Overview

The i.MX 8M Mini EVK provides a platform for comprehensive evaluation of the i.MX 8M Mini and i.MX 8M Mini Lite applications processors. It delivers high performance with power efficiency, multimedia interfaces, and Wi-Fi/BT for connectivity out-of-the box.

The two-board solution consists of a compact 2”x2”compute module and a larger base board that brings out the broad connectivity that is needed for product evaluation. The compute module is a proven, compact reference to accelerate your own design.

Follow the steps below for host setup. Once finished, you can go on to the next section Build Yocto Image from Scratch to compile image from source.

  1. i.MX8M Mini: Setup Yocto Build Environment
  2. i.MX8M Mini: Build and Install SDK


Build Yocto Image from Scratch

These guides will guide you through the creation and compile of the imx8mmevk image from scratch

Note Before starting any of these guides please setup the environment from previous section

Core Image Minimal: A small image that only allows a device to boot
Core Image Sato: A image with Sato, a mobile environment and visual style for mobile devices. The image supports X11 with a Sato theme and uses Pimlico applications. It contains a terminal, an editor and a file manager
Fsl Image Validation IMX: Builds an i.MX image with a GUI without any QT content.
Fsl Image Qt5 Validation IMX: Builds an opensource Qt5 image. These images are only supported for i.MX SoC with hardware graphics. They are not supported on the i.MX 6UltraLite, i.MX 6UltraLiteLite, and i.MX 7Dual.
