Inter-Processor Communication (IPC) provides a processor-agnostic API which can be used for communication between processors in a multi-processor environment (inter-core), communication to other threads on same processor (inter-process), and communication to peripherals (inter-device). The API supports message passing, streams, and linked lists.

IPC can be used to communicate with the following:

  • Other threads on the same processor
  • Threads on other processors running SYS/BIOS
  • Threads on other processors running an HLOS (e.g., Linux, QNX, Android)

About this User's Guide

This wiki-based user's guide is the new home of the Inter-Processor Communication (IPC) User's Guide (SPRUGO6). That PDF-based document will no longer be updated.

This user's guide contains the topics in the following list. It also links to API reference documentation for static configuration (Book config.png) and run-time C processing (Book run.png) for each module.
