Overview:
The demand for bandwidth in wireless infrastructure and other high performance applications continues to scale off the charts. Multicore processors and their enabling operating system and tools software are being called upon to fill the breach. But, more often than not, the level of integration fails the 1+1=3 test – resulting in designs that fail to meet requirements. Freescale and Enea are embarking on strategic partnership to close the performance gap through a unique and extraordinary partnership that raises the integration bar. In this Webinar your will learn:

  • Why having a collection of cores in a single package in not sufficient—a flexible, multicore-optimized software architecture, coupled with hardware accelerators and deep hardware/software integration and optimization, are the keys to successful multicore designs
  • The questions to ask your vendors about security, fast path frameworks, software enablement and virtualization
  • How SMP/AMP execution models, heterogeneous operating environments and hypervisors can function together in a hybrid architecture for maximum development flexibility and throughput in a multicore platform
