I am considering using the UART of UCC1 in the QUICC engine instead of the DUART controllers on the T1024. I need a UART that can automatically populate RX buffers with no processor (PowerPC core) intervention. This is a requirement of our end user.
My first question is where do I get a copy of the QUICC microcode? I have the Freescale SDK for the T1024RDB dev board. I do not see the QUICC microcode. However I do see the FMAN microcode.
My last question is whether the QUICC engine is recommended to be used. I tried to look for u-boot support and noticed there is little support. I also spoke to a representative of a real-time OS and was told that they don't recommend using the QUICC engine. At that time, I didn't ask why (I should of).
