iMX8QM-MEK UART from SCFW

I have made nominal changes to the SCFW and would like to have some debug output to the terminal. I need to use the same USB-to-Serial port which is used by U-Boot and Linux for their terminals ("USB Debug", J18, /dev/ttyUSB0).

I have built the SCFW with various debug / UART settings, but whatever I do, I do not get any output from the SCFW on the terminal. The first things I see on the terminal are from U-Boot.

Without any changes to the SCFW source code, I build like this:

$ make qm R=B0 B=myboard D=1 DL=3 U=0 M=1

and have experimented with other DL, U, M settings.

Ideally, I would like to still have the U-Boot and Linux terminals working on the USB Debug terminal as well, but I'm not sure if that is possible.

Thank you very much!

Hi Stuart

general way to build SCFW with enabled Debug Monitor is described on

System Controller Firmware 101 - Resource management service 

However depending on SCFW version there may be differencies, for example

described in Chapter 4 attached SCFW Release Notes version v1.3.0 used with

 L4.14.98_2.3.0

Note SCFW version should be aligned with Linux version as described in

i.MX 8QuadMax Automotive and Infotainment Applications Processors  :
