Overview:
Multicore is here to stay. The potential benefits it can bring are well-communicated, but development comes with its own set of challenges, and there's no one-size-fits-all solution. What solution is best for your current project? How is multicore going to improve your product? Will it lower parts costs? What about better performance while keeping the same power profile you have now? Overall, you need tangible benefits before you make the leap.

Join Wind River, Intel, and EE Times in this web seminar panel discussion to learn more about the technology and business trends that will change the way devices are architected and developed, and how you can prepare for this future with the right multicore and virtualization technologies.

You will learn how to:

  • Take advantage of multiple cores
  • Get the best performance-not just processing speed but power and cost-out of your multicore solution
  • Bring a new level of flexibility to embedded device development
  • Achieve cost savings through hardware consolidation and better performance per watt
  • Future-proof your design so you don't need to re-port or redesign your software when future hardware improvements arrive
  • Leverage multiple operating systems in a single device to expand and enhance device functionality while reducing hardware costs significantly
  • Increase reliability and reduce risk
