Course Family:
Freescale Power 64-bit Architecture
SKU/Ref:
NXP_E6500

Course Objectives

This course aims to explain the architecture of the NXP e6500 PowerPC CPU to enable participants to efficiently develop low level software for P5 and T1 QorIQ SoCs. Attendees will get a detailed understanding of the internal architecture, especially the implementation of the PowerPC 64-bit specification. They will study the complex mechanisms specific to PowerPC processors, particularly multi-threading, pipeline, cache and MMU.
