This session will discuss the challenges of supporting multiple execution environments on embedded systems and advocate heterogeneous multiprocessing (HMP) as an effective solution to those challenges. The i.MX architecture will evolve to support HMP based on the integration of ARM Cortex-A and Cortex-M processors into a single SoC. This session will introduce the HMP architectural features available on next-gen i.MX designs, including resource sharing/isolation, interprocessor communication and interprocessor synchronization.
