Real-Time with Asymmetric Multiprocessing (AMP) for F&S NXP i.MX 6DualLite/Quad Modules
For the development of real-time systems with embedded Linux on F&S boards, our partner emlix GmbH developed a software solution based on asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP).
For the usage of modern multi-core processors with two or more cores, one core is being isolated from the software compound and is used exclusively (asymmetrically) with specialized real-time software.
The advantage of this architecture is the strict isolation of real-time tasks – for example a control algorithm – from the rest of the system.
