ABSTRACT

Compared to conventional uniprocessor chips, multi-core processors offer significantly greater concurrency, system density, and performance per watt. This evolution to multi-core architecture can help developers lower costs while providing greater flexibility to deliver innovative solutions to customers. For example, in many embedded applications with Intel dual core processors it is possible to run real-time tasks on dedicated execution cores, unencumbered from other tasks that would otherwise compete for CPU resources.
This seminar will help developers realize the benefits of Intel multi-core processors in their embedded applications. The seminar will describe Intel dual-core processors including processor and cache architecture, interrupts and execution environments. Technical experts will discuss proven strategies and techniques for maximizing application performance by distributing software tasks across multiple CPU cores. The benefits and tradeoffs of several multiprocessing models (AMP, SMP, BMP), and tools for troubleshooting and optimizing multi-core systems will also be discussed.
This webcast will be useful for those developers/system architects who are planning to use or who are considering using multi-core technology in their designs. It will last for a full hour with Q&A. There are no prerequisites for this webcast.
