Embedded Virtualization Powers Mixed-Criticality IoT Systems
March 05, 2019
The growth of IIoT means that more systems need to run enterprise applications alongside real-time processes.
The growth of IIoT means that more systems need to run enterprise applications alongside real-time processes. This puts mixed-criticality workloads on a single device, which can compromise the determinism of industrial workloads. To overcome this, developers are adopting embedded virtualization technology.
In this article IIoT engineers will learn:
• How virtualization can improve flexibility and maximize resource utilization by using symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) techniques
• Why asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) enables the scale of SMP, allowing developers to dedicate cores to specific workloads or processes
• How Intel® processors incorporate hardware-assisted features and simplify deploying Windows and standard general-purpose OS’s to safely coexist on the same IIoT system
