The i.MX6 is a platform well-suited for multimedia applications. It features a powerful video processing unit (VPU) and can decode full-hd video without problems.

To showcase the capabilities of the i.MX6 emtrion created a demo using the popular XBMC media center. It plays videos, whether from local storage, sites like Youtube or TV streaming sites. It can be controlled via a comfortable Android app.Thanks to the efforts of the active free software community around the i.MX6, all this works seamlessly with our Debian-based BSP for DIMM-MX6.

LVDS on i.MX6

The i.MX6 series application processors from Freescale are a good choice for industrial and automotive applications requiring high multimedia performance. With the support of up to four simultaneously usable display ports the i.MX6 is also suitable for multi-display solutions or applications for high display resolutions.

Besides the conventional parallel 24-Bit RGB interface, there are also one HDMI, one MIPI DSI and two LVDS interfaces available. In this article we focus on the LVDS interfaces of the dual- and quad-core variants of the i.MX6 and explain the possible display configurations.


In the dual- and quad-core configuration, the i.MX6 comes with two Image Processing Units (IPU). Each IPU has two display ports which can be configured to send the image data either to the parallel RGB port or to the serializer bridges (HDMI, MIPI or LVDS).
