Not many companies have the expertise to build software to meet the DO-178C (Aviation), IEC61508 (Industrial), or ISO26262 (Automotive) safety standards. Yet the demand for safety-certified software is growing as software control is used in more... Read More


Multicore safety research from Barcelona Supercomputer Centre (BSC) says that a robustly partitioned hardware and software platform is practically impossible. With today’s multicore processors (MCPs), current RTOS, and hypervisor technology Dr.... Read More

Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) -Pt 2- LynxOS-178 10G network benchmarkS

_______________ Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) virtualizes network interface cards (NICs) to allow a single NIC to present itself as dozens of virtual NICs to a hypervisor. It is a hardware standard, part of the PCI-SIG (Peripheral... Read More

Who Needs a Hypervisor?

_______________ The standard benefits of a hypervisor are well known and often touted. Every RTOS has its hypervisor and they do genuinely help embedded designers to: Partition multicore processors into virtual machines; an elegant way to... Read More

What is Cache Coloring and How Does it Work?

_______________ There are substantial challenges in building secure and safe systems on multicore processors (MCPs). Last level cache contention is undoubtedly the largest source of multicore interference, and a significant challenge for real-time... Read More

Intel’s first DO-254 hardware certification evidence – it’s on a MultiCore

WELL DONE, INTEL®! Over the years I’ve read lots of datasheets. They can sometimes be heavy on marketing buzzwords and prone to sweeping statements that oversell their solutions and gloss over gaps. I read this new Solution Brief from Intel and it... Read More
