Use of SSI/AUDMUX without a real codec

Contributor II

Hello everybody,

I am working on a QWKS-SCMIMX6DQ and I want to test SSI. I have followed what is written here:

[alsa-devel] Imx6 i2s master driver without i2c 

So I added a file to the kernel (attached) and modified the device tree. The most relevant part of the device tree is the end of the message, anyway attached there is the full file. I also disabled ecspi1 since shares some pins on the connector

It nearly works. I can see bit clock (AUD4_TXC), frame clock (AUD4_TXFS) but I do not see any data.

I added some printks to the kernel to see what is going on, below there is a sample. As you can see aplay terminates with an Input/Output error, it is aware of the fact that data did not passed through.

And finally to the key question: I am able to trace most things but I am missing how DMA enters into the game. Looks active but I do not know how (nor I added any info about it in the device tree - its is unclear to me how it could be done).

Hi Marco

one can try patch simple-card without codec for testing purpose

Best regards
