  The LPC32XX_PWM1_BASE &  LPC32XX_PWM2_BASE  addresses are physical addresses, not kernel virtual addresses.

  Can you please ioremp these addresses in your driver & try again?

Subject: [Ltib] simple PWM driver for LPC3250


Dear NXP guys,

I am trying to implement the simple PWM driver for LPC3250 under linux kernel 2.6.34.

Now I am stuck at the register writing. It's seems the Simple-PWM 1 and 2 were not functional.

Using raw_readl and raw_writel to the LPC32XX_CLKPWR_PWM_CLK_CTRL register is work, but which causes segmentation fault to the LPC32XX_PWM1_BASE and LPC32XX_PWM2_BASE.


Please kindly reply to me with some suggestion, thank you.


Here is my partial code in driver module:

//HW init first

tmp = __raw_readl(LPC32XX_CLKPWR_PWM_CLK_CTRL);

printk(KERN_ERR PWM_DRVNAME ": PWM clk reg value 0x%x\n", tmp);





__raw_writel(tmp, LPC32XX_CLKPWR_PWM_CLK_CTRL);//Turn On PWM1 and PWM2


tmp = __raw_readl(LPC32XX_CLKPWR_PWM_CLK_CTRL);

printk(KERN_ERR PWM_DRVNAME ": PWM clk reg value = 0x%x after write.\n", tmp);


tmp = LPC32XX_PWM1_EN | LPC32XX_PWM1_DUTY(127) | LPC32XX_PWM1_RELOADV(10);// 13M/10/256 = 5k

__raw_writel(tmp, LPC32XX_PWM1_BASE);

tmp = LPC32XX_PWM2_EN | LPC32XX_PWM2_DUTY(127) | LPC32XX_PWM2_RELOADV(10);

__raw_writel(tmp, LPC32XX_PWM2_BASE);


tmp = __raw_readl(LPC32XX_PWM1_BASE);

printk(KERN_ERR PWM_DRVNAME ": PWM1 reg value = 0x%x.\n", tmp);

tmp = __raw_readl(LPC32XX_PWM2_BASE);

printk(KERN_ERR PWM_DRVNAME ": PWM2 reg value = 0x%x.\n", tmp);


The result:

# insmod pwm.ko

pwmd: PWM clk reg value 0x0

pwmd: PWM clk reg value = 0x11f after write.
