Add display support in u-boot

Hello,

I'm trying to add LCD support in u-boot for a custom IMX6 solo board. I have referred mx6sabresd & enabled the following configuration

 

CONFIG_DM_VIDEO=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_IPUV3=y
CONFIG_IMX_VIDEO_SKIP=y

 

Added panel information on board.c file

 

static void enable_lvds(struct display_info_t const *dev)
{
    enable_backlight();
}

struct display_info_t const displays[] = {{
.bus = -1,
.addr = 0,
.pixfmt = IPU_PIX_FMT_RGB666,
.detect = NULL,
.enable = enable_lvds,
.mode = {
.name = "EDT",
.refresh = 60,
.xres = 1024,
.yres = 600,
.pixclock = 15384,
.left_margin = 160,
.right_margin = 24,
.upper_margin = 29,
.lower_margin = 3,
.hsync_len = 136,
.vsync_len = 6,
.sync = FB_SYNC_EXT,
.vmode = FB_VMODE_NONINTERLACED
} } };
size_t display_count = ARRAY_SIZE(displays);

 

 

As mentioned in the document, set the panel environment variable 

 

setenv panel EDT
saveenv

 


I'm using the DTS file from Linux, where the display is already working

I see the "drivers/video/nxp/imx/mxc_ipuv3_fb.c" file is responsible for setting up a display framebuffer

In my case, only the ipuv3_video_bind() function is called & ipuv3_video_probe() probe function never gets called.  

 

static int ipuv3_video_bind(struct udevice *dev)
{
        struct video_uc_plat *plat = dev_get_uclass_plat(dev);

        plat->size = LCD_MAX_WIDTH * LCD_MAX_HEIGHT *
                     (1 << VIDEO_BPP32) / 8;

        return 0;
}

 


My question is under which condition ipuv3_video_probe() function get called? I know the probe function is only called when the device starts using it but I'm not sure how it work here

I'm able to probe the driver by setting stdout to 'vidconsole`, ipu driver will be probed when I actually start using the device

setenv stdout vidconsole

 

I'm also able to probe the driver from board.c file  by calling 

uclass_get_device(UCLASS_VIDEO, 0, &dev);

Hi @vishnu_motghare 

Can you check if  IPU driver has been compiled in Uboot build process?

Best Regards
