New VTOS Tools support for NXP QorIQ T1xxx
With the 2.0.0 release of VTOS Tools, we added support for NXP QorIQ T1xxx family of processors. VTOS DDR and VTOS Scan Plus were released with T1xxx support. Kozio now supports QorIQ models: T1013, T1014, T1020, T1022, T1023, T1024, T1040, and T1042.
VTOS DDR provides DDR3 or DDR4 tuning, calibration, and comprehensive validation. Built in test commands and tuning scripts run on your custom T1xxx design at full processor speed. Tests are provided for structural, noise, and cell testing. Use the tune command to automatically cycle through all tunable DDR settings, while comprehensively testing the memory at each setting. After 20-30 minutes, a report is printed showing optimal settings. Use the import feature to update your custom board settings. Then, dump the settings for use in U-Boot or other boot loaders. This feature alone can save weeks of tedious effort.
VTOS Scan Plus provides embedded firmware that runs out of the box on your custom T1xxx circuit board design. This tool provides tests that run at full processor speed and can test numerous hardware interfaces in seconds. This solution can be automated and easily called from any test executive. VTOS Scan provides an easy-to-learn solution for first prototype testing, new product introduction, manufacturing test, and failed or return device testing.
Below is a screen shot showing VTOS Scan Plus running a test configuration example using the T1024RDB reference board. The T1040RDB provides a great configuration example since it contains a CPLD on the Local Bus, 12 Ethernet PHYs, 8 I2C devices on two separate buses, a NOR Flash, SD Card, and SPI flash, and other devices. These and other interfaces can all be tested with VTOS Scan Plus.
