Board Support Package for Cyclone V SoC Qseven SOM

iW-RainboW-G17M-Q7 is Cyclone V SoC based R2.0 Qseven compatible SOM module. The SOM includes DDR3 memory, flash memory, and common interface controllers with Linux board support package (BSP) support.

The Cyclone V SoC is integrated with an ARM-based hard processor system (HPS) and FPGA fabric. The HPS consists of processor, peripherals, and memory interfaces. The FPGA and HPS are interconnected with a high-bandwidth backbone.

Linux BSP support for Cyclone V SoC SOM

The Linux BSP software package for iW-RainboW-G17M-Q7 is based on Yocto project. It comprises of following two packages:

  • The source code package, including the Linux kernel source code, the U-BOOT source code as well as the source code required to rebuild the root file system
  • The tool chain (GCC-4.7) is also included in source code form

The initial supported Linux kernel and U-Boot versions are linux-3.10, u-boot-v2013.01.01 respectively. The U-Boot supports below devices:

  • 512MB of DDR3 HPS RAM
  • 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet
  • Console UART
  • QSPI NOR Flash
  • SD memory

The Kernel Supports below devices:

  • QSPI NOR Flash
  • 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet
  • SD Slot
  • USB 2.0 HUB
  • CAN port
  • I2C Ports
  • UART Ports
  • LVDS display ports
