COM Avenger96Board


The AVENGER Board is a 96Boards compliant consumer edition board based on the STM32MP15 series of SoCs. The STM32MP15 series is a highly integrated multi-market applications processor designed to enable secure and portable applications within the Internet of Things. AVENGER board features Dual-core Arm® Cortex®-A7 processors operating at up to 650 MHz, Single core Arm® Cortex® M4 operating up to 209 MHz. In addition, an extensive set of interfaces and connectivity peripherals are included to interface to cameras, touch-screen displays, MMC/SD cards and media processor engine. It also fully supports wireless communication, including WLAN and BLE.

Add camera support to Avenger96 board


OpenSTLinux-4.19-thud Image Changelog

Changelog v2.1.0 to v3.2.0:

  • U-Boot sets ethernet MAC address from 24AA02 EEprom
  • mmc0 now supports switching to 1.8V, UHS-I cards speeded up
  • HW version 1 added to U-Boot device tree, U-Boot now checks HW version of the actual Avenger96 board
  • Flashlayout file generation fixed, no need to change Flashlayout files manually before programming nor+emmc

Changelog v2.0.3 to v2.1.0:

  • HDMI max resolution fixed, it’s 1280x720@60Hz again
  • DRAM size in U-Boot fixed, Linux now sees the whole 1GB
  • UART0 and SPI now supported on low-speed extension connector
  • tpm2-tools and tpm2-tss-engine for openssl added, TPM2.0 chip on Tresor board supported by openssl

Changelog v2.0.2 to v2.0.3:

  • DHCP server running at usb0 network interface

Changelog v2.0.1 to v2.0.2:

  • Supported features in U-Boot: UART, DDR3, QSPI, uSD, eMMC, ethernet
  • PRODUCT_BELOW_2V5 fix in U-Boot
  • Supported features in Linux: UART, uSD, eMMC, USB host, USB OTG, HDMI, GPU, WiFi, Bluetooth, Gbit ethernet
  • STM32CubeProgrammer can initialize NOR, eMMC, uSD
  • Avenger96 can boot from uSD or NOR+eMMC
  • BSP contains a single meta-av96 layer and a readme.txt
  • BSP builds the whole uSD or NOR+eMMC image in a single step, no extra file operations are needed
  • Standard STM32MP157C-DK2 demo runs on Avenger96: WiFi hotspot, video playback with sound, 3D demo

Improvements compared to av96 v2.0.1:

  • SDMMC1,2,3 order fixed, build process simplified
  • WiFi fixed
  • Sound over HDMI, GPU support (there was no GPU in v2.0.1 because of EULA issues during build)
  • Bluetooth support, dummy soundcard added for BT (not tested yet)
  • QSPI, eMMC in U-Boot, PRODUCT_BELOW_2V5 programming added -> Gbit ethernet
  • STM32CubeProgrammer can initialize NOR, eMMC, uSD (a single manual modification of flashlayout files is still needed for NOR+eMMC boot -> needs to be documented yet)

Changelog v1.2 to v2.0.1:

  • Switch to ST v1.0.0 SDK with 4.19 kernel
  • Till now, not all features of v1.2 (based on beta1 release of ST with 4.14 kernel support) are supported with v2.0.1 release
  • NOT working: QSPI in U-Boot and Linux, eMMC in U-Boot, WiFi, …
  • Working interfaces: HDMI, Ethernet, USB, uSD card and Gigabit ethernet (on board with programmed PRODUCT_BELOW_2V5 fuse)

Changelog v1.1 to v1.2:

  • /home/root folder contains simple OpenAMP demo
  • HSLVEN_QSPI fix (from ST) was added to make QSPI boot work again with PRODUCT_BELOW_2V5 programmed

Changelog v1.0 to v1.1:
