    I am trying to port code from lh520 to lh524 and need to read from a 32bit io resource.
    In the lh520 board, Video_nCS was available and worked for 32 bit access at address 0x44000000

    In lh524, I could not see how to get Video to work. So, I am trying both
    fast_nmcs and slow_nmcs signals to access the same 32 bit resource
    on my application board ( custom ). The moment I switch the configuration of the SMC
    to 32 bit, the board quits getting either of the chip selects.

    Can someone clarify how I can access a 32 bit resource on custom app boards which worked
    for the lh520 boards. OS is linux.

    Hi Sreedhar,

    For slow nmcs, you can make the FIFO address to start from 0x4A000000 or 0x4B000000
    For fast nmcs, you can make the FIFO address to start from 0x4D000000 for 16-bit data or 0x4F000000 for 32-bit data

    Don't forget to change the bus memory width to 32-bit via changing SCONFIG:mW2 which I believe has the address of 0xFFFF1240, you can check the manual for more information

    Please let me know if you have anymore questions

    Peace :)
