1 Replies and 4327 Views IAR EWARM and startup code  4327  1 Started by  Patrick Perdu Hi all, I recently had questions here about SDRAM initialization and startup consideratins. I figured it out so I would like to ensure at least taht nobody blocks stupidly as I did. Here is the CStartup.s79 file I ended with. Please note tnhat the stacks are not initialized, the interrupt vectors are neither. All this must be done, I elected to do it in C in the low_level_init() function called by IAR system after (very) low level init. Of course to init the vectors, we need to have them in RA...

I want to use the touchscreen to evaluate a new design and I it doesn't work fine. It's imposible to calibrate. Anyone know any bug with touchscreen Or I have missed some configuratiion with the development kit !. Please Logic, help to use your development kit. It will be very disappointing to discard this board if the touchscreen doesn't work.

5 Replies and 1672 Views Do I Have A Wrong Version of BDK or What?  1672  5 Started by  Kenneth Lerman My BDK is ’02101lh9520bdk.iso’ The patch file I downloaded contained: lpd-linux-LLH79520-02.tgz The 'white paper' refers to: tar xzvf lpd-linux-LLH79520-04.tgz Clearly NOT the same, but I downloaded it today, so what the heck, I continued. The tar command worked fine... sort of. But the file ownership was messed up because the owners of some of the files were not root and I was running as root. (I bet there is another switch to tar that will set the owner to me even if I'm root.) So I did ...

1 Replies and 1396 Views ANSWER: NFS Hogs The System and Causes Screen Tearing  1396  1 Started by  Kenneth Lerman Updated: 1 October 2004 -- (Partial) Answer: Screen tearing is caused by the fact that the processor is not fast enough to support the refresh rate. Reducing the refresh rate to 40 Hz solves the problem -- at the cost of some flicker. 50 Hz did NOT solve the problem. I'll try 45 Hz when I get a chance. ------------------------------------ Original post is below ------------------------------------ I'm copying a largish (3.5meg) file from an NFS mounted file system to root.

He found that in order to get the touch screen working correctly he had to modify the file qt-3.3.2/src/embedded/qmouselinuxtp_qws.cpp in the same way that the Qt 2.3.2 file qt-2.3.2/src/kernel/qwsmouse_qws.cpp was modified by the Lineo patches. mt

1 Replies and 1489 Views How Can I Build My Own "Motherboard"?  1489  1 Started by  Kenneth Lerman I'd like to build my own board which acts as a motherboard for the Card Engine. But I don't have anything documenting the physical footprint of the card engine. I have artwork, but clearly a pdf file is not a reasonable way to generate the measurements I require. A set of Gerber files would work, but my preferred format would be 'Eagle' format. That way I could just incorporate it into my design. Another problem, of course, is that I'm not really setup to build boards with surface mounted c...

1 Replies and 1422 Views Problem with TOUCHSCREEN  1422  1 Started by  Kenneth Lerman I run the paint program. Then select a color. When I touch the screen, the point I touch gets a pixel set, and then as long as I hold the touch, other pixels are set -- usually in an area about half and inch to the right and 3/8 of an inch above the point I touched. They form a 'cloud' in that area. I assume this is a bug. -- although it could be a feature. More Info: I've written a program to print the raw data from the touchscreen. The results show roughly the behavior I've seen: (1...
