Port A on the DSP56F80x

Started by Roger Flor October 7, 2002

Hello!

I am using a DSP56F805.

1. If I write data to a peripheral(say an LCD controller) using the external
data bus, will I be able to override the address bus and use some of the
multiplexed GPIO's(GPIOE2, GPIOE3, and GPIOA0 to GPIOA7)?

2. Upon exit from RESET, if I use operating mode MODE 0A by tying the
EXTBOOT pin to ground, will I be able to shift to operating mode MODE 0B
after booting up?

Thanks a lot.
Roger



1. Yes, any higher-order address lines that are not used by the external
peripheral and/or your address decoding can be used as GPIO inputs or outputs.
Just set the bits in the Peripheral Enable Register (PER) for the pins you want
to use, this is described in Chapter 7 "General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO)" in
the DSP56F80x User's Manual.

2. Yes, you can set the BOOTMAP_B bit (Bit 4) in the System Control Register
(SYS_CNTL), this is described in Section 16.7.1 "System Control Register
(SYS_CNTL)" in the DSP56F80x User's Manual.
