Getting Started with MaaXBoard

Avnet’s MaaXBoard, which is based on NXP i.MX 8M, is kind of like Raspberry Pi, but with hi-def video and audio processing

MaaXBoard is designed using the NXP i.MX 8M processor based on Arm® Cortex®-A53 and Cortex-M4 cores. It provides 20-channel hi-fidelity audio and 4K video processing for applications that scale from consumer home audio to industrial building automation and mobile computers.

To make setup easy, I’ll be using a keyboard, mouse, and external monitor. You can also connect to the board via TTL and use an SSH client like PuTTY to do the same setup via terminal (steps are outlined here). You can also connect to a MIPI display. Embest sells the recommended display here.”
