i.MX 6 SoloX MCC
- MCC is a library for lightweight communication between cores
- Configured at compile time (mcc_config.h)
- Current version (2.0) is not backward compatible
- MCC works with shared memory area
- Communication is performed through ‘send’ and ‘receive’ functions
Shared memory Cores communicate through shared memory
Core structures of the MCC MCC_ENDPOINT
- Identifies a processor core, A9 is 0 and M4 is 1.
- In Linux, each process using MCC has its own node number. MQX has only one node number.
- Any number of ports per node is allowed.
- Value MCC_RESERVED_PORT_NUMBER is not allowed.
The number of endpoints in system is defined during compile time by macro MCC_ATTR_MAX_RECEIVE_ENDPOINTS.
MCC_BOOKEEPING_STRUCT Endpoint table I.
