Boot Switch Setting
Make sure On-Board Switch (SW2) is set properly as shown below image.
SW1-Boot Selection Switch
Table 1: Boot Media Switch Settings
*POS4 for selecting USB Top port or USB OTG. To select USB OTG, POS4 should be ON.
Debug Port Setting
Connect Type A end of TTL-232R-RPI cable to PC and 3pin (100mil) Berg House end of TTL-232R-RPI cable to Debug UART Header (J5) as shown below.
How To Configure
Use one of the terminal application depending on the operating system of the host machine:
On the command prompt of the Linux host machine, run the following command to determine the port number:
$ ls /dev/ttyUSB*
The smaller number is for Arm® Cortex®-A53 core and the bigger number is for Arm® Cortex ®-M4 core.
Use the following commands to install and run the serial communication program (minicom as an example):
- Install Minicom using Ubuntu package manager.
$ sudo apt-get install minicom
- Launch Minicom using a console window using the port number determined earlier.
$ sudo minicom -s
- Configure Minicom as show in below figure
Next step is to Power ON the board.
Connect the 12V power supply plug to the power connector (J3) of the iW-RainboW-G53S-Renesas RZ/G2UL or RZ/A3UL or RZ/Five OSM-based SBC as shown below and switch ON the power supply.
Once power is applied to the SBC, the LEDs in the iW-RainboW-G53S-Renesas RZ/G2UL or RZ/A3UL or RZ/Five OSM-based SBC will glow as shown in the image below.
- Do not try to connect any other Power Supply other than supplied along with iW-RainboW-G53S-Renesas RZ/G2UL or RZ/A3UL or RZ/Five OSM-based SBC
- Contact iWave, if power LEDs are not glowing.
User must go through “Software User Guide” and get familiar with software section of iW-RainboW-G53S-Renesas RZ/G2UL or RZ/A3UL or RZ/Five based SBC.
Operating System Support
Power is applied to the SBC & Once the boot get success, depending upon the supported Operating systems and boot loader on particular delivery, boot messages being prompted in the terminal window as shown below. Press Enter key in terminal and done with test environment setup on particular delivery.
