MPSoC Hypervisor: The Safe & Secure Future of Avionics
Why are multicore processors the future of avionics?
Christopher Mims points to three limits to faster uniprocessors: memory bottlenecks, limits to Instruction Level Parallelism, and heat dissipation. “As CPUs have become more capable, their energy consumption and heat production has grown rapidly,” he maintains. “It’s a problem so tenacious that chip manufacturers have been forced to create ‘Systems-on-a-Chip.'”
Multicore technology is the only feasible path to improve processor performance, and DornerWorks provides this separation solution.
