Asymmetric/Heterogeneous multicore systems are redefining embedded systems today. The asymmetric multicore processors provide an effective solution wherein a core may run an operating system such as Linux (with its various advantages of using the pre-existing resources already inbuilt in it), while the other core enables the implementation of real-time control by a RTOS like MQX, FreeRTOS or eCOS.

During the course of this webinar video, participants will have an overview of how the programming and implementation of asymmetric/heterogeneous multicore approach is held on the VF61 SoC (Arm® Cortex®-A5 + Arm® Cortex®-M4) family of NXP®/Freescale VybridTM processors. The following demos will be developed using a VF61 Colibri Computer on Module (CoM):

  • Compiling and running a "Blink led" program on Linux (Cortex-A5)
  • Compiling and running a "Blink led" program on the firmware (Cortex-M4)
  • Modifying applications in order to build communication between the A5 and M4 cores
  • Example of communication between the A5 and M4 cores using the NXP®/Freescale MCC Library
