EBC Exercise 11 gpio Polling and InterruptsEmbedded Linux Class by Mark A. These are rather easy ways to work with gpio; however they tend to be slow and require a lot of the CPU. In this exercise we explore using sysfs via C. We also see how using interrupts can greatly reduce the CPU usage and increase our max output speed. Example of GPIO access from within a C program is a nice example of how it's done, but the page is gone. I've cleaned it up a bit and put a copy called togglegpio. If your git repository is set up just:. This program is really interrupt based. When the usleep command is run, the process suspends until the correct time has elapsed. Other processes are allowed to run. When the time is up the CPU is interrupted and our process is allowed to continue. Next we want to write some code that will read one gpio pin and copy its value to another. We could modify togglegpio. A better approach is to let the OS tell you when the input has changed. In a traditional microprocessor one would set up the input pin to interrupt the processor when its input value has changed. We'll do something similar here. The folks at RidgeRun have a nice example of how this is done. Look over the example. The first part should be familiar. The new stuff starts here. It describes how to use the poll command to wait until the gpio pin has changed. Your process will block i. I've put a modified copy of gpio-int-test. Get it. Study it.
GPIO Programming: Using the sysfs Interface
The pin multiplexing, as well as the GPIO specific configuration, is performed by the Linux kernel drivers using the information from the rootfs. Let's edit this file and add the information about the above GPIO:. After applying the above changes to the rootfs. The first step is to add export the pin to the GPIO array and define it as an input using its index 5 is this example. This is done as follows:. Now, all is ready to read the value of the pin. First, connect the pin P9. Next, break the connection of P9. To test this pin as output, disconnect everything from it and attach a voltemeter instead. Change the direction don't need to export a pin that is already exported in this session :. Now run the following shell commands to turn the gpio on and off at a 1Hz frequency, observe the alternating values with the voltmeter:. Refer to the rootfs. In Linux, you may access GPIOs using different approaches, not only the ones described in this application note above. Here are some external links that might be usefull if you decide to try an alternative approach. To work with GPIOs from the user space, there are the following possibilities:.

Of course it is in user space. It is not running in the kernel. You just need to have access privileges. You should recheck your terminology. But when I use a voltage meter it shows the correct voltage. These gpio devices are not always automatic generated. You need to configure or "patch" the kernel for allow them to work as expected. Cause polling will kill the performance from my application. Surely not at user level. You need to develop your own module running at kernel level for manage interrupt. Regarding the possibilty to have interrupt connected to gpio it depends from your hardware. If the cpu will allow it you'll have to configure it as indicated by datasheet. Really useful information, Thanks. Sorry but you need to check the error code generated by the open fail operation. The error "permission denied" mean your script is executed under some user that doesn't have enough privileges to access gpio fields. I don't know how to access that pin and how to toggle that pin. Thanks, Naveen. You have to check your hardware datasheet or how your kernel internally manage to number the GPIO you need Hi, Excellent article. How can I find out which module has reserved a reserved gpio. I have posted a portion of the output below. Sorry but I don't know if there is a way to know which module reserved GPIO, neved had this problem and currently I don't know how to help you
