iriver E150 information


The device has 8MB of sdram. The chip is Zentel A2V64S40CTP-G6.


Contrary to the schematic, my e150 4Gb unit uses LV24230 FM IC from Sanyo.


NAND bootloader code seems to support three different lcd types but lcm.drv driver has support for only one type which according to disassembly seems to be HX8347-D lcd controller in rgb565 mode with 16bit parallel interface.

GPIO A16 drives lcd panel reset signal.

Backlight is controlled by atj213x internal PWM generator. Leds cathodes are connected to RT9300 current sink and PWM signal from SoC is connected to EN signal of RT9300.


Based on disassembly (not checked on target yet)

port bit dir description
GPIOA 8 IN power (active high?)
GPIOA 10 IN hold (active low?)
GPIOA 12 IN vol+
GPIOA 16 OUT lcd controller reset (active low)

GPIOB 31 IN vol-

Other 5 control keys seems to be connected to 4-bit LRADC.

USB core

USB core seems to be CAST cusb2 or cusb2-otg IP core. Datasheet is unavailable. This IP core (but with varying synthesis options enabled) is also used in Ralink RT3883, RT3352, MT7620, RT5350 SoCs. There is linux driver relased which is some source of information. The best matching documentation source is header file from atj2127 SDK. Cypress EZ-USB FX2 SoC also uses core which bears some similarities but register map is completely different.

The usb module base address is 0x100e0000 (0xb00e0000 kseg1 address). All offsets below are in respect to this base address. Registers are 8bit wide with exception of fifos which can be accessed in 32bit chunks.

There are total of 8 dma channels. Channels 0-3 utilize regular AHB bus, channels 4-7 use separate 'special' bus. DMA section of the datasheet doesn't mention peripheral select bits in mode registers. According to ds there are 6 'special' peripherals: SDRAM, IRAM, NAND, SD, OTG, LCM. DAC and ADC use regular AHB/APB bus. Here are my findings based on disassembly and other sources.

DTRG and STRG meaning
0x06 DAC
0x10 SDRAM
0x11 IRAM
0x14 NAND
0x16 SD
0x17 OTG
0x18 LCM


For now I am exploring the hardware. I can run small snippets of code, poke here and there.

  • adfuload can be used to upload code for execution
  • interrupts work
  • timers and watchdog work
  • backlight is working
  • basic lcd support
  • partial support for USB control transfers (enumeration fails at some point)
