ARM/StrongARM(SA1110) Intel SA1110 (Assabet)


RedBoot supports the board serial port and the compact flash ethernet port. The default serial port settings are 38400,8,N,1. RedBoot also supports flash management on the Assabet.

The following RedBoot configurations are supported:

ROM[ROM]RedBoot running from the board's flash boot sector.redboot_ROM.ecm
RAM[RAM]RedBoot running from RAM with RedBoot in the flash boot sector.redboot_RAM.ecm

Initial Installation Method

A Windows or Linux utility is used to program flash over parallel port driven JTAG interface. See board documentation for details on in situ flash programming.

The flash parts are also socketed and may be programmed in a suitable device programmer.

Platform Resource Usage

The SA11x0 OS timer is used as a polled timer to provide timeout support for network and XModem file transfers.

Rebuilding RedBoot

These shell variables provide the platform-specific information needed for building RedBoot according to the procedure described in Chapter 3:

export TARGET=assabet
export ARCH_DIR=arm
export PLATFORM_DIR=sa11x0/assabet

The names of configuration files are listed above with the description of the associated modes.
