7.2.6. Additional Notes

Details of key interface changes in the package from the previous release

NEW OLD Notes/Impact
Firmware requires L3 Shared structure base address to be configured by the application Firmware used Constant Table to get the L3 Shared structure base address Application needs to configure the address in offset 0xF0 (DRAM_L3BASEADDRESS_OFFSET) of DRAM1
Added profi_bsp.c file which has the definitions of common bsp functions. SOC_bsp.c has only platform specific function definitions All the function definition in SOC_bsp.c file Cleaner implementation
