Using Java to deal with multicore programming complexity: Part 2

Editor’s Note:In Part 2 in a three part series on how embedded developers can more effectively exploit the use of multicore Java, Kelvin Nilsen details the factors to consider in making a decision to shift from C and C++ to Java, as well as provides some guidelines for migrating legacy code to a Java-based multicore development environment. For …

Down & dirty with HW/SW co-design: Part 3 – Cosynthesis of multiprocessors

Following on Part 1 and Part 2 in this series, we now will reconsider hardware/software co-design for more general multiprocessor architectures. Many useful systems can be designed by hardware/software partitioning algorithms based on the CPU+ accelerator template. Hardware/software partitioning can also be used to design PEs that are part of larger multiprocessors. But if we want to design …
