This Nucleus RTOS release extends the Nucleus Process Model to support asymmetric multiprocessing
(AMP) and symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) on Arm Cortexv8-A processors and multicore SoCs.
In short, MTAPI supports asymmetric multiprocessing
at the hardware and software level.
The Express Logic ThreadX real-time operating system (RTOS) now handles operations in multicore systems that operate in either asymmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) or asymmetric mul-tiprocessing (AMP) modes with processors, such as the ARM MPCore, the Xilinx Zynq, the MIPS 34K and 1004K, and the Analog Devices' Blackfin BF561.
The additional product development capabilities include embedded Linux on multi-core ARM Cortex-A9, symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) and asymmetric multiprocessing
(AMP) using Linux and RTOS.
(AMP) -- For developers looking to manage individual processors on a chip independently, QNX offers out-of-the-box AMP support.
Based on Intel's new one-Gigahertz Processor, the CompactPCI Atlas-C and VMEbus Atlas-V provides built-in support for symmetric and real-time asymmetric multiprocessing
Xilinx is pleased to have worked with Mentor on the development of the Mentor Embedded Multicore Framework to expand Asymmetric Multiprocessing
capabilities on our Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs, said Tomas Evensen, chief scientist of embedded software at Xilinx, Inc.
SierraVisor also offers robust multicore management, supporting both symmetric and asymmetric multiprocessing
to manage system utilization.
This includes Wind River Hypervisor virtualization technology that enables Linux and VxWorks to run simultaneously in an Asymmetric Multiprocessing
