RPMSG / AMP between CPU and MCU in separate chips

Hello, 

 

I'm reading about RPMSG and openAMP: 
RPMsg-Lite User's Guide: RPMsg Component 

GitHub - NXPmicro/rpmsg-lite: RPMsg implementation for small MCUs 

open-amp/openamp_ref.pdf at master · OpenAMP/open-amp · GitHub 

 

It seems that RPMSG is principally use when two CPU or when a CPU/MCU are inside the same silicon chip.
(ex: i.mx6 SoloX or i.mx7 or vybrid)

 

However, I would like to know if :
Is it possible to use RPMSG between an (external) Kinetis MCU and a (external) Single core i.mx6 ?
(or)
Is it
 possible to use RPMSG between two external Kinetis MCU ?

In short, does RPMSG / OpenAMP applies only to single silicon chip with multiple cores or can I use it between two separate chips ?  What would be the best interface between these chips ? (UART or SPI ?)

 

Thanks
