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

CPU Software Package (CSP) for the ARM® Cortex™-A72: implements exceptions, GIC, L1 cache, L2 cache, MMU paging and supports multicore in SMP or AMP mode.
SoC Software Package (SSP) for the NXP LX2160A: implements drivers for interrupt controller, memory controllers, uart and edma. This CSP/SSP is an ideal starting point for developing proprietary RTOS or bare-metal applications.
