NEC tips multicore dynamic control tech

October 5, 2007 – NEC says it has developed technology that allocates performance from multicore processors and let embedded devices coordinate via the Internet, saying it will offer more scalability and security for embedded systems.

Examples of the technology in application include anticrime devices linking mobile phones with citywide monitoring cameras; autopayment services at restaurants; and driver-assistance systems tying drive recorders with car navigation products. The technology also executes separate software on separate cores so that any virus-infected software and core can be individually terminated without impacting software running on other cores, which lets the overall device keep working, noted the Nikkei Business Daily.

The technology was presented at last week’s international conference on hardware/software co-design and system synthesis (CODES+ISSS) in Salzburg, Austria.
