TWR-LS1021A : U-boot console prompt not shown in LPUART mode

Hi All,

H/W: LS1021ATWR

SDK: v1.7

I have flashed the u-boot-ls1021atwr-lpuart.bin & rcw_1000_lpuart.bin to "BANK1" successfully ! But I am unable to get the u-boot console prompt since it is switching to HDMI by default, which shows u-boot console prompt on HDMI monitor rather than minicom. Even before setting video arguments ! Am I missing some thing ? Any hints are really appreciated.

LPUART U-boot from Bank1:

Hello srikanthkrishnakar,


Regarding the u-boot and RCW NOR Flash address.

First please switch to bank 0, then flash u-boot and RCW to alternate bank(bank 1) at bank 0.

Because the current bank u-boot treats the alternate bank u-boot and RCW at 0x63f80000 and 0x64000000.

Just remind you to flash image in the correct bank.


Have a great day,
Yiping

Hi Yiping,

I followed the below mentioned steps:

To write u-boot & rcw to bank1:


ð  tftp 81000000 u-boot_lpuart.bin

ð  tftp 82000000 rcw_1000_dcw.bin

ð  protect off all;erase 63f80000 63ffffff;cp.b 81000000 63f80000 80000

ð  protect off all;erase 64000000 6401ffff;cp.b 82000000 64000000 100



Switch Settings:


SW[3.5]: ON Bank1

SW[3.5]:OFF Bank0 ( default )


Switching between NOR/SD:

SW[2.1]: OFF , SW[2.3]: ON, SD-BOOT

SW[2.1]: ON , SW[2.3]: OFF, NOR-BOOT


Do these steps looks OK ?


Thanks for your support!

Hello srikanth krishnakar,


According your u-boot log, your u-boot is generated on Jan 30 2015, but it seems that your purpose is flashing the pre_built image rcw_1000_lpuart.bin and u-boot-ls1021atwr_lpuart.bin on bank 1, so I suspect you didn't flash images on the correct bank.


1. Please configure the switch setting to configure the target as Bank0(default).

2. At bank0, flash images to bank1

tftp 81000000 u-boot-ls1021atwr_lpuart.bin

tftp 82000000 rcw_1000_lpuart.bin

protect off all;erase 63f80000 63ffffff;cp.b 81000000 63f80000 80000

protect off all;erase 64000000 6401ffff;cp.b 82000000 64000000 100

If I didn't get your purpose clearly, please feel free to let me know.


Have a great day,
Yiping

Hello Yiping,

Yes I followed the steps mentioned by you. Being at "Bank0" (default), flashed the latest "lpuart" variant of images (u-boot & rcw) and u-boot console prompt is available only on Bank0. I would like to know what is the purpose of "rcw_1000_sdboot.bin" has to be written, if in-case I am booting from SDCARD ?

I already have written "u-boot-with-spl-pbl.bin" image  to SDCARD and able to see console prompt in SD_BOOT mode. But I am unable to identify that location where the "rcw_1000_sdboot.bin" should be written !!

Any pointers are really useful.

Quick note: Does the kernel have identical features and drivers supported in both NOR & SD Boot modes ? Or there are differences in features supported when we boot from SDCARD compared to NOR boot ?

Thanks in Advance!

Hello srikanth krishnakar,


Regarding your problem for LPUART boot from BANK 1, I have verified the prebuilt image on my target without any problem, please refer to my following steps.

1. Please check default switch setting.

LS1021A TWR X3

Switch 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

SW2 ON [1] OFF [0] OFF [0] OFF [0] ON [1] ON [1] ON [1] ON [1]

SW3 OFF ON ON OFF OFF OFF OFF ON

LS1021A TWR X2 Switch Setting

Switch 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

SW2 OFF [0] OFF [0] ON [1] OFF [0] OFF [0] ON [1] OFF [0] ON [1]

SW3 OFF ON ON OFF ON OFF OFF OFF

2. Boot the system from BANK 0, and flash lpuart image, I have attached for you, since I suspect there is problem with u-boot which you are using.

tftp 81000000 u-boot-ls1021atwr_lpuart.bin

tftp 82000000 rcw_1000_lpuart.bin

protect off all;erase 63f80000 63ffffff;cp.b 81000000 63f80000 80000

protect off all;erase 64000000 6401ffff;cp.b 82000000 64000000 100


3. Shorted the jumpers J19 & J20 to 1-2, and configure SW[3.5]: ON Bank1.


4. Power on the board, please refer to my log

u-boot-with-spl-pbl.bin already includes rcw for sdboot. rcw_1000_sdboot.bin is placed at the beginning of bin image. u-boot-with-spl-pbl.bin image includes rcw + pbi + uboot, so is a complete image for booting sd.


To create suck an image from the scratch refer to eSPI/SD/NAND Boot.

Hello srikanthkrishnakar,


In your description, you didn't mention the switch setting, have you already configure "J19 and J20 short 1-2"?


You could refer to "Hardware Setting for Special Purposes" section in SDK document for the details.


Have a great day,
Yiping

Hello Yiping,

I have shorted the jumpers J19 & J20 to 1-2 for LPUart functionality. If they are not shorted then I won't see any u-boot logs on minicom for u-boot from BANK1.

Thanks!
