How to monitor I2C traffic on i.MX6 SabreSD?

For example I just want to see if there is any activity on specific i2c bus (channel?). I dont have any additional equipment, analyzers, oscilloscope, I just want to log activity on i2c after my touch panel stops reacting. Is there a way to do this?

Also, how to find i2c base address?

Hi Petar

one can try All Boards I2C-tools

however seems, using oscilloscope or analyzer is most preferable option.

i2c base address can be found in documentation.

Best regards

igor

Thank you for your reply.

These tools are handy, but it doesnt look like they could monitor the actual ongoing traffic on a bus. Unless subsequent dumping of registers would show that something is going on?

I was browsing all imx docs I could find for this base address but couldn't find it. If you can tell me more specific where to look for?

Edit: I just found this doc file https://community.freescale.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/475517-286795/i.MX_6_Linux_Reference_Ma...

And I followed memory map chapter to this source code in kernel (grep i2c):

./mx6.h:#define MX6Q_I2C1_BASE_ADDR (AIPS2_OFF_BASE_ADDR + 0x20000)

./mx6.h:#define MX6Q_I2C2_BASE_ADDR (AIPS2_OFF_BASE_ADDR + 0x24000)

./mx6.h:#define MX6Q_I2C3_BASE_ADDR (AIPS2_OFF_BASE_ADDR + 0x28000)

./mx6.h:#define MX6SL_I2C4_BASE_ADDR (AIPS2_OFF_BASE_ADDR + 0x78000)

./mx6.h:#define MX6DL_I2C4_BASE_ADDR (AIPS2_OFF_BASE_ADDR + 0x78000)

I guess these addresses are used by all sabresd boards?

Hi Petar

I am not aware of such tools, regarding "base address",

which are you looking for ? If processor, then one needs

to check processor Reference Manual, usually this is

Chapter 2 Memory Maps, if i2c peripheral device - then

datasheet of that particular device.
