3 Replies and 1198 Views Recover Torpedo Wireless SOM  1198  3 Started by  Joshua Pagnotta Hi, We have a SOM installed in our device which doesn&39;t appear to be outputing anything over its console UART on power on. The last working time this SOM was booted a nand erase.chip was performed in u-boot and after that inserting a boot SD card (made with the mkLogicFATCard.sh) with MLO and u-boot files on it won&39;t boot at all. Nothing prints on the UART console. I tried putting the files from 1028255 DM37x SOM Recover NAND flash procedure in product downloads on a bo...

1 Replies and 1097 Views PMIC RTC Security  1097  1 Started by  Alex Roberts Looking at the schematics, MSecure signal on the TPS65950 PMIC is tied high to 1.8V (VIO_1V8). I am assuming this puts the PMIC in secure, preventing my ability write to the real-time clock registers via I2C. A quick test in LOSH shows writing the year, for example, does not update the register value. From the TPS65950 TRM,  YEARS_REG is in the 0x4B group and the physical address is 0x21 losh> x /b 0x004B0021 1 /dev/pm0 0x004B0021 00 losh> w /b 0x004B0021 0x17 /dev/pm0 l...

5 Replies and 1408 Views DM3730 Torpedo  1408  5 Started by  Greg Durant I&39;ve a design with the Torpedo (dm3730) in an embedded (SOM interfaced to a USB/Eth bridge device on custom board) implementation. I&39;m unable to get the SOM to recognize the USB/Eth bridge device physically (USB data lines) interfaced to the SOM&39;s USB OTG port. Additionally, the USB_ID pin is grounded on the custom card to indicate to the SOM it is to be the host. Can you add any insight into what the problem would be I&39;ve since noticed this specific note in the Torpedo HW Speci...

4 Replies and 1294 Views libusb and mainstream kernel  1294  4 Started by  Brian Frohlich Hi,   I am trying to port code from linux 3.xx to the mainstream 4.4.9. &39;lsusb&39; shows me the  the device I am interested in, but I cannot write or read. The application for communicating with the device uses libusb and worked fine in linux 3.xx and recompiled without a problem. Anyone been able to communicate with their usb device on DM37xx with the mainstream release   Thanks.

2 Replies and 1125 Views Bare Metal McBSP issue  1125  2 Started by  Mark Gregory I am currently running McBSP2 to interface to an ADC using the SRG to generate the clock and frame sync and receive into DR. All signals look to have appropriate amplitudes and timing except for the frame sync. Frame sync is ~.9V half of what I expect (1.8V).  After reviewing all of the SOM and EVM board schematics it looks like there are no connections to the McBSP2 module except to the TPS65950 power module. The SOM schematic specifies that if there are any codecs or external mcbsp mod...

1 Replies and 1149 Views uP_D8 thru uP_D14 data lines as GPIOs  1149  1 Started by  Deleted User We would like to use the signals labeled uP_D8 thru uP-D14 as GPIOs They are labeled as either processor data lines, or GPIO on the schematic. How are these lines configured as GPIO (the same as other GPIOs via /sys/class/gpio system calls) and what will prevent them from toggling during boot-time until configured as GPIOs

5 Replies and 1562 Views Unable to flash Mainstream Linux RAMdisk/ubifs to NAND  1562  5 Started by  Elisabeth Baca Hello All, I have been using the Beta Mainstream Linux VM to try and flash my DM3730 Torpedo SOM. I have successfully booted it from an SD card with the EXT3 rootfs, but I&39;m having trouble both booting from RAMdisk on an SD card, and then (since that doesn&39;t work), I can&39;t get to the part where I would mount/add the ubifs into NAND. When I go to boot from RAMdisk, kernel seems to hang on the &39;Starting Kernel...&39; message. I&39;m not getting any more output from the debug U...

3 Replies and 1337 Views TPS65950 (PMIC) Backup Battery Voltage giving unexpected readings  1337  3 Started by  John Huang I&39;ll state the obvious first, in case anyone needs some background. I am working with the Torpedo DM3730 SOM which has an integrated PMIC (Tps65950).  According to the PMIC, we can stick a coin cell to the backup battery to keep the RTC running.  Then the voltage of the coin cell can be read using MADC CH9. In the Linux BSP User Guide, it offers a script to do exactly just this.  I have ran the script and I am able to read the ADC values for CH9 and the script also convert...

6 Replies and 1718 Views DM3730-SOM: Configuration of I2C1 to communicate to PMIC.  1718  6 Started by  John Huang I am working on the DM3730 Torpedo SOM using the provided Linux 2.4-4 BSP.  I understand the I2C-1 bus coming out of the DM3730 IC goes directly to the TPS65950 (PMIC) as the main form of communication.  To send I2C data and request over this bus, I am relying on the i2c-dev.h bus driver and the use of open/ioctl/read calls. Using these mechanisms, I have been successfully at talking to multiple external i2c devices through the I2C-3 bus.  In fact, I&39;ve hooked up a Logic An...

9 Replies and 1681 Views MUSB Peripheral with Mainstream Linux  1681  9 Started by  Eric B I&39;m using a 4.8.6 kernel with my DM3730 SOM and am trying to use it as a USB peripheral. I am able to successfully load the module, connect the USB cable, and load the driver on a Windows 7 host. The device functions perfectly for a while but about a minute after connecting to the host the USB gadget driver seems to go into a suspended state which causes the device to become unrecognized by the host. I have tried this with the g_serial and g_mass_storage gadgets and they both produce similar...
