       dtc - Device Tree Compiler


       /usr/bin/dtc [options] <input file>


       Device  Tree  Compiler,  dtc, takes as input a device-tree in a given format and outputs a
       device-tree in another format for booting kernels on  embedded  systems.   Typically,  the
       input  format  is  "dts",  a  human readable source format, and creates a "dtb", or binary
       format as output.


       -h     Display help text.

       -q     Quiet:

              -q - Suppress warnings.
              -qq - Suppress errors.
              -qqq - Suppress all.

       -I <input format>

              Input formats are:

              dts - device tree source text
              dtb - device tree blob
              fs - /proc/device-tree style directory

       -o <output file>

              Dump the result into a file, instead of stdout.

       -O <output format>

              Output formats are:

              dts - device tree source text
              dtb - device tree blob
              asm - assembler source

       -V <output version>

              Blob version to produce. The default is 17 (only relevant for dtb and asm output).

       -d <output dependency file>

       -R <number>

              Make space for <number> reserve map entries (only relevant for dtb and asm output).

       -S <bytes>

              Make the blob at least <bytes> long (extra space).

       -p <bytes>

              Add padding to the blob of <bytes> long (extra space)

       -b <number>

              Set the physical boot CPU.


              Force - try to produce output even if the input tree has errors.


              Sort nodes and properties before outputting (only useful for comparing trees)

       -v     Print DTC version and exit.

       -H <phandle format>

              phandle formats are:

              legacy - "linux,phandle" properties only
              epapr - "phandle" properties only
              both - Both "linux,phandle" and "phandle" properties
