1 Replies and 3115 Views Cannot TFTP load the image to RAM  3115  1 Started by  Deleted User Hi; This is the problem : Lolo> ifconfig sm0 192.168.27 and the Lolo responds with the MAC address and IP and Mask and Gateway values above. Fine ! LEDs on the ZOOM board are lit (100 mbps and link) and I check the Core VDD voltage on the PHY (SMSC LAN8700) for 1.8V meaning the internal core voltage of the PHY was good and all the bootstraps at power up should be fine.

0 Replies and 2408 Views Anyone using the SLCDC (Smart LCD Controller) on lite kit?  2408  0 Started by  dkelkenberg I have been trying to use the Smart LCD Controller interface in serial mode. I believe I have configured the registers correctly - apparently I am wrong. Monitoring the breakout board header J-18, I have been unsuccessful in getting any signal activity. Has anyone successfully implemented the SLCDC and would like to share some sample code Thank you

We just purchased a i.mx27 litekit board and I have been trying to port our work to it, but I am facing some problems: when I attach an Ethernet cable to the board no connection is detected, no led lights, and I cannot ping from the PC to the it or viceversa (even though I can configure the ip address, mask, etc. of the target). Do I have to do anything to enabl...

4 Replies and 2909 Views CSPI Signals and Registers on LiteKit?  2909  4 Started by  andreas.b Trying to get the touch to work on i.MX27 LiteKit. Apparently i.MX27ADS uses CSPI2 for the touch while LiteKit uses CSPI1. After a lot of googling, reading documentation and sourcecode I've still not managed to find where to put the necessary changes so are there anyone who has an idea I would be more than delighted to hear about it!

1 Replies and 2443 Views USB host question - updated  2443  1 Started by  Deleted User Hello, Did any one manage to use a USB stick on the imx27 zoom litekit using the linux 2.6.22 patch I need to use the iMX27 as a high speed host and can not figure out what to enable in the kernel in order to enable the USB host (type A receptacle on the baseboard). At first I though it might be because host 2 needs to be enabled but now I think this might not the case. Does anyone know which USB host on the imx27 is connected to the type A USB receptacle on the baseboard (host 1 or host 2) ...

Anyone who has patched this It compiles well but it hangs the boot right after "Uncompressing Linux.............done, booting the kernel." The display is tested from the bootloader so it's wired correctly, the framebuffer is tested on a iMX27 PDK board where it runs but on the litekit it just doesn't work. I have tried the patch from zyzyis for the 2.6.22 kernel with the same res...

7 Replies and 2528 Views Board bringup problem  2528  7 Started by  ronjobmann Hi OK, I've successfully compiled the 2.6.22 kernel with the 'patch' and can boot that up just fine. However, when the kernel's init goes to do the handoff to the userland init, things break. I get no serial output after /bin/init gets called. (Or /bin/sh, or anything else). I have the /dev device ttymxc0 created and have doublechecked the driver code to make sure I had the correct major/minor for the device. I've tried using nfs as root filesystem. According to messages I see, things see...

1 Replies and 2279 Views Problem with interfacing LCD  2279  1 Started by  Deleted User Hi all, I got some problems with interfacing my samsung LCD on the litekit. I need the LCD_OE_ACD signal for data enabling. And as far as I know, the LCD_OE_ACD signal is not muxed by other signals, which means I can get the data directly from the header on J15:74 on the expansion board. But from both experiments and the litekit schematics, the LCD_OE_ACD is muxed by the up_GPIO_5 pin, and the board uses GPIO as default. I can't find any documents about the control registers to change it back ...
