When customers develop applications that use multiple programmable cores on the AM57x they require a clear understanding of roles and configurations of multiple software (SW) components such as IPC, CMEM, CMA, Linux™, and SYS/BIOS on slave cores, in order to arrive at correct configuration for their application. This application report describes memory utilization schemes by A15/DSP/IPU, how they are related, and what needs to happen in the process of adapting Processor SDK configuration to a custom one.
