ARM Eeprom-Tool - I211

Jump to solution

Hello,

We are working on a ARM-IMX6DL System on Module under a Linux-Embedded Environment whose hardware makes use of some I211, and we need the ARM Eeprom-tool to program them.

We have a CNDA with Intel (CNDA64954), if you need more information about it, please let me know.

 

Thank you,

Hello Gabriel.Dobato

Your CNDA account status shows that is still pending for approval. It might take 2 or 3 business days to get the approval status.

As soon as it is approved I will gladly provide the requested program.

Best Regards,

Adolfo Sanchez.

Hello Adolfo,

Thank you for your reply.

I specified the wrong CNDA number. The valid CNDA number is CNDA64977, this one should be active.

Please, could you check it ?

 

Thank you,

Hello Adolfo,

Thank you very much.

I have compiled it using a arm-cross-compiler . When I execute the binary I have this output-error:

root@debug:/home/debug/intel# ./eepromARMtool

-bash: ./eepromARMtool: No such file or directory

The Kernel-Version is quite new : 4.1.13 and our system uses Little-Endian for cofification.

I suppose it is trying to open a file on the wrong path or something like that...

Thank you in advance.

Hello

It was a problem with the linker. Now it works but we have the "bus error" message after executing the binary. I am going to have a look to some related problems on the forum... but I think I will need some help anyway...

Thank you

Hello Gabriel.Dobato

I'm sorry that you are experiencing problems with the tool. I will contact with the LAN engineers to consult about this to see what advice they can provide.

Hello AdolfoS

after modifying the kernel, I was able to program the devices, but eth iface is still not working:

Hi Gabriel,

the eepromARMtool, if not modified in the last 6 month programs only the INVM. But if not changed it looks like it would also program an external FLASH but it tryes only to program the first 4k of an external FLASH, normaly the external FLASCH has 1MBytes...

1. Make shure there is no external FLASH is present.

2. Provide yur own MAC-Adresss in 211_Invm_APM_v0.6.HEX.

3. My Invm.hex looks like this:

16E80002 00001541 038D0002 0B403C21 402F1411 34003611 1C605011 003C5211

157B1A11 05844211 06804811 F3431E19 16D10002 00FF00A8 16D00002 5E000090

17000019 40CF0219 04000419 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000

look at the at the last line..it is: set MAC-Reg 0 to 0x0017, set MAC-Reg 2(1) to 0xCF40 and set MAC-Reg 4(2) to 0x0004.

4. Please put your own MAC there, this one is 0017cf400004.

5. We upload an extra file with the mfg-tool to give our Machines the final MAC's.

I hope it could help

Hello Gabriel.Dobato

I received the following feedback from our engineers:

"The MAC address hasn't be programmed and that's the reason the customer is seeing this error. In the driver code the error can be traced to this function in the file kcompat.c

int

_kc_is_valid_ether_addr(u8 *addr)

{

const char zaddr[6] = { 0, };

return !(addr[0] & 1) && memcmp(addr, zaddr, 6);

}

Try commenting it out, load the driver and program the MAC address using ethtool. Uncomment and load the driver again. This should help get rid of the error.

Hope this is helpful.

Best Regards,

Adolfo Sanchez
