Device Configuration

Boot Modes

This device supports a variety of boot modes through an internal DSP ROM bootloader. This device does not support dedicated hardware boot modes; therefore, all boot modes utilize the internal DSP ROM. The input states of the BOOT pins are sampled and latched into the BOOTCFG register, which is part of the system configuration (SYSCFG) module, when device reset is deasserted. Boot mode selection is determined by the values of the BOOT pins.

See Using the TMS320C6748/C6746/C6742 Bootloader (SPRAAT2) for more details on the ROM Boot Loader.

The following boot modes are supported:

  • NAND Flash boot
    • 8-bit NAND
    • 16-bit NAND (supported on ROM revisions after d800k002 -- see the bootloader documents mentioned above to determine the ROM revision)
  • NOR Flash boot
    • NOR Direct boot (8-bit or 16-bit)
    • NOR Legacy boot (8-bit or 16-bit)
    • NOR AIS boot (8-bit or 16-bit)
  • HPI Boot
  • I2C0/I2C1 Boot
    • EEPROM (Master Mode)
    • External Host (Slave Mode)
  • SPI0/SPI1 Boot
    • Serial Flash (Master Mode)
    • SERIAL EEPROM (Master Mode)
    • External Host (Slave Mode)
  • UART0/UART1/UART2 Boot
    • External Host
  • MMC/SD0 Boot


The following system level features of the chip are controlled by the SYSCFG peripheral:

  • Readable Device, Die, and Chip Revision ID
  • Control of Pin Multiplexing
  • Priority of bus accesses different bus masters in the system
  • Capture at power on reset the chip BOOT pin values and make them available to software
  • Control of the DeepSleep power management function
  • Enable and selection of the programmable pin pullups and pulldowns
  • Special case settings for peripherals:
    • Locking of PLL controller settings
    • Default burst sizes for EDMA3 transfer controllers
    • Selection of the source for the eCAP module input capture (including on chip sources)
    • McASP AMUTEIN selection and clearing of AMUTE status for the McASP
    • Clock source selection for EMIFA
    • DDR2 Controller PHY settings
  • Selects the source of emulation suspend signal (from DSP) of peripherals supporting this function.

Many registers are accessible only by a host (DSP) when it is operating in its privileged mode. (ex. from the kernel, but not from user space code).

Pullup/Pulldown Resistors

Proper board design should ensure that input pins to the device always be at a valid logic level and not floating. This may be achieved via pullup/pulldown resistors. The device features internal pullup (IPU) and internal pulldown (IPD) resistors on most pins to eliminate the need, unless otherwise noted, for external pullup/pulldown resistors.

An external pullup/pulldown resistor needs to be used in the following situations:

  • Boot and Configuration Pins: If the pin is both routed out and 3-stated (not driven), an external pullup/pulldown resistor is strongly recommended, even if the IPU/IPD matches the desired value/state.
  • Other Input Pins: If the IPU/IPD does not match the desired value/state, use an external pullup/pulldown resistor to pull the signal to the opposite rail.

For the boot and configuration pins, if they are both routed out and 3-stated (not driven), it is strongly recommended that an external pullup/pulldown resistor be implemented. Although, internal pullup/pulldown resistors exist on these pins and they may match the desired configuration value, providing external connectivity can help ensure that valid logic levels are latched on these device boot and configuration pins. In addition, applying external pullup/pulldown resistors on the boot and configuration pins adds convenience to the user in debugging and flexibility in switching operating modes.

Tips for choosing an external pullup/pulldown resistor:

  • Consider the total amount of current that may pass through the pullup or pulldown resistor. Make sure to include the leakage currents of all the devices connected to the net, as well as any internal pullup or pulldown resistors.
  • Decide a target value for the net. For a pulldown resistor, this should be below the lowest VIL level of all inputs connected to the net. For a pullup resistor, this should be above the highest VIH level of all inputs on the net. A reasonable choice would be to target the VOL or VOH levels for the logic family of the limiting device; which, by definition, have margin to the VIL and VIH levels.
  • Select a pullup/pulldown resistor with the largest possible value; but, which can still ensure that the net will reach the target pulled value when maximum current from all devices on the net is flowing through the resistor. The current to be considered includes leakage current plus, any other internal and external pullup/pulldown resistors on the net.
  • For bidirectional nets, there is an additional consideration which sets a lower limit on the resistance value of the external resistor. Verify that the resistance is small enough that the weakest output buffer can drive the net to the opposite logic level (including margin).
  • Remember to include tolerances when selecting the resistor value.
  • For pullup resistors, also remember to include tolerances on the IO supply rail.
  • For most systems, a 1-kΩ resistor can be used to oppose the IPU/IPD while meeting the above criteria. Users should confirm this resistor value is correct for their specific application.
  • For most systems, a 20-kΩ resistor can be used to compliment the IPU/IPD on the boot and configuration pins while meeting the above criteria. Users should confirm this resistor value is correct for their specific application.
  • For more detailed information on input current (II), and the low-/high-level input voltages (VIL and VIH) for the device, see Section 5.3, Recommended Operating Conditions.
  • For the internal pullup/pulldown resistors for all device pins, see the peripheral/system-specific terminal functions table.
