How To Configure

Use one of the terminal application depending on the operating system of the host machine:

Powering ON

Connect the 12V power supply plug to the power connector (J17) of the i.MX 8M Plus OSM Based PICO ITX SBC as shown below and switch ON the power supply.
Once power is applied to the SBC, the power LEDs in the i.MX 8M Plus OSM Based PICO ITX SBC will glow as shown in the below image.

5.1 5. Powering ON


  • Do not try to connect any other Power Supply other than supplied along with i.MX 8M Plus OSM Based Pico ITX SBC.
  • Contact iWave, if power LEDs are not glowing.

Boot screen

User must go through “Software User Guide” and get familiar with software section of iW-RainboW-G40S-i.MX 8M Plus OSM Based PICO ITX SBC.

Operating System Support
