Packet Processing Engine Reference Design for IEC61850 GOOSE Forwarding


The TIDEP0074 reference design demonstrates packet switching and filtering logic implemented in the M4 core of AM572x based upon the Ethertype: MAC address and Application ID (APPID) of GOOSE packets received from the PRU-ICSS. Packets are filtered and routed to destinations in order to allow the time-critical events defined in substation communication standard IEC 61580 to be serviced in a dedicated core. The design additionally shows multi-core communication between the ARM Cortex™-A15: Cortex™-M4 and DSP C66x™ cores of the AM572x while Linux runs on the A15s and TI-RTOS runs on the M4 and DSP cores.

  • Ethernet packet switching logic and IEC61850 GOOSE filtering algorithm implemented on ARM Cortex-M4 cores of AM572x to determine destination routing to A15 or further processing in M4.Interprocessor Communication (IPC) using messageQ in A15 with Linux: and in M4 and DSP with TI-RTOSPRU-ICSS firmware load and boot by M4 for Ethernet packet transferThe TIDEP0074 reference design is tested on the TMDXIDK5728 board and includes documentation: software: demo application: and HW design files.
