Leverage Vybrid's Asymmetrical Multicore Architecture For Real-Time Applications

Freescales Vybrid is an asymmetrical multicore architecture consisting of a Cortex A5 application processor and a Cortex M4 microcontroller. This talk shows how to leverage the two cores to build real-time applications without having external micro-controller and without using real-time capabilities of the main OS itself. By using two different operating systems (Linux and eCos RTOS), one can take advantage of two worlds: Broad application and driver base for Linux while having excellent real-time capabilities on eCos. Since they are in the same SoC, one can still benefit from the advantages having only one SoC, e.g. easier firmware upgrade, shared memory and therefor less communication overhead as well as saving costs.
