Migrating from single to multicore processing on QorIQ technology

The single core processor is reaching its performance ceiling, due to energy, thermal and power concerns. To address these issues that cause design difficulties, many embedded designers are migrating embedded applications from single core to multicore. This article provides an outline for a software strategy to progress from one core to two and beyond using [...]

OCP performance monitoring with programmable instruments

The process of proving the system is working and performing optimally, under all application and environmental conditions, has become too inefficient and difficult for existing methodologies. Traditional methods for addressing post-silicon requirements have reached the point of diminishing returns. What was once an exercise of designing, implementing and verifying 25,000 to 50,000 gates of instrumentation […]

Streamlining software development for a hardware ecosystem

Software accounts for more than half the development cost for a complex system-on-chip (SoC) platform at the 45nm process node or below. The availability of fundamental software such as compilers, debuggers, operating systems and industry-specific middleware determines the success or failure of a chip design. In simple terms, if there is little or no software […]
