Registration: QNX Seminar Ottawa - March 9 2006

QNX Multi-Core Seminar OTTAWA

Designing and Optimizing Software for Freescales MPC8641D Dual-Core PowerPCTM Processor

Location: QNX Software Systems, Ottawa, ON

Thursday, March 9, 2006
11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
LUNCH included (sponsored by QNX and Freescale)

Join QNX Software Systems and Freescale Semiconductor for a technical seminar that looks at understanding and overcoming the challenges of designing optimized software for dual-core processors.

Applications today require more and more processing performance within existing system power budgets. Fortunately for developers, the dual-core MPC8641D processor available from Freescale provides many options for increasing and optimizing application performance without dramatically increasing power consumption.

There is one problem: most embedded engineers today are only familiar with single core processor programming and need guidance on how to design and optimize software for dual core architectures. To address this imminent transition, QNX has introduced its Multi-core Edition, the industries only comprehensive software infrastructure for multi-core processors.

Presenters at this seminar will address the problem by exploring proven strategies and techniques for distributing software tasks across dual cores. It also discusses the benefits and tradeoffs of several multiprocessing models (AMP, SMP, BMP) and discusses tools for troubleshooting and optimizing Freescales dual-core PowerPC processors.
