Xilinx Inc. has disclosed its new partnership with Multicore Association (MCA) OpenAMP Group, which aims to create standards that will improve productivity and time to market of heterogeneous system development.

"We applaud Xilinx's commitment to help establish and lead the new MCA OpenAMP group, offering its extensive experience in FPGA and SoC-based solutions for the development of heterogeneous systems," said Markus Levy, chairperson of Multicore Association.

Xilinx's OpenAMP framework simplifies heterogeneous system development and is a fully supported implementation of OpenAMP on the industry's only production available 16nm multi-processing Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC devices. The OpenAMP framework supports out-of-the-box interoperability and communication between FreeRTOS, Xilinx Stand-alone environment and the Linux operating system (OS) running on ARM A53 or R5 cores on Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC as well as on the ARM A9 on the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC.

Other commercial offerings supporting OpenAMP include Mentor Graphics Multicore Framework with integrated support for Nucleus RTOS, Mentor Embedded Linux, BareMetal, Mentor Embedded Hypervisor and Sourcery Codebench development environment. Additional commercial distribution operating systems that support this framework include Micrium'sµC/OS-II andµC/OS-III.

"The MCA OpenAMP group will help create standards that will help ease and accelerate adoption of OpenAMP framework-based technologies in the multi-core industry," said Tomas Evensen, CTO of Embedded Software, Xilinx. "These standards will ensure that Xilinx's implementation of OpenAMP will help customers get started quickly building robust systems."
