The T4240QDS is a high-performance computing evaluation, development and test
platform supporting the T4240 QorIQ™ Power Architecture™ processor. T4240QDS is
optimized to support the high-bandwidth DDR3 memory ports, as well as the
highly-configurable SerDes ports. The system is lead-free and RoHS-compliant.

Two Serial port
Four I2C ports
XFI is supported on T4QDS-XFI board which removed slot3 and routed
four Lanes A/B/C/D to a SFP+ cages, which to house fiber cable or
direct attach cable(copper), the copper cable is used to emulate
10GBASE-KR scenario.
So, for XFI usage, there are two scenarios, one will use fiber cable,
another will use copper cable. An hwconfig env "fsl_10gkr_copper" is
introduced to indicate a XFI port will use copper cable, and U-boot
will fixup the dtb accordingly.
It's used as: fsl_10gkr_copper:<10g_mac_name>
The <10g_mac_name> can be fm1_10g1, fm1_10g2, fm2_10g1, fm2_10g2, they
do not have to be coexist in hwconfig. If a MAC is listed in the env
"fsl_10gkr_copper", it will use copper cable, otherwise, fiber cable
will be used by default.
for ex. set "fsl_10gkr_copper:fm1_10g1,fm1_10g2,fm2_10g1,fm2_10g2" in
hwconfig, then both four XFI ports will use copper cable.
set "fsl_10gkr_copper:fm1_10g1,fm1_10g2" in hwconfig, then first two
XFI ports will use copper cable, the other two XFI ports will use fiber

The physical address of the last (boot page translation) varies with the actual DDR size.
Voltage ID and VDD override
T4240 has a VID feature. U-boot reads the VID efuses and adjust the voltage
accordingly. The voltage can also be override by command vdd_override. The
syntax is
vdd_override <voltage in mV>, eg. 1050 is for 1.050v.
Upon success, the actual voltage will be read back. The value is checked
for safety and any invalid value will not adjust the voltage.
Another way to override VDD is to use environmental variable, in case of using
command is too late for some debugging. The syntax is
setenv t4240qds_vdd_mv <voltage in mV>
The override voltage takes effect when booting.
Note: voltage adjustment needs to be done step by step. Changing voltage too
rapidly may cause current surge. The voltage stepping is done by software.
Users can set the final voltage directly.
2-stage NAND/SD boot loader
PBL initializes the internal SRAM and copy SPL(160K) in SRAM.
SPL further initialise DDR using SPD and environment variables
and copy u-boot(768 KB) from NAND/SD device to DDR.
Finally SPL transers control to u-boot for futher booting.
SPL has following features:
- Executes within 256K
- No relocation required
