Leveraging the OpenAMP Framework using the Xilinx Zynq MPSoC. Free Webinar. June 20

by Xilinx Employee on ‎05-15-2017 10:19 AM (33,672 Views)


With at least four, six, or more hardened, embedded programmable microprocessor cores in Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs and a nearly unlimited number of soft MicroBlaze processor cores possible in the devices’ programmable logic, you need to start thinking pretty hard about how you’re going to harness all of that software programmability. Hardent would like to help you so it’s offering a free Webinar on June 20 titled “Leveraging The OpenAMP Framework for Heterogeneous Software Architecture.”


The OpenAMP framework for the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC virtualizes the Zynq MPSoC processors and makes that consolidated computing power available to software developers in a more familiar form. Hardent’s webinar will discuss the OpenAMP framework and will then outline how designers can leverage the framework to run different operating systems—such as Linux and an RTOS—concurrently, using different processors within the same MPSoC.


In this webinar, you will:


  • Learn about Linux Asymmetric Multiprocessing (AMP) on multi-core and heterogeneous devices
  • Discover what the OpenAMP framework is and how you can use it to manage firmware across a multi-processor system
  • Learn how to get started with the OpenAMP framework (topology, start-up process, API, and vendor support)
