1 Replies and 2618 Views Available Address Space - Internal Data Bus for MPC8360E-RDK  2618  1 Started by  Deleted User Hi everyone, I am new to MPC8360E-RDK. My hardware guy is working on a DAC daughter board, which communicates with MPC8386E-RDK board through internal data bus. He need 1K-byte address space. I am checking Chapter 2 Memory Map and Chapter 10 Local Bus Controller on MPC8360E reference manual but still not clear. I am confused by multiplexed address/data bus LAD&910:31&93 in Chapter 10. I will try to understand the usage of LAD so as to skip existing space used by different peripherals (li...

0 Replies and 2748 Views How Do I Modify SPMF and COREPLL in RCWLR on MPC8360E?  2748  0 Started by  Deleted User I would like to change the csb and lbc clock speed by modifying the SPMF and COREPLL values in the RCWLR (reset configuration word low register) on MPC8360E-RDK board based on the settings s12 and c4 mentioned in Table 76, p. 97 and 98 on MPC8360E hardware reference manual. Since this is a read-only register, how can I do it On P. 4-11, the manual mentions the reset configuration words are loaded from local bus or from I2C interface or from hard-coded values during power-on or hard reset flow...

The Core speed is 660 Mhz and the local bus controller is 330 Mhz and Local Bus runs at 41 Mhz when it comes up. I can use local bus clock divider to change the local bus speed to 165 (divided by 2), 82 (divided by 4) and 41 (divided by . According to the specification, the local bus can go up to 133 Mhz. what should I do in order to make the bus running at maximum speed (133 Mhz) Thanks, Jew-Dong

1 Replies and 2961 Views Porting QNX to MPC8360E-RDK  2961  1 Started by  classicajain I am using QNX RTOS for our MDS8360E-RDK target. QNX has its own BSP for MPC8360E-MDS. The thing is the memory map is not the same. I will very appreciate if you could give me some suggestions and show me how to port QNX BSP code from MPC8360E-MDS to MPC8360-RDK. I am not familiar with the board bringup though. Thanks, Jew-Dong

But a problem occurs. Basically we need 3 files to be flashed into the board right the linux kernel, the rootfilesystem, and the DTB file. As i compiled the LTIB package for JFFS2 target filesyste, no new DTB file was created. The only DTB file found in the LTIB directory structure is under images/ firectory. So i used that and flashed onto the board. I followed every detail instr...

0 Replies and 2498 Views SPI bus  2498  0 Started by  jwyatt I'm working on getting a custom SPI device to work connected to the PowerQUICC baseboard SPI connector (J41). The BSP creates an SPI bus as /dev/spi, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to create an SPI device. Has anyone else done this Or used the A/D or the EEPROM on the com-express board

0 Replies and 2089 Views Changing clock speeds  2089  0 Started by  les I am interested in adjusting the clock speed of the processor core. This is primarily in the interest of saving power (decreasing heat dissipation). The default clock seems to be 660 MHz. I wish to run somewhere between 200 and 400 MHz. Also, what are the issues associated with making such a change And is there another way to decrease power use thanks, Les Corn

0 Replies and 2289 Views UEC on MPC8360ERDK  2289  0 Started by  sampath Peter, I have configured the ethernet PHY as generic MII and link comes up correctly. I have virtually unmodified uec.c and uec_phy.c and yet I do not see the frames on the wire. I loopback UEC0 and UEC1 with a crossover cable. I see the frames leave the TX BD FSL UEC0 without error but the RX BD on the FSL UEC1 does not see the frame. Is it a problem to configure the BCM 5481 are generic MII I thought that will limit other features like interrupt on change in link status but will work otherw...
