The Toradex Developer Website

The Toradex Developer Website is vastly bigger than this Quickstart Guide. Let's have a look at remarkable pages and features.

Hardware Information

You must likely have to learn the specifics about the hardware you are developing your product. You will find datasheets, design resources, revision history and errata in the respective product pages:

If you are responsible for hardware design, start with our Carrier Board Design section, where you will find reference designs, guides, the Pinout Designer Tool, and more:

Software Information

The best starting point is the Software page, where you will have access to the Toradex BSP Layers and Reference Images for Yocto Project. This page is an entry point to all the resources you may need:

  • Embedded Linux support strategy and issue tracker
  • Download links and installation instructions
  • How to access hardware interfaces (GPIO, PWM, I2C, SPI, ADC, CAN, Wi-Fi, BLuetooth, and many more)
  • How to use displays and multimedia
  • How to build and customize the Linux kernel, U-Boot bootloader, and Reference Images for Yocto Project

Search

The developer website is a wiki-styled website. Even with our efforts to keep it well indexed and easy to navigate, sometimes it is easier to run a search after the topic you are looking for. We recommend that you use the search mechanisms, in case you haven't used them yet:

Takeaway

It was great to help you with your first steps of development. As we appreciate your feedback, all pages on our developer center have a feedback button on the right-hand side of the pages - it is a great opportunity for you to let us know how was your Quickstart Guide experience.

We wish you a good development ahead!
