QNX Momentics 6.3.2 Fujitsu Jade Evaluation Board BSP 1.0.0 Release Notes

QNX® Momentics® 6.3.2 Fujitsu Jade Evaluation Board BSP 1.0.0 Release Notes

Date of this edition: June 17, 2008

Target OS: This BSP is compatible with targets that are running QNX® Neutrino® 6.3.2.

Host OS: In order to install this BSP, you must have installed QNX Momentics 6.3.2 as a self-hosted QNX® Neutrino® system, or on one of the following hosts:

  • Microsoft Windows Vista, XP SP2, or 2000 SP4
  • Linux Red Hat Enterprise Workstation 4 or 5, Red Hat Fedora Core 6 or 7, Ubuntu 6.0.6 LTS or 7.0.4, or SUSE 10

Boards supported:Fujitsu Jade Evaluation Board


Note:
  • For information on installing this BSP, see the installation note.
  • Ensure you've installed the latest version of the QNX Momentics Character Driver Development Kit (DDK), because we've made significant changes to it since we first released it; for more information, see the Character DDK Release Notes.
  • To run graphics on this board, the Advanced Graphics Technology Development Kit (TDK) 2.0 is required. In addition, you also need to apply the Core Advanced Graphics TDK Patch (Patch ID 331) and the Image-GLES-AGTDK Patch (Patch ID 1048). You should apply patch 331 first and then patch 1048.
  • For the most up-to-date version of these release notes, go to our website (www.qnx.com), log into your myQNX account, and then go to the Download area.

Location of source and documentation

When you install BSPs, you'll find the source code in $QNX_TARGET\usr\src\archives\qnx\ on Windows, and in $QNX_TARGET/usr/src/archives/qnx/ on QNX Neutrino and Linux.

You can read the documentation (including release notes) in the Integrated Development Environment's help system on all host OSs; on self-hosted QNX Neutrino systems, you can also read it in the Photon helpviewer, or you can use a web browser to display:

${QNX_TARGET}/usr/help/product/momentics/bookset.html

This "roadmap" page contains links to the various HTML booksets that accompany the OS (e.g. System Architecture, QNX Neutrino Programmer's Guide, Library Reference, Utilities Reference, etc.).

Known issues for this BSP


Note: Please check the version of these release notes on the website for the most up-to-date information.

  • A conflict of I2C addresses between audio codec CS4245 and video ADC is found in the schematic of Extension Video Input PA4 board. In the original design, the I2C addresses of the CS4245 are read(0x99) and write(0x98). These conflict with the I2C addresses of video ADC AD9883A. To resolve this conflict, remove the R633 and put a 4k7 resistor on R630. This makes the I2C address of CS4245 become read(0x9b) and write(0x9a), which is 0x4d in 7-bit expression.
  • Usages of peripherals (such as I2S/SPI/Media LB interface) are likely to conflict with current hardware layout on the Jade Evaluation board. This is cause by the way multiplex IO pins are functionally grouped to give access to a peripheral. Currently default settings for group 2 and 4 conflict, these map to these peripherals, SPI, Medial LB, and I2S 1. For more information on how to resolve such conflict contact Fujitsu.
  • The frame synchronization of I2S_WSx signal has some issues which may cause channel-swapping when you capture/playback audio simultaneously. We've added a workaround to avoid this issue. You can disable this workaround by commenting out the line #define AUDIO_WORKAROUND in the file src\hardware\deva\ctrl\jade\jade_dll.c.
  • If you want to run the CRT monitor at the highest resolution(1024X768), you need to modify the default jade.conf file to increase the vsize from 0x400000 to 0x1000000. The display.conf file be used to configure the resolutions.
  • MediaLB functionality is not included in this BSP due to SMSC license restrictions. QNX MediaLB functionality for Jade is available as a separate archive for use with "NetService library v2.1.1", which you must obtain from SMSC directly. Please contact your QNX sales representative to request the QNX MediaLB Jade archive.
  • In Microsoft Windows, certain programs (e.g. Norton Ghost) add directories inside double quotation marks (e.g. ...;"c:\Program Files\Norton Ghost\";...) to your PATH environment variable. This causes the Cygwin spawn() function to fail, which in turn causes cp to fail when called by ln-w. (Ref# 20046)

    Workaround: Modify your PATH environment variable and remove any quotation marks.

  • In those instances where the the ROM monitor's MAC address is different from the one you pass in when running io-net, the host can cache the ROM monitor's address. This can result in a loss of connectivity.

    Workaround: If you need to specify a MAC address to io-net, we recommend that you use the same MAC address that the ROM monitor uses. This will ensure that if the host caches the ROM monitor's MAC address, you'll still be able to communicate with the target. Otherwise you might need to delete the target's arp entry on your host.
