    Synchornization of Cores

    I'm working with one Aurix TC27x

    In my little application two cores are working together (Core0 is a Producer, and Core1 is a Consumer). But I have some problems to share resources.

    What is the typical mechanism to share a variable between them? How can synchronize the information? I have only used mutex and semaphores, but with only one core. So I do not know how to implement this other type of locking

    Information about intercore comunications will be appreciated.

    Look at synchronization methods from ifx library:

    typedef unsigned int IfxCpu_mutexLock;
    boolean IfxCpu_acquireMutex (IfxCpu_mutexLock * lock)
        boolean retVal;
        volatile uint32 spinLockVal;
        retVal = FALSE;
        spinLockVal = 1UL;
        spinLockVal = (uint32) __cmpAndSwap (((unsigned int *) lock), spinLockVal, 0);
        /* Check if the SpinLock WAS set before the attempt to acquire spinlock */
        if (spinLockVal == 0)
            retVal = TRUE;
        return retVal;
    void IfxCpu_releaseMutex (IfxCpu_mutexLock * lock)
        /*Reset the SpinLock */
        *lock = 0;
