I'm trying and this is what I do. What is wrong by reading data from par0?
When the driver starts and I read data I have 0x04
When I write in the par0 and after if I read I always read FF and I can't read any data like input
static ssize_t driver_read (struct file * filep, char * buff, size_t count,
loff_t * offp)
*buff = (unsigned char) *R_PAR0_STATUS_DATA;
return count;
static ssize_t driver_write (struct file * filep, const char * buff,
size_t count, loff_t * offp)
*R_PAR0_CTRL_DATA = PAR_OE | *buff;
return count;
static int __init etrax_CAN_sja1000_init(void)
if (register_chrdev(MAJOR_NUMBER, DEVICE_FILE, &driverCAN_fops))
printk("unable to get major %d for SJA1000 CAN controller\n", MAJOR_NUMBER);
*R_PAR0_CONFIG = 0x00000060; /*Manual-mode, enable port, inmediate mode change*/
return SUCCESS;
