Samsung GH7 Quad Core 64-bit ARM SoC Code Submitted to Linux

February 20th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Following my post about Samsung Exynos 5260 hexa core processor, I’ve been informed that some other patches have been submitted about Samsung GH7 ARMv8 SoC, which should be the other processor announced at MWC 2014.

Samsung_SH7_linuxA look at the device tree file shows four ARMv8 cores:

+/ {
+	model = "SAMSUNG GH7";
+	compatible = "samsung,gh7";
+	interrupt-parent = <&gic>;
+	#address-cells = <2>;
+	#size-cells = <2>;
+
+	cpus {
+		#address-cells = <2>;
+		#size-cells = <0>;
+
+		cpu@000 {
+			device_type = "cpu";
+			compatible = "arm,armv8";
+			reg = <0x0 0x000>;
+			enable-method = "spin-table";
+			cpu-release-addr = <0x0 0x8000fff8>;
+		};
+		cpu@001 {
+			device_type = "cpu";
+			compatible = "arm,armv8";
+			reg = <0x0 0x001>;
+			enable-method = "spin-table";
+			cpu-release-addr = <0x0 0x8000fff8>;
+		};
+		cpu@002 {
+			device_type = "cpu";
+			compatible = "arm,armv8";
+			reg = <0x0 0x002>;
+			enable-method = "spin-table";
+			cpu-release-addr = <0x0 0x8000fff8>;
+		};
+		cpu@003 {
+			device_type = "cpu";
+			compatible = "arm,armv8";
+			reg = <0x0 0x003>;
+			enable-method = "spin-table";
+			cpu-release-addr = <0x0 0x8000fff8>;
+		};
+	};

The patch also include code for Samsung SSDK-GH7 board with 2GB RAM. That’s about all we know for now.

Thanks to David for the tip.

    Cool! Now just see if there will be any ARMv8 future Arndale board for it.
