1 Replies and 1411 Views I/O controller headaches  1411  1 Started by  Deleted User Would anyone know the reason why when I peek and poke at the card engines control register at 0x54200000 under LOLO, I/m not able to clear the LAN power enable bit... When I read back the registers value, I also see that bit 1 is sometimes set (no documentation I've seen refers to this bit as being of any use)... I've only been able to download logics P/N: 70000015 I/O controller spec sheet (next to useless), and would like to know where I can get my hands on some detailed timing data, bit d...

3 Replies and 1480 Views newer arm-linux-gcc crosscompiler toolchain possible?  1480  3 Started by  JadePhoenix Greetings! I just want to know if someone successfully used a newer arm-linux-gcc cross toolchain either prebuild or self-made. The one supplied with the BDK is rather old (2.95.x) and is not suited for our application development needs (C, templates) . Is upgrading to newer toolchain (3.4.x with glibc 2.2x, libstdc v3) for this platform possible without much work/sidefalls Did someone use cross toolchain build scripts like 'crosstool' for this purpose Thanks in advance. Best regards.

1 Replies and 1479 Views Lolo and Threadx  1479  1 Started by  jmcclin2 Hi, I want to run Threadx app on the evaluation board in SDRAM; how can encapsulate the interrupts and exceptions for ThreadX if Lolo is down at location 0 where my interrupt/exception table should be (Or am I missing something here). All of the low-level threadX code that I have seen requires you to 'route' the interrupts and exceptions through Threadx so that it can save/restore the context properly. Any insight would be great, thanks, Jeremy

3 Replies and 1533 Views Possible Documentation Error  1533  3 Started by  Anonymous The PeriphClkCtrl register in the RCPC is documented in the Sharp literature as: b3 : (reserved) b4 : 0=Enable timer 0 & 1 clock. 1=disable. b5 : 0=Enable timer 2 & 3 clock. 1=disable. b6 : (reserved) But, in the include file src/inc/sharp/LH79520_rcpc.h, we see... define RCPC_CLKCTRL_CT0_DISABLE _BIT(3) define RCPC_CLKCTRL_CT1_DISABLE _BIT(4) define RCPC_CLKCTRL_CT2_DISABLE _BIT(5) define RCPC_CLKCTRL_CT3_DISABLE _BIT(6) Who's right

2 Replies and 1555 Views BoLo wont flash LoLo  1555  2 Started by  Anonymous I have overwritten LoLo with our application code to make sure it starts correctly on a reset. It does, so I then tried to use BoLo to re-flash the LoLo back in. The LoLo ELF image loads OK, but the burn command reports unable to open /dev/flash11 for burn Typeing 'burn /dev/flash11' gives the same result. How can I reflash LoLo into the card engine Many thanks. P.S. Are these support questions actually monitored or acted upon

Does anyone have suggestions for CF reader/writers that are known to work with RH I figure via USB. Can I just use any USB-based CF r/w Any other way to get the file system onto the CF card (anyway to do it from a Windows PC for instance) Thanks.
