u-boot on custom T1024 board

Hi,

 

We have developed a custom board base on the T1024. The CPU boots from an SPI memory, the SPI is programmed with the following binaries :

  • u-boot 2016.09 binary @ offset 0x000000 of the SPI flash
  • fsl_fman_ucode_t1024_r1.0_106_4_18 binary @ offset 0x1100000 of the SPI flash
  • iram_Type_A_T1024_r1.0.bin binary @ offset 0x130000 of the SPI flash.

The RAM memory is soldered on the board, it is DDR3L (MT41K256M16) chip. We have implemented 4 chip to have 2GB of memory. Since we did not implement any SPD eeprom I have put a static configuration in board/freescale/t102xrdb/ddr.c and I have update the include/configs/T102xRDB.h with CONFIG_SYS_DDR_RAW_TIMING in order for the static configuration to be taken into account.

 

The RCW has the following value:

0810000a 00000000 00000000 00000000

2d000002 00008112 58115000 21000000

00000000 00000000 00000000 00035000

00000000 49260a08 00000000 00000006

 

On the IFC we have 2 components, a NAND flash used as mass storage for the Linux os and an FPGA for custom logic implementation.

 

When starting the CPU correctly loads the RCW and starts the first stage boot loader. Then the second stage boot loader is loaded into RAM. U-boot crashes when the second stage. Here under is the traces of the crash :

### ERROR ### Please RESET the board ###

 

I have two questions : 

- How can I analysed the above stack trace in order to know where the problem could be ?

- Since we do not have any NOR memory on our board how can remove it from t1024rdb sources code ?

 

Thanks in advance,
