Apalis im6q temperature sensor

I would like to know that how can I get the temperature of CPU & Board in degree celcius in Embedded linux?Is it possible to get LCD voltage, Board Voltage & Cmos voltage in Embedded Linux if yes then help me?

hi @Hitesh

Could you provide the version of the hardware and software of your module?
Which carrier board are you using?

Best regards,

I am using customize carrier board which is verified by bangalore toradex.
apalis-imx6q 2gb IT v1.1B
Apalis-iMX6_Qt5-X11-Image_28b5 --software of module.

please help me, I don’t have much time to complete my assignment.


Please have a look here in regards to temperature sensors on our SoMs. So you would use:

cat /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp
cat /sys/bus/iio/devices/iio\:device0/in_temp8_input 

There are no ADCs which measure the generated voltages on the modules. The setpoints to which the various regulators are set can be read out from the sysfs. One starting point would be:


Note that the concept of battery which supplies the nonvolatile configuration on a PC BIOS is not applicable on our modules. The voltage of the battery which can be inserted on our carrier board can also not be measured by our modules.

Of course if you design your own carrier board you could add whatever is needed to make that possible. Note that such a circuit may be a greater load to a battery than the RTC ever will be.


thank you @max.tx

What is the unit of temperature which I am getting from above solution?
