CE2 access

Started by Adam Watkins November 28, 2002
Hi all,

I am using the daughtercard interface of the C6711 DSK to perform some data
input.

When I reset the daughtercard I see that the external memory space (CE2)
from address 0xA000000 holds random data. Without having my capture board
connected to the daughtercard interface I can verify this data using a logic
analyser.

I would like to clear this data in software before proceeding with data
capture when I have my capture board attached.

I can modify the contents of (the non-existent) memory location 0xA0000000
using the usual memory window techniques, but not through code such as;

#define CE2_Space
*(int *)CE2_Space = 0x0;

Anyone see what I am doing wrong?

Many thanks,

Adam Watkins



Adam-

Just a quick thought: did you try "volatile" keyword? The compiler might
optimize
out your write if it sees that you never read the data back. Smart compiler.

Hi Jeff,

thanks for the response;

I recoded to

*(unsigned int*)0xa0000000 = 0x00000000;
The listing shows this as the generated code;

018000F8 ZERO .L1 A3 ; |39|
01D00069 MVKH .S1 0xa0000000,A3 ; |39|
000000F8 || ZERO .L1 A0 ; |39|
000C0274 STW .D1T1 A0,*A3 ; |39|

And it still isn't working!

Address space CE2 is configured in my dskinit.gel file as;
*(int *)EMIF_CE2 = 0x00000023;

I'm wondering if this is a silicon thing to do with the bus
transeivers.....

Cheers,

Adam

There really is a "volatile" keyword; I'm not kidding. Try:

*((volatile int*)0xa0000000) = 0;

But your asm. source looks like it should work; if so, then it's likely a memory
config problem.

Sorry Jeff,

I seem to have an inablitily to type at the moment. My source code is
indeed :

*(volatile int*)0xA0000000 = 0x00000000;

in mixed mode it is viewed as;

018000F8 ZERO .L1 A3 ; |39|
01D00069 MVKH .S1 0xa0000000,A3 ; |39|
000000F8 || ZERO .L1 A0 ; |39|
000C0274 STW .D1T1 A0,*A3 ; |39|

I also tried
*(unsigned volatile int*)

No luck there either. Wierd eh?
Additionally; the 3 little LEDs that do their little binary count due to the
P.O.S.T. have their outputs reflected in the CE2/CE3 address space.

many thanks,

Adam

Adam:

Sorry if I'm being intrusive, but what are the values that you're
setting for the EMIF Global control register (0x01800000) and
EMIF SDRAM control register (0x01800018)? I'm venturing a guess
that this is SDRAM occupying CE2 (?). It may well be that this
has aleady been looked at, so please ignore..

I'm not familiar with the daughtercard interface for the 6711 DSK,
but we are working on a 6711 board at our place, with Micron SDRAM
occupying CE2. It is working, although it was a bit of work
selecting what values to use for the appropriate SDRAM part.

Just my two cents...
