MPC8xx Communication options

MPC8xx CPM OptionsEdit

    • depends on 8xx


  • Option: SCC_ENET
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) CPM SCC Ethernet
    • depends on NET_ETHERNET
      Enable Ethernet support via the Motorola MPC8xx serial communications controller.


"SCC used for Ethernet"

    • depends on SCC_ENET
    • default SCC1_ENET


  • Option: SCC1_ENET
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) SCC1
      Use MPC8xx serial communications controller 1 to drive Ethernet (default).


  • Option: SCC2_ENET
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) SCC2
      Use MPC8xx serial communications controller 2 to drive Ethernet.


  • Option: SCC3_ENET
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) SCC3
      Use MPC8xx serial communications controller 3 to drive Ethernet.



  • Option: FEC_ENET
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) 860T FEC Ethernet
    • depends on NET_ETHERNET
      Enable Ethernet support via the Fast Ethernet Controller (FCC) on the Motorola MPC8260.


  • Option: USE_MDIO
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Use MDIO for PHY configuration
    • depends on FEC_ENET
      On some boards the hardware configuration of the ethernet PHY can be used without any software interaction over the MDIO interface, so all MII code can be omitted. Say N here if unsure or if you don't need link status reports.


  • Option: FEC_AM79C874
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Support AMD79C874 PHY
    • depends on USE_MDIO

    • (on/off) Support LXT970 PHY
    • depends on USE_MDIO


  • Option: FEC_LXT971
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Support LXT971 PHY
    • depends on USE_MDIO

    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Use Big CPM Ethernet Buffers
    • depends on SCC_ENET || FEC_ENET
      Allocate large buffers for MPC8xx Ethernet. Increases throughput and decreases the likelihood of dropped packets, but costs memory.


  • Option: HTDMSOUND
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Embedded Planet HIOX Audio
    • depends on SOUND=y
This doesn't really belong here, but it is convenient to ask
8xx specific questions.

"Generic MPC8xx Options"


  • Option: 8xx_COPYBACK
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Copy-Back Data Cache (else Writethrough)
      Saying Y here will cause the cache on an MPC8xx processor to be used in Copy-Back mode. If you say N here, it is used in Writethrough mode.
      If in doubt, say Y here.


  • Option: 8xx_CPU6
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) CPU6 Silicon Errata (860 Pre Rev. C)
      MPC860 CPUs, prior to Rev C have some bugs in the silicon, which require workarounds for Linux (and most other OSes to work). If you get a BUG() very early in boot, this might fix the problem. For more details read the document entitled "MPC860 Family Device Errata Reference" on Motorola's website. This option also incurs a performance hit.
      If in doubt, say N here.
