Historically, a significant challenge in implementing and deploying multicore System-on-Chip (SoC) devices has been the availability of proper tools to program and debug these platforms. For developers to take full advantage of the performance of multiple cores, efficiently partitioned and high quality software running on those cores is crucial. The debugging of complex multicore systems comes with additional complexity from their concurrent processing paradigm and the limited accessibility of sub-system interfaces. The strength of a tool suite is measured by the time it takes to develop and debug multicore SoCs, and the ability to achieve optimal SoC performance.
