i.MX53 & i.MX6 Reference Manual Spelling Problems

The i.MX53 Application Processor Reference Manual still has a large number of obvious errors in it.

I'll list some of the technical problems I've found in another post, but the high number of spelling errors in these manuals don't inspire confidence in ANY of the content.

They can't have ever had a spelling checker run over them given the number I was able to get a checker to find in 5 minutes.

All I had to do was to export from Acrobat to a Text File, and then filter out all the lower case words with a simple shell command like:

cat iMX53RM_V2_1.txt | tr ' ' '\n' | tr -d ";:=,.()\"" | sort | uniq | grep -v [A-Z0-9_] > imx53rm.txt

Running "enchant -l" over that found the following obvious ones (and others I haven't listed):

ablity

acces

accorind

accruate

addressible

applcation

artifacts

availabe

blaocks

cannnot

choosen

clompete

commnand

commund

complition

contoller

controler

enbables

extermal

gammar

higest

incudes

negedge

orginal

opttional

orverride

oscilator

oveloaded

overriden

paragrah

paramemters

paramters

perihperal

priotiry

privides

proces

processer

programable

qulified

recieved

regitsers

regitsters

regsier

regsiter

regsiters

sephia

seqeunce

signifigant

sould

stoped

"CSU manges system sucurity alarms"

transciever

wether

wrutten

yeilds

I've done the same with the i.MX6DQ Application Processor Reference Manual, and more than half of the above are still in it, together with new ones, a few of which are:

accessess

accomodate

accroding

acesses

achives

answner

assertted

assretion

asynchrous

begining

bwlow

calaculated

calicration

capabilites

charater

condig

configration

configuarble

configuraable

conjucction

consumtion

...

tranmission

transcations

transciever

transfering

trasmition

trasmitting

trasnfer

treates

treshold

It is now THREE years later and here's a new version of the i.MX6DQ manual as of this month (September 2017). It is now at Revision 4, up from the "0.1" I checked before. Let's see how many of those spelling errors have been fixed in 4 revisions after the above "escalation".

accessess      Still there

accomodate     Still there [1]

accorind       Still there [1]

accroding      Fixed

acesses        Fixed

achives        Still there

answner        Still there [1]

assertted      Fixed

assretion      Fixed

asynchrous     Still there

begining       Fixed

bwlow          Still there [1]

calaculated    Fixed

calibaration   Still there

calicration    Fixed

cannnot        Still there

capabilites    Still there

charater       Still there [1]

condig         Still there

configration    Fixed

configuarble    Still there [1]

configuraable   Still there [1]

conjucction    Fixed, but "conjuction" is still there [1]

consumtion     Fixed

... Spelling errors starting with d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q (yes, even q), r, s, t, u, v ...

writting       Still there [1]

wrotten        Fixed

Less than half of the ones listed above have been fixed. They're some of the words selected from 1500 ones that "spell" didn't like out of the 9000 unique words in the 1.49 million word file. More than half of those are things like "andi" and "ahb", but that still leaves hundreds of real spelling errors.

The ones marked "[1]" above are also in the new IMX7D Reference manual (08.2016).
