Emerging multicore hardware platforms and their software support challenges (download)


The first industrial multiprocessor system-on-chip (MPSoC) platforms have already found their way into the embedded systems we use in our everyday life, as in advanced entertainment and communication platforms. The ever increasing performance hunger drives also the adoption of MultiCore architectures into battery operated embedded devices such as cell phones or portable media players. These architectures will meet the performance needs of tomorrow's applications, but need to meet even worse constraints on power consumption. In this talk, the latest developments and future directions of hardware MPSoC platforms for nomadic embedded applications will be presented. Next to the hardware perspective, the software related challenges of these emerging MPSoC platforms will be discussed and some of the proposed solutions will be evaluated.
