0 Replies and 1364 Views Article: TI-All -- ESD Protection on the SOM  1364  0 Started by  Deleted User Q: Does the SOM have ESD protection A: No, the SOM does not have ESD protection. The reason for this is that the SOM was designed to be adaptable to many different applications, which makes it impractical to design in ESD protection. The SOM does not provide any ESD protection circuitry on the board and must be provided by the product it is used in. Logic PD has extensive experience in designing products with ESD requirements.

0 Replies and 2161 Views Article: TI-All: How To Format An SD Card For Booting  2161  0 Started by  Deleted User Q: Where can I find a tool to format my SD card so I can use it to boot my TI based development kit A: The HP USB Formatting Tool version 2.0.6 appears to be the best tool for formatting an SD card so it can be used to boot TI-based Development Kits into LogicLoader. Using the HP USB Formatting Tool ensures that an extended partition is not created on the SD card (a requirement of the OMAP process). The most recent version of the tool available on HP's site doesn't seem to work as well as ve...

The SD card can hold the UBL, U-Boot, Kernel, rootfs and other files. Silicon version 2.0 and earlier, require the arm-mmcsd-ais.bin UBL file to be installed in the SPI Boot Flash. Then the SD card can be used as the source of U-Boot, Kernel, rootfs, and other files. The arm-mmcsd-ais.bin UBL file is delivered with the TI PSP sof...

There were accommodations in 2.6.33 for silicon revisions up to 1.1 but not for 2.0 as there are in 2.6.37. To account for this, Below is a patch for the following change: In kernel linux-2.6.33/arch/arm/mach-davinci/da850.c, add a definition to da850_id list which is needed for OMAP-L138 silicon revision 2.0 ...
