Advanced debug of NXP i.MX7 heterogeneous system


Arm heterogeneous systems combine a high-performance Cortex-A processor together with an energy-efficient Cortex-M processor, all in a single chip. It’s not surprising to see the popularity of these systems increasing since heterogeneous computing allows to run a complex HMI on Linux as well as a low power real-time applications running on popular RTOS such as FreeRTOS or RTX.

Software development and debug of heterogeneous systems can be complex. Choosing the right tool can make all the difference between delivering on time or spending days trying to debug a complex inter-processors communication issue.

Arm and Toradex recently delivered a webinar to explore debugging the Colibri i.MX7D module using Arm DS-MDK IDE included in Arm Keil MDK. Don’t worry if you missed it: the recording is now available below.
