Title: Designing real-time, embedded multi-core applications
This talk describes how the top level design of embedded, real-time applications are undertaken on XMOS XCORE(tm) devices. It will cover the partitioning of the design across different processing cores and the considerations to take into account when design applications: memory, communication bandwidth, latency etc. All this will be demonstrated will some real examples using the XMOS development tools.
Dr David Lacey works as Technical Director of Software Tools at XMOS Ltd.
