Yet another similar post about UIO and petalinux. I have a custom ip which simply writes the 8 LEDS from the zedboard. And as outputs it reads the values from the switches and also generates a pulse with a push button.
This works fine in a standalone application coded in SDK with the auto generated functions to read and write the custom IP plus it reacts to the interrupt. Now I am eager to replicate the behavior on linux with the UIO. Therefore, this are the steps that I am following:. But I have seen that this is autogenerated. Please try this workaround. One thing to remember here is all changes to recipes-dt will be overwritten except for the file system-user.
You need to use this file only to add changes to device-tree. Build Linux and boot it up. View solution in original post. I saw in another post that I should also edit pl. Should I? I just came to post this. I edited the system-user. It works now. I have one more thing Use the smart package manager instead that comes with Yocto and part of petalinux.
To enable this, please add:. Other thing I have been following this guide on how to write the UIO C code but it is general. How do I write to register N and read from register M? Please refer to this document for more information on how to use UIO.
Thank you akshayva for the help. I managed to read and write to different register in my custom ip:. Sign In Help. Turn on suggestions.

Hi Brandon, I found a strange question. The DMA driver can work well without this statement:system "Any instruction" in C language source code. Here's what I did.
Interesting, I suspect that this is because one of the file operations for the character device isn't properly implemented. Does this error occur if you don't specify system "sync" twice?
Also, what version of the Linux kernel are you using? Also tried with a single system "sync" and the kernel oops did occur in this case as well. The kernel oops seems to occur on either the next call to the library e. Any ideas what could be causing this?
Interesting, so it seems to be a persistent issue. I'll look into the code and see if I can figure out the reason why. Yes, the error ONLY occurs in the presence of those calls.
It will NOT happen if those calls are commented out or if our software doesn't execute the branch they are on. Interesting, and this fopen and fclose are just on some aribtrary file?
Is there any kind of test we could run to help you track this bug down? Curious if you or sk have come any closer to a resolution on this issue? Apologies, I lost track of this. I haven't had a chance to look into this any further, but I should be able to within the next few days. Here's an update on what I've found so far, baf and sk The page fault is being caused by one of the DMA buffers being removed twice from the allocated DMA buffers listwhich occurs on this line.
I suspect it may have something to do with how the character device is configured, but I'm not certain. In any case, I'm still trying to resolve it. I ended up finding the resolution to this issue. The problem was with how the driver dealt with memory regions that are copied when a process forks a child process. This explains sk 's issue with calling the sync program twice. However, this doesn't explain baf 's issue with fopen and fclose.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

Userspace applications use this UIO driver to configure and control the accelerator operations. Kernel modules need to be built against the version of the kernel it will be inserted in.
It is recommended to uses the Linux kernel maintained by Xilinx. The driver module can be compiling outside of the Linux kernel source tree. The default value has it pointing to the default Linux install location for kernel sources.
However, if cross compiling or if the sources are in a non-default location the value can be overridden using an exported environmental variable or as an argument passes into the make command. Use of the driver module requires it to be inserted into the running Linux kernel. Alternatively, once the modules inserted the permissions can be changed manually using 'chmod'. To install the module and have it loaded at boot, first install the udev rule as shown above and then follow the below instructions.
The uflow library has to be built and installed before the demo applications can be compiled. The library offers a number of generic functions for use in configuring the accelerator.
For example, it can write a single values or pass in an entire array of values. Skip to content. Dismiss Join GitHub today GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together. Sign up. C Shell. Branch: master.

The kernel is configured to support loadable modules by default, for those loadable device drivers, we can select it as built-it or module. If a driver is selected as a module, it will not be loaded when booting Linux.
We can load it after Linux boots by using the modprobe command see below. IRQ Configuration of interrupts and interrupt-parent The "interrupt-parent" property is used to specify the controller to which interrupts are routed and. Interrupts listed in the "interrupts" property are always in reference to the node's interrupt parent.
The first value is a flag indicating if the interrupt is an SPI shared peripheral interrupt. A nonzero value means it is an SPI. The second value is the interrupt number. The second value should be the hardware number minus 32, which is 89, or 0x From irq. Before changing system-user. Addresses of pl. For example, our device tree generation. Update UIO system-user.

For many types of devices, creating a Linux kernel driver is overkill. All that is really needed is some way to handle an interrupt and provide access to the memory space of the device. The logic of controlling the device does not necessarily have to be within the kernel, as the device does not need to take advantage of any of other resources that the kernel provides.
The main part of the driver will run in user space. This simplifies development and reduces the risk of serious bugs within a kernel module.
Please note that UIO is not an universal driver interface. Devices that are already handled well by other kernel subsystems like networking or serial or USB are no candidates for an UIO driver. Hardware that is ideally suited for an UIO driver fulfills all of the following:.
Find something wrong with this document? Or perhaps something right? I would love to hear from you. Please email me at hjk hansjkoch. Each UIO device is accessed through a device file and several sysfs attribute files. Just use mmap to access registers or RAM locations of your card.
You can use this number to figure out if you missed some interrupts. Now the userspace part can determine the cause of the interrupt, but it cannot re-enable interrupts. This would be racy if a new interrupt occurred simultaneously. To address these problems, UIO also implements a write function. It is normally not used and can be ignored for hardware that has only a single interrupt source or has separate IRQ mask and status registers. You have to write a bit value that is usually either 0 or 1 to disable or enable interrupts.
To handle interrupts properly, your custom kernel module can provide its own interrupt handler. It will automatically be called by the built-in handler.
Each driver provides attributes that are used to read or write variables. These attributes are accessible through sysfs files. A custom kernel driver module can add its own attributes to the device owned by the uio driver, but not added to the UIO device itself at this time.
This might change in the future if it would be found to be useful. Please note that this directory might be a symlink, and not a real directory. Any userspace code that accesses it must be able to handle this. Each UIO device can make one or more memory regions available for memory mapping. These directories will only appear if the size of the mapping is not 0. From userspace, the different mappings are distinguished by adjusting the offset parameter of the mmap call. To map the memory of mapping N, you have to use N times the page size as your offset:.
Sometimes there is hardware with memory-like regions that can not be mapped with the technique described here, but there are still ways to access them from userspace.Asked by Saad Zia. I need help regarding interrupt handling using UIO. I am using Vivado The board used is Zedboard. I made the following vivado project attached as image.
But the issue is that this code is not catching the interrupt.MATLAB as AXI Master with Xilinx FPGA and Zynq SoC Boards
Kindly help me in this. Looking at your code again, it doesn't look like you ever initialize your gpio controller to trigger interrupts. Note that it will also be up to you to properly reset the Interrupt status register once an interrupt has been detected. I'm happy it works for you, glad to help you.
I glanced over your code quickly and it seems like you are doing things correctly. Please provide the device tree node for your UIO device.

In former questions i ask for the Driver Support in Linux and how i can write or use them. First i was glad to see that the Drivers are automaticaly added to the image. But i'am missing the expected "uio"-Drivers. What must i do to get the "uio"-Drivers for my design with petalinux?
Handling GPIO interrupts in userspace on Linux with UIO
Here is an example of a GPIO device in the device tree with the compatible string of "generic-uio". To set one of your devices as a UIO device, you must use "system-user. This last portion will tell the kernel to load the uio drivers on boot. You can find examples for this in our repo for the Arty-Z which is here.
After adding these parts to system-user. Does Xilinx provide it? Hello morsucci. What is wrong with my Version of a "nice dtsi file"? I referenced my vivado design, the adresses are wright, but the result not I read your example "system-user.

If you want, send me a copy of your system-user. Erase anything you added to system-conf. That should fix your latest reported build error. Petalinux auto-generates the device tree nodes based on the names of the IP blocks, not the names of the external interfaces. FYI, pl.
