TX6UL Evalkit

Linux kernel powered by Ka-Ro electronics

Ka-Ro electronics announces the full integration of the TX CoM family into the Linux 3.16 stable kernel.

Ka-Ro has unified its releases across the Ka-Ro TX CoM range, starting with the TX28, TX48 and TX53 and including its dual- and quad-core flagship TX6 as well as the new TXA5.

Adaptions were performed by the in-house engineering team. Thereby Ka-Ro is capable of providing comprehensive support and customisation services.


Ka-Ro's BSP & Freescale's Yocto Project

The Yocto Project is an open-source collaboration focused on embedded Linux development.

For more information regarding Yocto Project, see the Yocto Project page:


The Freescale Yocto Project Community BSP is a development community outside of Freescale providing support for i.MX boards on the Yocto Project environment. Freescale provides an additional layer called the Freescale BSP Release, known as meta-fsl-bsp-release, to integrate a new Freescale release with the Freescale Yocto Project Community BSP.

Such a Yocto Project built rootfs can be used directly on the TX6 with the Linux kernel provided by Ka-Ro. The latest MfgTool composition provided by Ka-Ro includes a hardware accelerated X11 with Qt4 example on mainline Linux kernel 3.16.


The Universal Boot Loader

Ka-Ro TX modules are always delivered with pre-installed U-Boot firmware.

U-Boot supports several low-level-debugging options and file download via Ethernet or serial X/Y/ZModem. These files can additionally be stored into the permanent flash-memory to be started by command or power-on.

All adaptions were performed by our in-house engineering team. Thereby we are capable of providing comprehensive support and customisation services.
