Thread synchronization techniques for better multicore system power/performance tradeoffs

It’s a common refrain heard among embedded software design teams everywhere, when the team manager declares, “We need better system power management from both the hardware and software, but we also need to optimize the design for increased functionality and performance.” So, how can a software designer hope to accomplish such a feat when in order to maximize one …

Managing power in embedded applications using dual operating systems

In this product how-to article, TI’s Loc Truong describes how to use inter-processor communication and state machine design to reduce the overall system power in a heterogeneous dual-core system based on the company’s OMAP-L138 C6-Integra DSP + ARM processor running its in-house dual DSP/BIOS RTOS. Energy consumption is becoming more of a concern as it is receiving an increasingly …
