1866MHz LPDDR4 Porting Guide

BSP: L5.15.5_1.0.0
Platform: i.MX8MPlus EVK


1. Parameter preparation

For more parameter calculation, please refer to: https://community.nxp.com/t5/i-MX-Processors-Knowledge-Base/iMX-8M- Mini-Register-Programming-Aid-DR... 

For 1866MHz LPDDR4, we need a DRAM PLL size of 933MHz. The PLL dividing parameters are: m=622,p=16,s=0, k=0.


2. Calibration and stress test with DDR Tool

2.1 Creating a test script for 1866MHz

Here we copy the script from another file (e.g. 2000MHz) and modify the contents of the script.



2.2 Modify the script to adapt to 1866MHz



2.3 Download the test script

After selecting the ddr script we created, click on the download button



2.4 Calibrating the stress test

Set the core clock of the chip's cpu to 1.2GHz, then click the Calibration button to calibrate, then click Gen Code to generate the lpddr4_timing.c file. Set the start frequency to 1866MHz for the stress test.


2.5 Modify lpddr4_timing.c

We need to modify the generated lpddr4_timing.c file to change the maximum speed to 3732MTS.



3. SPL patch

After getting the correct lpddr4_timing.c file, the SPL code also needs to be modified to add support for the 933MHz DRAM PLL.
