  • ARM and Mentor talk about Real Time Virtualization, Webinar

    Processor cores come in a wide variety of speeds, performance and capabilities, so it may take you some time to find the proper processor for your system. Let's say that you are designing a product for the industrial, automotive, military or medical markets that has an inherent requirement for safety, security and reliability - which ARM processor would fit the task? The A-series processors are popular and well-known, however the new Cortex-R52 is specifically designed for safety, security and reliability applications.

    You will want to learn more about the Cortex-R52 at a webinar next week that is hosted by experts from both ARM and Mentor Graphics. A few highlights about the Cortex-R52 to whet your appetite:

    • Deterministic microarchitecture
    • Deterministic memory
    • Extensibility
    • Fast interrupt entry
    • Fast context switching
    • Scalability from 1 to 4 core

    Expect to learn a few ideas at this webinar:

    • Advantages of using Cortex-R processors
    • Using devices and software with isolated hypervisors to mage safety and security events
    • Cortex-R52 used in ADAS applications


    Register for the webinar today, there are two timezones available:



    Jon Taylor from ARM and Felix Baum from Mentor are the two presenters, and you'll have time to type in any questions during the webinar for answering at the end. I look forward to attending the webinar and sharing my thoughts in the next blog.
