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

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
