Power.org and AppliedMicro are offering a webinar, Multi-core Application and Performance: Protecting OEMs’ Software Investment. The webcast will focus on high performance multi-core applications for reliable software and stack authentication. The online seminar will take place July 12 at 10:00 am CT. The event is ideal for architects, software developers, engineering managers, marketers, academia and analysts.
eXludus Technologies introduced AppProfiler, which is an application profiling and reporting solution that provides detailed analytics on system resources consumed by applications. As applications execute, AppProfiler records granular level information on resources requested and consumed at the job, process and thread level. This data is then recorded to a central database which users can query against. Data extracted from the database can also be helpful to developers, and to cluster/cloud workload management tools. AppProfiler software is available today. The starting price is $19,900.00 for a set of 100 licenses.
Atego recently launched Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 5.4. The latest version of the development tool supports concurrent multi-processor Garbage Collection (GC) technology atop ARM multi-core processors. Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 5.4 supports multi-core ARM processors such as those based on the ARM Cortex A9 processor. Initial testing of this port was done using a four core ARM processor running Linux. Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 5.4 for Linux/ARM target support is available now from Atego.
DDC-I will host a webinar on about safety-critical software reuse for next-generation avionics and multi-core systems.

CoWare and Tensilica teamed together to further enhance the integration of Tensilica’s processor models into the CoWare tools to support CoWare’s advanced functionality to ease software development on multi-core Tensilica-based SOC (system-on-chip) designs. The enhanced solution is being used by joint CoWare-Tensilica customers in automotive, consumer, and wireless markets. Tensilica Xtensa and Diamond Standard PSPs are available immediately from CoWare as part of the CoWare Model Library.
The Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) initiative has released new models of ARM processor cores. The new models work with the OVP simulator, OVPsim, and can perform at hundreds of millions of instructions per second (MIPS). The ARM models released are for the v4 and v5 instruction sets from ARM, supporting 13 processor cores across the ARM7, ARM9 and ARM10 families of processor cores. This includes the ARM926E processor core, the most popular core developed by ARM. In addition to making the models for ARM processors available as free and open source, OVP offers free, open source example virtual platforms for OVP users.
