ConfigID[edit | edit source]

This article describes how the ConfigID is implemented in the products supported by the DESK-MX6-L Linux Kit.

AXEL Lite[edit | edit source]

As AXEL Lite is a system-on-module (SOM), the typical mechanism described here is used.

Moreover, a system is composed of the combination of a SOM and a carrier board. In this case, two ConfigIDs are used to identify the actual board configuration like it was a SOM+carrier board system.

For the sake of simplicity, the first ConfigID is denoted as SOM ConfigID, while the second one is denoted as CB ConfigID:

SOM ConfigID#: 00000003
SOM UniqueID#: df646299:0b0579d4
CB ConfigID#: 00000012
CB UniqueID#: da000011:0dd2e72d
Board: MX6Q-AxelLite on SBCX

Generally speaking:

  • SOM ConfigID is used to identify the configuration of the basic features of the SOM
  • CB ConfigID is used to identify the peripherals and the I/O interfaces.


NXP guarantees that processors UIDs (a.k.a. SOM UniqueID# on DESK-MX6-L) to be unique over the whole MX6 family
