i.MX 8MQuad Evaluation Kit with SE050ARD

This document will walk a developer through the steps of installing a FoundriesFactory image with the SE050 hardware enabled onto the NXP imx8mqevk that is connected to the NXP OM-SE050ARD development platform.

An image created in the factory with the SE050 enabled will not boot on boards without the SE050 properly attached.

Attaching the SE050

Connect the OM-SE050ARD Arduino Compatible Development Kit to the imx8mqevk as follows:

Using four male to male jumper wires (Arduino Compatible Pin size) connect the two boards.

Connect the signals as follows:

Signal imx8mqevk OM-SE050ARD
SCL J801 pin 1 J2 pin 10
SDA J801 pin 3 J2 pin 9
VDD_3V3 J801 pin 5 J8 pin 5
GND J801 pin 2 J2 pin 7

Be sure that the jumpers on the SE050 evaluation board are set as follows:
