Vybrid GPIO on /sys/class/gpio does not switch properly

I have a GPIO (PTE8 - Pin Nr. 113) exported via the /sys/class/gpio device tree and configured as OUTPUT direction.

From my C-Code I do the following


int fd = open ("/sys/class/gpio/gpio113/value", O_WRONLY);


while (1)
     write (fd, "1", 1);
     write (fd, "0", 1);


The problem is, that write() does not work every time. It seems as if the value is not written into the Port-Register of the processor. I did measurements with a scope directly on the processor pin and the value showed 1 after the second write statement in line 11, but it should be 0. In the same step I checked in shell with "cat /sys/class/gpio/gpio113/value" and here the value is also shown as 0. When I then typed "echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio113/value" in the shell the pin went to 0. I also tried to modify the driver strength in IOMUX to 25Ohm, 50Ohm and 150Ohm and explicitely set OBE to high, but the behaviour is the same - sometimes it work - sometimes not!


Do you have an advice for me?


Thanks in advance,
