NVIDIA Tegra Boot and Power Management Processor (BPMP)
The BPMP is a specific processor in Tegra chip, which is designed for
booting process handling and offloading the power management, clock
management, and reset control tasks from the CPU. The binding document
defines the resources that would be used by the BPMP firmware driver,
which can create the interprocessor communication (IPC) between the CPU
and BPMP.
Required properties:
- compatible
Array of strings
One of:
- "nvidia,tegra186-bpmp"
- mboxes : The phandle of mailbox controller and the mailbox specifier.
- shmem : List of the phandle of the TX and RX shared memory area that
the IPC between CPU and BPMP is based on.
- #clock-cells : Should be 1.
- #power-domain-cells : Should be 1.
- #reset-cells : Should be 1.
This node is a mailbox consumer. See the following files for details of
the mailbox subsystem, and the specifiers implemented by the relevant
- .../mailbox/mailbox.txt
- .../mailbox/nvidia,tegra186-hsp.txt
This node is a clock, power domain, and reset provider. See the following
files for general documentation of those features, and the specifiers
implemented by this node:
- .../clock/clock-bindings.txt
- <dt-bindings/clock/tegra186-clock.h>
- ../power/power_domain.txt
- <dt-bindings/power/tegra186-powergate.h>
- .../reset/reset.txt
- <dt-bindings/reset/tegra186-reset.h>
The BPMP implements some services which must be represented by separate nodes.
For example, it can provide access to certain I2C controllers, and the I2C
bindings represent each I2C controller as a device tree node. Such nodes should
be nested directly inside the main BPMP node.
Software can determine whether a child node of the BPMP node represents a device
by checking for a compatible property. Any node with a compatible property
represents a device that can be instantiated. Nodes without a compatible
property may be used to provide configuration information regarding the BPMP
itself, although no such configuration nodes are currently defined by this
The BPMP firmware defines no single global name-/numbering-space for such
services. Put another way, the numbering scheme for I2C buses is distinct from
the numbering scheme for any other service the BPMP may provide (e.g. a future
hypothetical SPI bus service). As such, child device nodes will have no reg
property, and the BPMP node will have no #address-cells or #size-cells property.
The shared memory bindings for BPMP
The shared memory area for the IPC TX and RX between CPU and BPMP are
predefined and work on top of sysram, which is an SRAM inside the chip.
See ".../sram/sram.txt" for the bindings.
