Modern SoCs contain heterogeneous processor devices that can be used to execute specific tasks. Renesas R-Car Gen 3 embeds a Cortex-R7 that can access any memory mapped devices.
Taking advantage of this processor allows to have critical applications that should bring the proof of their robustness (realtime, safety, power consumption..).
This talk start with a presentation about technical constraints about having a MCU running RTOS.
This talk also gives an introduction on how to manage this processor lifecycle from Linux side and how to communicate between both worlds (AGL and Zephyr).
This talk was presented at the AGL All Member Virtual Meeting 2021.
