How to change USB-TYPE-A prot to a peripheral or otg port?

Hi,

   As we know, the iMX6UL EVK has two otg port, and one designed as USB-TYPE-A HOST port, one designed Micro-USB-TYPEB peripheral port.

   Now i need two peripheral port in this board, could i change the  USB-TYPE-A HOST port to a peripheral or otg port?
    I try change the dts file to fix usbotg2 from host to otg, but it's not work.
    I ever used a other board with a dynamic config USB-TYPE-A port, it can work as Host or Peripheral by write a sys config in runtime.
    Could the iMX6UL Board implement this function?

Hi shi

please try to change usb mode using sect.39.2.6 Changing the Controller

Operation Mode attached Linux Manual.

Best regards

Hi igorpadykov,

I have try to change usb mode according to doc. And change "dr_mode" of usbotg1 and usbotg2 both to "otg".
For test, I load  gadget driver on  two otg ports, usbotg1 can work normal but usbotg2 can't work.

Then I config kernel debug_fs for otg debug, find some difference between usbotg1 and usbotg2 as follow(Not connect otg port with PC when output log).

usbotg1 debug log:

cat /sys/kernel/debug/ci_hdrc.0/otg

OTG state: b_idle

a_bus_drop: 0

a_bus_req: 0

a_srp_det: 0

a_vbus_vld: 0

b_conn: 0

adp_change: 0

power_up: 0

a_bus_resume: 0

a_bus_suspend: 1

a_conn: 0

b_bus_req: 0

b_bus_suspend: 0

b_se0_srp: 1

b_ssend_srp: 1

b_sess_vld: 0

b_srp_done: 1

drv_vbus: 0

loc_conn: 0

loc_sof: 0

adp_prb: 0

id: 1

protocol: 0

usbotg2 debug log:

cat /sys/kernel/debug/ci_hdrc.1/otg

OTG state: b_peripheral

a_bus_drop: 0

a_bus_req: 0

a_srp_det: 0

a_vbus_vld: 0

b_conn: 0

adp_change: 0

power_up: 0

a_bus_resume: 0

a_bus_suspend: 1

a_conn: 0

b_bus_req: 0

b_bus_suspend: 0

b_se0_srp: 0

b_ssend_srp: 0

b_sess_vld: 2048

b_srp_done: 0

drv_vbus: 0

loc_conn: 1

loc_sof: 0

adp_prb: 0

id: 1

protocol: 2

From the log, ​I guess the hardware status of usbotg2 is not right.

Then i check VBUS of usbotg2, and find it still located at high level(about 5V).This is not normal.

I doubt whether need to modify the hardware design of USB  to meet my requirement(two otg port can work on device mode).
Could you give me some suggestion?

Hi shi

for turning off VBUS of usbotg2 it is necessary to add modifications

in code for USB_OTG2_PWR, please check U1101 SPF-28616

on i.MX6UL EVK schematic

Schematics (1)

MCIMX6UL-EVK_DESIGNFILES

Design files, including hardware schematics, Gerbers, and OrCAD files. (REV 0)

Hi igorpadykov

Thank you, I have shared the idea with our hardware engineer.

Your comment----"it is necessary to add modifications in code for USB_OTG2_PWR", does it mean that i need to modify the linux source code at driver/usb/chipidea ?

On the other hand, I try to use GPIO control VBUS of USBOTG2 according to sect.39.2.10.2 VBUS Control attached Linux Manual.

Fisrtly, I fix dts and slect GPIO1_IO02 to control VBUS of USBOTG2.

Then I  boot the board with new dtb, but i get such error when try to change GPIO output value by GPIO SYSFS.

GPIO1_IO02,  the GPIO address should be   32 * (1 - 1) + 2 = 2

echo 2 > /sys/class/gpio/export

write error: Device or resource busy

I try the command "echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/export" and it's OK.

Why the GPIO1_IO02 can't export?  And is using GPIO to control VBUS  effective?

seems GPIO1_IO02 is already used as part of pinctrl_tsc: tscgrp :
