More than ever, teams are distributed across geographic locations and business functions, and they experience even greater workflow challenges: distractions, ambiguity, lack of visibility, and context switching in multiple environments," said Ryan Martens, founder and CTO of Rally.
Multi-sensor support with fast context switching The V2500 core provides the features and functionality needed for optimal integration of modern CMOS camera sensors, with full support for sensors from all major vendors.
Another problem the app aims to ease is context switching, being diverted from one task to another before eventually returning to complete it.
The application traffic is passed directly to the Mellanox ConnectX-3 10/40GbE or FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand adapter from the application user space, bypassing the kernel and IP stack and thus minimizing context switching, buffer copies and interruptions resulting in world-record low-latency and higher throughput.
The MSP7160 processing architecture features a MIPS 600MHz multi-threaded core, which enables hitless context switching between simultaneous processing for tasks associated with multiple services.
It offers an operating range from -40[degrees] to +105[degrees] C; context switching (e.
Applications can take advantage of ThreadX's preemption-threshold to eliminate excessive context switching, un-deterministic priority inversion, and enhance responsiveness.
They lack this capability primarily because of their memory management schemes, context switching overhead and the lack of special function units that are necessary for protocol processing.
The new RTOS, which now supports PowerPC, ARM, MIPS, and XScale processors, features full memory protection and guaranteed resource availability, yet still delivers sub-200-nsec interrupt response and sub-microsecond context switching (as measured on a 233-MHz processor).
The sensor's high operating speed enables new advanced image capture options such as HD video with simultaneous still capturing and rapid context switching.
Combining a picokernel design with fast timers and a high-speed preemption-threshold mechanism, ThreadX features a context switching time of less than two microseconds on a 40-MHz PowerPC 860 processor.
Express Logic's ThreadX RTOS is a small, fast, royalty-free RTOS that provides the priority-based preemptive scheduling, optimized context switching, and an intuitive, easy-to-use API.
