1. Use the NXP BSP:
The NXP i.MX8M ships with the Linux BSP that uses the WLAN ath10k driver. The board data file used is not optimized for best performance for both the on-board radio and the Silex’s SX-PCEAC2. But it does work and is the quickest way to evaluation (Not recommended for evaluation for performance and mass production purposes).
2. Use the Silex Evaluation Image (RECOMMENDED):
Silex offers an evaluation image that uses the ath10k WLAN driver and has the following advantages:
• Includes tools to test basic wireless functionality, wireless security and data throughput
• Includes the optimized board data file needed to leverage the Silex's modular certification
• Enables "AP Mode" functionality
