2012 Embedded Market Study – Software Development & Processors

I’ve just come across an Embedded System Study by UBM published in April 2012. The company surveyed over 1,700 professionals working on embedded systems who are mainly based in the US (56%),  but also in Europe (21%) and Asia (12%). The report is 87 long, but I found some of the slides are particularly interesting in regards to programming languages, operating …

Using Java to deal with multicore programming complexity: Part 3 – Using Java with C and C++ for real-time multicore designs

Editor’s Note: In this final part in a three-part series, Atego’s Kelvin Nilsen provides guidelines on how to use the combination of the Java parallel programming language and traditional sequential C and C++ methodologies to achieve real-time multicore software operation. When multiple processors work together to accomplish a particular work assignment, the goal to minimize coordination activities may conflict with the …

ParaSail: Less is more with multicore

Parallel multicore programming should be easier than it is. What makes it such a struggle? Most programming languages were designed without parallel programming in mind. Attempts to add on parallel programming features, or parallel libraries, are doomed to a struggle against the impediments built into the original languages. What are the impediments to easy parallel programming? With apologies to …
