Multicore technology improves performance per watt ratios and requires less board real estate. This paper discusses the combined capabilities of the Intel® Core™ microarchitecture and Wind River® VxWorks® symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) operating system. It explores SMP software design considerations and methodologies, as well as Wind River tools that help with each step of the multicore software development cycle.
