RS485 support in raspberry pi

Mon Feb 25, 2019 5:56 pm

I have raspberry pi3 compute module board and want to interface RS485 via GPIO14 & GPIO15.
We developed add-on board using IC485 transceiver, connected TXD and RXD to DI & RO pins, and also we connected RE and DE pins to two different GPIOs.
Can you please tell us how we can perform the RS485 tx & rx in full duplex mode ? any driver change ?

I have used the same RS485 circuit in our another ARM board and used the following dts code, it worked.

Code: Select all

    rts-gpio =  <&gpio0 22 0>; //RE pin
    rs485-rts-delay = <0 0>;
2) Can we use the following patch ?

Can you please suggest on this?

That patch hasn't been merged, and didn't seem to gain any review comments at all either.
You can apply it add build your own kernel. but I'll agree with the author's comment that sleeping in an interrupt context is not good practice.
