1Notes about the MVME147 bsp

3MVME147 port for TNI - Telecom Bretagne

8This bsp is essentially based on the mvme136 bsp.

10Summary of the modifications that were made:
11
12 * include
13 
14   - bsp.h
15      Peripheral Channel Controller memory mapping
16      Z8530 memory mapping
17 
18 * startup
19 
20   - bspstart.c
21      main () setup for VME roundrobin mode
22              setup for the PCC interrupt vector base
23   - bspclean.c
24      bsp_cleanup () disable timer 1 & 2 interruptions
25   - linkcmds set the RAM start (0x5000) and size (4Meg - 0x5000)
26   - setvec.c unchanged
27   - sbrk.c unchanged
28 
29 * console
30 
31   - console.c taken from the dmv152 bsp (Zilog Z8530)
32               with no modification
33 
34 * clock
35 
36   - ckinit.c entirely rewritten for the PCC tick timer 2
37 
38 * timer
39 
40   - timerisr.s and timer.c
41     entirely rewritten for the PCC tick timer 1
42     now gives results un 6.25 us units (mininum timer delay,
43     suprising big grain)
44 
45 * times
46 
47   - updated results for the mvme147 (beware of the 6.25 us grain)
48
49 * Makefiles
50   
51   - compilation of shmsupp simply removed
52
53
54To be done:
55
56 * add VMEchip memory mapping to include/bsp.h
57
58 * update the overheads in coverhead.h
59
60 * add support for serila ports 2,3 and 4.
61
62Other notes:
63
64 * There is no MP support (no more shmsupp) because I have no
65   experience of the VME bus. The mvme136 shared memory support
66   does not seem applicable on the VMEchip of the mvme147, so
67   I don't know where to start. Suggestions are welcome.
68
69 * All the timing tests and sp tests have been run except tmoverhd.
70   The test hangs during the pause (where the task should be suspended
71   until a return). Maybe the rtems_initialize_executive is no more
72   reentrant with this bsp.
73
74Future work:
75
76 * Add gdb serial remote support.
77
78 * Shared memory support (I don't really need it, but I can do
79   it if it's simple).
80
81 * Message passing on VME bus, with Ada 95 annex E (distributed
82   systems) in mind.
