PCIe Switch Functionality on i.MX6 Board

Oct'12

iWave is the first in the world to design and successfully test the PCIe switch functionality in Freescale's i.MX6 CPU. Though the Freescale's Linux BSP release supports only PCIe End Point device for i.MX6 CPU, iWave's core Linux BSP team broke the boundaries and implemented the PCIe switch on Linux BSP. The PCIe switch functionality is successfully tested with different PCIe switch devices like IDT’s 5 port PCIe switch & PLX's 16 port Gen2 PCIe switch on iWave’s RainboW-G15D - i.MX6 Qseven Development platform. Also PLX's PCIe to PCI bridge device is validated with i.MX6 Development platform. This development platform supports on-board Gen2 PCIex1 slot where any PCIe bridge devices can be inserted for validation
