NXP LX2160A

NXP Layerscape LX2160A

Course Family:
NXP QorIQ Layerscape Processors
SKU/Ref:
NXP_LX2160

Course Objectives

This course aims to explain the architecture of the NXP LX2160A SoC to enable participants to efficiently design a board and develop or adapt boot and I/O drivers. Attendees will get a detailed understanding of the internal architecture, especially the various paths between CPU, memory and peripherals. They will study the complex I/O peripherals including network accelerators.

General Information

Prerequisites

  • Experience with a 32-bit processor or DSP is mandatory
  • Note that the Cortex-A72 ARM CPU is covered by another course entitled ARM_A72

Duration & Attendance

  • From 5 to 6 days
  • Min/max number of participants: 3-15

Location

On site/intra

Target Audience

Engineers and technicians who develop boards and software based on LX2160A.
