Now, I used gpio_export to export the GPIO,but in console, it didnt show the gpio which I what? why?
And I want to know about the what is the definition of the gpiochip, how to use? what can I get from it and how to get in console?
Have you apply the configuration CONFIG_GPIO_SYSFS=y ?
you can read this for reference.
GPIO output value not changing.
Maybe from above info, I cant solve my problem. Now I export a LED gpio. And I cant use "echo 1 /sys/class/gpio/gpio50/value" to change the LED on/off. could you give another info?
1. First, do you enable the GPIO in SYSFS in kernel?
Device Drivers --->
--- GPIO Support
[*] /sys/class/gpio/... (sysfs interface)
2. I don't know which pin you want to export. Have you try to follow example in "GPIO output value not changing."?
Be sure that the pins you will try to use are really accessible as GPIO pins and were not requested by the kernel (gpio_request).
If pin was gpio_request'ed, you will need to gpio_export the same pin inside the kernel in order to have it accessible through SYSFS.
If pin is not set as GPIO by default, you will need to set IO MUX in the proper file inside <kernel>/arch/arm/mach-XXX.
Accessing GPIO in user space
After enabling GPIO-SYSFS feature, you can boot your device with the new kernel to make some tests.
First you need to export the GPIO you want to test to the user space:BUZZER GPIO(4,28) - (4-1)*32 + 28
echo 124 > /sys/class/gpio/export
XX shall be determined by the following algorithm:GPIOA_[B] is the GPIO you want to export, where "A" is the GPIO bank and "B" is the offset of the pin in the bank.
if the first available GPIO bank is 0 // (iMX.6, for example) XX = A*32 + B;else // first GPIO bank is 1 XX = (A-1)*32 + B;
After exporting a GPIO pin, you shall be able to see the GPIO interface exported to:/sys/class/gpio/gpio124
Through this interface, you are now able to do things like:# Reading the pin valuecat /sys/class/gpio/gpio124/value
# Changing pin directionecho in > /sys/class/gpio/gpio124/directionecho out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio124/direction
# Toggling GPIO output levelecho 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio124/valueecho 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio124/value
