Asymmetrical multicore processing for reliable, complex embedded systems
Date: December 11, 2014
The perennial universal demand for feature-rich, highly user-interactive products which also require real-time operations, has made it necessary for the engineers to rethink their approach in embedded computing. They are often left wondering how to concurrently process a non real-time application & real-time application on a safety critical embedded system. Toradex expert Valter Minute described how to tackle such challenges using asymmetrical multicore approach in embedded design during this webinar.
The webinar ‘Asymmetrical multicore processing for reliable, complex embedded systems’ addressed the different challenges associated with the traditional approach and helped leverage the true potential of Asymmetric Multicore Processing (AMP). A few other notable points covered in this webinar include:
- Advantages of the AMP over the traditional approach
- Putting AMP to work with NXP®/Freescale Vybrid Architecture
- Convergence of AMP & Complex Embedded Systems
- Tools & features to implement for a full-featured embedded system
In this webinar, Valter Minute has discussed the multi-core architecture like it can be found on the NXP®/Freescale Vybrid and I.MX 6 SoloX in detail and the different uses of each core (Cortex-A and Cortex-M). There is an in-depth discussion on the software support as well – RTOS (eCos®) and Linux implementation. It also includes a demo application (real-time XY pen plotter) developed using Colibri VF61 which leverages the Vybrid’s asymmetric advantages.
