How to enable and access i2c bus 3 in kernel?

Hi all,

     I'm using LS2085A board. By default i2c bus 0 is selected , there we can able to read and write the register values.

     I need to read the register values from i2c bus 3.

     In u-boot i can able to read those registers. For selecting i2c bus 3 i used "i2c dev 3" command.

     But in kernel i can't able to select and read the i2c bus 3.I tried via accessing /dev/i2c-3 but i'm not getting.  I don't know how to select the bus 3.

     Can any one help me on this?

     Thanks in advance,

-Naveen

Hello naveennvn,

You could use i2c-tools package to do verification, please add "i2c-tools" in IMAGE_INSTALL variable of recipe meta-fsl-networking/image/fsl-image-core.bb and rebuild image with "bitbake fsl-image-kernelitb".

root@ls2085aqds:~# i2cdetect 3

WARNING! This program can confuse your I2C bus, cause data loss and worse!

I will probe file /dev/i2c-3.

I will probe address range 0x03-0x77.

Hi Yiping,

     Thanks for your response,

     Actually in my setup i had connected the some peripherals in i2c bus 3.

     In u-boot it shows properly :

          => i2c dev 3 

          Setting bus to 3

          => i2c probe

          Valid chip addresses: 00 4C 50

     But in kernel those slave addresses are not showing :

          root@ls2085aissd:~# i2cdetect -y 3

               0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  a  b  c  d  e  f

          00:          -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

          10: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

          20: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

          30: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

          40: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

          50: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

          60: 60 -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

          70: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- UU    

     Why those slave addresses are not showing on kernel ? How to enable in kernel ?

     Can you help me on this ?

Thanks,

-Naveen

Hello naveennvn,

Please check whether Kernel configuration contains the following.

CONFIG_I2C=y

CONFIG_I2C_BOARDINFO=y

CONFIG_I2C_COMPAT=y

CONFIG_I2C_CHARDEV=y

CONFIG_I2C_MUX=y

CONFIG_I2C_IMX=y

For the dts file, please enable fsl-ls2085a.dtsi and with i2cx node enabled.

If your problem remains, would you please also attach Kernel boot log.


Have a great day,
Yiping

Hi Yiping,

     Above kernel configurations all are already enabled and i2c node also enabled in fsl-ls2085a.dtsi file.

     Now also the problem remains same. I'm not able to access the i2c bus 3 in kernel.

     Is there any modifications in board files?

Here is the i2c related kernel log :
