    The ArmSoM-W3 has a power LED and user LED.

    • Power Indicator LED
      The power LED is green. On the ArmSoM-W3 it is solid on by default when powered.

    • User Indicator LED
      The user LED is blue. By default its blinking state shows a running kernel.

    The user can control via commands:

    armsom@armsom-w3:/# sudo su
    root@armsom-w3:/# echo timer > /sys/class/leds/blue:status/trigger
    root@armsom-w3:/# echo activity > /sys/clas


    • The ArmSoM-W3 is equipped with an RTC IC hym8563.
    • First, insert the RTC battery to power the RTC IC.
    • Note that we should keep the RTC battery in the RTC connector and confirm the rtc hym8563 device has been created
    armsom@armsom-w3:/#  dmesg | grep rtc
    [ 6.407133] rtc-hym8563 6-0051: rtc information is valid

    Use v4l2-ctl for image capture

    armsom@armsom-w3:/# v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video11 --set-fmt-video=width=3840,height=2160,pixelformat=NV12 --stream-mmap=3 --stream-skip=60 --stream-to=/tmp/cif73.out --stream-count=3 --stream-poll

    Use gst-launch-1.0 for direct video recording

    armsom@armsom-w3:/# gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video11 ! video/x-raw,format=NV12,width=3840,height=2160, framerate=30/1 ! xvimagesink
