Hi everyone,

I am studying the CAAM capabilities and performances on the iMX6 processor family. (In particular iMX6S, iMX6SX and iMX6Q).

Note that the CAAM runs in bare-metal applications (without any OS) on my boards.

  • I would like to know where is localized the CAAM in the SoC?
  • What is its clock /frequency ? Which PLL manages it ? Is the same clock for the CPU and the CAAM ?

        Is it possible to tune it ?

  • It is possible to get a performances benchmark of the differents crypto algorithms (AES, RSA, SHA...)
  • What is its hardware features ? Temperature, resistance ?

I've already read

- i.MX 6Solo/6DualLite Applications Processor Reference Manual (IMX6SDLRM.pdf)

- i.MX 6 Series Thermal Management Guidelines (AN4579.pdf)

Is there others interestings documents ?

Anyone could give some informations ?

Thank you for your help,

Fabien M.

Hi Fabien

clocks used by caam are described in Table 18-3. System Clocks, Gating, and Override

i.MX6DQ Reference Manual (rev.2  7/2014)

http://cache.freescale.com/files/32bit/doc/ref_manual/IMX6DQRM.pdf

Main info for caam  is security reference manual

https://community.freescale.com/docs/DOC-97660

Some performance link

https://community.freescale.com/docs/DOC-95700

Also it may be recommended to create service request (login to freescale.com)

for obtaining more performance data and localization in the SoC.

Best regards

igor
