After completing this online training , you will have the necessary skills to:

  • Distinguish between asymmetric multi-processing (AMP) and symmetric multi-processing (SMP)environments
  • Identify situations when the ARM TrustZone technology and/or a hypervisor should be used
  • Effectively use power management strategies and leverage the capabilities of the platform management unit (PMU)
  • Define the boot sequences appropriate to the needs of the system
  • Define the underlying implementation of the application processing unit(APU) and real-time processing unit(RPU) to make best use of their capabilities
