RTOS Handles AMP And SMP

Wind River’s VxWorks 6.7 real-time operating system (RTOS) addresses asymmetrical multiprocessing (AMP) in addition to symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP). A core reservation system allows AMP-style hardware allocation on conventional SMP architectures. Wind River’s multicore interprocess communication (MIPC) provides high-speed, zero-copy communication across SMP and AMP cores. Debugging support has been enhanced to address core-specific thread and processes in the Eclipse-based Workbench integrated development environment (IDE).
