DMA to GPIO

Hi,

I am using Kinetis MK22 MCU. I want to transfer data from memory to GPIO PortC using DMA. When I gave TCD0_DADDR = address of GPIOC_PSOR, the DMA is not working as expected (i.e the data is not been transferred to  DADDR). Does MK22 DMA support GPIO registers as destination address?

Please refer the AN4419 Using DMA and GPIO to emulate timer functionality on Kinetis Family devices
I think you'd better use GPIOx_PDOR instead of use GPIOx_PSOR.

Thanks @robin_shen

Thanks for your help. I figured this out and exactly that was the issue.i was trying to write onto psor and read from it. But psor doesn't support read. When I changed Daddr to read from pdor it worked perfectly.

Hi

There is no restriction to doing DMA transfers to GPIO on the K22.

In the uTasker project a reference application is to bridge a UART input to GPIO output (almost as if it were a wired connection) by using this configuration:

        // Configure the DMA trigger from the UART input pin change to toggle an alternative port so that the input signal is mirrored to that output without CPU intervention
        //
        static const unsigned long ulOutput = PORTC_BIT16;               // the output to be mirrored to
        fnConfigDMA_buffer(9, DMAMUX0_CHCFG_SOURCE_PORTB, sizeof(ulOutput), (void *)&ulOutput, (void *)&(((GPIO_REGS *)GPIOC_ADD)->PTOR), (DMA_FIXED_ADDRESSES | DMA_LONG_WORDS), 0, 0); // use DMA channel 9 without any interrupts (free-runnning)

Note that it uses the PTOR register so that every write causes a toggle. Maybe you are not using  suitable register or the value being written to it is not correct (?)

Regards
