Vim2 bootup process


#1

hi. I am curious about the whole boot up process. First, I talk about the hardware startup. Dc input–>clock start. Next the firmware startup. Bootrom–>cpu–>uboot–>kernel–>OS. Is the process start like this except the MCU? How about the MCU? Where does the boot rom stored? Am I missing anything? I want to know as detail as possible. I would appreciate it if anyone can help me out.

Yes, the booting process is right, you can check VIM2 Schematic for the details:

The MCU of VIMs is design to achive both power management and other purpuses.

I have seen this graphic in the Schematic. But they are in abbreviation. And I don’t understand some of the meaning. And I can’t find the definition of those abbreviation.


#4

So your device still not working now, right?


#5

No my device is working right now. But I am curious about it. I have downloaded this pdf document but I didn’t find the abbreviation meaning.


#6

Might need some reading on the Schematic, and you can just post with detail question if you confuse on something :slight_smile:

Thanks
