    Multiprocessor system-on-chip designers face challenges during prototyping, when there is a real need for methods and tools that can easily map applications onto different architectures without tedious redesigning. Such methods and tools must also ensure rapid validation. A new MPSoC prototyping and validation approach uses the Posix 1003 1.C API standard and a reconfigurable multiprocessor hardwa...

    Integrating formal assertions into the modeling, implementation, and testing of statechart-based designs can enhance a rapid system prototyping system's robustness by providing runtime monitoring and recovery from assertion failures. An iterative process for developing and verifying statechart prototype models augmented with statechart assertions using the StateRover tool lets system designers wri... View full abstract»

    Mobile devices are ubiquitous: they encompass portable audio and video players, digital cameras, tablet PCs and PDAs, as well as cell phones and smart phones. A Sept. 2006 Cellular News story (http://www.cellular-news.com/story/19223.php) estimated that there are more than 2.5 billion mobile phones worldwide. Although the mobile systems market is large and the career opportunities for students are... View full abstract»

    A new multiprocessor system-on-chip prototyping flow based on the Portable Operating System Interface (Posix) standard and a multiprocessor hardware platform lets you quickly prototype Posix-based applications. Modern MPSoCs (multiprocessor systems on chip) contain a huge amount of software and rely on complex hardware components. As application complexity grows, programmable multiprocessor platfo...

    Service management represents the dawn of a new software era. The time when applications ran on a small computer somewhere in the corner is long gone. Today, services run over the whole Internet. They introduce a lot of opportunities, but also a lot of management problems. Dejan interviews Mark Potts, HP fellow and chief technologist of HP's Business Technology Optimization, about these problems. View full abstract»
