This course aims to explain the architecture of the NXP P1021 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 e500 CPU is covered by a separate course entitled NXP_E500
Duration & Attendance
- From 5 to 6 days
- Min/max number of participants: 3-15
Engineers and technicians who develop boards and software based on P1021.

CPU Software Package (CSP) for the e500: implements exceptions, L1 cache and MMU paging
SoC Software Package (SSP) for the P1021: implements drivers for L2 cache, interrupt controller, DMA, memory controllers, Ethernet. This CSP/SSP is an ideal starting point for developing proprietary RTOS or bare-metal applications.
