A multi-core platform for industrial applications
The increasing complexity and demands of embedded systems create greater
need for sophisticated human-machine interfaces (HMI) and multiple connectivity
options with safe, secure and predictable operation. To concurrently provide rich
HMI and real-time control means bringing together two very different system
paradigms. For example, HMI computation focuses on efficiently processing
pixels and displaying them on a screen, while guaranteed determinism requires
Our Vybrid portfolio brings to market a
unique, low-power system solution that
provides customers a way to combine
rich applications requiring high-resolution
graphical displays and connectivity with
real-time determinism. The Vybrid portfolio
enables customers to create systems that
concurrently run a high-level operating
system such as Linux and a real-time
operating system such as MQX on the same
device. This, along with a communication
API between the rich domain, the real-time
domain and a tool chain that eases debug
of such systems, dramatically shortens
customer time to revenue. The families in the
Vybrid portfolio span entry-level products for
customers who want to upgrade from the
Kinetis MCU to devices with large on-chip
SRAM up to highly integrated, dual-core
solutions intended to serve industrial markets.

Vybrid Controller Solutions
Core Architecture
Vybrid devices have a dual-core architecture
that combines the Cortex-A5 application
processor and the Cortex-M4 for real-time
control. The Vybrid portfolio is designed to
be a transitional product from Kinetis MCUs
featuring the Cortex-M4 core and the i.MX 6
series featuring the Cortex-A9 core, while also
providing scalable devices that can address
the needs of a market that demands critical
safety and security, connectivity and rich HMI
in the same piece of silicon. The Vybrid road
map is built with this scalability and code
compatibility in mind so that the performance
of the device road map grows with the
customer’s needs long into the future.
One of the key benefits of combining the
Cortex-A5 core with the Cortex-M4 core
is the partitioning of tasks based on their
characteristics. For example, for tasks that
need predictable interrupt management—a
typical need for real-time applications—the
Vybrid platform has the Cortex-M4 core
with a Nested Vector Interrupt Controller
(NVIC). This allows graphical applications
and connectivity stacks to be run on the
Cortex-A5 applications processor.
Software can be segmented so that tasks
that need predictable latencies can be run on
the Cortex-M4 core and computer-intensive
processes run on the Cortex-A5 core.
Cortex-A5 Core
The Cortex-A5 processor is a highperformance, low-power core with an L1 and
L2 cache subsystem that provides full virtual
memory capabilities, a double-precision
floating-point unit (FPU) and the ARM NEON
media processing engine. It is intended as an
upgrade for the ARM9 and ARM11 cores and
is architecturally compatible with Cor tex-A9.
The Cortex-A5 also has ARM TrustZone
technology for creating secure applications.
Cortex-M4 Core
The Cortex-M4 core retains all the
advantages of the Cortex-M3 core with an
NVIC, which gives the deterministic interrupt
handling capability demanded by real-time
applications along with tightly coupled
memory (TCM). Determinism is a factor
of NVIC plus TCM. The Cortex-M4 adds
digital signal processing (DSP) capability
in the form of DSP and SIMD instruction
extensions, a single-cycle MAC unit and
single-precision FPU. In addition, Freescale

Note: These Tower System modules and kits support all Vybrid family controllers (VF3xx, VF5xx, and VF6xx)
has added a direct memory access (DMA)
controller, crossbar switch and L1 on-chip
cache memories, maximizing processor
performance and bus bandwidth.
Reliability, Safety and Security
Vybrid devices include a variety of data
integrity and security hardware features for
safeguarding memory, communication and
system data. A cyclic redundancy check
module is available for validating memory
contents and communication data, while
a memory protection unit provides data
protection and increased software reliability.
For fail-safe applications, an independently
clocked watchdog offers protection against
runaway code. When it comes to security,
a hardware encryption unit supports several
encryption and hashing algorithms for program
validation as well as authentication and
securing data for transfer and storage. The
system security module includes a unique chip
identifier, secure key storage and a hardware
tamper detection system. The tamper
detection system has integrated sensors for
voltage, frequency, temperature and external
sensing for physical attack detection.
Optimal System Performance
Vybrid devices are ideal for modern industrial
applications that require higher integration of
communication and connectivity interfaces,
as well as HMI and UI acceleration.
Customers can easily take full advantage of
all the integrated Vybrid features to create
differentiated products by leveraging the
Freescale Embedded Solutions Based on ARM Technology
provided reference board support packages
(BSP) for high-level operating systems (such
as Linux) and real-time operating systems
(such as MQX) that include libraries and
media frameworks tuned to the silicon
architecture. The combination of highefficiency silicon design, low-leakage
process technology and software tuned for
the silicon architecture results in low power
consumption, eliminating the need for a fan
or heat sink and helping to lower overall
system BOM cost. As an example, because
the platform architecture partitions tasks
between the applications processor and the
deterministic MCU, the Cortex-M4 core helps
to improve efficiency in industrial
motor control applications that can result in a
reduced carbon footprint.

Processor Expert Software
Processor Expert is a rapid application
design tool that combines easy-to-use
component-based application creation with
an expert knowledge system.
Features
• Allows an application to be specified by the functionality needed
Graphical User Interface
• When the project is built, Processor Expert
automatically generates highly optimized
embedded C code.
Processor Expert software is integrated in
Eclipse and can be used both with Eclipse or
with non-Eclipse users for all the supported
platforms. It nicely integrates into the Eclipse
or external IDEs and takes advantage of
the Eclipse framework and ecosystem with
version control, automatic documentation
and advanced editing functionality.
The Processor Expert Knowledge Base
incorporates all the information from the
data sheets: It knows everything about pin
muxing, clock and interrupt configuration,
hardware and peripheral capabilities, and
offers a convenient graphical user interface
to configure it. Processor Expert checks
the consistency of the MCU configuration
settings and flags errors that otherwise are
hard to find. Using Processor Expert helps
get you started with a new design in minutes,
and there is no need to read thousands of
reference manual pages first.
• Components and drivers for on-chip peripherals
(BitIO, SCI, CAN, USB, Timers, LCD, etc.)
Embedded Components
• Bare metal (no RTOS) and RTOS aware, including MQX
• Additional components can be created or downloaded and
added to the system, e.g. FreeRTOS or off-chip devices
(EEPROM, transceivers, LCD displays, etc.)
• Creates tested, optimized C code tuned to application needs
and the selected Freescale device
Automatic Code and
Documentation Generator
• Automatically generates text and open source doxygen
documentation for HTML or PDF formats
• Static code generation so generated drivers can be used
without the need for Processor Expert in projects
• No need to read the data sheet: Processor Expert knows the
Built-In Knowledge Base
pins available, which pins can be used in which mode and
what settings are possible
• Generates tested and working code sequences for the most
complicated peripheral usage: configuring the MCU clocks is
just a matter of a few clicks
• Direct access to low-level MCU registers and functionality
using highly optimized PDD macros
• Immediately flags resource conflicts and incorrect settings so
errors are caught early in the design cycle
• Allows user-specific hardware-independent embedded
Component Development Environment
components to be created
• Graphical user interface with wizard to assist software driver
code and component generation
• Components and driver code sharable with other developers
Processor Expert Software: Microcontroller Driver Suite
Processor Expert includes the Component
Development Environment (CDE). With this,
you do not have to accept generic onesize-fits-all drivers. You can design custom
peripheral drivers ideally suited to your
needs, without having to know everything
about the hardware. A wizard guides you
through creating software components that
you can use and distribute to bring software
development and engineering to the next level.
44
• Eclipse framework with multiple detachable views, multimonitor
support and highly configurable look and feel
• CPU, on-chip peripherals, external
peripherals and software functionality are
encapsulated into embedded components.
• Each component’s functionality can be
tailored to fit application requirements by
modifying the component’s properties,
methods and events.
