4 Replies and 1301 Views FlexBus CS pins and accessing unallocated memory space  1301  4 Started by I have the feeling this is really a simple question, but it's a hurdle I have to get over... We've bought a couple of the Logic eval kits (FireEngine/ITX) to do development on. I want to hang a bytewide parallel device onto a CF processor; for the sake of discussion let's say it's a Hitachi character LCD. Looking at the ITX board schematics, I see that the PC104 connectors have FlexBus signals on them, including 3 FBCS lines. I decide I want to generate FBCS3 for my LCD. I cleaned the sold...

3 Replies and 1447 Views M5474LITE PCI INTA connected to IRQ7?  1447  3 Started by Hi - we've started working with the PCI slot on this board, only to realize that PCI INTA is tied to IRQ7. From what I can tell, IRQ7 is an NMI, and is not configurable in the interrupt controller. This would imply that I can never mask interrupts generated from my PCI card, which will cause problems in our OS which needs to disable all interrupts during certain sections of the code. Assuming my interpretation of IRQ7 is correct, I either need to run my PCI card in polling mode (not use the INTA...

7 Replies and 1372 Views Boot-up sequence  1372  7 Started by In my past applications at boot-up the loader(not LoLo or BoLo) looks for a character at the serial port. If the character is seen the loader executes commands to transfered a program file from a PC and burn to flash. If no character is seen the loader then jumps to a progarm location in flash. Since BoLo is gone, is there a way to reproduce the above steps using LoLo scripts newuser

9 Replies and 1330 Views Can't build the Metrowerks BSP kernel  1330  9 Started by I am trying to build the Metrowerks MCF547x 2.4 kernel (non pcs) under cygwin running under Windows XP. The first 2 steps seems to go ok ('make fresh', 'make config-m547xlite'). The third step ('make dep') runs for about 2 minutes and crashes with a 'too many arguements' error. Does anyone have any experience with this BSP version Please don't answer with a lot on UNIX techno-babble. I have never seen UNIX before, so all this is brand new to me.
