+***************************
+Freescale i.MX8QXP MEK board
+***************************
+
+This file documents the Buildroot support for the Freescale i.MX8QXP
+MEK board.
+
+Build
+=====
+
+First, configure Buildroot for the i.MX8QXP MEK board:
+
+ make freescale_imx8qxpmek_defconfig
+
+Build all components:
+
+ make
+
+You will find in output/images/ the following files:
+ - ahab-container.img
+ - bl31.bin
+ - boot.vfat
+ - fsl-imx8qxp-mek.dtb
+ - Image
+ - imx8-boot-sd.bin
+ - mkimg.commit
+ - mx8qx-mek-scfw-tcm.bin
+ - mx8qx-val-scfw-tcm.bin
+ - rootfs.ext2
+ - rootfs.ext4
+ - rootfs.tar
+ - sdcard.img
+ - u-boot-atf.bin
+ - u-boot.bin
+ - u-boot-hash.bin
+
+Create a bootable SD card
+=========================
+
+To determine the device associated to the SD card have a look in the
+/proc/partitions file:
+
+ cat /proc/partitions
+
+Buildroot prepares a bootable "sdcard.img" image in the output/images/
+directory, ready to be dumped on a SD card. Launch the following
+command as root:
+
+ dd if=output/images/sdcard.img of=/dev/<your-sd-device>
+
+*** WARNING! This will destroy all the card content. Use with care! ***
+
+For details about the medium image layout, see the definition in
+board/freescale/common/imx/genimage.cfg.template_imx8.
+
+Boot the i.MX8QXP MEK board
+==========================
+
+To boot your newly created system:
+- insert the SD card in the SD slot of the board;
+- Configure the boot switch as follows:
+SW2: ON ON OFF OFF
+- put a micro USB cable into the Debug USB Port and connect using a terminal
+ emulator at 115200 bps, 8n1;
+- power on the board.
+
+Enjoy!
