Firewire interface with MPC8347

Started by RTOSCPU September 30, 2007
Hi,
I am implementing firewire interface with MPC8347 Microcontroller using
VxWorks RTOS. I am using TI's TSB43AB23 firewire OHCI link/PHY layer
controller which is connected to MPC8347 using PCI Interface. 
Both TSB43Ab23 and MPC8347 are configured as PCI master and only these 2
devices are present on PCI bus.
When I connect a Firewire Simulator/Analyzer to TSB43Ab23 I am able to
receive SelfID packets in MPC8347. But when I send a read or write request
packets from Firewire analyzer to TSB43Ab23 it doesn’t respond in any
ways. 
I have confirmed settings of TSB43AB23 registers are correct with TI’s
support engineer.


Is any one has an experience of interfacing TSB43AB23 to any PowerPC
Microcontroller who can help me in solving this problem?

Thanks,
HM

Best way to debug such type of stack development projects is to get the FireSpy400 tool. Cost just about 15000USD. With FireSpy400 tool , you will also be able to view the corrupted packets if any. A serious QTP tester could also use this tool for testing the finalized product agianst corrupted packet that can be generated using it. Don't wait for rupee to appreciate further more, go ahead and buy it!
