VIM1 Device Tree Overlay

We can use DT overlays to enable/disable or change configuration for peripherals without recompiling the DT kernel source code.

Device Reference Table

Device Configurations

VIM1/2/3/3L/Edge1

DT-overlays dtbo directory: /boot/dtb/overlays/BOARD

BOARD should be kvim1, kvim2, kvim3, kvim3l or edgev.

Next example for VIM3 device, which can be different for other device, but the structure is the same.

khadas@Khadas:~$ ls -1 /boot/dtb/overlays/kvim3/
disable-ts050.dtbo
i2c3.dtbo
m2x-eth.dtbo
onewire.dtbo
os08a10.dtbo
pwm_f.dtbo
spi1.dtbo
uart3.dtbo

DT-overlays configuration file:

/boot/env.txt
# Device Tree Overlays
#   uart3           -- Enable UART3 (uart_C, GPIO Header PIN15 & PIN16)
#   pwm_f           -- Enable PWM_F (GPIO Header PIN35)
#   i2c3            -- Enable i2c3 (GPIO Header PIN22 & PIN23)
#   spi1            -- Enable SPI1 (GPIO Header PIN15 & PIN16 & PIN35 & PIN37), pwm_f need to be removed
#   os08a10         -- Enable OS08A10 Camera
#   onewire         -- Enable onewire bus (PIO Header PIN15)
#   disable-ts050   -- Disable TS050 LCD
#   m2x-eth         -- Enable M2X 100M ethernet. Note: 1G ethernet will be disabled.
#   otg-device      -- Enable USB OTG Device
overlays=uart3 pwm_f i2c3 os08a10
  • default overlays list variable value: uart3 pwm_f i2c3 os08a10
  • If you want to disable pwm_f you can remove pwm_f from overlays list variable
  • If you want to enable onewire, you can add onewire to overlays list variable

VIM4

DT-overlays dtbo directory: /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim4.dtb.overlays

khadas@Khadas:~$ ls -1 /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim4.dtb.overlays/
ext_board.dtbo
i2cm_a.dtbo
i2cm_f.dtbo
pwm_f.dtbo
uart_e.dtbo

DT-overlays configuration file: /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim4.dtb.overlay.env.

VIM1S

DT-overlays dtbo directory: /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim1s.dtb.overlays

khadas@Khadas:~$ ls -1 /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim1s.dtb.overlays/
i2cm_b.dtbo
i2cm_e.dtbo
pwm_f.dtbo
uart_c.dtbo

DT-overlays configuration file is /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim1s.dtb.overlay.env.

Edge2

DT-overlays dtbo directory: /boot/dtb/rockchip/rk3588s-khadas-edge2.dtb.overlays

khadas@Khadas:~$ ls /boot/dtb/rockchip/rk3588s-khadas-edge2.dtb.overlays
mipi-panel.dtbo

DT-overlays configuration file: /boot/dtb/rockchip/rk3588s-khadas-edge2.dtb.overlay.env

Configuration DT Overlays

You need to edit the DT overlays configuration file and add custom DT overlays dtbo files to special folder.

Make custom DT Overlays

There are some preparations steps for DT overlays dtbo files, you can also add custom DT overlays.

Write DT Overlay Source

Basic DT overlay source example:

example.dts
/dts-v1/;
/plugin/;
 
/ {
    fragment@0 {
        target = <&i2c3>;
 
        __overlay__ {
            status = "okay";
        };
    };
};

Compile DT Overlay Source

dtc -I dts -O dtb -o example.dtbo example.dts

Copy DT Overlays to Special Folder

  • VIM4 is /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim4.dtb.overlays
  • VIM1S is /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim1s.dtb.overlays
  • Edge2 is /boot/dtb/rockchip/rk3588s-khadas-edge2.dtb.overlays
  • VIM1/2/3/3L/Edge1 is /boot/dtb/overlays/**BOARD**

BOARD should be kvim1, kvim2, kvim3, kvim3l or edgev.

Edit DT Overlays Configuration

Edit list variable value inside DT overlay configuration file:

  • VIM1/2/3/3L/Edge1 is /boot/env.txt
  • VIM4 is /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim4.dtb.overlay.env
  • VIM1S is /boot/dtb/amlogic/kvim4.dtb.overlay.env
  • Edge2 is /boot/dtb/rockchip/rk3588s-khadas-edge2.dtb.overlay.env

Reboot

Need reboot board to take effect.
