Hi,

For a project, I would like a specific operating with iMX7 :

- Run FREERTOS on Cortex M4

- Run Linux/Yocto on Cortex A7

- Continual, Cortex M4 save data on NAND flash

- The main part of the time, Cortex A7 is sleeping and few time it wake up to process data (from NAND flash)

- NAND flash is share between Cortex M4 et Cortex A7.

Is it possible to have this configuration ?

Is there some example ?

Best regards

Hi victorien

yes such configuration is possible, NAND can be shared using DRC described in

sect.3.2 Resource Domain Controller (RDC) i.MX7D Reference Manual

Unfortunately I am not aware of examples of this case.

Best regards
igor

Thinks for this answer.

Is there an application note which explain how to use the heterogeneous architecture (cortex M4 and A7) configure the cross compilation software and the SDK ?
