NXP MIMXRT1064-EVK

Overview

The i.MX RT1064 EVK is a 4-layer through-hole USB-powered PCB. At its heart lies the i.MX RT1064 crossover MCU, featuring NXP’s advanced implementation of the Arm Cortex-M7 core. This core operates at speeds up to 600 MHz to provide high CPU performance and excellent real-time response.

Schematics

CMSIS-Drivers

This board support pack contains a CMSIS-Driver for the VIO interface. This is a virtual I/O abstraction for peripherals that are typically used in example projects. The Blinky example uses this interface to create a blinking light with the USER LED mounted on the board that can be controlled by the USER BUTTON (SW8).

Flashing instructions for Windows users

  1. While holding down the boards reset button, connect the boards USB debug port to the computer. It should enumerate and mount as MAINTENANCE.
  2. Drag-and-drop the firmware file onto the mounted drive.
  3. Wait for the file copy operation to complete.
  4. Power cycle the board. It will now enumerate and mount as DAPLINK or the name of the board.

Flashing instructions for Linux users

  1. While holding down the boards reset button, connect the boards USB debug port to the computer. It should enumerate as MAINTENANCE.
  2. In a terminal execute
    cp <path to firmware file> <MAINTENANCE> && sync
    Note: make sure to change MAINTENANCE to the name of the mount point of the drive on your system.
  3. Power cycle the board. It will now enumerate and mount as DAPLINK or the name of the board.

Flashing instructions for MAC users

  1. While holding down the boards reset button, connect the boards USB debug port to the computer. It should enumerate as MAINTENANCE.
  2. In a terminal execute
    sudo mount -u -w -o sync /Volumes/MAINTENANCE ; cp -X <path to firmware file> /Volumes/MAINTENANCE/
    Note: If your drive does not mount as MAINTENANCE make sure to change this to match the name of the mounted disk attached to your system.
  3. Wait for the file copy operation to complete.
  4. Power cycle the board. It will now enumerate and mount as DAPLINK or the name of the board.
