Multi-core & Multi-OS: The Future of Embedded Systems
On-demand Web Seminar
This webinar includes a briefing from the Mentor Graphics OS engineering team, who will discuss the implementation of Nucleus OS and Linux on the Marvell Sheeva™ MV78200 Dual-core Embedded Processor.
Modern embedded systems often feature a very high level of functionality, addressing very complex requirements. The implementation of such systems may commonly be partitioned into hard real time and non real time parts, which are conveniently implemented using two or more processor cores or chips. As the requirements of each part of the application are different, it is often useful to utilize two or more different operating systems.
In this session, the functionality and application of a conventional RTOS (like Mentor Graphics Nucleus OS) and a Linux implementation are outlined, compared and contrasted. The use of both in a single system is detailed and the challenges and solutions identified.
What You Will Learn
- The key features of different classes of OS
- How functionality may be divided between CPUs
- How Mentor Graphics supports asymmetric multiprocessing applications
