0 Replies and 2515 Views Transfer acknowledge logic for Compact Flash  2515  0 Started by  logiclab I'm working on MCF5329EVB and I found a problem () with the connection of FlexBus Transfer Acknowledge (/TA) from Compact Flash to the CPU. Looking at the schematics of the baseboard, the nCHRDY signal is connected to pin -WAIT (42) of the compact flash (page 5) and it ends on page 2 at 144PIN MCF5329 engine card connector (also on page 10 test-point). Looking at the schematics of the MCF5329 engine can be seen that the signal nCHRDY from page 2 ends in a logic inverter (SN74ALVC14DGVR) on page...

6 Replies and 2553 Views Performance  2553  6 Started by  Deleted User I noticed that the hardware documentation states that the 5329 evaluation boards runs internally at 240 Mhz. after power-on-reset. This is noted on pages 8 and 9 of the MCF-5329-10 Hardware Specification (Logic PN 1004028). Using the LogicLoader monitor, I looked at the Chip Configuration Register (CCR at 0Xfc0a0004) and a value of 0x0009 was returned. Bit 1(PLL MODE) = 0 indicates that the processor PLL derived clock is running at 180 instead of 240 Mhz. First, is this true If so, how can...

1 Replies and 2703 Views Mechanical problem with SDK, USB Multilink, and Display Kit  2703  1 Started by  PWR Hello out there, we are new in ColdFire development and have started with the Zoom ColdFire SDK and the Zoom 6.4" Display Kit. As you know the SDK comes with the USB BDM Interface from P&E Microcomputer Systems. Provided that the problem does not sit in front of the computer screen and between my ears, from the included documentation I deduce that the correct orientation of the BDM Interface in respect to the SDK board is as shown in the included picture. This however would collide wit...

1 Replies and 2646 Views MCF5329 UART2  2646  1 Started by  SD_EE I have an application that requires three UARTs. I have verified the operation of UART0 and UART1 on the eval board, but UART2 has some strange behavior. Anything that I transmit on UART2 also shows up on the recieve line - not only in the read buffer, but I can see what I transmit on the recieve line with an oscilloscope. Why is whatever I transmit also showing up on the receiver Is this due to the external CAN and RS232 circuitry on the eval board Is this a problem with the 5329 silicon B...

0 Replies and 2240 Views Passing EMI testing  2240  0 Started by  Deleted User Problem: We're seeing EMI spikes at 120MHz & 360MHz that we've isolated to the SOM board. If I program the Flash to do a 'halt' as the first instruction out of reset, the spikes are still there. Hold reset low and the spikes go away. Any pointers to the main sources of EMI and solutions would be helpful. Solution: The silver bullet is disabling the MCF5329 Debug Module. The MCF5329 supports real time processor debugging. The side effect is by default the JTAG/PST lines spam out processor ...

15 Replies and 2913 Views Using LoLo with the Freescale BSP  2913  15 Started by  Deleted User I have been trying to use Lolo as a boot loader for the uclinux image I have built using the BSP supplied by Freescale. The image I have built downloads and runs fine using Dbug, but I cannot seem to get it to work through Lolo. I want to use Lolo, so I can do some simple logic of mounting the Compact Flash, check for a new image, dump that image to flash, dump flash image to ram, run the image. I can do all of that except for running the image. Whenever I try to load it using the command loa...

2 Replies and 2593 Views Auxillary GPIO ports using SPI  2593  2 Started by  Deleted User Hi I writing an additional GPIO driver based on the mcp23s17 SPI chip. I have problems with the spi_write_then_read() function. The returned value is dummy (0xFF or 0x00). I tried different values ".del_cs_to_clk" and ".del_after_trans" in the chip structure, without results. I checked signals on the SPI bus using oscilloscope and they are correct. The spi_write() function work very good. I think it is software problem. Here is my function form the driver module: static ...

3 Replies and 2523 Views Audio Codec does not respond  2523  3 Started by  Samuraiburger Hi folks Im trying for two weeks now getting the TI320AIC23B on the board to work. Since the CPU cannot supply the required 12MHz Clk, I removed R116 and soldered in C51, C52 and the Y2 quartz. (I used a 10MHz, but this should not be a problem for testing) This provides a smooth clock signal. The amplitude is with about 100mv a bit small, but CLKOUT pin shows a nice rectangular 3.3V at 10MHz, so this seems alright. Logic analyser verifies that all 16bit data words on the SPI are identical t...

2 Replies and 2367 Views CAN for Linux  2367  2 Started by  Deleted User Hi All, I want to transmit CAN message using can_send function and when I try to do this with extended IDs (29 bits) I receive (on the other PC) only 17 bits of the CAN IDs. For example I send CAN message with ID=0x1FFFFFFF and on receiving site I get only ID=0x0001FFFF. I am sure that I put right ID in can_send function and that the receive application work properly (type of the variable). When I am sending can message with standard ID everything it's ok. Thank's for any sugestions ! Regards
