Description

The MYD-IMX28X Development Board designed by MYIR is a cost-effective and power-efficient ARM Evaluation Kit (EVK) for Freescale i.MX28 family of multimedia applications processors which has an ARM926EJ-S Core, with speed up to 454 MHz. The board can support running Linux operating systems, which allows developers to use it as an i.MX28 reference platform to quickly start their own design. The board takes full features of the i.MX28 ARM processor and has exposed a comprehensive set of peripherals and connectivity options to make the board suitable for smart gateways, human-machine interfaces (HMIs), handheld devices, scanners, portable medical, experimental education and more other industrial applications.


The MYD-IMX28X Development Board is using the MYC-IMX28X CPU module as the heart of the system which is an ARM9-based system-on-module (SOM) integrated with the i.MX28 processor, 128MB DDR2 SDRAM, 256MB Nand Flash and Ethernet PHY. It is connected to the base board through two 1.27mm pitch 80-pin connectors. The base board has extended many peripherals and interfaces through headers and connectors, featuring 1 x RS232, 1 x Debug, 2 x USB ports, up to 2 x Ethernet, 2 x CAN, 1 x RS485, TF, Audio, LCD, JTAG, etc.




MYIR offers the board with Freescale i.MX283 or i.MX287 ARM9 CPU by default; user can integrate a different MYC-IMX28X CPU module on the same base board, thus making two variants of i.MX28 evaluation boards.

MYD-IMX283 Development Board – with MYC-IMX283 CPU Module for Freescale i.MX283

MYD-IMX287 Development Board – with MYC-IMX287 CPU Module for Freescale i.MX287


The MYD-IMX283 and MYD-IMX287 boards only have a few differences as described in below table:

1. Ltib fsl-alsa-plugins compile errors (L2.6.35_1.1.0_130130_source), Audio

Question:
Hi All, I am using imx28 platform with BSP L2.6.35_1.1.0_130130, when I used mplay to play an mp3 file, I can't hear any voice from headphone, and got the following message:
Playing Halo.mp3.
Audio file file format detected.
====================================================
Opening audio decoder: [mp3lib] MPEG layer-2, layer-3 AUDIO: 44100 Hz, 2 ch, s16le, 320.0 kbit/22.68% (ratio: 40000->176400) Selected audio codec: [mp3] afm: mp3lib (mp3lib MPEG layer-2, layer-3)

Opening /dev/dvb/adapter0/audio0
DVB AUDIO DEVICE: No such file or directory
AO: [null] 44100Hz 2ch s16le (2 bytes per sample)
Video: no video
Starting playback...
I checked 'OSS PCM (digital audio) API' and 'OSS Mixer API' in kernel configure and recompiled the kernel, the 'dsp' appears in /dev, but It couldn't solve this problem, I can't hear any voice from headphone.
I try to add "Freescale Multimedia Plugins/Codecs", such as libfslvpuwrap,fsl-alsa-plugins,gst-fsl-plugins, etc...
But when I checked these plugins/codecs (used command './ltib --preconfig config/platform/imx/defconfig.dev' then checked in ‘Package list ---> Freescale Multimedia Plugins/Codecs --->’), I cound't compile successful, met the error message as following shown:
asrc_pair.c: In function 'asrc_pair_create':
asrc_pair.c:143: error: 'struct asrc_config' has no member named 'input_word_width'

error: Bad exit status from /media/data/myir/MX28x/L2.6.35_1.1.0_130130_source/ltib/tmp/rpm-tmp.9498 (%build)
How do I fix it?
I missed some patches?
The asrc_config was defined in include/linux/mxc_asrc.h, and it has no member named input_word_width, output_word_width.


Answer:

I build the gstreamer codec on the L2.6.35_1.1.0_130130 bsp, the result is ok, refer to the linux multimedia user guide. libfslvpuwrap, gst-plugins-gl, fsl-alsa-plugins only available for MX6 platform. you can refer to the user guide to build the gstreamer, if you couldn't find it, pls let me know it.


2. iMX287 reset issue

Question:
Hi All, We used iMX287 MCU to design our board, it has dual ETHs. But if I enable ETHs from kernel, I can't reset the board by press the reset key or run "reboot" command, and if I disable ETHs from kernel, I can reset the board correctly. Are there any conflicts between the chip and the ETHs? or any points we need to attend when design the board?

Answer:

We got the solution about that, the power of ETHS can't connect to VDDIO, use an extend 3.3v instead. The ENETs probably drained more current than what the VDDIO could supply from a PMU perspective, for more information please refer to the PMU section of the i.MX28 Datasheet.
