Hello, All


Our custom board is designed the DDR parts with the mx6sabreauto RDK board.

It could get the RDK schematic from .


The plan is as follow :

Our board is not ready and the first one will use 1GB  - If it needs more, will use 2GB.

Use 1GB DDR - 256M x 16 x 2ea - Bus Width 32bits

Use 2GB DDR - 256M x 16 x 4ea - Bus Width 64bits (like RDK)


Each DDR parts are connected to imx6dl AP as follow: (the same schematic of MX6 SABREAUTO RDK)

U3 : CS0, SDCLK1, D0-D15

U5 : CS0, SDCLK1, D16-D31

U2 : CS0, SDCLK0, D32-D47

U4 : CS0, SDCLK0, D48-D61


I wonder that is it work to use only U3 and U5 ?

I checked about the DDR3 register programming from

There are to select the chip select and the bus-width in this excel file.

And - the document doesn't comment anything about my case.


Could you help that it is possible only use U3, U5 or U2, U4 parts for 1GB ?

If it is possible, where should I modify in uboot/kernel ? I checked mx6dl.cfg and configuration excel files, but I was not found.
