0 Replies and 1641 Views PCi and edgeport-7 interrupt  1641  0 Started by  Deleted User The m54x5evb board uses edgeport-7 as one of the two PCI interrupts. The coldfire V4ECFUM table 2-2 states that this interrupt is not maskable using the interrupt priority mask in the status register. This creates heartburn when trying to support the board since some operating systems must mask off interrupts during critical code sections. Have there been any reports of problems supporting this and have there been any suggested solutions Rich

I've flashed the uImage which is available from the BSP downloaded from the Freescale site. To do the application debugging we would require the binary AppTRK under /usr/bin of the linux filesys. But my linux filesys doesn't contain the binary. Since I wanted to build image again using ltib, configuration is not having AppTRK in the package list. Please suggest, how ...

We can make two seperate projects that work for each device alone. However when we combine them we one faults the other. My quesiton is looking at the schematic for this board I noticed that IRQ 5 is attached to the IP1561 board and to the SM712 display. Is this correct I don't understand why...

1 Replies and 1512 Views Cant write or erase the application flash (U14 on MCF5475EV)  1512  1 Started by  Deleted User I am not able to Erase or program the application flash. However i m able to read the manufacturers code and other stuff on the flash. I have a confusion . The schematic shows a pin WP* which comes from CPLD. However the datasheet for the 28F128 device does not have such a pin. If we need to make the WP* low, then how do i do it Also the part number mentioned in the schemtic and the other docs for U14 is 28F256 while the actual device when i see on the board is 28F128. Please guide.

1 Replies and 1539 Views CPLD firmware update  1539  1 Started by  Deleted User After registration, I received CPLD firmware (MCF547X__64.upd) from Logicpd. I downloaded it with the “update” command in Lolo; after that, if I press S3 button, the line IRQ6 will come back to 0 (correct behavior). The problem is that if I reset the system (S1 button or switch off and then switch on), the S3 button will not have effect on IRQ6 line (monitored on pin 44 of J12 with an oscilloscope). My questions are: - Have I to program CPLD after each power on or reset For me this is not p...

2 Replies and 1526 Views M5475EVB JTAG ID indicates a MCF5485 CPU  1526  2 Started by  plattro We just got a M5475EVB, and are starting to explore, looking at register values, etc. so we can start developing software. There is a register "JTAG-ID" at MBAR0x50 that reports the actual CPU chip, that has the value 0x0800C01D. According to the MCF5475 manual, I should see 0x801201D for a MCF5475 part. The value that I read indicates a MCF5485 part! The part on the board has "MCF5475ZP266" engraved on it. We chose the MCF5475 because of the CPU speed, and don't care ab...

0 Replies and 1445 Views I2c first use  1445  0 Started by  Deleted User I downloaded the I2C component and added it to the catalog. Now, I wonder if there is any documentation on how to use it, or how to find the API into the functionality. This probably sounds like a dumb question, but I am new to CE and Logic. Still learning my way around. I know I2C bus communication quite well (lots of 8-bit MCU experience). By the way, using the PXA270, win CE50. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

0 Replies and 1418 Views CPLD/Flash question  1418  0 Started by  newuser Dear Sirs, We have an application that needs additional flash storage, we are considering using one of the FireEngine boards with the optional 16MB flash or using a CompactFlash card. Losh is not used for these applications. Both Nor Flash and CompactFlash interface through the CPLD. First is there a document that shows how the CPLD is programmed to access these devices. Second is there such a thing as a non-Losh based CompactFlash Driver. Thank You
