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

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




imx8mqevk i2c pinout



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 4
GND J801 pin 2 J2 pin 7

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

Lastly the connected boards should look like this:

Installing the FoundriesFactory Image

Download the images that have the SE050 enabled from the factory following the instructions in i.MX 8MQuad Evaluation Kit.


A reference on the needed changes to enable the SE050 middleware can be found in Enabling SE050.
