AM5728: Issue adapting MCASP_Audio_evmAM572x_c66ExampleProject for IDK

Part Number: AM5728

I am working with an AM5728 IDK which has been modified to connect to an adc over McASP4. I am trying to use the MCASP_Audio_evmAM572x_c66ExampleProject as a starting point and modify it to run MCASP4 as a slave to get data from the ADC.

When I run my project on the IDK it is getting stuck in an infinite while loop in the McASP3_Enable() function. I had converted this to McASP4_Enable and it wasn't working so I tired running the original McASP3_Enable and it gets stuck in the same place. This is where it gets stuck:

        /* McASP3 Module Control */

I had run this example project successfully on an evmAM572x before modifying it to run as a slave on McASP4. The point in the code where it gets stuck is before it reaches most of my changes. Is there something inherently different about the IDK compared with the EVM which could be causing this issue?

  • What is the value being read from the CM_L4PER2_MCASP3_CLKCTRL register (address 0x4A00 9868)?

  • Do you have a TI debugger (e.g. XDS100v2, XDS110, etc.)?  If so, you can capture a register dump of the complete clock tree.  That will help us understand why that clock isn't turning on.

    You should download the following script:

    Directions on how to run it can be found here:

    You can rename the generated *.rd1 file as *.txt and attach to your response (or zip it and attach).

  • Do you have a second clock in your system?  In other words, are you using only the 20 MHz main clock hooked up to SYS_CLK1 or do you also have another clock hooked up to SYS_CLK2?

    What I think might be the issue is that currently you have configured CM_CLKSEL_ABE_PLL_SYS[0] to a value of 1 (SYS_CLK2).  If you don't have anything connected to that clock then you end up without an AUXCLK for the McASP which is a critical clock.  That's likely why it's not turning on correctly.

  • We haven't made any modifications to the IDK in terms of clocks (except for MCASP_ACLKR coming from the ADC, as the AM5728 is running as a slave). Is the presence of SYS_CLK2 something which is different on the general purpose EVM as opposed to the IDK?

  • Yes, this is a difference between the EVM and IDK.

    • EVM OSC1 (SYS_CLK2) = 22.5792 MHz
    • IDK OSC1 (SYS_CLK2) = ground

    Both boards connect a 20 MHz crystal to OSC0 (SYS_CLK1).  The bit I mentioned is likely your issue.

  • Great! So the McASP device should work properly with CM_CLKSEL_ABE_PLL_SYS[0] set to 0?


  • I am getting past this initialization stage now, but am getting an abort when calling mcaspCreateChan(). Specifically, stepping into the driver, an assert is failing when calling:

        /* start AHCLKR                                                           */
        mcaspBitSetGblRCtl(instHandle, (uint32_t) MCASP_GBLCTLR_RHCLKRST_MASK);

    It seems to be a timeout waiting for another register value to be updated

  • What is the value of the MCASP_AHCLKRCTL register (address 0x4846 8074)?

  • Can you please snip a few lines of code so I see a line or two before and after the problematic code?

    Also, can you please provide the values for these registers:

    • MCASP_ACLKRCTL, 0x4846 8070
    • MCASP_ACLKXCTL. 0x4846 80B0




    The relevant calls in the application code leading up to the issue are:

    Mcasp_socGetInitCfg(MCASP_NUM, &hwInfo);

    hwInfo.dmaHandle = McaspApp_edmaInit(&hwInfo);

    Mcasp_socSetInitCfg(MCASP_NUM, &hwInfo);


    status = mcaspBindDev(&hMcaspDev, MCASP_NUM, &mcaspParams);
        if((status != MCASP_COMPLETED) || (hMcaspDev == NULL))
            MCASP_log("mcaspBindDev for McASP Failed\n");

        status = mcaspCreateChan(&hMcaspRxChan, hMcaspDev,
                                 mcaspAppCallback, NULL);

    The abort happens within the driver implementation of mcaspCreateChan:


        /* Reset RHCLKRST, RCLKRST, RSRCLR in GBLCTL                              */
            ~((uint32_t) MCASP_GBLCTLR_RHCLKRST_MASK

        McASPRxTimeSlotSet(instHandle->hwInfo.regs, rcvData->tdm);

  • Please capture a new clock tree register dump so I can review further.

  • Samuel -- On second thought I don't think I need the clock tree dump.  Instead can you please tell me the value of this register:

    CM_L4PER2_CLKSTCTRL, 0x4A00 98FC

    If the lower nibble is anything besides 2 please try setting it to 2.

    Also please look at this register:

    CM_L4CFG_CLKSTCTRL, 0x4A00 8D00

    If the lower nibble is non-zero, please set it to zero.  Please let me know the values of those registers before and after any changes.



  • Hi Brad,

    I actually got past this issue earlier today by reinstalling the latest SDK version. What I found odd, is it is working with CSL_CKGEN_PRM_CM_CLKSEL_CLKOUTMUX2_REG still set for SYS_CLK2, even though I had to switch CSL_CKGEN_PRM_CM_CLKSEL_ABE_PLL_SYS_REG to SYS_CLK1 because there is no SYS_CLK2 on the IDK. If I change CSL_CKGEN_PRM_CM_CLKSEL_CLKOUTMUX2_REG for SYS_CLK1 I still get the abort in the same place.




    Thanks for your help, Brad. I still don't have my code fully up and running yet, but I'm not "stuck" anymore.

  • Samuel,

    Thanks for the update.  I have closed this thread.  If you run into further issues please start a new thread.
