PICO-PI-IMX8M-MINI SOM and Baseboard

There are two main boot configuration settings: Boot from EMMC, and Serial Download Mode. There is also an option to boot from MicroSD card on PICO-PI, via the included CLIX SD card adapter.

Note that on PICO-IMX8M-MINI, the default boot media is EMMC. On the module, we configure boot configuration signals to boot from the default media without needing to be pulled high or low on the baseboard. You can either leave the jumpers as set here, or remove them.
