Intel EMIF FPGA IP DTS / DTB error.

Hello,

 

Need help for this DTS/DTB generation error.

 

We are using this link as the base design:

 

https://rocketboards.org/foswiki/Projects/A10AVCVPCIeRootPortWithMSI

 

Then we added the FPGA DDR4 interface, "emif_0". We are having this DTS/DTB generation errors:

 

> sopc2dts -v -v --input ghrd_10as066n2.sopcinfo --output ghrd_10as066n2.dts --board hps_a10_common_board_info.xml --board ghrd_10as066n2_board_info.xml --bridge-removal all --clocks

 ERROR (phandle_references): Reference to non-existent node or label "emif_0_arch"

 ERROR: Input tree has errors, aborting (use -f to force output)

 

Internet search showed instructions for custom IP, but error is from Intel EMIF IP.

 

Attaching the files that may be needed to check:

 

 ghrd_10as066n2.qsys

 subsys_pcie.qsys

 ghrd_10as066n2.sopcinfo

 ghrd_10as066n2.dts

 

 dts_error.txt // error message log of sopc2dts and dtc commands

 

Thanks,

Hi Sir,

For the design, it already consist of the DDR4 which is HPS DDR4. So, I believe the emif_0 that you added is the FPGA EMIF.

Is this FPGA EMIF will used by your HPS system? If it is not use, then you can just delete those component emif_0* from the DTS file.

Hello, 

 

Thank you for the reply.

 

The project has two EMIFs:

 

HPS-EMIF 1GB: seen and used by Linux

 

FPGA-EMIF 2GB: not used by Linux, used by DMA engines for buffer.

 - 2GB memory space needs to be allocated by Linux (Malloc(?)).

 - h2f_axi_master (0xC000_0000) base address has < ~1GB range only to map

  - Can use address spanner for SW checking of buffer states

 

Thanks,

Hi Sir,

So emif_0 is the FPGA or HPS EMIF? If it is FPGA EMIF then you can just open the DTS in editor and delete the emif_0 line from there.

Hello,

 

Thank you for the reply. Yes, emif_0 is FPGA EMIF.

 

If emif_0 is deleted, how will Linux see the resource? How can Linux allocate the 2GB space?

 

Thanks,

As you mentioned, the emif_0 is not used by linux and HPS system, so you can delete it from the DTS.

Hello,

 

Sorry, need to correct my earlier statement.

 

HPS system will have access to FPGA EMIF. This is for the Linux drivers to allocate FPGA EMIF memory space for the DMA engines and to check the contents of the data buffer.

 

Main Linux OS will still run from HPS EMIF.

 

Thank you.

looks like the system not recognize any driver for emif. But seem like you only need to access the FPGA EMIF from HPS as a flat memory, maybe you can try to modify the DTS to flat memory as below. See if you still can access the address from HPS.

 

// emif_0_ecc_core: unknown@0x100000040 {

// compatible = "unknown,unknown-16.1";

// reg = <0x00000001 0x00000040 0x40000000>;

// clocks = <&emif_0_arch 0>;

// }; //end unknown@0x100000040 (emif_0_ecc_core)

memory {

device_type = "memory";

reg = <0xc0000000 0x20000000>;

};

Hello,

 

Thank you for the suggestion, tried it below:

 

//         emif_0_ecc_core: unknown@0x100000040 {

//            compatible = "unknown,unknown-16.1";

//            reg = <0x00000001 0x00000040 0x40000000>;

//            clocks = <&emif_0_arch 0>;

//         }; //end unknown@0x100000040 (emif_0_ecc_core)

 

         memory {

            device_type = "memory";

            reg = <0xc0000000 0x20000000>;

         }; //end memory

 

It produced a warining:

 

>dtc -I dts -O dtb -o trial_20190325a.dtb ghrd_10as066n2_20190325.dts

Warning (reg_format): "reg" property in /sopc@0/bridge@0xc0000000/memory has invalid length (8 bytes) (#address-cells == 2, #size-cells == 1)

 

Did somed edit (copied other entry under sopc@0):

 

         memory {

            device_type = "memory";

            reg = <0x00000001 0xc0000000 0x20000000>;

         }; //end memory

 

 

>dtc -I dts -O dtb -o trial_20190325a.dtb ghrd_10as066n2_20190325.dts

 

 

No more warning/error messages. Will try this in actual FPGA kit once project resources are returned.

 

Thank you very much for the help.
