Has anyone used an FTDI 2232 based JTAG probe on an IMX28?

Hello all,

 

I'm looking for an inexpensive JTAG probe that will work with the IMX28EVK and boards based on it under the OpenOCD tool. I have a Segger J-Link probe inherited from another project, but it seems unable to halt the processor on my IMX28EVK. I'd prefer to buy one that's known to work.

Thanks in advance,

 

Mike

Hi James,

Yes, please start a new group for openocd. I know of at least on mx51 board (efikamx.cfg) that is currently supported in Openocd. Haven't seen any mx53 based board supported yet, but maybe this can be a good starting point, since mx51 is also CortexA8.

Will let you know as soon as I get a RealView script for mx53qsb.

Thanks,

Fabio Estevam

Hi Fabio,

Patches are submitted to the git host and are under review. I hope you don't mind, I included your name in the imx28evk.cfg file seeing that you supplied the RealView script. I would love to get my imx53qsb supported. What I might suggest is that we start a new group for support of openocd. Your thoughts?

As for the mx53qsb. I have already tried plugging it in to the JTAG connector on the side. But no joy, it was complaining about the auto probe function and not seeing anything. I am going to dig a little deeper, it might be a difference in the arm9 vs cortex-A8 core..... I would love to get the RealView file from you and start the support.

Thanks,

James.

Hi James,

I would suggest you to post two patches at the openocd mailing list: one for adding the mx28.cfg and another one for adding the mx28evk.cfg. It is a good idea to use git send-email for submitting patches to such mailing lists.

Yes, I am interested in getting mx53qsb board also supported in OpenOCD. Would you like me to send you a RealView ICE script so that you can convert it to the OpenOCD format? There is a imx53.cfg file in openocd already, so only the mx53qsb.cfg is missing.

Thanks for your support! Really appreciated.

Regards,

Fabio Estevam

I was planning on submitting the changes. Do you know who I should contact over at OpenOCD. I have posted to the forum, but no answer. I will check the site again.

On a side group note. I have a i.mx53QSB kit. Do you know if that needs support also?

Thanks,

James

Ok, got it working now and I see U-boot in the console ;-)

I had to specify the whole path for the u-boot binary.

Are you going to submit imx28.cfg and imx28evk.cfg to OpenOCD?

If you don't have time to do this, please let me know and I would be glad to submit it and adding you in the Signed-off-by of the patches.

Thanks, James!

Hi James,

Ok, I managed to adapt your opeoncd.cfg to make use of signalyzer.cfg instead and now I was able to proceed.

Now I enter into U-boot directory (where u-boot file is located) and then I do:

$ telnet localhost 4444
Trying ::1...
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Open On-Chip Debugger
> imx28evk_init

RCLK not supported - fallback to 1000 kHz
> load_image u-boot

Any suggestion as to why load_image is failing?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Fabio,

I put my imx28evk in JTAG mode.

  1. I started Openocd.
  2.  "telnet localhost 4444"
  3.  I issued a "imx28evk_init"
  4.  I did a "load_image u-boot".
  5.  I did a "resume 0x41008000"

 and to my surprise, U-boot was booting the the serial.... ;-)

I then loaded DDD via apt-get and then did the following.

  1. Power cycled the imx28evk.
  2. I started OpenOCD
  3. Started DDD with "ddd --debugger /opt/freescale/usr/local/gcc-4.4.4-glibc-2.11.1-multilib-1.0/arm-fsl-linux-gnueabi/bin/arm-fsl-linux-gnueabi-gdb"
  4. in the gdb window of DDD I did  "target remote localhost:3333"
  5. In a new terminal window I "telnet localhost 4444"
  6. Did a "load_image u-boot"
  7. Did a "step 0x41008000"
  8. Went back to DDD and did a "File->Open Program" and selected u-boot.
  9. I can hit "F5" and step the program or "continue" in the gdb window and run it.
  10. I hit "F5" and it goes back to single step and I can step the code....

So it looks like it is working.....

James.

Hi James,

Looks good at first sight! Are you able to download any code (U-boot for example) and do single stepping?

FYI, I have sent mx28evk support in mainline U-boot, in case you want to try it.

Please submit mx28evk support to OpenOCD if you have a chance, so that other folks with experience on the project could review it.

I will try to setup OpenOCD here and duplicate your settings.

Thanks a lot!

Ok,

Here is my attempt for a first shot....

I did a the following for building openocd with the latest on m 10.04 LTS system.

  1. "sudo apt-get remove openocd" to remove my current openocd.
  2. "sudo apt-get install libftdi-dev" loaded the libftdi development files.
  3. "git clone git://openocd.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/openocd/openocd" to get the latest openocd.
  4. "cd openocd"
  5. "./bootstrap"
  6. "./configure  --prefix=/usr --enable-ft2232_libftdi"
  7. "make"
  8. "sudo make install"
  9. "cd .."
  10. "openocd"

Attached are my openocd.cfg which I had in my home directory. imx28.cfg goes in "/usr/share/openocd/scripts/target". imx28evk.cfg goes in "/usr/share/openocd/scripts/board".

I was able to start openocd, then in another terminal I did a

/opt/freescale/usr/local/gcc-4.4.4-glibc-2.11.1-multilib-1.0/arm-fsl-linux-gnueabi/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gdb --eval-command="target remote localhost:3333" u-boot

It loaded without errors as far a I can tell, but I am not an expert.

Could you guys let me know if things look funky.....

Thanks,

James

Thank you!

The software guys at work used RealView with a Laterback. I have experence with the files, hopefully I should have something quick.

Will keep you posted.....

Hi James,

Below is the init script used on mx28evk with RealView ICE tool and I think it will be easy to convert it to OpenOCD syntax.

If you get some progress with mx28evk on OpenOCD, please let me know.

I have used OpenOCD several years ago with mx31/mx27pdk and now I would like to start using it again on the new boards.

Regards,

Fabio Estevam

Fabio,

I didn't think of doing that, great idea. I will also try to put together an imx28evk.cfg that would go under the board directory. This file should hold the gdb and system reset info.

I will also pull the latest OpenOCD and see what support they have in there already.

The problem I have is that I did this for a custom board based on the i.mx27. So it might take me a couple wacks at it. Does anyone have the reset code they are using with other JTAG devices. I plan on looking at the u-boot init code for this.

I.E from imx27inst.cfg

    # ========================================
    #  Configure DDR on CSD0 -- initial reset
    # ========================================
    mww 0xD8001010 0x00000008

    sleep 100

    # ========================================

Hi James,

Do you plan to submit the mx28 support into the OpenOCD project?

Thanks,

Hi Michael,

I just ran a quick test with the attached imx28.cfg file. It should go in /usr/share/openocd/scripts/target. I also included my openocd.cfg that I used to test the jtag.

I started openocd from a terminal session, and then telneted to localhost on port 4444. I was able to halt and resume the processor. I also did a scan_chain and got the following.

     TapName            | Enabled |   IdCode      Expected    IrLen IrCap  IrMask Instr     
---|--------------------|---------|------------|------------|------|------|------|---------

Hi Michael,

I just ran a quick test with the attached imx28.cfg file. It should go in /usr/share/openocd/scripts/target. I also included my openocd.cfg that I used to test the jtag.

I started openocd from a terminal session, and then telneted to localhost on port 4444. I was able to halt and resume the processor. I also did a scan_chain and got the following.

     TapName            | Enabled |   IdCode      Expected    IrLen IrCap  IrMask Instr

I'm in your debt, James. I've ordered the Olimex ARM-USB-OCD. Thanks again.

Michael,

Before you go out and get one. Let me hook mine up the my mx28evk and make sure I can get it working with the OpenOCD and the mx28evb. I have used Ubuntu to run the system and have stayed away from windows.

The thing we will need to configure is the CPU and target board. The other step will be the setup of the the internal registers on reset. I got mine from my co-workers for our mx27 board, But we should be able to get  help from the group here if we need them. 

I will try it tonight On my mx28evk  and mx53 Quick start and let you know,

James

I have used the Olimex ARM-USB-OCD on a custom i.MX27 and also the i.MX27ads board. I found that it was supported very well and I used it to get Barebox up and running RAM and then out of flash.

I found it cheep and also nice in the fact that it had a built in serial port.

Hope it helps....

Thanks, James. I had been considering either the Olimex or the Signalyzer JTAG probe. I'll probably go with Olimex given your report that it actually works.

Alas, I have no Segger J-Link, but I think, any JTAG tool, supporting ARM926 may be applied with i.MX28.
