Embedded boards based on PowerPC, ARM, MIPS and several other
processors, which can be installed in a boot ROM and used to
initialize and test the hardware or to download and run application
code.

The development of U-Boot is closely related to Linux: some parts of
34
35
the source code originate in the Linux source tree, we have some
header files in common, and special provision has been made to

support booting of Linux images.

Some attention has been paid to make this software easily
configurable and extendable. For instance, all monitor commands are
implemented with the same call interface, so that it's very easy to
add new commands. Also, instead of permanently adding rarely used
code (for instance hardware test utilities) to the monitor, you can
load and run it dynamically.


Status:
=======

In general, all boards for which a configuration option exists in the
50
Makefile have been tested to some extent and can be considered

"working". In fact, many of them are used in production systems.

53
In case of problems see the CHANGELOG and CREDITS files to find out
54
55
who contributed the specific port. The MAINTAINERS file lists board
maintainers.

Versioning:
===========

U-Boot uses a 3 level version number containing a version, a
sub-version, and a patchlevel: "U-Boot-2.34.5" means version "2",
sub-version "34", and patchlevel "4".

The patchlevel is used to indicate certain stages of development
between released versions, i. e. officially released versions of
U-Boot will always have a patchlevel of "0".

Software Configuration:
=======================

Configuration is usually done using C preprocessor defines; the
rationale behind that is to avoid dead code whenever possible.

There are two classes of configuration variables:

* Configuration _OPTIONS_:
  These are selectable by the user and have names beginning with
  "CONFIG_".

* Configuration _SETTINGS_:
  These depend on the hardware etc. and should not be meddled with if
  you don't know what you're doing; they have names beginning with
215
  "CONFIG_SYS_".

Later we will add a configuration tool - probably similar to or even
identical to what's used for the Linux kernel. Right now, we have to
do the configuration by hand, which means creating some symbolic
links and editing some configuration files. We use the TQM8xxL boards
as an example here.


Selection of Processor Architecture and Board Type:
---------------------------------------------------

For all supported boards there are ready-to-use default
configurations available; just type "make <board_name>_config".

Example: For a TQM823L module type:

	cd u-boot
	make TQM823L_config

235
For the Cogent platform, you need to specify the CPU type as well;

248
249
250
e.g. "make cogent_mpc8xx_config". And also configure the cogent
directory according to the instructions in cogent/README.


Configuration Options:
----------------------

Configuration depends on the combination of board and CPU type; all
such information is kept in a configuration file
"include/configs/<board_name>.h".

Example: For a TQM823L module, all configuration settings are in
"include/configs/TQM823L.h".

Many of the options are named exactly as the corresponding Linux
kernel configuration options. The intention is to make it easier to
build a config tool - later.

		kernels (which expect the clocks passed in the
		bd_info data to be in MHz) the environment variable
		"clocks_in_mhz" can be defined so that U-Boot
		converts clock data to MHZ before passing it to the
		Linux kernel.
		When CONFIG_CLOCKS_IN_MHZ is defined, a definition of
351
		"clocks_in_mhz=1" is automatically included in the
wdenk's avatar

352
353
		default environment.

356
		When transferring memsize parameter to linux, some versions
wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed

		expect it to be in bytes, others in MB.
		Define CONFIG_MEMSIZE_IN_BYTES to make it in bytes.

361
362

		New kernel versions are expecting firmware settings to be
363
364
365
366

368
		passed using flattened device trees (based on open firmware
		concepts).

		CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT

		It loads the vxWorks image pointed bootfile.

		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_BOOT_DEVICE - The vxworks device name
		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_MAC_PTR - Ethernet 6 byte MA -address
		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_SERVERNAME - Name of the server
		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_BOOT_ADDR - Address of boot parameters

		CONFIG_SYS_VXWORKS_ADD_PARAMS

		Add it at the end of the bootline. E.g "u=username pw=secret"

		Note: If a "bootargs" environment is defined, it will overwride
		the defaults discussed just above.

		When this option is #defined, the existence of the
		environment variable "preboot" will be checked
		immediately before starting the CONFIG_BOOTDELAY
		countdown and/or running the auto-boot command resp.
		entering interactive mode.

		This feature is especially useful when "preboot" is

		modified when the user holds down a certain
		combination of keys on the (special) keyboard when
		booting the systems

		is used as number of pixel from right/bottom. You can also
		specify 'm' for centering the image.

		CONFIG_LZMA

		If this option is set, support for lzma compressed

		Note: The LZMA algorithm adds between 2 and 4KB of code and it
		requires an amount of dynamic memory that is given by the
		formula:

			(1846 + 768 << (lc + lp)) * sizeof(uint16)

		Where lc and lp stand for, respectively, Literal context bits
		and Literal pos bits.

		This value is upper-bounded by 14MB in the worst case. Anyway,
		for a ~4MB large kernel image, we have lc=3 and lp=0 for a
		total amount of (1846 + 768 << (3 + 0)) * 2 = ~41KB... that is
		a very small buffer.

		Use the lzmainfo tool to determinate the lc and lp values and
		then calculate the amount of needed dynamic memory (ensuring
1144
		the appropriate CONFIG_SYS_MALLOC_LEN value).

		to be *at least* 15,000 usec before a Windows Server 2003
		DHCP server would reply 100% of the time. I recommend at
		least 50,000 usec to be safe. The alternative is to hope
		that one of the retries will be successful but note that
		the DHCP timeout and retry process takes a longer than
		this delay.

- Status LED:	CONFIG_STATUS_LED

		Several configurations allow to display the current
		status using a LED. For instance, the LED will blink
		fast while running U-Boot code, stop blinking as
		soon as a reply to a BOOTP request was received, and
		start blinking slow once the Linux kernel is running
		(supported by a status LED driver in the Linux
		kernel). Defining CONFIG_STATUS_LED enables this
		feature in U-Boot.

- CAN Support:	CONFIG_CAN_DRIVER

		Defining CONFIG_CAN_DRIVER enables CAN driver support
		on those systems that support this (optional)
		feature, like the TQM8xxL modules.

- I2C Support:	CONFIG_HARD_I2C | CONFIG_SOFT_I2C

		These enable I2C serial bus commands. Defining either of
1343
		(but not both of) CONFIG_HARD_I2C or CONFIG_SOFT_I2C will
1344
		include the appropriate I2C driver for the selected CPU.

1346
		This will allow you to use i2c commands at the u-boot
1347
		command line (as long as you set CONFIG_CMD_I2C in
wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
1348
1349
		CONFIG_COMMANDS) and communicate with i2c based realtime
		clock chips. See common/cmd_i2c.c for a description of the
1350
		command line interface.

		CONFIG_SOFT_I2C configures u-boot to use a software (aka

		support for I2C.

		There are several other quantities that must also be

1359
		defined when you define CONFIG_HARD_I2C or CONFIG_SOFT_I2C.
wdenk's avatar

1361
		In both cases you will need to define CONFIG_SYS_I2C_SPEED
1362
		to be the frequency (in Hz) at which you wish your i2c bus
1363
		to run and CONFIG_SYS_I2C_SLAVE to be the address of this node (ie
1364
		the CPU's i2c node address).

1366
		Now, the u-boot i2c code for the mpc8xx (cpu/mpc8xx/i2c.c)
1367
		sets the CPU up as a master node and so its address should

wdenk committed
1368
		therefore be cleared to 0 (See, eg, MPC823e User's Manual
1369
		p.16-473). So, set CONFIG_SYS_I2C_SLAVE to 0.

		CONFIG_SYS_I2C_INIT_MPC5XXX

		When a board is reset during an i2c bus transfer
		chips might think that the current transfer is still
		in progress.  Reset the slave devices by sending start
		commands until the slave device responds.

1378
		That's all that's required for CONFIG_HARD_I2C.
