Broadcom BCM958401M2

Overview

The Broadcom BCM958401M2 board utilizes the Valkyrie BCM58400 SoC to provide support for PCIe offload engine functionality.

Hardware

The BCM958401M2 is a PCIe card with the following physical features:

  • PCIe Gen3 interface

  • RS232 UART (optionally populated)

  • JTAG (optionally populated)

Supported Features

The Broadcom BCM958401M2 board configuration supports the following hardware features:

Interface

Controller

Driver/Component

NVIC

on-chip

nested vectored interrupt controller

UART

on-chip

serial port

Other hardware features are not supported by the Zephyr kernel.

The default configuration can be found in the defconfig file:

boards/arm/bcm958401m2/bcm958401m2_defconfig

Connections and IOs

Programming and Debugging

Flashing

The flash on board is not supported by Zephyr at this time. Board is booted over PCIe interface.

Debugging

The bcm958401m2 board includes pads for soldering a JTAG connector. Zephyr applications running on the M7 core can also be tested by observing UART console output.
