sun4i-drm and LCD-Panels

Recommended Posts

(edited)

Hello,

Im currently working on making lima run with an original 5"-LCD on BananaPro.
My problem is to make it work with the sun4i-drm driver.
At boot everything works fine and the display shows u-boot and kernel outputs but when the kernel starts the sun4i-drm driver the display freezes and turns white after some seconds.
dmesg says:

Lima was set up properly and works with HDMI output so far.

What confuses me is the line where it says "No panel or bridge found... RGB output disabled".
The 5"LCD is connected via RGB-Interface and has already been working less than a second before.
So it seems the display has not been detected properly by the sun4i-drm module.

 

Has anyone ever had a similar Problem?
Any suggestions where to search for the problem's solution?

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

Hello Werner,


Thank you for your propt reply.
The output of armbianmonitor -u has been located here: http://ix.io/2qTs

The device tree has been changed according this description (last post):

I changed the device tree to integrate the axp209 PMIC driver according to the configuration given in BananaPi's device tree and added SPDIF-Support.

So please don't mind about messages which don't appear on usual BananaPro images.

 

regards

Hello,

I got I finally working. There are some changes to be done in the device tree to make sun4i-drm and lima work with LCD-Panels on BananaPi / BananaPro.
Short version: create a panel in device tree and connect it to the correct driver.

Here's what I did:

1. Start compilation with

./compile.sh CREATE_PATCHES=yes BOARD=bananapipro INSTALL_HEADERS=yes

2. If asked to apply changes modify u-boot-config:

nano /build/cache/sources/v2020.04/configs/Bananapro_defconfig

add

#5" RGB LCD
CONFIG_VIDEO_LCD_MODE="x:800,y:480,depth:24,pclk_khz:30000,le:40,ri:40,up:29,lo:13,hs:48,vs:3,sync:3,vmode:0"
CONFIG_VIDEO_LCD_POWER="PH12"
CONFIG_VIDEO_LCD_BL_EN="PH8"
CONFIG_VIDEO_LCD_BL_PWM="PB2"

3. modify sun7i-a20 device tree

nano build/cache/sources/v2020.04/arch/arm/dts/sun7i-a20.dtsi

add the tcon0_out_lcd section to tcon0:

tcon0: lcd-controller@1c0c000 {
            //.....
            
            ports {
                //.....

                tcon0_out: port@1 {
                    #address-cells = <1>;
                    #size-cells = <0>;
                    reg = <1>;
                    tcon0_out_lcd: endpoint@0 {
                        reg = <0>;
                        remote-endpoint = <&lcd_in_tcon0>;
                    };
                    tcon0_out_hdmi: endpoint@1 {
                        reg = <1>;
                        remote-endpoint = <&hdmi_in_tcon0>;
                    };
                };
            };
        };

I don't know if it works for tcon1 too but feel free to try. Then add the same lines to tcon1 and replace each "tcon0" with "tcon1".
Then add a panel section:

panel: panel {
            #address-cells = <1>;
            #size-cells = <0>;
            port {
                #address-cells = <1>;
                #size-cells = <0>;
                lcd_in_tcon0: endpoint {
                    remote-endpoint = <&tcon0_out_lcd>;
                };
            };
        };

If you also want to use tcon1 add lcd_in_tcon1 section .

My Lemaker 5"LCD-Display uses RGB-Mode so this has to be added to pio section

		pio: pinctrl@1c20800 {
			compatible = "allwinner,sun7i-a20-pinctrl";
              
            //.....
              
			lcd0_rgb888_pins: lcd0-rgb888 {
				pins = "PD0", "PD1", "PD2", "PD3",
				       "PD4", "PD5", "PD6", "PD7",
				       "PD8", "PD9", "PD10", "PD11",
				       "PD12", "PD13", "PD14", "PD15",
				       "PD16", "PD17", "PD18", "PD19",
				       "PD20", "PD21", "PD22", "PD23",
				       "PD24", "PD25", "PD26", "PD27";
				function = "lcd0";
			};
              
           	//.....
              
		};

4. modify bananapro device tree

nano build/cache/sources/v2020.04/arch/arm/dts/sun7i-a20-bananapro.dts

Add backlight and power management for the panel

#include <dt-bindings/pwm/pwm.h>

/ {
    model = "LeMaker Banana Pro";
    compatible = "lemaker,bananapro", "allwinner,sun7i-a20";

    //.....

    backlight: backlight {
            compatible = "pwm-backlight";
            pwms = <&pwm 0 50000 0>;
            brightness-levels = <  0   1   1   1   1   2   2   2
                                   2   3   3   3   3   4   4   4
                                   5   5   5   6   6   6   7   7
                                   8   8   8   9   9   9  10  10
                                  10  11  11  12  12  12  13  13
                                  14  14  14  15  15  16  16  17
                                  17  17  18  18  19  19  20  20
                                  21  21  21  22  22  23  23  24

            default-brightness-level = <128>;
            enable-gpios = <&pio 7 8 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>; /* PH8 */
    };

    panel_power: panel_power {
            compatible = "regulator-fixed";
            regulator-name = "panel-power";
            regulator-min-microvolt = <10400000>;
            regulator-max-microvolt = <10400000>;
            gpio = <&pio 7 12 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>; /* PH12 */
            enable-active-high;
            regulator-boot-on;
    };
};

Configure tcon to use our panel and enable display engine

&de {
	status = "okay";
};

&tcon0 {
    pinctrl-names = "default";
    pinctrl-0 = <&lcd0_rgb888_pins>;
    status = "okay";
};

&panel {
    compatible = "lemaker,bl050-rgb-002";
    power-supply = <&panel_power>;
    backlight = <&backlight>;
};

Add touch driver for edt-ft5x06:

&i2c3 {
    status = "okay";
    pinctrl-names = "default";
    pinctrl-0 = <&i2c3_pins>;
    edt: edt-ft5x06@38 {
        compatible = "edt,edt-ft5x06", "edt,edt-ft5306";
        reg = <0x38>;
        interrupt-parent = <&pio>;
        interrupts = <7 9 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_FALLING>;
//      wake-gpios = <7 7 GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW>;
        pinctrl-names = "default";
        pinctrl-0 = <&edt_ft5x06_pins_a &edt_ft5x06_pins_b>;
        touchscreen-size-x = <800>;
        touchscreen-size-y = <480>;
        //touchscreen-inverted-x;
        //touchscreen-inverted-y;
        //touchscreen-swapped-x-y;
    };
}; 

Add edt_ft5x06 and backlight pins:

&pio {
        edt_ft5x06_pins_a: ft5@0 { // interrupt
                pins               = "PH9";
                function           = "irq";
                drive-strength     = <20>;
                bias-pull-up;
        };

        edt_ft5x06_pins_b: ft5@1 { // reset-gpios
                pins               = "PH7";
                function           = "gpio_out";
                drive-strength     = <20>;
                bias-pull-up;
                output-high;
        };
};

&pwm {
      pinctrl-names = "default";
      pinctrl-0 = <&pwm0_pin>, <&pwm1_pin>;
      status = "okay";
};

Hit <Enter>

 

If asked the nexttime to press enter:

 

5. Make sure your panel driver available in kernel drivers. Mine was not. So I had to add it to the simple panel driver which already contains the Lemeker 3,5"LCD-Display.

 

nano build/cache/sources/linux-mainline/orange-pi-5.4/drivers/gpu/drm/panel/panel-simple.c

add this right after lemaker_bl035_rgb_002

static const struct panel_desc lemaker_bl050_rgb_002 = {
    .modes = &lemaker_bl050_rgb_002_mode,
    .num_modes = 1,
    .size = {
        .width = 108,
        .height = 64,
    },
    .bus_format = MEDIA_BUS_FMT_RGB888_1X24,
    .bus_flags = DRM_BUS_FLAG_DE_HIGH,
};

static const struct drm_display_mode lg_lb070wv8_mode = {
    .clock = 33246,
    .hdisplay = 800,
    .hsync_start = 800 + 88,
    .hsync_end = 800 + 88 + 80,
    .htotal = 800 + 88 + 80 + 88,
    .vdisplay = 480,
    .vsync_start = 480 + 10,
    .vsync_end = 480 + 10 + 25,
    .vtotal = 480 + 10 + 25 + 10,
    .vrefresh = 60,
};

and this right after lemaker,bl035-rgb-002

static const struct of_device_id platform_of_match[] = {
	{
//.....
    }, {
    .compatible = "lemaker,bl050-rgb-002",
    .data = &lemaker_bl050_rgb_002,
    }, {
//.....
	}
}

Do steps 3 and 4 to

build/cache/sources/linux-mainline/orange-pi-5.4/arch/arm/boot/dts/sun7i-a20.dtsi

and

build/cache/sources/linux-mainline/orange-pi-5.4/arch/arm/boot/dts/sun7i-a20-bananapro.dts

and hit <Enter> and proceed build

 

 

Have a look at this page for other display configurations:

Thanks a lot to sgei and his tutorial!

Many thanks to authors of another hunderd websites which also helped but I can't even list.

Please let me know if this works for BananaPi too.
