Colibri Design and Migration Guide:

Our comprehensive design guides provide a wealth of very valuable technical information to help you when designing your own custom carrier board. Important information regarding circuit design and layout helps ensure that you get your design right first time. These guides have been created by our development team who have decades of experience in hardware and software development and are the very same team that design and maintain the Colibri and Apalis product families.

The Migration Guide contains the needed steps to switch between the several Toradex Colibri modules and contains important information for custom carrier board designs.

We also highly recommend to use our Pinout Designer Tool.

Pinout Designer

The Toradex Pinout Designer is a powerful tool for configuring the pin muxing of the Colibri and Apalis modules. The tool allows comparing the interfaces of the different Toradex modules. It's easy to check whether existing carrier boards are compatible with the latest Toradex modules.

Software Downloads

Please see the product documentation for the Colibri module you are using for more information.

The Evaluation Board includes a CAN controller. Toradex provides Software libraries which support the CAN functionality on the Evaluation board. You can find more information about the supported SW features here or contact our support.
