DisplayPort DPCD override

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm looking for some example of DPCD override registers use (page 29, 30, 31, PG233). I want to force DP link to 2.7 Gbps and/or 2 lanes instead of 4, but I'm not sure when should I do this during IP core init. Should I just do it as soon as possible (beginning of init)?

Thanks

Srdjan

Hi @srdjan.opacic 

It might work but it is not the best solution. You might need to make sure that the driver is not re-writting the value based on the HW configuration (it might require to updated the drivers).

Is there a reason why you are not limiting the capabilities in the HW?

Hi @florentw ,

SW configuration seems more flexible, but if it is possible that driver will overwrite them, I'll use HW limitations instead. How can I force DP to work with maximum 2.7 Gbps? I see no such setting in Vivado IP configuration.

For reference, I'm using Vivado 2017.3.1, DP RX subsystem v2.1. DP port configuration 4x5.4Gbps lanes.

Thanks

Sorry, forgot about that option.

Thanks
