That’s all for tonight. This time I have had more luck and as you can see the 96 bit register is probably the boundary scan chain. Technically support for Lexra processors without adding emulation of these instructions would be possible but the question is how much sense it would make as some software may rely on it fairly heavily. If you don’t have access to one then the schematic is provided freely for it here. Cavnex have kindly sent me their parallel port JTAG interface and their own software that is Lexra compatible!

Realtek RTL8181 JTAGing
Lexra therefore choose to implement these instructions by software emulation. As can be seen below there are too many registers missing. With the Xilinx unit I noticed there seemed to be inordinately short data chains ie Retrieved from ” http: You can see in the picture below that I had to solder fine green wire onto a single inline header. Pin when pulled to ground sets the processor into JTAG mode.
Several key employees of Lexra founded the digital video core company Ultra Data Corporationthe intellectual property assets of which have since been acquired. This would ryl8181 a faster and cheaper way than using slow old JTAG to program the boards. Later the LX core added hardware multithreading. In the next week or so I hope to dig a little further with this tool so see what I can discover.
Which means it isn’t clear if Linux can or cannot rgl8181 emulate the instructions. Jonah Probell has written a history of Lexra Contents.
This resulted in the end of Lexra’s former products and so at this time there also seems to be little interest in actually adding Linux support.
This time I have had more luck and as you can see the 96 bit register is probably the boundary scan chain. Lexra did implement a bit variant of the MIPS architecture. When you run jtag make sure you have privileges to the parallel rtk8181 and make sure the parallel port is running in EPP mode rt8l181 the default case but rt8181 be set in your BIOS.
No doubt some code will have to be written to support the RTL properly, but the best thing would be the BSDL file from Realtek which would be an enourmous help and allow things like FLASH reprogramming and possibly debugging with gdb.

Type “quit” to exit! You can see this on the clearly in the photo. Type “help” for help. Following is the output from jtag. Cavnex have kindly sent me their parallel port JTAG interface and their own software that is Lexra compatible! All the parts should be available at a good electronics store such as Jaycar I’ll have to give the pod back and make one up myself. Today Lexra is a defunct company. I got my mitts on a real life Macraigor parallel port Wiggler and reran the jtag program and got some more positive results.
Technically support for Lexra processors without adding emulation of these instructions would be possible but the question is how much sense it would make as some software may rely on it fairly heavily.

I have used a Minitar AP board that someone had given me after accidentally overwriting the bootblock with the wrong flash command. JTAG Tools may damage your hardware!
This weekend should bring some interesting results. This is a shame. The interface is a bog standard IEEE After searching with a multimeter I could not find where the JTAG pins rtl181 out to on the PCB – I would have expected a bunch of pads or holes for an unused header to provide easy access to the signals.
That’s all for tonight.
