FAQ

Does the Sona-IF513 support VSDB?

Yes, the Sona-IF513 supports Virtual Simultaneous Dual Band (VSDB) operation.

In an AP and STAion (APSTA) kind of application it is necessary to bring up up the access point (AP) in one band before connecting as a STAtion in the other band.

How to activate SDIO on the M2 slot of the i.MX8 LPDDR4 DVK of NXP

After building a default image for the NXP i.MX8 LPDDR4 DVK device tree is such that M2 slot provides PCIe connectivity.
However SDIO device tree is generated and available in the image.
The parameter "fdtfile=" in U-Boot needs to be changed.

Change "fdtfile=imx8mp-evk-revb4.dtb" to "fdtfile=imx8mp-evk-usdhc1-m2.dtb" by:
u-boot=> setenv fdtfile imx8mp-evk-revb4-usdhc1-m2.dtb
u-boot=> saveenv
