Our team has been busy working a new demonstration based on the TI Jacinto 6 automotive processor. If you’re interested in seeing it in person, your first chance will be next week at CES in Las Vegas at the GENIVI demonstration showcase.
The Jacinto 6 platform is an interesting SoC that brings together a dual core Cortex™ A15 and two dual core Cortex™ M4 processors. The demonstration we’re putting together for CES shows how both of these processors can be used and also the entire system interaction including the communication between the processors on the SoC can be analyzed. Some of the key things we’ll show next week include:
- Running separated instances of an Instrument Cluster and Linux based Infotainment on the Cortex™ A15 cores
- Executing AUTOSAR based code on the Cortex™ M4 cores to efficiently process CAN data
- Simulating vehicle data over a CAN bus that is processed by the M4 and visualized in the Cluster and IVI system
- Tracing and analyzing the communication between the Cortex™ A15 and Cortex™ M4 cores
I’ll be sure to try and post some video recordings of this demo next week, which will be the first time I get to see them in person as well
