7.40. Xilinx Versal

Trusted Firmware-A implements the EL3 firmware layer for Xilinx Versal. The platform only uses the runtime part of TF-A as Xilinx Versal already has a BootROM (BL1) and PMC FW (BL2).

BL31 is TF-A. BL32 is an optional Secure Payload. BL33 is the non-secure world software (U-Boot, Linux etc).

To build: `bash make RESET_TO_BL31=1 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-none-elf- PLAT=versal bl31 `

To build ATF for different platform (supported are “silicon”(default) and “versal_virt”) `bash make RESET_TO_BL31=1 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-none-elf- PLAT=versal VERSAL_PLATFORM=versal_virt bl31 `

To build bl32 TSP you have to rebuild bl31 too `bash make CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-none-elf- PLAT=versal SPD=tspd RESET_TO_BL31=1 bl31 bl32 `

To build TF-A for JTAG DCC console `bash make RESET_TO_BL31=1 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-none-elf- PLAT=versal bl31 VERSAL_CONSOLE=dcc `

To build TF-A with Errata management interface `bash make RESET_TO_BL31=1 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-none-elf- PLAT=versal bl31 ERRATA_ABI_SUPPORT=1 `

To build TF-A with Straight-Line Speculation(SLS) `bash make RESET_TO_BL31=1 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-none-elf- PLAT=versal bl31 HARDEN_SLS_ALL=1 `

7.40.1. Xilinx Versal platform specific build options

  • VERSAL_ATF_MEM_BASE: Specifies the base address of the bl31 binary.

    • 7 : SGI 7

7.40.2. # PLM->TF-A Parameter Passing

The PLM populates a data structure with image information for the TF-A. The TF-A uses that data to hand off to the loaded images. The address of the handoff data structure is passed in the `PMC_GLOBAL_GLOB_GEN_STORAGE4` register. The register is free to be used by other software once the TF-A is bringing up further firmware images.
