How do I use SPI?

------test source-----------

device="/dev/spi_misc_test";

fd = open(device, O_RDWR);
if (fd < 0)

/*
  * spi mode
  */
ret = ioctl(fd, SPI_IOC_WR_MODE, &mode);

Re: How do I use SPI?

hi schkiki

you can find that spi_misc_test don't have an open function in source file kernel/drivers/spi/spi-rockchip-test.c

static const struct file_operations spi_test_fops = {

.write = spi_test_write,
};
so, it will be an error abort when you open the spi_misc_test.

before you want to open it or read it, you should write an open function, read function by yourself.

by the way, the SPI in firefly-rk3288 using the linux common interface, you can get more samples by google.

Re: How do I use SPI?

Hello,

I have firefly rk 3288 board.

As I found on the tutorial on the website [wiki gpio ] I tried to use SPI /GPIO but could not found dts file or even kernel/drivers or kernel/.../boot/dts/..etc

I also tried with find and locate command. it does not return any file with *.dts

Are these all about kernel compilation from source ? what are the actual steps I need to perform and what are those ?

Could you please write some more details  about how use GPIO/SPI ..

thanks

dts is in kernel source tree.

Re: How do I use SPI?

Hi,

I as look on that, if I am not work , I have to download kernel source tree from here - https://bitbucket.org/T-Firefly/firefly-rk3288-kernel, after configuraing dts for gpio/spi I have to build it and install kernels and modules, Is that right?

Re: How do I use SPI?

dear all,

I am little bit  confused about the firefly. I modified the  dts file inside the kernel source /arch/arm/boot/dts firefly-rk3288.dts.

My confusion is when kernel compiled will it take firefly-rk3288.dts or firefly-rk3288_beta.dts . Both have the same node i guess.

thanks

hi LNX_HOBBY

it will take firefly-rk3288.dts when you compile kernel, if your board is hardware version 2014.09.30.
