This course aims to explain the architecture of the NXP MPC8610 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 the communication controllers.
- Experience with a 32-bit processor or DSP is mandatory
- The e600 CPU is covered by a separate course entitled NXP_E600
Duration & Attendance
- 3 days
- Min/max number of participants: 3-15
Engineers and technicians who develop boards and software based on MPC8610.

CPU Software Package (CSP) for the e600: implements exceptions, L1 cache, L2 cache, MMU paging
SoC Software Package (SSP) for the MPC8610: implements drivers for interrupt controller, DMA, memory controllers, Ethernet. This CSP/SSP is an ideal starting point for developing proprietary RTOS or bare-metal applications.
