no sound with SAI IMX7D as master, codec tlv320aic3104

Hi there,

I am trying to switch my codec configuration to set the SAI of my IMX7D as master as I want to multiplex several codecs with the same SAI, my codec is TI tlv320aic3104.

My Linux kernel version is iMX 4.14.

I've changed my configuration but can't hear sound when I run some tests with speaker-test.

Here is my config, any idea of what is wrong?

 

 

 

&sai2 {
	#sound-dai-cells = <1>;
	pinctrl-names = "default";
	pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_sai2 &pinctrl_codec_reset &pinctrl_audio_ctrl>;
	assigned-clocks = <&clks IMX7D_SAI2_ROOT_SRC>,
			  <&clks IMX7D_SAI2_ROOT_CLK>;
	assigned-clock-parents = <&clks IMX7D_PLL_AUDIO_POST_DIV>;
	assigned-clock-rates = <0>, <12288000>;
	fsl,sai-synchronous-rx;
	fsl,sai-mclk-direction-output;
	status = "okay";
};

 

 

 

 

 

	sound-codec {
		compatible = "simple-audio-card";
		status = "okay";
		simple-audio-card,name = "EG4-Sound-Card";
		simple-audio-card,format = "i2s";
		simple-audio-card,bitclock-master = <&dailink0_master>;
		simple-audio-card,frame-master = <&dailink0_master>;

		simple-audio-card,widgets =
			"Speaker", "Speaker",
			"Line", "LineOut",
			"Headphone", "Ambient",
			"Microphone", "SpeakerMic",
			"Microphone", "AmbientMic";
		simple-audio-card,routing =
			"Speaker", "LLOUT",
			"LineOut", "RLOUT",
			"Ambient", "HPLOUT",
			"LINE1L", "SpeakerMic",
			"LINE1R", "AmbientMic";

		dailink0_master: simple-audio-card,cpu {
			sound-dai = <&sai2 0>;
			system-clock-frequency = <12288000>;
		};

		simple-audio-card,codec {
			sound-dai = <&tlv320aic3104>;
			clocks = <&clks IMX7D_SAI2_ROOT_CLK>;
			system-clock-frequency = <12288000>;
		};
	};

 

 

 

 

 

		tlv320aic3104: tlv320aic3104@18 {
			#sound-dai-cells = <0>;
			compatible = "ti,tlv320aic3104";
			reg = <0x18>;
			gpio-reset = <&gpio2 10 0>;
			clocks = <&clks IMX7D_SAI2_ROOT_CLK>;
			clock-names = "mclk";
			assigned-clocks = <&clks IMX7D_PLL_AUDIO_POST_DIV>,
					  <&clks IMX7D_AUDIO_MCLK_ROOT_DIV>;
			assigned-clock-rates = <884736000>,
			       		       <12288000>;

			AVDD-supply = <&avdd>;
			DRVDD-supply = <&avdd>;
			IOVDD-supply = <&iovdd>;
			DVDD-supply = <&dvdd>;
		};

 

 

 

 

 

		pinctrl_sai2: sai2grp {
			fsl,pins = <
				MX7D_PAD_SAI1_MCLK__SAI2_MCLK	0x04
				MX7D_PAD_SAI2_TX_BCLK__SAI2_TX_BCLK	0x1c
				MX7D_PAD_SAI2_TX_SYNC__SAI2_TX_SYNC	0x1c
				MX7D_PAD_SAI2_TX_DATA__SAI2_TX_DATA0	0x04
				MX7D_PAD_SAI2_RX_DATA__SAI2_RX_DATA0	0x1c
			>;
		};

 

 

 

 

 

Many thanks,

I finally found the answer to my question, it seems that there is an issue on iMX7D SoC as mentioned on this document  https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/errata/IMX7DS_3N09P.pdf page 14.

ERR011096: SAI: Internal bit clock is not generated when RCR2[BCI]=1 or TCR2[BCI]=1
Description
When the SAI transmitter or receiver is configured for internal bit clock with BCI = 1, the bit clock is not generated for either of the
following two configurations:
a) SYNC = 00 and BCS = 0
b) SYNC = 01 and BCS = 1
Workaround
When the SAI transmitter or receiver is configured for internal bit clock with BCI=1, use only one of the following two configurations:
a) SYNC = 01 and BCS = 0
b) SYNC = 00 and BCS = 1

The solution to set the SAI as master is to create a kind of mix between a master/slave configuration, this probably requires a workaround from an HW point of view.

It seems also that the classic GPIOs have to be redirected because of that issue, here is an example between my configuration and another one from Variscite of what it could look like :

I voluntarily switched to SAI1

 

&sai1 {
	#sound-dai-cells = <1>;
	pinctrl-names = "default";
	pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_sai1 &pinctrl_sai1_mclk>;
	assigned-clocks = <&clks IMX7D_SAI1_ROOT_SRC>,
			  <&clks IMX7D_SAI1_ROOT_CLK>;
	assigned-clock-parents = <&clks IMX7D_PLL_AUDIO_POST_DIV>;
	assigned-clock-rates = <0>, <36864000>;
	status = "okay";
};

&clks {
	assigned-clocks = <&clks IMX7D_PLL_AUDIO_POST_DIV>;
	assigned-clock-rates = <884736000>;
};
	sound-codec {
		compatible = "simple-audio-card";
		status = "okay";
		simple-audio-card,name = "EG4-Sound-Card";
		simple-audio-card,widgets =
			"Speaker", "Speaker",
			"Line", "LineOut",
			"Headphone", "Ambient",
			"Microphone", "SpeakerMic",
			"Microphone", "AmbientMic";
		simple-audio-card,routing =
			"Speaker", "LLOUT",
			"LineOut", "RLOUT",
			"Ambient", "HPLOUT",
			"LINE1L", "SpeakerMic",
			"LINE1R", "AmbientMic";
		simple-audio-card,format = "i2s";
		simple-audio-card,bitclock-master = <&dailink0_master>;
		simple-audio-card,frame-master = <&dailink0_master>;

		/*simple-audio-card,bitclock-inversion;*/
		assigned-clocks = <&clks IMX7D_AUDIO_MCLK_ROOT_SRC>,
				  <&clks IMX7D_AUDIO_MCLK_ROOT_CLK>;
		assigned-clock-parents = <&clks IMX7D_PLL_AUDIO_POST_DIV>;
		assigned-clock-rates = <0>, <12288000>;

		dailink0_master: simple-audio-card,cpu {
			sound-dai = <&sai1 0>;
		};

		simple-audio-card,codec {
			sound-dai = <&tlv320aic3104>;
			system-clock-frequency = <12288000>;
		};
	};
		tlv320aic3104: tlv320aic3104@18 {
			#sound-dai-cells = <0>;
			compatible = "ti,tlv320aic3104";
			reg = <0x18>;
			gpio-reset = <&gpio2 10 0>;
			clocks = <&clks IMX7D_AUDIO_MCLK_ROOT_CLK>;
			clock-names = "mclk";

			AVDD-supply = <&avdd>;
			DRVDD-supply = <&avdd>;
			IOVDD-supply = <&dvdd>;
			DVDD-supply = <&dvdd>;
		};

 

GPIOs configuration to be tested and confirmed but the classic SAI outputs can't be used in that case and must be redirected to LPSR GPIOs:

 

		pinctrl_sai1: sai1grp {
			fsl,pins = <
				MX7D_PAD_ENET1_RX_CLK__SAI1_TX_BCLK	0x1f
				MX7D_PAD_ENET1_CRS__SAI1_TX_SYNC	0x1f
				MX7D_PAD_ENET1_COL__SAI1_TX_DATA0	0x30
				MX7D_PAD_ENET1_TX_CLK__SAI1_RX_DATA0	0x1f
			>;
		};

		pinctrl_sai1_mclk: sai1grp_mclk {
			fsl,pins = <
				MX7D_PAD_LPSR_GPIO1_IO01__SAI1_MCLK		0x1f
			>;
		};

Hello,

Are you able to hear something using an audio file.

If speaker test works, the sound card should be able to reproduce audio.

Best regards.

Hi Jorge,

When the codec is master, yes, I can. But if it's the SAI as master, then I can't hear any sound.

Got it.

Is the MPU providing the clock signal?

Did you check signals from the MPU to the codec?

Best regards.

Hi Jorge,

I don't have an oscilloscope, but this is the next step.

I don't see another option to debug that issue, I will let you know.

Hi Jorge here are the clocks and something goes wrong:

Hello,

Yes, you should have something like this:

Jorge7u7_0-1691619953435.png

I suggest you check the reference device tree for i.MX7D or the reference device tree for i.MX8MM that also uses "simple-audio-card".

Best regards.

Hello, I hope you are doing well.

You said, "I've changed my configuration but can't hear sound when I run some tests with speaker-test", did you was able to hear sound from the codec with a previous configuration?

I suggest you take a look at Chapter 16 Porting Audio Codecs i.MX Porting Guide.

Best regards.

Hi Jorge,

Yes, I did, with the same i2s and i2c configuration and the codec as master, I can hear sound, here are more logs :
