Blog post and discussion by Carolyn Mathas, EE Times
In a recent discussion with Sven Brehmer, president and CEO of PolyCore Software–See Productivity tools and runtime engine boost multicore efficiency—I asked him where the adoption of multicore stands today.
Sven indicated that even though the technology has been around for ten years, from a software perspective we’re still in the early stages. While it’s true that it’s used on PCs, servers, and some embedded systems, he indicated that it’s the shortage of software tools and run-time solutions that make progress slow.
So, what is your experience? Have you considered multicore? What’s stopping you or at least hindering the rush to adopt? I’m curious. Have you looked into it and decided it’s too confusing? Weigh in on what you think.
