Re: Part II: Partitioning an Embedded System for Multicore Design

Good presentation!  Partitioning is a key design strategy.  IOP's (I/O Processors) are a common architectural implementation, perhaps not common enough.  Partitioning means ownership, ownership (presuming 'buy-in) means accountability, accountability means interest and dedication (not that it isn't there otherwise, but harder to maintain).  Partitioning makes for easier design and debug, supportability and future product enhancements.


All this presumes someone cares and there is something to care about.  I hope many are opting out of the widget, gadget and whatchamacallit industries and looking for serious socially responsible engineering opportunities.  My main concern is the power grid and how societally power is used (and mis-used) and the attendant problems that will come with it.  Portable applications notwithstanding, devices, including batteries need to be powered from somewhere ...
