15 Replies and 1913 Views thermal analysis of omap dm3730 with POP  1913  15 Started by  thomas caltabellotta Chapter 5 of white paper 540, DM3730/AM3703 SOM-LV Thermal Management points out that heat can be conducted out the top through of the SOM-LV through the PoP memory package.Table 5.1 presents some thermal dissipation data generated by Logic PD. However, this table is not detailed enough to allow me to calculate an effective junction to case thermal resistance through the memory. Is it possible to get more detailed data Ideally, I would need to know 1. Ambient Air Temperature 2. Thermal interf...

7 Replies and 1778 Views Frame rotation flicker  1778  7 Started by  Michael Lavoie I'm migrating a WinCE SOMOMAP3530 project from the (small) 128MB SDRAM to the (large) 256MB SDRAM version.  I am experiencing a display flicker when the frame refreshes.  I've traced this back to a Platform.reg setting.  A few comments from the file are:     ; Note: Rotation should not be used with the flat frame buffer, memory/bus bandwidth may     ; be exceeded by display scanning requirements causing display to flicker and/or lock up. There is n...

4 Replies and 1881 Views USB power control  1881  4 Started by  Michael Lavoie I have an existing SOM-LV design that is showing a USB port issue when using a new (to this platform) device.  When this new device is plugged into the OTG port, the USB will cycle disconnect/connect.  The device is attempting to pull ~450mA through the port.  The VBUS (5v) is repeatably cycling on/off. I don't have schematic for the SOM.  As a registered user, can I get one  (Where can I find one) It appears the SOM is using the tps65950 USB-phy for the OTG port.&n...

9 Replies and 2664 Views Unable to boot Mainstream Kernel from SD card  2664  9 Started by  Carter Reynolds Hey everyone, I am having difficulty booting the DM3730 torpedo with the Mainstream Kernel with either of the methods described in the user manual. I am able to create the correct SD card as described for RAMDisk but board either does not respond at all or shows the X-Loader for the 2.4.4 BSP. I had that BSP previously loaded on the board so I was thinking I needed to change some of the environment variables but I have been unable to find the right combination.  The EXT3 rootFS method I am...

2 Replies and 1661 Views Resetting OMAP35x SOM-LV to factory condition  1661  2 Started by  Stephen Newberry Hello, I have a cache of older OMAP35x SOM-LV's, some of which have given us 'NAND Flash Errors'. I'd like to return these modules to a factory condition. I have access to the OMAP module development board. What is the proper procedure for this I see in the Zoom OMAP35x Development Kit user manual, section 4, shows how to recover corrupt boot NAND flash. Will this accomplish what I'm trying to do    Thank you, Stephen

1 Replies and 1626 Views WiFi power/human proximity  1626  1 Started by  Bret Pollack Is there any way I can get around this for short periods of time The WiFi (802.11n, 2.4G) will be turned on only occasionally, and it would make things much easier for our customers if we could allow them to wear/hold  the device when WiFi is turned on.

2 Replies and 1747 Views Spurious Touch Screen Presses  1747  2 Started by  chad.grant Are there any known issues with the TSC2004 giving spurious touch events We are using the DM3730 in a custom board with WinCE 6.0 and we will sporadically get fake touch events from the touch screen. Here are things we've tried: Put .01uf filtering capacitors on the touch lines. Tried various different timing values by modifying touchscreen.cpp. Gone so far to even try running the TSC2004 in chip controlled mode instead of host controlled. Some things have seemed to work b...
