VirtualMetrix has developed a new software technology to manage all performance resources of a processorbased system with the goal of minimizing the energy consumption, increasing the processor efficiency and providing performance isolation to enable a higher degree of hardware convergence while reducing software development costs. The performance management software was combined with OK Labs’ OKL4 virtualization Microkernel to create a complete software platform for embedded systems, including a development toolkit. Linux, Android and other Operating Systems will also be supported. While Performance Management can be useful in many applications, it is particularly beneficial in handsets where battery technology has reached its limits while designers continue to pack more and more functionality to narrow the gap to mobile computers.
