1 Replies and 3840 Views Port A GPIO and SSP  3840  1 Started by  Deleted User Hi, I am working on a SSP driver for the LH79520. According to NXP's documentation on the CPU, there is a pin called PA0/SSPEN that is available to the user. Unfortunately I cannot find any references to this pin whatsoever in Logic's documentation. Is this pin not routed to the card engine outputs or am I missing something

I erased block zero of flash accidentally and now I can recover neither bolo nor lolo. I have IAR development kit and J-link(JTAG) in my hand but I cannot download and run any code to the board. I tried programming flash and SDRAM but none of them seems to be responding. When I tried to write to the flash it gives "memory timed out error".

I would like to use the 'bitmap' command to display images on the screen. I need to find the register settings for this display.

These instructions apply for 'Fedora Core 2' but might work for others. As i mentioned in another thread, the main problem is that some commandline tools in the supplied chrooted chain are not large filesystem aware. This results in some spawned makes to exit prematurely or return incorrect results (like the MAKEDEV package). Following steps to fix this. I had to reinstall the BDK because i couldnt get some pack...

5 Replies and 2273 Views LCD Questions  2273  5 Started by  totalslacker Hello, I'm trying to get a STN 320 x 240 4bpp display working and the lcd controller seems to be hating me. It looks like the pl110fb.c driver is really only set up for color TFT panels, so I'm sure that's the source of my problems. I have been going through what the driver is setting the lcd registers to and either making changes to the panel's lh_info struct or, in some case, modifying code to get it to do what looks to be the right thing (in cases where the code only supports tft panels). ...

3 Replies and 5267 Views Exclusive chip select signal for user memory mapped devices  5267  3 Started by  Deleted User Hi everyone, I am facing the problem to attach a memory mapped device our company developed to the Sharp Zoom SDK evaluation board. I got two different card engines (LH79520 and LH79524) and the board. Since I need an exclusive chip select signal and there is an open memory block that is free for utilization by the user I am wondering if there is a cs signal that comes out of the CPLD when I access these addresses (referenced to in the io controller spec). That is 0x5700 0000 – 0x57FF FFF...
