Learn about MSC815x boot process

Here's a reference for the MSC815x boot process through the use of serial RapidIO (SRIO) transactions and the SmartDSP OS. It includes a booting example that serves as a learning exercise in setting up the MSC815x ATMUs, configuring the MSC8156AMC card, and booting a multi-device serial RapidIO system.

Although typically the MSC815x DSP is booted from a non-DSP host, such as a device built on Power Architecture technology (for example, the P4080), this application note uses an MCS8156ADS as a boot host and the multi-device MSC8156AMC as the boot target.

While this document demonstrates a host booting the master DSP over serial RapidIO, it also provides the full configuration to put all three AMC DSPs into serial RapidIO boot mode.
