ARM Core-based processing system and the RTOS integrated on board, designers are able to share the applications through the multicore platform and/or to divide the task on different cores in order to match with specific application requirements.
i.MX8 SOM is designed in order to keep full compatibility with the LITE Line CPU modules, for designs where quality and reliability are important factors PLUS compatibility of AXEL LITE SOM.

MITO 8M SOM processor and memory subsystem are composed by the following components:
On this page you can find a description of the main MITO 8M components (processor info, RAM memory bank, eMMC flash bank, NAND flash bank, memory map and power supply unit).
Yes. The PCB version is copper printed on PCB itself and the serial number is printed on a white label (please see here for further information). Also, a ConfigID is used by software running on the board for the identification of the product model/hardware configuration.
On MITO 8M SOM ConfigID is stored on OTP memory.
On this page you can find the connectors and pinout description of the MITO 8M module.
Implementing correct power-up sequence for iMX8M processors is not a trivial task because several power rails are involved. MITO 8M SOM simplifies this task by embedding all the needed circuitry. Here you can find a simplified block diagram of PSU/voltage monitoring circuitry.
The PSU is composed of two main blocks: 1) power management integrated circuit 2) additional generic power management circuitry that completes PMIC functionalities. It generates the proper power-up sequence required by the SOC processor and surrounding memories and peripherals and synchronizes the powering up of carrier board in order to prevent back power.
The typical power-up sequence is the following:
See this page for further information.
On this page you can find a block diagram of reset scheme and voltage monitoring for MITO 8M SOM.
The boot process begins at Power On Reset (POR) where the hardware reset logic forces the ARM core to begin execution starting from the on-chip boot ROM.
The boot ROM:

JTAG signals are routed to a dedicated connector on the MITO 8M PCB. The connector is placed on the top side of the PCB, on the right side.
Check out this page for further information.
On this page you can find MITO 8M SOM maximum ratings, recommended ratings and power consumption.
The MITO 8M SOM is designed to support the maximum available temperature range declared by the manufacturer. The customer shall define and conduct a reasonable number of tests and verification in order to qualify the DUT capabilities to manage the heat dissipation. Any heatsink, fan etc shall be defined case by case.

Yes. ConfigID is a new feature of DAVE Embedded Systems products. Its main purpose is providing an automatic mechanism for the identification of the product model and configuration. In simple words, model identification means the capability of reading a numerical code, stored in an available device (SOC's OTP , I2C EEPROM, 1-wire memories, protected NOR flash, etc.)
With ConfigID, we aim at completing the hardware configuration information that the software can't normally auto-detect (i.e. RAM chip version,...), implementing a dedicated reliable detect procedure and, when required, overriding the auto-detected hardware configuration information.
This article describes how the ConfigID is implemented in the products supported by the DESK-MX8M-L Linux Kit.
An additional attribute is UniqueID, which is a read-only code which univocally identifies a single product and is used for traceability.
For further information, see this page.
Yes. This configuration is very helpful during the software development (both for kernel and applications). The kernel image is downloaded via TFTP while the root file system is remotely mounted via NFS from the host.
For further information, see this page.
See this page for further information on how to keep the source trees in sync and up to date with DAVE Embedded Systems’ git repositories on DESK-MX8M-L (Software Development Kit per MITO 8M SOM).
See this page for further information on how to build the Boot image on DESK-MX8M-L (Software Development Kit for MITO 8M SOM).
See this page for further information on how to build the U-Boot bootloader with make on DESK-MX8M-L (Software Development Kit for MITO 8M SOM).
See this page for further information on how to build the Linux kernel on DESK-MX8M-L (Software Development Kit for MITO 8M SOM).
As known, in addition to a bootloader and the o.s. kernel, an embedded Linux system needs a root file system to operate. The root file system must contain everything needed to support the Linux system (applications, settings, data, etc.). The root file system is the file system that is contained on the same partition on which the root directory is located.
DESK-MX8M-L provides one (or more) pre-built root file system, that can be used during the evaluation/development/deployment cycle.
Check this page for further information on how to build the Yocto BSP on DESK-MX8M-L.
Check this page for further information on how to create a bootable microSD for the DESK-MX8M-L Release Notes kit by using a simple bash script.
Yes. On this page you can find an example on C code displaying the classic Hello World! message on the target serial console. This example shows how to use the arm cross-compiler using the environment configured for this purpose.
On this page you can find how to program and configure a SOM to boot in standalone mode, without the need of a system microSD card or an NFS server.
For deploying an Embedded System, one of the most important configuration is the Network Interface configuration.
Once the Embedded Device is finally configured for stand-alone bootstrap, the network interface should be configured for reaching the device remotely via network connections like ssh, telnet, ftp, http, etc.
Check this page for further information on how to simply configure the network interface on SystemV (aka SysV) or systemd.
Every network adapter has a Media Access Control address (usually shortened to MAC address). A MAC address is a six-byte identifying number permanently embedded in the firmware of the adapter, and is readable by the network and the operating system of the device on which the adapter is installed.
The address must follow the standards set by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), which sets computer networking standards.
On this page it is described how to use the i.MX8M eFuse for programming and using the MAC address(es) and it applies to the following DAVE i.MX8M family products.
On this page you can find useful information and resources to system designers in order to design carrier boards hosting DAVE Embedded Systems system-on-modules (SOM).
