Freescale i.MX 6 TV Dongle Schematics, PCB Layout, and Application Notes

We already had the source code for Freescale i.MX6 HDMI TV dongle, and some work has been done on the Linux front by imx6-dongle community to make Ubuntu work on Hi802 and GK802 mini PCs. Today, I’ve just found out Freescale has also released the hardware files and some application notes for their HDMI TV dongle reference platform (MX6x_HDMI_DONGLE).

There are 2 files for download:

Let’s have a look at the hardware design files:

  • – Schematics in PDF and DSN (OrCAD) format, gerber files, BoM and manufacturing files for the Wi-Fi module.
  • bom_hdmi_dongle_revb2_20130116_1500.xls – Bill of materials for i.MX 6 HDMI dongle
  • pcb_hdmi_dongle-revb2-20130116_1700.rar – PCB layout (.brd) and gerber files
  • sch_hdmi_dongle_revb2_20130116_1500.rar – Schematics for i.MX6 mini PC in PDF and DSN formats.

We also have three application notes:

  • AN4397  Common Hardware Design for i.MX 6Dual6Quad and i.MX 6Solo6DualLite.pdf – Giving  hardware design recommendations for DRAM, SATA, I2C, MIPI, Display, etc..
  • IMX6DQ6SDLHDG.pdf – Hardware Development Guide for i.MX 6Quad, 6Dual, 6DualLite,
    6Solo Families of Applications Processors
  • AN4579.pdf – i.MX 6 Series Thermal Management Guidelines

That looks pretty good, and that means that the first open source hardware mini PC / HDMI stick I’ve ever seen.
