APF6Dev is the Armadeus Systems sixth-generation family of multi-purpose ARM+FPGA-based System On Modules (SOM) with it's development board. It is capable of running either Kodi on Android or on Linux, using firmware images generated by Buildroot adaptation provided by Armadeus Systems development team.
APF6 SOM uses scalable and open source friendly Freescale i.MX6 family of SoC (System-on-Chip) ranging from a single to quad ARM Cortex-A9 processor cores, 2D/3D hardware graphics processing unit, video decoding and encoding acceleration hardware, and HDMI 1.4 1080p output support. SOM has onboard eMMC Flash / DDR3 RAM and optionnal Wi-Fi module.
1 Installing Kodi
The easiest way to use Kodi on an APF6Dev is to install a Kodi-specific Buildroot generated OS image to the APF6 onboard eMMC. The APF6Dev will boot directly up into Kodi and nearly every setting can be easily configured within the Kodi GUI
- Buildroot - instructions
Kodi can also be installed onto an APF6Dev that is running Android using the normal Android instructions.
2 Hardware specification
- 1000Mbps link is limited to 470Mbps actual bandwidth due to i.MX6 chip limitation
