How to enable Atom E3800 PCU UART serial port in ubuntu 14.04.

Jump to solution

Hi,

I am using Atom E3800 series (E3826) kontron processor core board and carrier development board. and I have installed ubuntu 14.04(64bit).

Atom E3800 has one PCU uart which is default for GPIO not for uart. and 2 high speed uarts. the other 2 high speed work well.

The PCU uart connects to ser1 (J21) in carrier board. I tried to enable it as a uart port. it seems it become a uart,but it can not send or received data.

I tried the following commands to enable PCU uart as /dev/ttyS0:

 

sudo setpci -s 0:1f.0 80.l=1 # according to the datesheet need enable UART_CONT.COM1EN , default is disable as GPIO; this command works! I can set the bit.

 

sudo setserial /dev/ttyS0 autoconfig # set up uart and make ttyS0 work. this command seems work. if find ttyS0 UART appears 16550A. use command :sudo setserial -g /dev/ttyS0 to output:

# /dev/ttyS0. UART: 16550A, Port:0x03f8, IRQ: 4

 

and I use cat /proc/interrupts :

CPU0 CPU1

..

4: 2 0 IO-APIC-edge

 

...

It seems serial port works! but it can not send or receive date. anyway interrupt counter works when i send data. but no data handled!

 

 

what's wrong?

 

 

How can I enable the PCU UART serial port in ubuntu 14.04?

 

 

anyone help?

 

Thank you very much.

if anybody has the same issue, please refer:

up to now,

=====================================

Unfortunately, according to User's Guide,

"HS-UARTs and SIO-UARTs cannot be used simultaneously."

It appears to be a BIOS limitation.
