AM6442: Sitara Webinar Series: AM64x Software Development Overview

Part Number: AM6442

If you are interested in learning more about the new AM6442 Sitara Processor family and the Software Development flows that are used for a successful design, this is a great opportunity. This is the next webinar in our monthly webinar series. There are two sessions for your convenience: One at 10AM CST for the Western Hemisphere on 9/21/2021 and another at 9PM CST (10 AM GMT + 8) for the Eastern Hemisphere 9/21/2021 (9/22/2021 in Asia). There are registration links for both sessions below. 

In this webinar, the Software Development flows for the AM64x SoC will be discussed. The AM64x SoC is a very powerful heterogeneous multi-core processor with a variety of cores designed for specific purposes. ARM Cortex-A53 cores are available to run High-Level Operating Systems (HLOS) like Linux. Up to four ARM Cortex-R5F cores are available for real-time applications that demand deterministic operation like motor control. One ARM Cortex-M4F is available for safety or other house keeping functions. Finally, the Programmable Real-Time Unites (PRUs) are included for flexibility with interfacing with a variety of interfaces or other real-time processing. The software for these cores can vary from Linux applications to very simple bare metal code monitoring GPIO pins. The right software development environment needs to be set up to enable code development for each of these cores and the final integration of the system software.

If you'd like to learn more about this software environment, we will dive deeper into it for each type of core. Here are some things you will learn:

  • SoC Architecture focused on processor cores
  • Software available for each type of core
  • Tools needed and recommended for each type of core
  • Using Linux to coordinate the execution of the other cores
  • Bringing it all together to leverage the full capability of AM64x
