
High humidity and condensation on the board surface causes short circuits.

Do not operate the board outside the specified environmental limits.

Make sure the board is completely dry and there is no moisture on any surface before
applying power.
Power Requirements
The board uses +5.0 V from the VMEbus backplane. On board power supply generates the
required voltages for the various ICs. The MVME2500 connects the +12 V and -12 V supplies
from the backplane to the PMC sites, while the +3.3 V power supplied to the PMC sites comes
from the +5.0 V backplane power. A maximum of 10 A of +3.3 V power is available to the PMC
sites, however the 90 W +5.0 V limit must be observed as well as any cooling limitations.
The following table provides an estimate of the typical and maximum power required.

The MVME2500 has a single push button switch that has both the abort and reset functions.
Pressing the switch for less than three seconds generates an abort interrupt to the P20x0 QorIQ
PIC. Holding it down for more than three seconds will generate a hard reset. The VME SYSRESET
is generated if the MVME2500 is the VMEbus system controller.
3.3
LEDs
The MVME2500 utilizes light emitting diodes (LEDs) to provide a visible status indicator on the
front panel. These LEDs show power failures, power up states, Ethernet link/speed, ethernet
activity, SATA link and activity and PCI-E valid lane status. There are also a few user configurable
LEDs. Each LED description is necessary for troubleshooting and debugging.

e500 Processor Core
The QorIQ integrated processors offer dual high performance e500v2 core (P2020) and a
single e500v2 core (P2010). It operates from 800 MHz up to 1.2GHz core frequency. The e500
processor core is a low-power implementation of the family of reduced instruction set
computing (RISC) embedded processor that implement the Book E definition of the PowerPC
architecture. The e500 is a 32-bit implementation of the Book E architecture using the lower
words of 64-bit general-purpose registers (GPRs) while E500v2 uses 36 bit physical addressing
and some improvement from the previous version.
4.2.2
Integrated Memory Controller
A fully programmable DDR SDRAM controller supports most JEDEC standard DDR2 and DDR3
memories available. Unbuffered registered DIMMs are also supported. A built-in error checking
and correction (ECC) ensures very low bit-error rates for reliable high-frequency operation.
Though ECC is not implemented on MVME2500, the board includes a place holder for
additional chips for ECC whenever it is needed in the future.
The memory controller supports the following:
62

16 GB of memory

Asynchronous clocking from platform clock, with programmable settings that meets all
the SDRAM timing parameters.

Up to four physical banks; each bank can be independently addressed to 64 Mbit to 4 Gbit
memory devices (depending on the internal device configuration with x8/x16/x32 data
ports).

Chip set interleaving and partial array self-refresh.

Data mask signal and read-modify-write for sub-double-word writes when ECC is enabled.

Double-bit error detection and single-bit error correction ECC, 8-bit check work across 64bit data.

Address parity for registered DIMMs.
MVME2500 Installation and Use (6806800L01H)
Functional Description
4.2.3

PCI Express controller connects the internal platform to a 2.5 GHz serial interface. The P20x0
has the options for up to three PCI-E interfaces with up to x4 link width. The PCI-E controller can
be configured to operate as either PCI-E root complex (RC) or as an endpoint (EP) device.
4.2.4
Local Bus Controller (LBC)
The main component of the enhanced LBC is the memory controller that provides a 16-bit
interface to various types of memory devices and peripherals. The memory controller is
responsible for controlling eight memory banks shared by the following: a general purpose
chip select machine (GPCM); a flash controller machine (FCM) and user programmable
machines (UPMs).
4.2.5
Secure Digital Hub Controller (SDHC)
The SDHC/eSDHC provides an interface between the host system and the memory cards such
as the MMC and SD. It is compatible with the SD Host Controller Standard Specification Ver. 2.0
and supports the following: SD, miniSD, SD Combo, MMC+ and RS-MMC card.
4.2.6
I2C Interface
The MVME2500 uses only one of the two independent I2C buses on the processor. For more
information, see I2C Devices, on page 73.
4.2.7
USB Interface
The P20x0 implements a USB 2.0 compliant serial interface engine. For more information, see
USB, on page 73.
MVME2500 Installation and Use (6806800L01H)

Functional Description
4.2.8
DUART
The chipset provides two universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART), each of which
acts independently of the other. Each UART is clocked by the CCB clock and is compatible with
PC16522D. As a full-duplex interface, it provides a 16-byte FIFO for both transmitter and
receiver mode.
4.2.9
DMA Controller
The DMA controller transfers blocks of data between the various interfaces and functional
blocks of P20x0 that are independent of the e500 cores. The P20x0 DMA controller has three
high-speed DMA channels, all of which capable of complex data movement and advanced
transaction chaining.
4.2.10 Enhanced Three-Speed Ethernet Controller (eTSEC)
The eTSEC controller of the device communicates to the 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, and 1 Gbps
Ethernet/IEE 802.3 networks, as well as to devices with generic 8 to 16-bit FIFO ports. The
MVME2500 uses the eTSEC using the RGMII interface.
4.2.11 General Purpose I/O (GPIO)
The P20x0 has a total of sixteen I/O ports. Four of these ports are used alternately used as
external input interrupt. All sixteen ports have open drain capabitilies.
The P20x0 processor provides a Serial Rapid I/O interface. However, this interface is not
utilized by the MVME2500.
4.2.12 Security Engine (SEC) 3.1
The integrated security engine of the P20x0 is designed to off-load intensive security functions
like key generation and exchange, authenticaion and bulk encryption from the processor core.
It includes eight different execution units where data flows in and out of an EU.

The onboard FPGA provides programmable 16-bit watchdog timers. It has a 1 ms resolution
and generates a board reset when the counter expires. Interrupt is generated to the processor
when this occurs. Default value is 60 seconds.
4.4.4
FPGA Tick Timer
The MVME2500 supports three independent 32-bit timers that are implemented on the FPGA
to provide fully programmable registers for the timers.
4.5
Ethernet Interfaces
The MVME2500 has three eTSEC controllers. Each one supports RGII, GMII, and SGMII interface
to the external PHY. All controllers can only be untilized when using the RGMII interface. Using
the GMII allows only up to two usable controllers.
MVME2500 provides two 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces on the front panel and another two
are routed to the RTM through the backplane connector. Due to controller limitations, one
controller is designed to be routed to the front panel or to the RTM. This setting is possible by
using a third party gigabit Ethernet LAN switch with a single enable switch such as PERICOM’s
P13L301D. The routing direction can be configured through the on-board dip switch.
Each Ethernet controller has a single dedicated Broadcom BCM54616S with integrated MAC
and PHY. The registers of the PHY can be accessed through the processor’s two-wire Ethernet
management interface.The front panel RJ45 connector has integrated speed and and activity
status indicator LEDs. Isolation transformers are provided onboard for each port.

Functional Description
4.6
SPI Bus Interface
The enhanced serial peripheral interface (eSPI) allows the device to exchange data with
peripheral devices such as EEPROMs, RTC, Flash and the like. The eSPI is a full-duplex
synchronous, character-oriented channel that supports a simple interface such as receive,
transmit, clock and chip selects. The eSPI receiver and transmitter each have a FIFO of 32 Bytes.
P20x0 supports up to four chip selects and RapidS full clock cycle operation. It can operate both
full-duplex and half duplex. It works with a range of 4-bit to 16-bit data characters and is a
single-master environment. MVME2500 is configured such that the eSPI can operate up to 200
MHz clock rate and can support booting process.The firmware boot flash resides in the P20x0
eSPI bus interface.
4.6.1
SPI Flash Memory
The MVME2500 has two 8 MB onboard serial flash. Both contain the ENV variables and the UBoot firmware image, which is about 513 KB in size. Both SPI flash contain the same
programming for firmware redundancy and crisis recovery. The SPI flash can be programmed
through the JTAG interface or through an onboard SPI flash programming header.
For information on U-boot and ENV Variables location see, Flash Memory Map, Table 5-2 on
page 82.
4.6.2
SPI Flash Programming
The MVME2500 has three headers: a 10-pin header for SPI Flash programming, an 80-pin
header for the JTAG connectivity and a 20-pin JTAG header for ASSET hardware connectivity.
The following options are used to program the onboard flash:

Using onboard SPI header - The MVME2500 uses the 10-pin header with a Dual SPI Flash incircuit programming configuration. The pin connection is compatible with DediProg SPI
Unversal Pin Header.

Using 60-pin external JTAG header - An external JTAG board with a JTAG multiplexer is
compatible with the MVME2500 and can be attached using an external cable. It can be
used to update the boot loader in the field. Using this method, programming can be done
through the JTAG interface or by using the dedicated SPI Flash programming header on the
JTAG board.
MVME2500 Installation and Use (6806800L01H)
67
Functional Description

Factory Pre-Programming - Programming the SPI Flash usually takes a while. Ideally, the
SPI Flash should be pre-programmed in the factory before shipment.

ICT Programming - This programming is done on exposed test points using a bed of nails
tester.
The board power should be switched on before programming. The switch S2-8 should also be
powered on to successfully detect the SPI Flash chip.
4.6.3
Firmware Redundancy
The MVME2500 uses two physically separate boot devices to provide boot firmware
redundancy. Although the P20x0 provides four SPI Bus chip-selects, the P20x0 is only capable
of booting from the SPI Device controlled by Chip Select 0. External SPI multiplexing logic is
implemented on the MVME2500 to accomodate this chipset limitation.
68
MVME2500 Installation and Use (6806800L01H)
Functional Description
The MVME2500 FPGA controls the chip select to SPI devices A and B. The FPGA chip select
control is based on the Switch Bank (S2-2).
Figure 4-2
SPI Device Multiplexing Logic
At power-up, the selection of the SPI boot device is strictly based upon the Switch Bank (S2-2)
setting. Depending on the S2-2 setting, SPI_SEL0 is routed to one of two SPI devices. The
selected SPI device must contain a boot image. Once the boot image is copied into memory
and executed, the FPGA will wait and once the P20x0 will write on one bit of the FPGA
watchdog register, the FPGA will then pass through the SPI chip select from the P20x0 to SPI
device chip selects. The software can now perform read/write processes on any SPI device,
including copying from one SPI device to another.
With this flexible approach to firmware redundancy, one should always be able to recover from
a corrupt active firmware image, as long as a healthy firmware image is maintained in single
bootable SPI Device.
MVME2500 Installation and Use (6806800L01H)
69
Functional Description
The MVME2500 supports automatic switch over. If booting one device is not successful, the
watchdog will trigger the board reset and it will automatically boot on the other device.
4.6.4
Crisis Recovery
The MVME2500 provides an independent boot firmware recovery mechanism for the
operating system. The firmware recovery can be performed without leaving the firmware
environment.
During crisis recovery, the healthy boot image contained in SPI Device B is copied to SPI Device
A, replacing the corrupt boot image contained in SPI Device A.
Crisis recovery is performed as follows:
1. Power off the board.
2. Set Switch S2-2 to "ON" to point to SPI Device B (crisis image).
3. Power on the board.
4. Press "h" on the keyboard to go to the U-Boot prompt.
5. Type "moninit fru" to copy the crisis image to SPI Device A.
6. Once the U-Boot prompt is visible, power off the board.
7. Set the S2-3 back to "OFF" to point to the SPI Device A.
8. Power on the board to boot from the newly recovered image on the SPI Device A.
The board will automatically switch over if one of the devices is corrupted.
4.7
Front UART Control
The MVME2500 utilizes one of the two UART functions provided in the male micro-mini DB-9
front panel. A male-to-male micro-mini DB-9 to DB9 adapter cable is available under Emerson
Part Number SERIAL-MINI-D (30-W2400E01A) and is approximately 12 inches in length.
70
MVME2500 Installation and Use (6806800L01H)
Functional Description
Only 115200 bps and 9600 bps are supported. The default baud rate on the front panel serial
is 9600 kbps.
4.8
Rear UART Control
The MVME2500 utilizes the Exar ST16C554 quad UART (QUART) to provide four additional
ports to the RTM. These devices feature 16 bytes of transmit and receive first-in first-out (FIFO)
with selectable receive FIFO trigger levels and data rates of up to 1.5 Mbps. Each UART has a set
of registers that provide the user with operating status and control. The QUART are 8-bit
devices connected to the processor through the local bus controller using LBC chipset CS1,
CS2, CS3 and CS4.
These four serial interfaces are routed to P2 I/O for RTM accessibility. There are a total of five
serial ports available on the MVME2500.
4.9
PMC/XMC Sites
The MVME2500 hosts only one PMC/XMC site and accepts either a PMC or an XMC add-on
card. Only an XMC or a PMC may be populated at any given time as both occupy the same
physical space on the PCB. Combination PMC/XM cards are not supported by the MVME2500.
The site provides a rear PMC I/O.
The PMC site is fully compliant with the following:
1. VITA 39 –PCI-X for PMC
2. VITA 35-2000 for PMC P4 to VME P2 Connection
3. PCI Rev 2.2 for PCI Local Bus Specification.
4. PCI-X PT 2.0 for PCI-X Protocol Addendum to the PCI Local Bus Specs.
5. IEEE Standard P1386-2001 for Standard for Common Mezzanine Card Family
6. IEEE Standard P1386.1-2001 for Standard Physical and Environmental Layer for PCI
Mezzanine Card.
7. VITA 42 for XMC
8. VITA 42.3 , PCIe for XMC
MVME2500 Installation and Use (6806800L01H)
71
Functional Description
PMC/XMC sites are keyed for 3.3V PMC signaling. PMC and XMC add-on cards must have a hole
in the 3.3 V PMC keying position in order to be populated on the MVME2500. The XMC
specification accommodates this since it is expected that carrier cards will host both XMC and
PMC capable add-on cards.
MVME2500 utilizes the P20x0 x2 link PCI Express interface. It is designed such that the same
PCI-E interface is used for either PMC or XMC through Pericom’s PI2PCIE2412. It is PCI-E Gen2
compliant with four differential channel input and 2:1 MUX switch with single enable. The
enable pin is controlled by FPGA through onboard switch.
The onboard switch S2-4 determines the direction of the PCI-E MUX switch. The default setting
"OFF" routes the differential lines to the PMC. Otherwise, it is routed to the XMC connector.
4.9.1
PMC Add-on Card
The MVME2500 PMC interface utilizes IDT’s TSI384 as the PCie/PCI-X bridge. It can support up
to 8.5 Gbps (64 bits x 133 Mhz). The onboard switch S2-7 configures the TSI384 to run on
either 100 Mhz or 133 Mhz, with 133 Mhz as default.
The MVME2500 supports multi-function PMCs and processor PMCs (PrPMCs). The PMC site
has two IDSELs, two REQ/GNT pairs, and EREADY to support PrPMC as defined by VITA39.
4.9.2
XMC Add-on Card
The x2 links the PCI-E Gen 1 and is directly routed to the P15 XM connector through Pericom
MUX Switch. The onboard switch S2-4 should be set to "ON".
XMC add-on cards are required to operate at +5V or +12V (from carrier to XMC). The
MVME2500 provides +5V to the XMC VPWR (Variable Power) pins. The MVME2500 does not
provide +12V to the XMC VPWR pins. Voltage tolerances for VPWR and all carrier supplied
voltage (+3.3 V, +12 V, -12 V) are defined by the base XMC standard.
4.10
SATA Interface
The MVME2500 supports an optional 2.5" SATA HDD. The connector interface is compatible
with the Emerson SATAMNKIT, which contains the following: one SSD/HDD, one SATA board,
screws and a mounting guide. The SATA connector can support a horizontal mounted
SSD/HDD.

Gbps (SATA Gen 1). For status indicators, it has an onboard green LED, D12 and D13 for SATA
link and SATA activity status respectively.
4.11
VME Support
The MVME2500 can operate in either System Controller (SCON) mode or non-SCON mode, as
determined by the the switch setting of S1-1 and S1-2.
The P20x0 x1 link is used for the VME backplane connectivity through the Tsi384 (PCI-E/PCI-X)
and Tsi148 (PCI-X/VMEBus) bridges.
See VMEBus P1 Connector, on page 42 and VMEBus P2 Connector, on page 44 for more
information.
4.11.1 Tsi148 VME Controller
The VMEbus interface for the MVME2500 is provided by the Tsi148 VMEbus controller. The
Tsi148 provides the required VME, VME extensions, and 2eSST functions. TI
SN74VMEH22501transceivers are used to buffer the VME signals between the Tsi148 and the
VME backplane. Refer to the Tsi148 user's manual for additional details and/or programming
information.
4.12
USB
The MVME2500 processor implements a dual-role (DR) USB 2.0 compliant serial interface
engine. DC power to the front panel USB port is supplied using a USB power switch which
provides soft-start, current limiting, over current detection, and power enable for port 1.
4.13
I2C Devices
The MVME2500 utilizes one of the two I2C ports provided by the board's processor. The I2C bus
is a two-wire , serial data (SDA) and serial clock (SCL), synchronous, multi-master bi-directional
serial bus that allows data exchance between this device and other devices such as VPD, SPD,
EEPROM, RTC, temperature sensor, RTM, XMC and IDT clocking.

Count. These bits define the watchdog timer count value. When the
watchdog counter is enabled, it will count up from zero (reset value) with a 1
ms resolution until it reaches the COUNT value set by this register. Watchdog
will generate a soft reset signal if it bites.
Setting this register to 0xEA60 or 60,000 counts will provide a watchdog
timeout of 60 seconds.
External Timer Registers
The MVME2500 provides a set of tick timer registers to access the three external timers
implemented in the timers/registers PLD. These registers are 32-bit and are word writable. The
following sections describe the timer prescaler and control registers.
5.6.1
Prescaler Register
The prescaler adjust value is determined by this formula:
Prescaler Adjust = 256-(CLKIN/CLKOUT)
CLKIN is the input clock source in MHz, and CLKOUT is the desired output clock reference in
MHz.

The prescaler provides the clock required by each of the three times. The tick timers require a

5.6.3
Compare High and Low Word Registers
The tick timer counter is compared to the Compare Register. When the values are equal, the
tick timer interrupt is asserted and the overflow counter increments. If the clear-on-compare
mode is enable, the counter is also cleared. For periodic interrupts, this equation should be
used to calculate the compare value for a specific period (T):
Compare register value=T (us)
When programming the tick timer for periodic interrupt, the counter should be cleared to zero
by software and then enabled. If the counter does not initially start at zero, the time to the first
interrupt may be longer or shorter than expected. Note that the rollover time for the counter
is 71.6 minutes.
Since the processor is 16-bits and the tick timer is 32-bits, the compare register was split in half.
Accessing the whole register will require two transactions.

Boot System
6.1
Overview
The MVME2500 uses Das U-Boot, a boot loader software based on the GNU Public License. It
boots the blade and is the first software to be executed after the system is powered on.
Its main functions are:

Initialize the hardware

Pass boot parameters to the Linux kernel

Start the Linux kernel

Update Linux kernel and U-Boot images
This section describes U-Boot features and procedures that are specific to the MVME2500. For
general information on U-Boot, see http://www.denx.de/wiki/UBoot/WebHome.
6.2
Accessing U-Boot
1. Connect the board to a computer with a serial interface connector and a terminal emulation
software running on it. The serial connector of the board is found on the face plate.
2. Configure the terminal software to use the access parameters that are specified in U-Boot.
By default, the access parameters are as follows:

Baud rate: 9600

PC ANSI

8 data bits

No parity

1 stop bit
These serial access parameters are the default values. These can be changed from within the
U-Boot. For details, refer to the U-Boot documentation.
3. Boot the MVME2500.
4. When prompted, press the "h" key.
MVME2500 Installation and Use (6806800L01H)
103
Boot System
U-Boot aborts the boot sequence and enters into a command line interface mode.
Enter the command setenv bootdelay -1; saveenv to disable the U-Boot auto-boot
feature and let the U-Boot directly enter the command line interface after the next
reboot/power up.
6.3
Boot Options
6.3.1
Booting from a Network
In this mode, U-Boot downloads and boots the Linux kernel from an external TFTP server and
mounts a root file system located on a network server.
1. Make sure that the kernel, dtb, and ramdisk are accessible to the board from the
TFTP server.
2. Configure U-Boot environment variables:

Using the Persistent Memory Feature
Persistent memory means that the RAM's memory is not deleted during a reset. Power cycling,
or by temporarily removing the power and then powering up the blade again, will delete the
memory content. Persistent memory feature is enabled by default.
This feature can be useful in many situations, including:

Analyzing kernel logs after a Linux kernel panic

Defining a particular memory region for the persistent storage of application specific data
Analyzing Kernel Log Files after a Kernel Panic
When a board that is running the Linux OS indicates a kernel panic, issue a reset (through the
face plate button, for example) to analyze the cause, then subsequently analyze kernel log files.
The persistent memory feature keeps the log files available in the memory.
To analyze the kernel log files:
1. Issue a reset.
2. Connect to U-Boot. For more information, see Accessing U-Boot on page 103.
3. Enter the following command to obtain memory addresses of the kernel log
files:.locate_kernel_log (1)
The memory addresses of any found kernel log files will be displayed.
4. Enter the following command to display the kernel logfile at any of these memory
addresses: .printf (<memory address>)
The persistent memory is useful in application-specific data storage. The standard U-Boot
variable pram can be used to reserve a memory region at the end of the physical memory to
prevent it from being overwritten. U-Boot reports less memory to the Linux kernel through the
mem parameter, indicating that the operating system should not use it either.
For more information, see the U-Boot documentation.

Other Software Considerations
This section provides programming information in relation to various board components.
7.6.1
MRAM
The MVME2500 provides 512 K bytes of fast, non-volatile storage in the form of
Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory (MRAM). The MRAM is directly accessible by
software using processor load and store instructions similar to the DRAM. The difference is that
the MRAM retains its contents even if the board is power cycled. The MRAM is accessed through
the LBC.
7.6.2
Real Time Clock
The MVME2500 provides a battery backed-up DS1375 Real Time Clock (RTC) chip. The RTC
chip provides time keeping and alarm interrupts. It is an I2C device and is accessed through the
I2C bus address at 0x68.
7.6.3
Quad UART
The MVME2500 console RS232 port is driven by the UART built into the P20x0 QorIQ chip.
Additionally, the MVME2500 has a Quad UART chip which provides four additional 16550
compatible UART. These additional UART are internally accessed through the LBC bus. The
Quad UART chip clock input (which is internally divided to generate the baud rate) is 1.8432
MHz. The four UART physically connect to RS232 DB9 serial ports through the RTM.

Clock Distribution
The clock function generates and distributes all of the clocks required for system operation.
The ICS9FG108 is used to generate all the required PCI-E clocks. The 25 MHz clocks for the
Ethernet PHY and SATA bridge are supplied by ICS83905. Most of the QorIQ P2020 clocks are
generated by ICS840S07I chip. Additional clocks required by individual devices are generated
near the devices using individual oscillators. The following table lists the clocks required on the
MVME2500 along with the frequency and source.
