Dear community,

    I am trying to read values from NVMEM from bash (ie: MAC address) using hexdump on i.MX6ULL running kernel 5.4.91.

 

root@colibri-imx6ull:~# hexdump -C /sys/devices/soc0/soc/2100000.aips-bus/21bc000.ocotp-ctrl/imx-ocotp0/nvmem

I guess to see the MAC address in the NVMEM, but there isn't.

 

Am I missing something?

Hi Stefano

sorry NXP does not program MAC addresses during chip production. It is resposibility of customer

to obtain those adresses and properly progam them:

Update

I run the latest nxp kernel on a imx6ull evk and here is the result:

    link/can 
6: can1: <NOARP,ECHO> mtu 16 qdisc noop state DOWN group default qlen 10
    link/can 

Here we have the two ethernet MAC address.

Since the kernel is the same my question is: why the NXP evk has the right information and the other module no? Who is the responsible that write the nvmem? I supposed that it was NXP that drive this process during the CHIP production.

 

Best regards,

Stefano.

Thank you for the answer @igorpadykov .

How about the hardware key written in NVMEM? Also that key should be written by customer or it is managed by NXP?

Our goal is to use that key to implement security feature on our product.

 

Best regards,

Stefano.

if you are speaking about OTPMK fuses, OTPMK fuses are programmed by NXP during the device manufacturing flow.

Yes @igorpadykov I mean the OTPMK fuses.

Hi Stefano

 

one can try with latest nxp linux Linux 5.10.9_1.0.0​ (as kernel 5.4.91 is not supported by nxp)

https://www.nxp.com/design/software/embedded-software/i-mx-software/embedded-linux-for-i-mx-applicat...

nvmem usage can be found on

https://www.digi.com/resources/documentation/digidocs/embedded/dey/3.0/cc6/bsp_r_otp_cc6cc6qp

Hi @igorpadykov , thank you for your reply.

Even if I use kernel 5.10.9 as you point in your previous comment I read the same values from the nvmem. I try to use the different hexdump format as suggested in the digi post, but nothing changes.

Where I can find more documentation about the data written in the nvmem? If I look in the dts I can't find anything that refers to the MAC:

   ocotp: ocotp-ctrl@21bc000 {
    #address-cells = <1>;
    #size-cells = <1>;
    compatible = "fsl,imx6ul-ocotp", "syscon";
    reg = <0x021bc000 0x4000>;
    clocks = <&clks 165>;

    tempmon_calib: calib@38 {
     reg = <0x38 4>;
    };

    tempmon_temp_grade: temp-grade@20 {
     reg = <0x20 4>;
    };

    cpu_speed_grade: speed-grade@10 {
     reg = <0x10 4>;
    };
   };

Do I need to add MAC mapping here in dtb?

 

Best regards,

Stefano.
