The Multicore Association®
|Multicore Association Plugged Into Multicore Expo Programs
At last year's Multicore Expo, the Multicore Association had presentations related only to its Multicore Communications API. Picking up the pace this year, the consortium will have presentations from each of its working groups providing a variety of practical information to attendees.
The Multicore Programming Practices working group (MPP) will present "Establishing Consistent and Reliable Multicore Programming Practices" covering a status update and insight into the progress of the group, showing examples of the various techniques that will be emphasized in its publicly-available best practices guide.
The Multicore Resource Management API working group (MRAPI®) will present "Designing a Platform Agnostic Resource Management API for Multicore Systems" which will describe the motivation and need for MRAPI®, along with related work, features, status, and next steps of the specification.
The Multicore Communications API (MCAPI) working group will present "Applying an Industry Standard Communication API to Your Embedded Multicore Design" and provide an update on its completed specification, along with practical guidelines for using this specification today in your homogeneous or heterogeneous multicore designs.
The Multicore Virtualization Working Group (MVWG) will give a presentation
entitled "Standards-based Multicore Virtualization Framework for Hypervisors
and Distributed I/O". The presentation will explain the primary motivations

Progress Continues at the Multicore Association!
The Multicore Programming Practices (MPP) working group, chaired by Max
Domeika (Intel) and David Stewart (CriticalBlue), has completed a detailed
outline for the components of the best practices guide. The next phase will
The Multicore Resource Management API (MRAPI®) working group, chaired by Jim Holt (Freescale) is focused on:
1. Synchronization primitives
Don't Forget the No-Cost Downloads:
If you haven't checked it out yet, the Multicore Association has made publicly available the full MCAPI® specification and a source code example implementation. The example MCAPI® implementation is comprised of C source code, a set of regression test-cases, and some example benchmarking code. This will allow multicore programmers to easily familiarize themselves with the functionality of MCAPI®.
