Demo shows off multicore capabilities
Ignios has unveiled a T-Engine based demonstration of the seamless integration of its SystemWeaver multicore-enabling technology with the multicore MB87Q1100 Fujitsu SoC
The demonstration shows how the use of the SystemWeaver API allows application software to be written, via a T-Kernel adaptation layer, and compiled in a manner that is independent of the number of underlying processing resources. The SystemWeaver IP core then manages the dynamic run-time distribution of software across all available processing resources in the multicore MB87Q1100 device, delivering the full potential of the hardware to the application.
'SystemWeaver technology clearly shows the path to establishing a viable way of using multicore SoCs'.
'We believe that the success of this demonstration has now opened the door for the deployment of this technology'.
'We have made a step forward in enabling concurrent, system-level software development independent of hardware, achieving seamless interaction of multiple heterogeneous CPU cores in the system', commented Tetsu Tanizawa, Deputy General Manager, Strategic Business Development Division, Fujitsu Electronic Devices Business Unit.
The demonstration is based on a combination of connected T-Engine boards - one containing the Fujitsu MB87Q1100 device, the other containing an FPGA onto which the SystemWeaver IP core is synthesised.
The MB87Q1100 integrates ARM926EJ-S and ARM946E-S embedded cores in Fujitsu's SoC platform.
SystemWeaver manages the ARM processors via an AHB-Lite interface that connects the FPGA to the AHB bus within the MB87Q1100.
In production systems, SystemWeaver would be integrated on-chip within the multicore SoC.
In addition to improving multicore software development and delivering run-time management efficiency, the demonstration also shows how the SystemWeaver IP core provides nonintrusive access to system-level trace information to enhance multicore debug.
'We are delighted to be working with a leading semiconductor company such as Fujitsu to demonstrate the capabilities of SystemWeaver', declared Rick Clucas, Ignios CEO.
'The results of this project again show that SystemWeaver provides unparalleled ease of use and efficiency for multicore architectures'.
