I just booted my FR using the NAND uboot and heart loud interferences in my FM radio which is at a distance of 1.5-2 meter.

looks like I should have the FM radio running more often to check for EMV problems ;-)

Hmm, maybe ask our hw folks to hold an antenna up in the air and look
with a spectrum analyzer what this is. Seems pretty strong.

Our memory clock is 100MHz on GTA02, that is in FM band. It also comes out of CPU to external SDRAM chip.

On GTA03 all the SDRAM is in the CPU and the actual base clock is 133MHz.

If this thing only happens in U-Boot and not kernel for whatever reason, we will change to Qi soon which spends only a couple of seconds in the bootloader anyway, so I guess that is the fix.
