From BXELK 2.0.0 on, the boot process is based on the first-stage bootloader (U-Boot SPL)+second-stage bootloader (U-Boot) combination. 200px-Emblem-important.svg.png



BoraX Embedded Linux Kit (BXELK for short) provides all the necessary components required to set up the developing environment for:

  • building the first-stage bootloader:
    • FSBL for BXELK 1.0.1 or older
    • U-boot SPL for BXELK 2.0.0 or newer
  • building the second-stage bootloader (U-Boot)
  • building and running Linux operating system on BoraX system-on-module (SOM)
  • building and debugging applications that will be executed on top of Yocto-based Linux distribution running on the target.

The main kit components are:

  • hardware platform, composed by BoraX SOM and BoraXEVB
  • source code of target software
  • technical documentation (hardware manuals, mechanical drawings, reference schematics, application notes etc.)
