Hi,

I have been messing with a bunch of the kernel parameters for the iMX8MQ and I was curious as to how to generate values for the HDMI TX table in the kernel->drivers->GPU->DRM->iMX->HDP folder because I need a rather specific timing generated for a nonstandard HDMI input. I am looking to generate a PIX-CLK frequency of 204_800KHz.

(Note underscores are to keep track of decimal places and these are rewritten from impossible to read table data to something human-readable)

I guessed at a few values for the table as follows:

TABLE 8 Entry {
T8_PIXEL_CLK_FREQ_KHZ : 204_800,
T8_FEEDBACK_FACTOR : 1_000,
T8_DATA_RANGE_MBPS : 2_048_000,
T8_CMNDA_PLL0_IP_DIV : 0x03,
T8_CMN_REF_CLK_DIG_DIV : 0x01,
T8_REF_CLK_DIVIDER_SCALER : 0x01,
T8_PLL_FB_DIV_TOTAL : 220, ?
T8_CMNDA_PLL0_FB_DIV_LOW : 0x0AC,
T8_CMNDA_PLL0_FB_DIV_HIGH : 0x02C,
T8_PIXEL_DIV_TOTAL : 10,
T8_CMNDA_PLL0_PXDIV_LOW : 0x03,
T8_CMNDA_PLL0_PXDIV_HIGH : 0x03,
T8_VCO_FREQ_KHZ : 2_048_000,
T8_VCO_RING_SELECT : 0,
T8_CMNDA_HS_CLK_0_SEL : 1,
T8_CMNDA_HS_CLK_1_SEL : 1,
T8_HSCLK_DIV_AT_XCVR : 2,
T8_HSCLK_DIV_TX_SUB_RATE : 1,
T8_TX_CLK_KHZ : 1_024_000,
T8_CMNDA_PLL0_HS_SYM_DIV_SEL : 0x0,
T8_CMNDA_PLL0_CLK_FREQ_KHZ : 204_000,
T8_PIXEL_CLK_OUTPUT_ENABLE : 1,
T28HPC_HDMITX_CLOCK_CONTROL_TABLE_COLS_PIXEL_OUT
}

 &

TABLE9 Entry {
T9_VCO_FREQ_BIN : 25,
T9_PLL_VCO_FREQ_KHZ_MIN : 3060000,
T9_PLL_VCO_FREQ_KHZ_MAX : 3060000,
T9_VOLTAGE_TO_CURRENT_COARSE : 0x6,
T9_VOLTAGE_TO_CURRENT : 0x3,
T9_NDAC_CTRL : 0x1,
T9_PMOS_CTRL : 0x1,
T9_PTAT_NDAC_CTRL : 0x00,
T9_PLL_FEEDBACK_DIV_TOTAL : 0x07, ?
T9_CHARGE_PUMP_GAIN : 570,
T9_COARSE_CODE : 0x4C,
T9_V2I_CODE : 6,
T9_VCO_CAL_CODE : 225,
}

Any suggestions? Or is there a way I can talk with an application engineer?

I figured I'd give the forum a try before giving up on the iMX8 platform which we have spent several thousand on and move over to a platform that supports custom HDMI output readily.

Sincerely,

Simon

Hello Simon ,

Please see suggestions below, which comes from i.MX Expert.

----------------------------------------

The default BSP only supports standard HDMI clocks, but we can also add some more clocks.

It needs use HDMI - pixel clock calculation tools to generate the timing parameters.

you need calculate and fill the parameters in "Inputs" page of HDMI - pixel clock calculation.xlsx, if the parameters are avaliable, it will generate a new VCO item on t28hpc_hdmitx_pll_tuning_table_pixel_out.( drivers\gpu\drm\imx\hdp\API_AFE_t28hpc_hdmitx.c)

01.jpg

For example, assume pixel clock is 137.5Mhz.

{137520, 1000, 1374750, 0x03, 0x1, 0x1,  611, 0x1E5, 0x07A,  40, 0x012, 0x012, 5499000, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2,  687375, 0x2, 137475, 1},

------------------------------------------------------

I will send the tool to your email.

Hope above information is helpful for you.

Have a nice day!

B.R,

Weidong

I managed to get a copy of the sheet. See attached. No idea if its still valid. My guess is that this is only relevant to the IMX8MQ since it references the 27 mhz reference clock instead of the 24mhz one used for the IMX8QM

I'm trying to troubleshoot support for an LCD screen and would like to see if this spreadsheet can help me add a custom timing. Can you share this file with me? (Im assuming its still relevant?)

Hi,

   I also has this issue when I need  to customize the non-standard HDMI resolution. Could you pls email me a  HDMI - pixel clock calculation tool.

Best regards!

    Hi,Kernel version I use is 5.4.3 and only this version can be used。i get structure's parameter(struct hdmi_ctrl) by HDMI - pixel clock calculation.xlsx。but another structure's parameter(struct hdmi_pll_tuning) need add.

struct hdmi_ctrl {
u32 pixel_clk_freq_min;
u32 pixel_clk_freq_max;
u32 feedback_factor;
u32 data_range_kbps_min;
u32 data_range_kbps_max;

};

struct hdmi_pll_tuning {

};

in file:drivers/gpu/drm/imx/cdn-mhdp-hdmi-phy.c

i need hlp.

I am also needing to support an LCD that has nonstandard timing requirements.

Could I also have a link to the tool?

BTW,  I was reviewing the mentioned c/h files (API_AFE_t28hpc_hdmitx.[ch]) and I do not see a table called t28hpc_hdmitx_pll_tuning_table_pixel_out.  Nor do I see entries similar to the one mentioned. 

I am guessing I may have a different version of source.  I pulled code from imx-android-10.0.0_2.5.0.zip.

Hello, Weidong

Now I am using imx-8mq EVK.
I also need to set hdmi clock for custom resolution.

I searched here for the solution Finally, I found your answer here.
So, I would like to ask for HDMI - pixel clock calculation.

 Could you send the tool for me?

Thanks,
JM.

Would you pleae provide HDMI - pixel clock calculation  file?  The link has been invalid. Thanks.
