Device-Tree bindings for LVDS Display Bridge (ldb)
LVDS Display Bridge
The LVDS Display Bridge device tree node contains up to two lvds-channel
nodes describing each of the two LVDS encoder channels of the bridge.
Required properties:
- #address-cells : should be <1>
- #size-cells : should be <0>
- compatible : should be "fsl,imx53-ldb" or "fsl,imx6q-ldb" or
"fsl,imx8qm-ldb" or "fsl,imx8qxp-ldb".
All LDB versions are similar.
i.MX6q/dl has an additional multiplexer in the front to select
any of the two or four IPU display interfaces as input for each
LVDS channel.
i.MX8qm LDB supports 10bit RGB input and needs an additional
i.MX8qxp LDB only supports one LVDS encoder channel(either
channel0 or channel1).
- gpr : should be <&gpr> on i.MX53 and i.MX6q.
The phandle points to the iomuxc-gpr region containing the LVDS
control register.
- clocks, clock-names : phandles to the LDB divider and selector clocks and to
the display interface selector clocks, as described in
The following clocks are expected on i.MX53:
"di0_pll" - LDB LVDS channel 0 mux
"di1_pll" - LDB LVDS channel 1 mux
"di0" - LDB LVDS channel 0 gate
"di1" - LDB LVDS channel 1 gate
"di0_sel" - IPU1 DI0 mux
"di1_sel" - IPU1 DI1 mux
On i.MX6q the following additional clocks are needed:
"di2_sel" - IPU2 DI0 mux
"di3_sel" - IPU2 DI1 mux
The following clocks are expected on i.MX8qm:
"pixel" - pixel clock
"bypass" - bypass clock
The needed clock numbers for each are documented in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/clock/imx5-clock.txt, and in
- power-domains : phandle pointing to power domain, only required by i.MX8qm and
Optional properties:
- pinctrl-names : should be "default" on i.MX53, not used on i.MX6q, i.MX8qm
and i.MX8qxp
- pinctrl-0 : a phandle pointing to LVDS pin settings on i.MX53,
not used on i.MX6q, i.MX8qm and i.MX8qxp
- fsl,dual-channel : boolean. if it exists, only LVDS channel 0 should
be configured - one input will be distributed on both outputs in dual
channel mode
Currently, i.MX8qxp doesn't support dual channel mode.
LVDS Channel
Each LVDS Channel has to contain either an of graph link to a panel device node
or a display-timings node that describes the video timings for the connected
LVDS display as well as the fsl,data-mapping and fsl,data-width properties.
Required properties:
- reg : should be <0> or <1>
- port: Input and output port nodes with endpoint definitions as defined in
On i.MX5, the internal two-input-multiplexer is used. Due to hardware
limitations, only one input port (port@[0,1]) can be used for each channel
(lvds-channel@[0,1], respectively).
On i.MX6, there should be four input ports (port@[0-3]) that correspond
to the four LVDS multiplexer inputs.
On i.MX8qm, the two channels of LDB connect to one display interface of DPU.
A single output port (port@2 on i.MX5, port@4 on i.MX6, port@1 on i.MX8qm
and i.MX8qxp) must be connected to a panel input port or a bridge input port.
Optionally, the output port can be left out if display-timings are used
- phys: the phandle for the LVDS PHY device. Valid only on i.MX8qm and
- phy-names: should be "ldb_phy". Valid only on i.MX8qm and i.MX8qxp.
Optional properties (required if display-timings are used):
- ddc-i2c-bus: phandle of an I2C controller used for DDC EDID probing
- display-timings : A node that describes the display timings as defined in
- fsl,data-mapping : should be "spwg" or "jeida"
This describes how the color bits are laid out in the
serialized LVDS signal.
- fsl,data-width : should be <18> or <24>
Additionally, <30> for i.MX8qm.
