Some months ago I purchased an Apalis iMX6Q 2GB module and an Evaluation Board, with the aim of performing some basic testing on the Evaluation Board before incorporating the module into my custom carrier board. I’ve only this morning actually removed the module and board from their packaging and set everything up. I’ve applied a 12V source to the X15 connector (per the datasheet), but on pressing the on/off button (SW9), I only receive the 3V3 LED (3V3_SW, 5V_SW and 12V_SW stay off) and the RESET_MOCI LED is permanently on. Using the RESET switch has no impact.
From the research I’ve done, the RESET_MOCI LED is asserted if the module isn’t able to boot, and the 3V3_SW, 5V_SW and 12V_SW rails won’t be activated until the relevant MOCI enable output is asserted by the module. Given that the module should have come with an OS pre-installed, is this likely to be a dead/defective module?
Any input would be greatly appreciated; I had planned on testing the custom carrier board with this module over the coming days, so a dead module would be somewhat disastrous at this stage!
