i.MX6UL GPIO Pad Configuration & OpenOCD Signal Issues

Contributor I

I am attempting to use an IMX6UL as a JTAG interface utilizing OpenOCD's native bitbang support for the IMX's GPIO.

I have successfully connected to the target at lower speeds such as 100KHz. However, to successfully perform flash functions, I need to set the adapter to speed to at least 500KHz, preferably closer to 1500KHz, and have not yet been able to connect to the target at these higher speeds. I have tried a host of GPIO Pad Control Configurations to optimize the signal output but have yet to find one that can properly handle these high speeds.

Therefore, I have the following two questions:

  1. What is the best possible GPIO pad configuration to reach these high speeds?
  2. Is it possible to toggle the GPIO registers using the IMX6UL at these higher speeds(500KHz,1500KHz,etc)?

Which pad are you using?

For example: You could check the pad control setting in the RM.



You could try to set the speed and the SRE of the PAD.
