Addressing Design Challenges In Heterogeneous Multicore Embedded Systems

Why and how current procedures and practices need to change.

popularity

Single-core processor designs for purpose-built devices used to rule the day. Now, heterogeneous multicore systems are quickly becoming the de facto architecture as devices are tasked to do more complex functions faster and more efficiently. In this paper, we’ll explore why hetero/multicore systems have become so popular and why many of our current procedures and practices must change if we are to accommodate hetero/multicore SoCs and the complex software configurations that run on them.
