PCMCIA Problem

Started by Harry October 19, 2007
Hi all,

We have interfaced the PCMCIA bus to Intel PXA270  processor.
We have written our own driver for it and runs linux-2.6.15.2.
When i insert the PCMCIA device,WLAN card ,when the system is is
booted up for the first time and card manager application is
running,it shows the details of the card like the manufacturer
details.But if i unplug it and insert it ,with card manager still
running,it shows as anonymous memory.

Does anybody experienced same problem and solved it?

I have seen something similar to this... We solved this by always resetting the PCI controller upon disconnect of the PCI device. This is kind of a crowbar approach but it worked for our system. We were able to do this because we would only ever have a single PCI device connected to our system. We were using an ARM9 running the ThreadX OS with a custom Mini-PCI driver for an 802.11g wireless card. Hope this helps. Keith http://www.doubleblackdesign.com
