Even though multicore architectures, processors and SoCs from vendors like ARM, Intel, Freescale, Qualcomm and others promise unheard of parallel processing potential, in mission- and safety-critical applications they are too often used as “single-core” processors due to concerns about code certification.
But new operating systems with separation kernel hypervisors, new certification methods and safety-critical board standards are allowing the use of multicore processors and virtualization in mission- and safety-critical systems.
This webinar will examine software, methods and case study examples of COTS software and hardware that will unlock the potential of multicore devices so that all cores can be used. Industry experts will also describe ways to use multicore devices in mixed criticality systems where different certification levels are desired.
Examples using SYSGO's PikeOS and Kontron's Vital Computer boards with EN50128 SIL4 certification will be shown.
