Embedded Virtualization Powers Mixed-Criticality IoT Systems

March 4, 2019

The growth of IIoT means that more systems need to run enterprise applications alongside real-time processes. This puts mixed-criticality workloads on a single device, which can compromise the determinism of industrial workloads. To overcome this, developers are adopting embedded virtualization technology.

In this article IIoT engineers will learn:

•    How virtualization can improve flexibility and maximize resource utilization by using symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) techniques
•    Why asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) enables the scale of SMP, allowing developers to dedicate cores to specific workloads or processes
•    How Intel® processors incorporate hardware-assisted features and simplify deploying Windows and standard general-purpose OS’s to safely coexist on the same IIoT system
