Firmware Upgrades Per Hardware Target

This document should be referenced when changing hardware targets. Each revision of the AMDC hardware is slightly different, so the user code might need to be modified. Note that the hardware targets are almost interchangable, minus the small changes listed below.

Most changes occur automatically in the core firmware by simplying defineing the appropriate hardware target in the usr/user_config.h file.

For example, to target AMDC REV D hardware, make sure the following code exists in your usr/user_config.h file:

// Set hardware target to AMDC REV D
#define USER_CONFIG_HARDWARE_TARGET AMDC_REV_D

The supported targets are: AMDC_REV_D and AMDC_REV_E.

AMDC REV D

This is the baseline supported hardware target.

This hardware revision contains major errata (documented here), which prompted a new revision. The errata does not affect the firmware operation.

Compile code with AMDC_REV_D as the hardware target.

AMDC REV E

This is the latest hardware target and is actively supported.

Compile code with AMDC_REV_E as the hardware target.
