Trusted Firmware-A (TF-A) implements the EL3 firmware layer for QTI SC7180, SC7280.

7.31.1. Boot Trace

Bootrom –> BL1/BL2 –> BL31 –> BL33 –> Linux kernel

BL1/2 and BL33 can currently be supplied from Coreboot + Depthcharge

7.31.2. How to build Code Locations

  • Trusted Firmware-A: link Build Procedure

QTI SoC expects TF-A’s BL31 to get integrated with other boot software Coreboot, so only bl31.elf need to get build from the TF-A repository.

The build command looks like

make CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- PLAT=sc7180 COREBOOT=1

update value of CROSS_COMPILE argument with your cross-compilation toolchain.

Additional QTISECLIB_PATH=<path to qtiseclib> can be added in build command. if QTISECLIB_PATH is not added in build command stub implementation of qtiseclib is picked. qtiseclib with stub implementation doesn’t boot device. This was added to satisfy compilation.

QTISELIB for SC7180 is available at link QTISELIB for SC7280 is available at link
