1 Replies and 1873 Views Loading applications  1873  1 Started by  Deleted User Hi, I have M5329 EVB and I can load uC linux on the board and see the OS is up. I build an application and some libraries out of the OS image. I would like to load it to the board. However, I don't know how: the OS does not have a network transfer file like FTP or TFTP. I tried to plug in a USB flash. The OS recognizes it, but I don't know how to mount the device. Any body can help me to load applications in the board, please help. Thanks much

1 Replies and 1547 Views no LCD_MDISP pulses  1547  1 Started by  hindenbu While attempting to connect up an Optrex display, we've verified our HSYNC, VSYNC, and other assorted timings and everything looks great--except, that we get no pulses at all for the LCD_MDISP at the baseboard connector pin 35. Our display requires the presence of the OE signal provided by LCD_MDISP. I am aware of a PCN pertaining to problems involving the LCD_MDISP signal, and have looked at the affected part numbers documented in the PCN. Our Fire Engine board (1005095 rev. A) isn't listed...

All the specifications seem to match those of the Sharp LQ10D368 display, and after making our custom cable, we can't seem to drive the Optrex using the provided Sharp display driver ("video-open 7 16"). Anyone out there tried to interface with an Optrex display Is there any reason to think that the Sharp drivers wouldn't be sufficient to run the Optrex, presuming the cabling is...

My values were very sporadic so I modified the driver to drop the three least significant bits and created a rolling average. It is better, but I do not get any reponse from nano-X using the nxcal program or any of the sample programs....

7 Replies and 1514 Views LCD Connections  1514  7 Started by  Lon Ok, I am finally getting to interface our LCD to the 5329 fire engine. But as I am looking at the schematics, the MCF5329's user manual and Logic's application Note 161 "Interfacing LCD's to Logic's SDK Board" I am concerned that a pin is mapped incorrectly. On Page 10 of 1001664_rev4_fire_sch.pdf it shows LCD_MDISP connected to the Contrast pin (D10) and LCD_VDDEN to the ACE/OE (B9) pin. As I follow these signals back to the LCD interface header on the SDK board it would appear th...

It appears that writing the Left/Right Headphone Volume Channel Control address with 0x000 does not mute the sound. I do hear the beep out even if I never set the vol control due to the default setting. There is a lack of initalization and operational information from the data sheet. ...

3 Replies and 1355 Views LCD Display on new M5329EVB revision  1355  3 Started by  mwaddel I'm testing our frame buffer software with the 1003987 Rev D baseboard and all I see is a white screen on the display. (It's a 12.1 in display 80000175 Rev H.) The same code works with the older boards 1004544 Rev1. I saw a PCN related to the backlight on the new boards and we tried to implement those changes. It changed the display, but it's still not right. Do you know if there is something else with the new boards and LCDs that I should look at Any hints would be appreciated.
