2 Replies and 1686 Views how to use nPCWAIT signal?  1686  2 Started by  Deleted User I am wondering what is the purpose nPCWAIT signal. I did not see any hardware signal generation depends on this signal. according to Application notes 'Interfacing Static memory controller with IO devices' . Seems the wait state generation is also not depends on it, instead just counting clock. So how this pin is used exactly. Does any where get soem concrete documents or timing diagram for this Thanks

1 Replies and 1646 Views Replacing program in flash  1646  1 Started by  caande I need to replace the program loaded in the flash of the card with my own. I then need to debug this program with my Lauterbach Trace32. When I try to program the flash with the Lauterbach the program returns a flash erase or program error. I then checked the VPEN pin on the flash and found out that this pin is controlled by the cpld. During my tries to program and erase this pin stays low. This mean that the flash cannot be programmed. Does anyone know of a way to control this pin

2 Replies and 1624 Views Small and simple OS  1624  2 Started by  Gadeberg Hi, Does anybody know of a simple and straight forward (and if possible free) OS for the LH7a404 I just need something to take care of a few processes and interrupts - there is a lot of talk about WinCE in these groups, but that’s way to advanced for me (I think) If somebody could point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance, Jesper

6 Replies and 1809 Views WinCE BSP framebuffer & on-chip 80KB SRAM  1809  6 Started by  noonan The WinCE 4.2 BSP indicates that the on-chip SRAM can be used as part of the framebuffer. I found this in the SetVisibleSurface() function in the PLATFORM\SDKLH7A404\DRIVERS\SOCLCD\soclcd.cpp file. Both the LCDUpBase and LCDOverflw registers are set here. Looks like it would require some code changes to make this work properly, plus some changes to MMU setup to make the internal SRAM/SDRAM combination look like one chunk of memory to the ARM processor. Is my guess about MMU setup correct If s...

13 Replies and 1828 Views Running CE Sample Development Images with other displays  1828  13 Started by  noshtims Hello, is it possible to load the sample development images on my platform using a display other then the display kits I have a 1024x768 TFT 16BPP DCLK=50 to 60MHz. I am able to get the display to work from LOLO by setting the display driver parameters accordingly. It is not clear to me, however, about how this is done for the demo images. Can this be done using a boot script If so can you provide some details on how this might be done Thanks, -Bill

2 Replies and 1596 Views Touch Screen going wonky  1596  2 Started by  abailie I have been working with the WinCE 5.0 image for about a week now and haven't manged to get my touch screen to work properly yet. It works fine under LoLo - I can calibrate it, draw pretty pictures and all the usual nonesense, but under CE it's got a mind of its own. It took me ten or fifteen attempts to get the device calibrated, as the screen stopped responding at different points through the process. Now that I have it calibrated it works quite well (sometimes gets the co-ordinates wrong) f...

1 Replies and 1522 Views Updated patches for linux-2.6.10 & New APEX Bootloader  1522  1 Started by  Deleted User I've updated the linux patches to support linux-2.6.10. At this point, the only pieces not in the kernel are the IDE driver and an MTD/maps driver (which isn't really necessary). There is also a new bootloader, APEX. I wrote it to superceed BLOB since BLOB is so difficult to build and modify. <> Cheers.
