T-GAS*/T-GAP* detailed hardware specs, differences etc.

Post by sbav1 » Wed Dec 14, 2011 1:08 am

For a good start, we have D8000 service manual: http://www.mediafire.com/?0zbju2pwvmgbi7n .

Looks like 3D/FRC chip "Napoli" in D8000 (Genoa-P/SDP1002 SoC based models) is located on T-con board (like in B650's ; in T-VAL*/C650/C750 there were additional 3D and/or FRC chips on the mainboard for that). Analog front end/video processor: Arsenal-WW chip (SDP94): just like in C650/C750 C-Series.

Encoder chip on the D8000 mainboard: apparently it's Nexell NXP2120 (http://nexell.co.kr/kor/pro/pro01.html). Not very impressive specs (MPEG4 SP 720x480@30fps max); 1920x1080 real-time encoding is probably out of the question.. I guess Mobilygen/Maxim MG3500 was too pricey ;). However, there are two Nexell encoder microcodes in /DualTV/ (2nd one: "SPICA DTV Encoder" - perhaps it's a little better one?).

CPLD chip (Altera Max II, AFAIRC): I wonder what is it used for, exactly? It's reprogrammable..

D6XXX models (Genoa-S/SDP1001 based models) - two variants:
- Genoa-S alone (built-in "poor man's" 3D/FRC in main SoC); no additional chips for 3D/FRC ( and no external DRAMs on T-con board == probably just plain/dumb timing controller)
- Genoa-S + Samsung "Parma" chip; I wonder which actual D-series models are using this configuration (if any ?).

WTF?! D6XXX CPU is (presumably) ARM Cortex-A8@1.2GHz, while D7000/D8000 CPU is Cortex-A8@800Mhz (single core)?
Also, kernel-mapped DRAM is substantially smaller in D7/8000 series.. It's really weird :?

Thanks for the service manual sbav1.

I notice that the manual shows how to enable IR support for 2010 glasses. Can't see where they might have hidden the IR transmitter on my D8000 though... :?:

Edit: Guess it must be in the same window as the power light, along with the IR Rx.

Look at my bootloaders "hi5":

GenoaS with Parma, GenoaS only
Seems, here is Parma chip.

To people who understand:
Are the gas6*,gas* and gap* mainboards cross-compatible?
From the provided spec?
I mean is here possible to take mainboard from D7 and add to D6? I havent found D6000 datasheets anywhere to compare...

Hmm...
The board itself will work for sure... :D Problem is if T-con and panel will work with D7 board ...timming,resolution,framerate...
Better check supported types of panels in SM first for D6 and D7 series , and compare specs...
If we digg enaugh maybe find the noHD 3D issue on D6...

I`m total noob and can`t decide by self. need help :)

I have chance to "upgrade" my gas6 board with any other supported main unit board.

GenoaS with Parma, GenoaS only
Seems, here is Parma chip.
Or maybe not.. IMO that only suggests that both (Genoa-S with Parma / Genoa-S only) hardware configurations are supported by T-GAS* firmware[s]. Doesn't mean there is Parma 3D chip in your particular TV model. I'm not quite sure what Parma 3D chip is exactly (looks like it's involved in 2D -> 3D conversion in hardware; is it doing something else or just that?).
Are the gas6*,gas* and gap* mainboards cross-compatible?
I guess not (at least, not as a general rule).

In comparison, B550 -> B650/B750 mainboard switch was very simple (the same 50/60Hz video format on LVDS bus for all 3 models; virtually identical mainboard PCB layout).
Sadly, that's not the case for D6000 -> D[78]000. I expect many more troubles (for a start: power board connector in D8000 is 28pin vs 20pin in D6XXX - ?).
We don't know:
- what signals we can expect on LVDS bus in D6000 and D7000/D8000.. I guess video format should be 100/120Hz for D6XXX models (they use 100/120Hz panels; FRC & 3D is done by Genoa-S on the mainboard - only one chip on the T-Con, no DRAM). D7000/D8000: they use 200/240Hz panels, and FRC & 3D is done on T-Con. But what exact video format[s] are transmitted on LVDS bus in D7000/D8000? 48/50/60Hz? 96/100/120? No idea..
- will D7000/D8000 T-GAP* firmware operate properly while unable to detect FRC/3D Napoli chip on T-Con?
- is Genoa-P even capable of doing on-board FRC & 3D processing? Not very likely, IMO. If yes: 1) is there support for such unusual combination in T-GAP* firmwares? 2) will 3D be actually any better than Genoa-S FUBAR implementation?

OK... more questions than answers... :-)

Then how about D6500 mainboard (gas*) to D6000 barebone (Gas6*) ?

That's more likely :). I'm not sure it's worth a trouble.. AFAIRC:
- D6500 (and up) have built-in wifi (that's one possible problem while switching mainboards, probably not very big one).
- 2D -> 3D conversion: basically useless feature, IMO.
AFAIK we don't have any service manuals for D6XXX ("training manual" only , not very detailed).

Not needed.

I even dont like to watch 3D. IMO not healthy thing. Become headaches after 15min of watching...

Thanks guys for info. I`ll take the D6000 board and install gasdeuc firmware :D :shock:
