HDLC Synchronous RS232

Started by sunil May 27, 2005
hi all,

 iam currently programming MC68360 board processor SCC's to work for
Synchronous HDLC and iam taking out RS232 pin outs from the P2
connector.

I have initialized the registers and set jumpers according to the
instructions. but iam not getting the Clock signals from the TXCLK
lines.
can u pls give me some hints what r the things that can go wrong which
will lead to this kind of problem.

thanks and regards,

Have you turned the transmitter on? http://www.freescale.com/files/32bit/doc/user_guide/MC68360SS7UM.pdf
hi,

 thanks for your response.

 i have enabled the transmitter using the Enable Transmit(ENT=1)in GSMR
register.

 is it what u r saying or is there anything else i had to do to start
the transmitter?
please get back to me with some hints.

thanks

Have you studied thoroughly the HDLC configuration examples in the manual (chapter 7.10.17.14 and 7.10.17.15 at least in the original manual). The QUICC co-processor is quite complex. Do you have any previous experience of using the SCC ports as UARTs ? If not, I would suggest that you first try make the interface work as a UART before attempting to set it up as HDLC. Paul

Are you seeing flags on your TX line ? 0x7F at whatever bitrate you are using. If the transmitter is enabled, HDLC mode selected you should see 0x7F on the TX line. If not, then either you have not enable HDLC mode, or TX is disabled ot you have selected to not have flags in idle mode. Regards Anton Erasmus
hi,
 thanks for your response.
as you have said iam able to see the 0x7f on the TXD line after the
Transmitter is enabled. my only problem is iam not able to see the
clock signal on the TXCLK line.

I have set  the PAPAR reister to all 1's i.e PAPAR = 0xffff

PAODR = 0x0000;
PADAT = 0xffff;
PADIR = 0x0000;
PAPAR = 0xffff;

is there any problem with the above register settings?

In the current scenario iam initializing BRG4 to 19.2 kbps and using it
for the ports SCC2 and SCC3

BRGC4 = 0x020000;
BRGC4 = 0x0100a2;

SICR &= 0xff0000ff;
SICR |= 0x001b1b00;

can u pls check my above settings for SICR and BRGC registers and see
if iam doing it right?

thanks,

Flags are 01111110, i.e. 0x7e. -- Tauno Voipio tauno voipio (at) iki fi
hi,

 yeah flags are 0x7e u r right it was a typing mistake.

thanks

As has been pointed out the flags are 0x7E.

I do not have the MC68360 docs handy, hence cannot check the detail. In general you should look at the baud rate generator settings. It should be possible to output this clock on a pin regardless of what mode the SCC is in. Setting up the pins to output the signal you want is probably descriped in a different section from where the SCC is described. You probalby need to set up some registers that has something to do with selecting either an alternative function for a pin or using it as a general purpose I/O. Regards Anton Erasmus
