System-Level Software for a Multi-Core MERASA Processor
In the EC FP-7 MERASA project a hard real-time capable multi-core processor is developed. The system-level software represents an abstraction layer between application software and embedded hardware. It has to provide basic functionalities of a real-time operating system.
This report presents requirements for a multi-threaded and multi-core hard real-time capable system software in embedded systems and the transfer to the implemented MERASA multi-core processor showing details of the thread management, the dynamic memory management and the resource management. It summarises the full MERASA system-level software developed for a multi-core processor running on the MERASA SystemC Simulator.
