How to access to the top address of OCRAM for i.MX8QXP

Hello,

From RM (IMX8DQXPRM_Rev.0.pdf)

pastedImage_1.png

OCRAM is mapped to address of 0x100000 to 0x13FFFF.

But, I could not access to address range from 0x100000 to 0x117FFF by u-boot prompt.

Can we use all of OCRAM memory for user programming? or should we use OCRAM address start from 0x118000?

how do we enable OCRAM memory range 0x100000 to 0x117FFF when all OCRAM memory is available?

Here is my test log:

My test environment is

Hi Kazuma

first please look at

System Controller Firmware 101 - Resource management service 

SCFW Porting Kit

>could not access to address range from 0x100000 to 0x117FFF by u-boot prompt.

>Can we use all of OCRAM memory for user programming? or should we use OCRAM address start >from 0x118000?

memory from OCRAM address start to 0x118000 is allocated to ATF partition,

refer to #define OCRAM_ALIAS_SIZE 0x18000, OCRAM_BASE + OCRAM_ALIAS:

imx8qx_bl31_setup.c\imx8qx\imx\plat - imx-atf - i.MX ARM Trusted firmware 

platform_def.h\include\imx8qx\imx\plat - imx-atf - i.MX ARM Trusted firmware 

It is not recommended to use it as it is reserved for internal usage in nxp software.

Best regards
