Debugging and testing multiprocessors

Posted in General by testing in London on July 21, 2008

From EE Times

A survey performed by Freescale and Virtutech at the Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley 2008 indicated that the top issues in multicore software development were:

  • lack of determinism and repeatability of bugs
  • inability to stop an entire system to debug software
  • getting existing software to run on multicore systems;
  • inadequate visibility of all states in an embedded system (e.g., system-on-chip, board and rack).

The survey indicated that performance was less a problem for software development, yet the primary reason for choosing a multicore processor.
