Hello, fcamarda:

Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

The driver strength select field in Host Control 2 Register (bit 9 [hostctrl2_driverstrength_bit2]) defaults to "0" (3.3V mode drive strength [3.3V signaling]). Setting this bit to "1" selects the 1.8V mode drive strength [1.8V signaling].

The driver strength depends on the setting of bit 15 (hostctrl2_presetvalueenable). If Preset Value Enable = 0, the driver strength is set by the host driver. If Preset Value Enable = 1, the driver strength is automatically set to the values specified in the Capabilities Register (capabilities)—Offset 40h (refer also to Capabilities Register (capabilities)—Offset 40h).

You can confirm this information in sections 22.5.29 and 22.5.30, on pages from 4511 to 4515 of the https://edc.intel.com/Link.aspx?id=14201 Apollo Lake SoC External Design Specification (EDS) Volume 2 of 3 document # 557556 that you have mentioned.

We hope that this information may help you.

Best regards,

Carlos_A.

Hello Carlos_A,

thank you for the details.

Now could you please tell me which is the file I have to change to implement hostctrl2_presetvalueenable = 1 (instead of 0) ? Where can I find the Host Control 2 Register config?

And then use the Capabilities Register values that from my understanding came from the device (CAP) through the linux device driver ...

Hi Carlos,

Could you also provide the decoding of the bit[5:4] hostctrl2_driverstrength value from 0x0 to 0x3? How it is mapped to the output impedance?

Thanks!
