13.2 EDK - "ERROR: xget_value value : A NULL handle was provided" when generating BSP

Description

When generating the Board Support Package (BSP) in the SDK, it reports:

"ERROR:EDK - xget_value value : A NULL handle was provided ERROR:EDK - device-tree () - expected integer but got "" ERROR:EDK:3416 - Error(s) while running TCL procedure generate()."

Solution

If this error occurs in libgen (compiling BSP), please make sure that all the peripherals have been assigned to their specific drivers rather than the"generic" one in the SDK system.mss view.
