We are discussing if Cadence/TI/NXP could use the same USB PHY driver
(drivers/phy/cadence/phy-cadence-sierra.c), I find I can't get
Alan Douglas <adouglas at cadence.com>, would you please forward related
people? The question is like below, thanks.
Alan, we find the suggested value at this driver (drivers/phy/cadence/phy-cadence-sierra.c)
is so different with "USB 3.0 PHY User Guide for 28FDSOI" CH 3.1.1 Bring-up Sequence.
Does this driver support this 28nm PHY? If it supports, why the initialized value is so different?
The UG suggested value can be used at NXP platform.
