Following an embedded system design path from start to finish, our team of experts takes you from architecture, through hardware implementation to software programming and debug.
With this book you will learn:
. What motivates multicore
. The architectural options and tradeoffs; when to use what
. How to deal with the unique hardware challenges that multicore presents
. How to manage the software infrastructure in a multicore environment
. How to write effective multicore programs
. How to port legacy code into a multicore system and partition legacy software
. How to optimize both the system and software
. The particular challenges of debugging multicore hardware and software
