SPDIFRX device tree configuration
1 Article purpose
2 DT bindings documentation
STM32 SPDIFRX device tree bindings  document describes all the required and optional configuration properties.
3 DT configuration
STM32CubeMX can be used to generate the board device tree. Refer to How to configure the DT using STM32CubeMX for more details.
3.1 DT configuration (STM32 level)
The SPDIFRX node is declared in stm32mp157c.dtsi. It describes the hardware parameters such as register addresses, interrupt, clock and DMA. This set of properties may not vary for a given STM32MPU.
|This device tree part is related to STM32 microprocessors. It must be kept as is, without being modified by the end-user.|
3.2 DT configuration (board level)
The SPDIFRX is an audio peripheral, which can be used as a component of a soundcard through Linux® kernel ALSA framework. This part of the device tree allows the configuration of the SPDIFRX to implement a soundcard. Refer to soundcard configuration for examples of SPDIFRX configuration on various boards.
4 How to configure the DT using STM32CubeMX
The STM32CubeMX tool can be used to configure the STM32MPU device and get the corresponding platform configuration device tree files.
The STM32CubeMX may not support all the properties described in the above DT bindings documentation paragraph. If so, the tool inserts user sections in the generated device tree. These sections can then be edited to add some properties and they are preserved from one generation to another. Refer to STM32CubeMX user manual for further information.
