Multicore processors create challenges for software development. Embedded operating systems are being enhanced to support multicore environments but software developers also need advanced tools to help address multicore software development issues. Discover how a model driven approach allows for rapid configuration of overall core usage and maximization of processing bandwidth, in the context of an RTOS. This approach enables faster exploration and delivery of optimized multicore solutions.

Key Takeaways:
The attendees will learn how to rapidly configure overall core usage, maximize processing bandwidth and explore alternate configurations leveraging an integrated development environment combining the power of an advanced multicore-aware RTOS and model driven development tooling.
