Boot loader options DART-MX6

Postby JRenfrew » Mon Dec 12, 2016 4:32 pm

Can the board be ordered with different factory loaded eMMC options?

We're struggling to find an effective way to load the board in a manufacturing environment. First production runs were done using the Variscite Custom Board with our DART-MX6 boards. However Hirose only rates the connectors for 30 insertions, so every 30 loads we're faced with throwing away Custom Boards. We've also found that once the board has had closer to 60-80 loads, the connectors will break loose from the Custom Board.

The uBoot factory installed to the eMMC of the Dart only seems to support booting from eMMC or SD card.

A few questions:
1. Is it possible to boot from any other sources with the current factory Variscite load?
2. Is it possible to get USB or Network Bootp loading support?
3. Can we send an image to Variscite to be factory loaded before shipping?

The DART-MX6 SOMs currently shipped are loaded with u-boot on eMMC which supports flashing the eMMC via Ethernet.
Please see explanation on how to do it on our wiki: ... to_Krogoth
We can also ship you the SOM's flashed with an image you will send us, this service however, is for extra charge.
Please contact for more info regarding this.
