2.1.6. Known Issues

This section contains the list of known issues at the time of making the release and any known workaround.

Record ID Board/s Component/s Summary Workaround
PRSDK-5064 am654x-evm, am654x-idk Audio, Video, & Display RTOS: Maxwell MCASP Device Loopback Regression test 7 and 9 fail  
PRSDK-5642 am335x-evm Board Support USB_DevBulk_ExampleProject: Failed to load/run app Use JTAG to load and run the example
PRSDK-5178 am571x-idk, am572x-idk, am574x-idk Board Support Uniflash: Host tool fails to load Flash Programmer, when Flash device is programmed In case of AM5 platform, if flash device is programmed with a valid boot image, the board boots from flash as soon as powered on. After this, attempting to connect the board over JTAG will fail. | Workaround for this issue is to insert SD card without any valid boot image( to prevent booting from SD card), and power on the board. SD boot has boot sequence priority over Flash device. This will hold the board booting out of flash device.
PRSDK-5667 am654x-evm, am654x-idk Board Support AM65xx diagnostic tests hang on R5 core Use the diagnostic tests built for A53 core.
PRSDK-5229 am654x-idk Board Support PCIe diagnostic test validates only one port on PCIe 2-lane card  
PRSDK-4843 am654x-idk Board Support Pinmux support for AM654x IDK ICSS MII pin is missing

PRSDK-6109 am654x-evm, am654x-hsevm, am654x-idk Boot ROM load time of SBL increased on GP devices Use ROM degenrate key on GP devices for signing the SBL. To do this, overwrite ti/build/k3_dev_mpk.pem with ti/build/rom_degenerateKey.pem before building the SBL
PRSDK-4706 am654x-evm, am654x-idk Boot SBL: MCU0 Boot in R5 Split Mode not supported in SBL The SBL currently cannot reset the MCU1 subsystem to restart the cores in split mode. To workaround this, the MPU needs to reset the MCU1 sub-system. To configure the MCU1 susb-system in split mode, do the following. a) Create a multi-core image with a MCU1_0 image, a MCU1_1 image and an MPU image. b) The MPU1 image must contain code to reset the MCU sub-system. Refer the function sblTestResetMcu in sbl/example/k3MulticoreApp/sbl_amp_multicore.c for example code on how to reset the MCU subsystem c) Before resetting the MCU, the MPU must wait for the SBL to boot MCU1_0

2.1.8. Installation and Usage

The Getting Started Guide provides instructions on how to setup up your development environment, install the SDK and start your development.

To uninstall the SDK, remove the individual component directories from the installed path. This is safe to do even in Windows since these components do not modify the Windows registry.


2.1.9. Technical Support and Product Updates

For further information or to report any problems, contact: - TI E2E Processor Support for all supported platforms

2.3. Migration Guide

2.3.1. Overview

This page covers migration information from last Processor SDK RTOS release (Processor SDK RTOS 05.03.00) to the present release (Processor SDK RTOS 06.00.00)

2.3.2. PRUSS

Migration-1: Calls that passed PRUICCSS_INSTANCE_MAX as a parameter to PRUSS driver API calls will now pass PRUICCSS_INSTANCE_THREE instead.

Impact Scope: Applicable for all AM65xx applications using PRUSS driver for ICSSG use case

Additional Details: The following new enumeration, PRUICCSS_INSTANCE_THREE, for PRU-ICSS instance 3 has been added to PRUICSS_MaxInstances enumeration list as PRUICCSS_INSTANCE_MAX is not longer valid when making PRUSS driver API calls.

2.3.3. Board Library

Migration: MMU configuration is needed to enable NBO CFG registers access on A53 core

Impact Scope: Applicable for all AM65xx RTOS applications calling Board_init with ‘BOARD_INIT_ICSS_ETH_PHY’ flag

Additional Details: Board library is setting NAVSS THREADMAP register to give higher priority for MSMC access from ICSSG which requires access to NBO CFG registers.
