RE: Connecting AD-Converter to syncser0


The problem may be that the sync serial receiver is started to 
late. The receiver is started the first time read() is called.

Two possible solutions:

1. Open the port in non blocking mode and perform a dummy read
to start the receiver
2. Add SETS(port->ctrl_data_shadow, R_SYNC_SERIAL1_CTRL,rec_enable, enable)
in your ioctl

If this doesn't help and will check your software and the connection
to the AD.

Consider the sync serial driver experimental. It has not been tested
in all possible configurations.

More information about the synchronous serial port can be found
in the ETRAX 100LX Designer's Reference.

Hope this helps

Subject: Connecting AD-Converter to syncser0

Hi all,

I am trying to connect an AD-Converter (MAX1202) over SPI to syncser0.
For this purpose, I recompiled the kernel with "SyncSer0+DMA enabled". I
also added an argument (SPI_MBIDIR) to the synchronous serial driver
(sync_serial.c), which sets the port in MASTER_BIDIR mode when calling
ioctl(fd, SSP_SPI, SPI_MBIDIR).

Now, after writing config-data (8 Bit; 0xff for CH7 and external clock
mode) to syncser0, my AD-converter initializes correctly and sends 12
bits back to my Dev.Board_lx. The problem is, that I cannot read those
bits. I am only able to read bits (not the correct values), when setting
DIN of the AD-converter manually "high" and /CS "low". The converter is
continuously sampling data and sending on DOUT then.

Clocking a control byte into DIN starts conversion on the MAX1202. With
/CS low, each rising edge on SCLK clocks a bit from DIN into the
internal shift register. After /CS falls, the first logic "1" bit
defines the control byte's MSB. In external clock mode, the SSTRB output
pulses high for one clock period before the most significant bit of the
12-bit conversion result shifts out of DOUT.

I connected the AD-converter to the dev.board as follows:

Dev.Board             AD-Converter
  rxd1 (X25/1)	   <-     SSTRB
  /cts1(X25/4)     <-     DOUT
  txd1 (X25/2)     ->     CLK
  /rts1(X25/3)     ->     DIN
  pb4  (X4/7)      <-     /CS

Does anyone out there know how to set up syncser0 so that I can read my

I'm using kernel-2.4.3, Cris compiler 1.11 and Devboard_lx 1.0.0.
I also attached my application spi.c. It opens syncser0, writes the
control byte and tries to read the sampled value.

Many thanks in advance.
