ASMP

(ASymmetric MultiProcessing) A multiprocessing design in which each CPU is assigned a particular program or part of a program that it executes for the duration of the session. Contrast with SMP, in which all the CPUs function as a single resource pool and take on whatever tasks need to be processed next. See MPP.

The Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs also feature an Asymmetric Multi Processing (OpenAMP) development framework that enables the development of software applications for Asymmetric Multiprocessing (AMP) systems such that users can effectively communicate and manage independent processors and software stacks.
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.
Asymmetric Multiprocessing (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. This enables the board's two processors to work together in parallel on the same program, transparent to the programmer and the application.
In short, MTAPI supports asymmetric multiprocessing at the hardware and software level.
SierraVisor also offers robust multicore management, supporting both symmetric and asymmetric multiprocessing to manage system utilization.
