How to link code to DDR (start address 0x80000000) on Cortex M4 side in IMX7D

Hi

I have modified  "MCIMX7D_M4_ddr.ld " as follow

MEMORY
{
      m_interrupts (RX) : ORIGIN = 0x80000000, LENGTH = 0x00000240
      m_text (RX) : ORIGIN = 0x80000240, LENGTH = 0x0001FFFF 
      m_data (RW) : ORIGIN = 0x20210000, LENGTH = 0x00010000 
}

there is no error when I compile the code, but the process can not start up when I load the binary file to 0x80000000 on uboot. I load file as follow: 

tftp 0x80000000 example.bin;

dcache flush;

bootaux 0x80000000

M4 core starts up and i can see my starting printf  in M4 terminal

i did change imx7d-sdb.dts and imx7d-sdb-m4.dts 

Changed from 0x80000000  to 0x80100000  in both files

in imx7d-sdb.dts

memory {
reg = <0x80100000 0x80000000>;
};

in imx7d-sdb-m4.dts:

memory {
linux,usable-memory = <0x80100000 0x1ff00000>, 
<0xa0000000 0x1ff00000>;

But linux hangs here


** Unable to read file boot.scr **
reading zImage
6619128 bytes read in 326 ms (19.4 MiB/s)
Booting from mmc ...

Booting using the fdt blob at 0x83000000
Using Device Tree in place at 83000000, end 8300e566

Could anyone please what changes i have to do to USE starting of DDR for only M4 ? any disable linux access to that memory ? 

Thank you in advance

Hi Chandini,

IMX6SX provides also Cortex-M4 as IMX7D does. The following document will be useful:

http://www.nxp.com/docs/en/application-note/AN5127.pdf 

For further details please provide information details about how are you developing M4 application. What compiler are you using, which IDE, is it based on an example application?


Regards,
Carlos
