VirtualLogix has announced VLX real-time virtualization software support for the Multicore Association’s recently approved specification for Multicore Communications API (MCAPI).
MCAPI has been defined to flexibly support hundreds of processor cores and systems with tight memory constraints, fast task execution times, reliable on-chip interconnect and high system throughput requirements. By supporting the MCAPI specification within VLX, customers are able to apply this same flexibility and scalability to virtualized environments allowing them to easily migrate applications from a physical multicore system to one implemented with VirtualLogix VLX virtualization software via this industry accepted API.
VirtualLogix VLX real-time virtualization software helps users reduce bill of material costs by consolidating hardware, improving security and reducing overall power consumption. VirtualLogix offers extensive support for multicore technology, including its VLX for Network Infrastructure, which supports Intel® Core™ MicroArchitecture and Texas Instruments Multi-core Digital Signal Processors. VLX Developer, VirtualLogix’s Eclipse-based development tool set, assists developers to optimize the software architecture of their virtualized, multicore platforms.
