1.1 Sections

1.1.1 Available dtbs

To allow Cortex M4 accessing shared resources without experiencing Linux kernel conflicts, a dedicated device tree must be loaded, by selecting the right version with the symbolic link in the /boot folder of the booting media.

These device trees contain m4 label in their name.

1.1.4 NXP Memory types

The SDK allow linking using 2 different memory types: DDR, TCM.

Here is available a short summary of memory areas used by Cortex-M4 as described in related linker file.

memory type M4 memory area A53 memory area memory lentgh linker file
DDR 0x80000000-0x801FFFFF (code)
0x80200000-0x803FFFFF (data)

0x80000000-0x801FFFFF (code)

0x007E0000-0x007FFFFF (code)

0x80000000-0x80FFFFFF (data2)
256kB (TCM) + 16MB (DDR) MIMX8MQ6xxxJZ_cm4_ram.ld

All linker files are locate in the armgcc folder of each demo.

The DDR reserved area must much the one declared in the kernel device tree: at least 2 GB of RAM is required on the SoM to allow Cortex-M4 accessing the range 0x80000000 - 0x80FFFFFF.

The RPMSG area is located at 0xB8000000: at least 3 GB of RAM is required on the SoM to allow Cortex-M4 accessing the RPMSG area. After launching the build_all.sh command the following folder will be created in the armgcc folder

  • ddr_debug: containing DDR binaries compiled in debug mode (stripped: no symbols available)
  • ddr_release: containing DDR binaries compiled in release mode (not stripped: symbols available)
  • debug: containing TCM binaries compiled in debug mode (stripped: no symbols available)
  • release: containing TCM binaries compiled in release mode (not stripped: symbols available)

1.1.5 Variscite Memory types

The SDK allow linking using 2 different memory types: DDR, TCM.

Here is available a short summary of memory areas used by Cortex-M4 as described in related linker file.

memory type M4 memory area A53 memory area memory lentgh linker file
DDR 0x7E000000-0x7E1FFFFF (code)

256kB (TCM) + 16MB (DDR) MIMX8MQ6xxxJZ_cm4_ram.ld

All linker files are locate in the armgcc folder of each demo.

The DDR reserved area must much the one declared in the kernel device tree: at least 1 GB of RAM is required on the SoM to allow Cortex-M4 accessing the range 0x7E000000 - 0x7EFFFFFF. For some reason, Cortex-M4 is not able to access RAM locations below 0x60000000: SoMs with 512 MB of RAM are not suitable to use Cortex-M4.

The RPMSG area is located at 0x40000000: all SoMs allow Cortex-M4 accessing the RPMSG area.

After launching the build_all.sh command the following folder will be created in the armgcc folder

  • ddr_debug: containing DDR binaries compiled in debug mode (stripped: no symbols available)
  • ddr_release: containing DDR binaries compiled in release mode (not stripped: symbols available)
  • debug: containing TCM binaries compiled in debug mode (stripped: no symbols available)
  • release: containing TCM binaries compiled in release mode (not stripped: symbols available)

2.1 Sections

2.1.1 Available dtbs

To allow Cortex M4 accessing shared resources without experiencing Linux kernel conflicts, a dedicated device tree must be loaded, containing m4 label in the name, using the fdt_file environment variable in uboot.

fsl-imx8mm-var-dart-m4.dtb

This device tree disables some of the base device tree nodes in order to avoid conflicts between the main processor and Cortex M4.

2.1.2 Default M4 pins

Default M4 pins used by the demos are:

function pin
debug UART (UART2) RX: J12.6 / TX: J12.4
GPIO (GPIO4_IO03) LED7
I2C (I2C4) SCL: J12.17 / SDA: J12.19
