[PATCH v3 0/6] Introduce PRU platform consumer API

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi All,
The Programmable Real-Time Unit and Industrial Communication Subsystem (PRU-ICSS
or simply PRUSS) on various TI SoCs consists of dual 32-bit RISC cores
(Programmable Real-Time Units, or PRUs) for program execution.

There are 3 foundation components for TI PRUSS subsystem: the PRUSS platform
driver, the PRUSS INTC driver and the PRUSS remoteproc driver. All of them have
already been merged and can be found under:
1) drivers/soc/ti/pruss.c
2) drivers/irqchip/irq-pruss-intc.c
3) drivers/remoteproc/pru_rproc.c

The programmable nature of the PRUs provide flexibility to implement custom
peripheral interfaces, fast real-time responses, or specialized data handling.
Example of a PRU consumer drivers will be: 
  - Software UART over PRUSS
  - PRU-ICSS Ethernet EMAC

In order to make usage of common PRU resources and allow the consumer drivers to
configure the PRU hardware for specific usage the PRU API is introduced.

This is the v3 of the old patch series[1]. This doesn't have any functional 
changes, the old series has been rebased on linux-next (tag: next-20230306).

This series depends on another series which is already merged in the remoteproc
tree[2] and is part of v6.3-rc1. This series and the remoteproc series form the
PRUSS consumer API which can be used by consumer drivers to utilize the PRUs.

One example of the consumer driver is the PRU-ICSSG ethernet driver [3],which 
depends on this series and the remoteproc series[2].
