Looking for M3 and M10 0xFB800000 ROM

Discussed https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=12542.msg124747#msg124747 and https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=14990.msg168334#msg168334 the PowerShot firmware EOS cams have an additional ROM from 0xfb800000 to 0xfc000000

I'd be interested to see a copy if anyone has one to share. With chdkptp, it could be dumped like
Code: [Select]
rmem 0xfb800000 0x800000 -f=DUMP.BIN

i thought you (not I ;) could pull that from the file.
it's from a M3 121a

would this be a buffer that maybe all digic6 and up cams have?

Thanks. It doesn't have any obviously identifying information in it, appears to be data of some kind.

Other P&S cams I looked at don't seem to have the corresponding MPU region mentioned in https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=12542.msg124747#msg124747

My immediate interest is because the Magic Lantern qemu configuration for M3 and M10 requires it.

Digic 7 has a different memory layout, so even if has an equivalent, it's like not at the same address.

Some hints point to this secondary ROM being for an FPGA. M3 has tons of FPGA related strings and eventprocs, while non-EOS digic 6 do not. There is an eventproc FPGA.Info, which might be interesting.

reconfiguring a FPGA sounds to me like a good way to get more out of the cam or forever brick it if you get it wrong.
definately interesting :)

Hadn't come across any FPGA stuff in roms before so I had a quick look: M100, 200D and 77D have refs as well.  M100 strings are similar to M3, but different to 200D & 77D, which are both similar to each other.  200D code might be related to card controllers.
