(dorabmon) #41

Hi, Frank

Could you help to test if the issue can be fixup after making the below changes which use clocks all from 26M instead of the old ones.

pwm: pwm@11006000 {
        compatible = "mediatek,mt7623-pwm";
        reg = <0 0x11006000 0 0x1000>;
        #pwm-cells = <2>;
        clocks = <&clk26m>,
        clock-names = "top", "main", "pwm1", "pwm2",
                      "pwm3", "pwm4", "pwm5";
        status = "disabled";

(Frank W.) #42

currently it seems to do nothing, no output on pwm3 (pin 7+9)

root@bpi-r2:~# echo 3 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/export
root@bpi-r2:~# echo 200000 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm3/period                 
[  130.864219] [mtk_pwm_config] period_ns: 200000, duty_ns: 0                   
root@bpi-r2:~# echo 100000 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm3/duty_cycle             
[  130.864230] [mtk_pwm_config] resolution: 38, clkdiv: 0                       
[  140.144237] [mtk_pwm_config] period_ns: 200000, duty_ns: 100000              
root@bpi-r2:~# echo 1 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm3/enable

btw. you have a typo in second clock-line (missing “>”)

reverted the change and i got the 1kHz (instead of 5kHz) again

(Frank W.) #43

anything new to PWM-frequency-bug?

(dorabmon) #44

Can you add more 4-times division into the equation and test again? I think it should be internal clock factor is missing in the clock driver for PWM.

as doing that

clock = clk_get_rate(clk) / 4;
resolution = NSEC_PER_SEC / clock;

and not to do as that

resolution = NSEC_PER_SEC / clk_get_rate(clk) / 4;

it would cause more precision is losing.

(Frank W.) #45

Using old clock,right? clk26m results in no output

(dorabmon) #46

please drop old patch with 26Mhz. and use original code as 4.14 kernel is using.

(Frank W.) #47

1kHz without /4 and with it again no output

[  780.909447] [mtk_pwm_config] period_ns: 200000, duty_ns: 0
[  780.909457] [mtk_pwm_config] resolution: 0, clkdiv: 0
[  784.029473] [mtk_pwm_config] period_ns: 200000, duty_ns: 100000

changed that “/ 4” in my main-branch codebase (not commited/pushed)

(dorabmon) #48

So weird. do you ensure you add more 4-times divisor based on the code you have done below testing?

(Frank W.) #49

Sorry, did it like in your second example…i try the first one tomorrow

Edit: its more near 5kHz :slight_smile:

How preceise should it be?

so the clock(-divider) is a bit inaccurately…can you confirm, that these values are correct depending on Hardware-spec:

clock: 68250000, clockrate: 273000000

(Frank W.) #50

Seems this is related: +

(dorabmon) #51

4-times problem seems it is being solved

~5% inaccuracy you said I thought that is another problem

(Frank W.) #52

reverted my patch and applied the official from sean wang and can confirm it works the same way as my test:

echo 3 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/export
echo 200000 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm3/period
echo 100000 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm3/duty_cycle 
echo 1 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm3/enable 

4,78kHz on Oscilloscope

added Info also to my wiki

(dorabmon) #53

good news. sean wang already posted another patch for the inaccuracy problem similar to this one.

(Frank W.) #54

ok, for this patch i need a bit more time because this patch (and depending) is not compatible with my codebase. maybe it’s done for 4.16

tried to merge the new changes into my version of pwm-mediatek.c (other pwm45-fix than refererred by sean): pwm_fwu.patch (2,0 KB)

for pwm3 it works, frequency is exactly 5kHz…where are the pwm 1, 4 and 5 on the bpi-r2?

(dorabmon) #55

The solution should be workable for all PWMs.

pwm4 can be found on gpio header.

pwm1 is routed to lcm display

and for pwm5, it seems to be used to control FAN (cn12).

I think it is easier to test pwm4 at first than test1 and pwm5.

(Frank W.) #56

Where on gpio is pwm4? I’ve found only pwm2 and pwm3 in shematics…

With lcm-display you mean the mipi-port?

(Frank W.) #57

@garywang can you show us where are pwm1,4 and 5 are located on bpi-r2?

(gary) #58

PWMs can be configured to the following GPIOs:


PWM4 - GPIO110 GPIO124 GPIO206

PWM5 - GPIO125 GPIO207

(Frank W.) #59

where are these gpio (found that not on 40 pin header) and how is the routing done?

(Tejas Rathod) #60

hi @frank-w, @garywang, i tried a lot to work pwm3 but could not succeed. Can you please help me to make it run. my kernel is v4.4.7 on ubuntu.

i could access gpio but not pwm. echo 3 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/export echo 200000 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm3/period echo 100000 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm3/duty_cycle echo 1 >/sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/pwm3/enable
