Kamran Shah There are a number of heterogeneous multicore SoCs being introduced including the Vybrid platform from Freescale and the Jacinto 6 platform from Texas Instruments. At CES in January 2014 we demonstrated how the communication between Cortex M4 and Cortex A15 cores on the TI Jacinto 6 can be implemented using rpmsg. The two videos below show this demonstration in action. The first video illustrates how … Read More

Jamie Little The first Mentor Embedded product (Nucleus) that was released for an ARM-based device was back in 1993 on an ARM6 platform. To site a few references from that time, the project for the ARM6 platform was called Acorn RISC Machine (evolved to Advanced RISC Machine (ARM)), ARM didn’t have nearly as many licensees as they do today, the top RISC processors from that time no longer exists, and the Nucleus … Read More

Kamran Shah Andrew Patterson hosted a webinar that was very popular recently on the options for making use of Android in IVI systems. This includes porting Android to run directly on an SoC as the sole operating system, running Android in conjunction with another operating system such as Linux with use of a hypervisor, or making use of Android via a Linux Container. As a follow-up Ned, one of experts on Linux Containers, … Read More
