Recently some customers are porting SDK 2.0 u-boot for LS1021ATWR to their custom boards. They intended to use GPIO lines to turn on/off LEDs for diagnostics and other various purposes. However GPIO driver is not supported in SDK 2.0 u-boot for LS102xa platform. The attached patch is used to add GPIO driver on LS1021ATWR platform based on SDK 2.0 u-boot code. Please use it in SDK 2.0 as the following: $ source ./fsl-setup-env -m ls1021atwr $ bitbake u-boot -c cleansstate $ bitbake u-boot -c patch Go to the folder build_ls1021atwr/tmp/work/ls1021atwr-fsl-linux-gnueabi/u-boot-qoriq/2016.01+fslgit-r0/git, apply the attached patch $ patch -p1<0001-ls1021xa-gpio.patch Go back to build_ls1021atwr folder to rebuild u-boot $ bitbake u-boot

Getting RCW image: Getting UEFI image:                              Getting PPA image: Getting Linux kernel and DTB, and Root FS images: - Download Image ,  fsl-ls1043a-uefi-rdb.dtb and fsl-image-core-ls1043ardb.ext2.gz . -  Copy Image and fsl-image-core-ls1043ardb.ext2.gz to the TFTP server directory. Getting GRUB2 image for AARCH64 and sample GRUB configuration: - Download grub image from this location . - Download sample grub configuration from here . Placing GRUB image on FAT formatted SD card: Install FAT32 file system on SD card - Use the DISKPART utililty on windows command prompt to format a SD card with FAT32 file system. Use the following snapshot for reference - Copy grubaa64.efi and ls1043a-grub.cfg to the SD card. Booting to UEFI prompt on LS1043a RDB Board: Boot to u-boot prompt from NOR flash bank 0 on LS1043a RDB.  Setup serial port connection on host machine, to capture logs from the target LS1043a RDB board.. Reset the board to boot u-boot on bank 0, assuming that there is a valid u-boot image flashed on the primary bank 0. Copy Images to NOR flash alternate bank using u-boot commands sete uefi 'tftp 80000000 LS1043ARDB_EFI.fd; erase 0x64400000 0x644FFFFF ; cp.b 80000000 0x64400000 $filesize' sete rcw 'tftp 80000000 rcw_uefi_1500.bin; erase 0x64000000 0x640FFFFF ; cp.b 80000000 0x64000000 $filesize' sete ppa 'tftp 80000000 ppa.itb; erase 0x64500000 0x645FFFFF ; cp.b 80000000 0x64500000 $filesize' sete dtb 'tftp 80000000 fsl-ls1043a-uefi-rdb.dtb; erase 0x65B00000 0x65BFFFFF; cp.b 80000000 65B00000 $filesize' run uefi run ppa run rcw run dtb Note: The host machine is assumed to be having tftp server running, with the relevant files in place. The rcw, uefi, dtb and ppa images can also be found at compass link shared above. Note: Make sure SD card is inserted into the SD card slot on the board. Reset RDB to boot from NOR flash bank 4 => cpld reset altbank You should get UEFI boot prompt, as shown in the image below. Enter 2 to load Shell. On the Shell prompt run the following commands Shell> FS0:   Shell> ls You should see a list of the grub executable and configurations files present on SD card. Booting Linux via PXE on LS1043a RDB: Note: atftpd or tftpd-hpa, is required as tftp server for PXE boot to work. tftpd is not supported.  Load grub by entering the name of the grub executable. Shell> grubaa64.efi On the grub prompt, setup the server and client IPs for TFTP transfer. grub> set net_default_server=<server_ip> grub> net_add_addr eno0 efinet0 <client_ip> Load the grub configuration. grub> configfile (hd3,msdos1)/ls1043a-grub.cfg Grub menu is listed. Choose the entry for liinux boot. See the snapshot below for reference. Linux boot should start in around 7-8 minutes. Data transfer speed is around 100 KB/s.

This document introduces a method to separate control plane and data plane between GPP(ARM) and AIOP based on different L4 protocols implemented in the AIOP software. So far, in the current MC version, this scenario could not be implemented from WRIOP using DPDMUX, so it is a good choice for users to separate the traffic in AIOP.   1. Basic Concept of DPAA2 Objects   2. AIOP Application to Implement Control in ARM and Data Plane in AIOP   3. Build AIOP Application Project with CodeWarrior   4. Running AIOP Application Program on LS2085ARDB
