---+!! Archos Ondio (the smallest Rockbox hardware) %TOC% ---++ About the box The Ondio is Archos' flash player. No harddisk, 128 MB of internal flash, expandable by plugging a MultiMediaCard (MMC). It is based on the same SH platform as the Jukebox Player/Recorder models, so we've been able to adapt Rockbox to it. For details, see the [[http://www.minidisc.org/manuals/archos/archos_ondio.pdf][Ondio User Manual]] There are two different models of the Ondio: The Ondio 128 FM Recorder, featuring a FM radio, and being able to record from that as well as from a built-in microphone and a line input, and the Ondio 128 SP, which does neither have recording nor a radio. * So small, but already running Rockbox: <br /> <img src="%ATTACHURLPATH%/comparison.jpg" alt="comparison.jpg" width="534" height="450" /> ---++ Status of the rockbox port / How you can help * All meaningful Rockbox features are supported. * Full hotswap support for MMC. Swapping MMCs on the fly is both supported in USB mode and in rockbox itself. * Multivolume support in rockbox. A unix-like approach allows simultaneous access to the internal flash and an MMC, using the internal flash as the root file system and mounting MMCs under /<MMC1> * All reasonable plugins are adapted, calendar and clock are missing because the Ondio has no RTC (real time clock). So what could *you* do to help us? We are still interested in some information about different Ondio hardware versions. You could do the following: * Install a current [[http://www.rockbox.org/daily.shtml][daily build]] of rockbox on your Ondio * Disconnect USB and start using rockbox. * In case you discover any bugs, please report them; preferably using the patch tracker * *Does your Ondio have a display backlight??* If yes, please report that, preferably with the exact model name and a photo. We did not find any Ondio that actually has a factory-installed backlight so far, in spite of being prepared on all PCBs we've seen. There's a backlight mod described [[OndioBacklight ][here]]. ---++ View Inside | *Front of PCB, with LCD in place* ||| | Ondio FMR. This had the LCD glued on top of the CPU | Ondio SP.

"Hidden" buttons are a MMC card present switch and the USB detection. See KeymapOndio for how they are used in the Rockbox applications. The assignment to the analog ports and the values are different, so it needs an adjusted driver. Direction keys are all on AN4, giving various reading depending on which key is pressed. MMC, USB, Menu and On/Off are "digitally" connected to AN0, AN1, AN2 and AN3, respectively. The ranges represent the readings from 1 Ondio FMR and 1 Ondio SP | | *no card* | *MMC inserted* | | *Port AN0 value* | 3FF | 001 | | | *no USB* | *USB plugged* | | *Port AN1 value* | 3FF | 003 | | | *no key* | *Menu* | | *Port AN2 value* | 001 | 3FF | | | *no key* | *On/Off* | | *Port AN3 value* | 240..27C | 003 | | | *no key* | *Up* | *Down* | *Left* | *Right* | | *Port AN4 value* | 001 | 1EC..1FB | 142..14E | 338..353 | 292..2A7 | ---++ Port pin assignment Many pins have the same mapping as our "classic" FM JBR, the one most similar to the Ondio. | *Port pin* | *CPU function* | *Ondio usage* | *remark* | *JBR FM* | | PA0 | /CS4 | MAS Parallel Port (for recording) | | same | | PA1 | /RAS Out | DRAM control | | same | | PA2 | GP Out | FM tuner power (low active) | just prepared, transistor is missing | new | | PA3 | GP Out | Card detect (low active) | to USB bridge, pin18 | new | | PA4 | /WR Out | Bus write signal | | same | | PA5 | GP Out | USB Enable (1=enable) | | was PA10 | | PA6 | /RD Out | Bus read signal | | same | | PA7 | GP Out | internal MMC flash reset | low active | new | | PA8 | GP Out | MAS POR Reset, low active | directly connected to MAS Pin 9 | same | | PA9 | GP Out | MMC chip select | | new | | PA10 | GP Out | internal flash chip select | unconfirmed (BGA) | new | | PA11 | GP Out | MAS PR DMA Request | | same | | PA12 | GP Out | enable internal MMC clock (polarity varies) | to AC08/AC32, pin 5 | new | | PA13 | /IRQ1 | ready/busy from internal flash | unconfirmed (BGA), also via resistor to MMC pin 9 | new | | PA14 | GP Out | backlight provision | goes to empty footprint below CPU | new | | PA15 | /IRQ3 | MAS Demand IRQ, start demand | inverted from MAS pin 29 | same | | | | | | | | PB0 | GP Out | LCD Serial Data | to FM board, too, (n.c.with Philips tuner) | same | | PB1 | GP Out | LCD Serial Clock / FM Radio Serial Clock | to FM I2C clk | same | | PB2 | GP Out | LCD Data Select (1=data) | | same | | PB3 | GP Out | LCD Chip Select (0=active) / FM Radio BUSENABLE (1 = active) | | same | | PB4 | GP I/O | FM Radio I2C Data | | almost | | PB5 | GP Out | Main power control (0=shut off) | | same | | PB6 | GP Out | I2C Clock | | was PB13 | | PB7 | GP I/O | I2C Data | | same | | PB8 | GP Out | MAS SIBI | to MAS pin 51, purpose unknown? | new | | PB9 | <nop>TxD0 | MAS Serial link for MP3 data | | same | | PB10 | <nop>RxD1 | SPI data read from MMC | | new | | PB11 | <nop>TxD1 | SPI data write to MMC | | new | | PB12 | SCK0 | MAS Serial Clock for MP3 data | | same | | PB13 | SCK1 | SPI clock to MMC | | new | | PB14 | /IRQ6 | MAS Demand IRQ, stop demand | | same | | PB15 | GP In | MAS PRTW input (0=ready) | | same | | | | | | | | PC0 | AN0 | MMC presence switch | | new | | PC1 | AN1 | USB detection | | same | | PC2 | AN2 | Menu button | | was OFF | | PC3 | AN3 | On/Off button | | was ON | | PC4 | AN4 | direction keys | | similar | | PC5 | AN5 | USB bridge activity | to bridge, pin 27 | new | | PC6 | AN6 | Power good | to SP6201, pin 4 | new | | PC7 | AN7 | Battery voltage | 4.890 volt reads as 0x3FE | was AN6 | ---++ The MMC clock circuit (74AC08 / 74AC32) Three of the gates are used as a little logic to enable/disable the clock for internal and external MMC.

The 2-pin one is for power. Its Vcc is prepared to be switched via PA2, but the power transistor is missing on my board. Instead, it is bridged via a zero ohm resistor to general Vcc (always on). Perhaps this saved a few cents or tuner standby power is neglible. The 10-pin header has the following pinout (viewed on top of tuner board, pin 1 is marked with a square pad): | *comment* | *connection* | *pin* | | *pin* | *connection* | *comment* | | | Phone right | 2 | | 1 | Phone left | | | | Tuner left | 4 | | 3 | Tuner right | | | PB1 | I2C clock | 6 | | 5 | BUSENABLE | PB3 | | PB4 | I2C data | 8 | | 7 | n.c. | PB0 | | | ON switch | 10 | | 9 | Gnd | | ---++ HW mask bits and their meanings The hardware mask consists of 2 bytes, but the second byte seems to be unused.

This file is not a normal firmware update, if you run it it shows some strings "RAZ" and" PRG" and so on and writes directly in the flash without warning! After shutdown you only see the "removable disks" in your PC, but you cannot access it. It's possible to rescue such a box using the [[UartBoot][UART boot mod]] -- JensArnold --- CategoryFrontpage: Archos Ondio SP/FM port index [Ports]
