Quick Start

This board is supported in both Yocto v2.23.1 and v3.9.0. Yocto v3.9.0 is preferred option.

Build BSP images

Please follow these instruction to build BSP http://elinux.org/R-Car/Boards/Yocto-Gen3-ADAS#Building_the_BSP_for_Renesas_ADAS_boards:

At step 6,7 - skip these steps
At step 9 - replace this step with following:
For Yocto v2.23.1:

cp $WORK/meta-rcar/meta-rcar-gen3-adas/docs/sample/conf/v3msk/linaro-gcc/bsp/*.conf ./conf/

For Yocto v3.9.0:

cp $WORK/meta-rcar/meta-rcar-gen3-adas/docs/sample/conf/v3msk/poky-gcc/bsp/*.conf ./conf/

At step 10,11,12 - skip these steps
At step 14 - replace this step with following:

bitbake core-image-minimal

At step 17 use images depending on board:

Installing V3M Starter Kit Expansion Board

Use the following procedure to install Expansion Board to the V3MSK Board.

1. Dismount the back plastic plate from the R-Car V3M Starter Kit board.
1.1 Put the V3M Starter Kit board on the front panel to access to the hex standoffs.

Step 1.



1.2 Unscrew all hex standoffs and put away plastic back plate.

Step 2.



2. Aligning V3M Board Starter Kit to V3M SK Expansion Board.
2.1 Find COM Express connectors on both V3M Starter Kit and Expansion boards.
2.2 Align and carefully push them to each other until COM Express connectors are fully inserted.

To prevent the damage during connecting boards, apply the pressure mainly on the points marked with arrows on Step 3. picture.

Step 3.



2.3 Make sure that boards are aligning each other closely, without a gap.

No gap between the connected boards.



3. Check jumper position according to the Step 4. picture (marked with red).

Step 4.


Jumper SW1 controlls cameras power supply.

SW1 Jumper Settings
1-2 3-4 Vcameras
OFF OFF 5V
ON OFF 9V
ON ON 11V


4. Connecting Power and Communication cable.
4.1 Find automotive Power and Communication cable and it's port on the V3M SK Expansion Board.

Warning Warning: To avoid board damage, automotive cable need to be connected to 12V power supply only. Do not connect power cable to the V3M SK board power port.


Step 5.



4.2 Plug the Cable in the port. Make sure that the latch in the same position as shows Step 6. picture. and cable is placed to fit the port.

Step 6.



4.3 Start the cable insertion by pushing the latch's edge.

Step 7.



4.4 Finish the connection. Step 8. shows final latch position.

Step 8.



5. Now you can plug cameras to the Fakra ports.
