I have searched EZ for this problem but I was unable to find any results. I am using the EVAL-ADV7625-SMZ board.
After installing a fresh copy of VisualDSP++ 5.1.2 off the ADI website, I opened up VisualDSP++ and navigated to File > Open > Project..., and then to VisualDSP 5.1.2/Blackfin/Examples/BF_7625_7625_X2.3.3REL_20150323/ADV7625_BF524.dpj, it won't open the project file. I get the following error window for a missing source file:
When I obtained the latest SDK software pack for my EVAL board (ADV7625_Evaluation_Board_Software-Rel2.4.0), it contained the following files in the SRC directory:
When I copied these files across (overwrote them) in the Examples\BF_7625_7625_X2.3.3REL_20150323\ADV7625_SW directory the situation never changed, and I still got the same error message.
"Could not locate the file: app_edid.c"
It seems that the software pack ADV7625_Evaluation_Board_Software-Rel2.4.0 does not contain app_edid.c.
Surely an example that comes packed with an IDE from Analog Devices for one of their own EVAL boards should at least open (let alone compile). Could it be that the example and the software pack are too far apart in date?
If so, could you recommend a software pack, EVAL-ADV7625-SMZ example, or both that actually open and compile?
Thanks Poornima for all your help.
I am using X2.3.3REL software. I'm actually getting nothing on TeraTerm, not even u-boot.
Could you confirm that I should be creating a *.bin firmware according to the below screenshots from the guide? If I intended on using Blackfin BF524 internal flash, should I be selecting "SPI"? I thought maybe Flash/PROM would be the correct choice for internal Blackfin flash?
It's early morning AEST, but as soon as I get to work tomorrow I'll post the source files here as *.zip.
Thanks again Poornima!
It won't be necessary to upload my sources for ADI to debug, I now have it working! I am very happy.
The key was to use VDSP++ to upload u-boot ONLY according to https://ez.analog.com/video/w/documents/689/how-can-i-restore-u-boot-on-eval-adv8005-smz.
After resetting the board, I interrupted u-boot countdown, and used YMODEM to upload my custom VDSP++ binary. I reset the board again and the TV showed up with the output of the BluRay player.
I then issued them command i2cw 0xF0 0x00 0x14 to enable OSD_EN bit and OSD blending, and the custom Blimp image showed up. Very happy! The demonstration to our customer who wants to use this chip is in 1 hour so I can breathe easily now thanks to your help.
It is great to see that your issue got resolved and you are all set to demonstrate it to your customer.
Thanks for the update!!
