You should have at least:
- 1 UP Squared 6000 board. Available on up-shop.
- 1 Power Supply 12V/6A DC. This is designated for UP Squared 6000, check up-shop.
- 1 USB mass-storage device. At least 4GB for fixedfunction image and 15GB for HMI image.
In order to connect to the debug console UART, you also need:
- 10-pin wafer box connector cable. Available from the up-shop.
- 3.3V Serial cable (for example, an FTDI cable).
- Depending on the type of serial cable: jumper wires.
You may also need a:
- Intel AX210 wifi module, for wireless/bluetooth connectivity.
- Lilliput touchscreen, required if using the HMI image.
- Download the Intel 64-bit (amd64) HMI or
fixedfunction image and
- Flash the image to a USB mass-storage device (e.g.
/dev/sda) using command:
sudo bmaptool copy path/to/image.img.gz /dev/sda
- Plug the USB mass-storage device in the board.
- Plug in the UART 10-pin header cable on the USB 2.0 / UART wafer. Connect to the serial console running any terminal emulator like:
picocom /dev/ttyUSB0 -b 115200
- Plug in the power supply and wait for it to boot.
The 10-pin header adapter from the up-shop brings three UART connectors out of the USB 2.0 / UART wafer.
Check the official board documentation for serial console access.
|CN7 pin||Description||Group||Adapter connector|
|1||USB_VCC||USB 1||USB 2.0 plug|
|5||USB_VCC||USB 1||USB 2.0 plug|
|9||UART0_RXD||UART0||3-pin: pin 2 (red)|
|10||UART0_TXD||3-pin: pin 1 (white, with ▲ mark)|
|4, 8||GND||3-pin: pin 3 (black)|
Serial console BIOS configuration
In order to get the login prompt on the serial console, the following steps needs to be configured:
- Enter BIOS setup pressing
- Go to tab
- Disable option
Windows UART Sub Device Report.
Optionally, the Intel AX210 wifi module can be used for wireless/bluetooth connectivity. This can be attached to the M.2 2230 E-KEY slot on the board as detailed on the following picture:
If you have a Lilliput touchscreen, note that because it combines HDMI video and USB for the touchscreen into one connector, it needs to be used with the special cable provided:
- Connect the two-tailed HDMI connector to the UP Board (through the type A to type D adaptor).
- Connect the USB lead to the UP Board.
- Connect the one-tailed HDMI connector to the Lilliput.
- Power up the Lilliput.
