View as: Print Mobile App Share:

The Embedded Multi-Core Processing for Mobile Communications (eMuCo) project has released an open source software platform designed to enable the efficient use of multi-core chips on mobile embedded computing devices by using virtualization techniques. "The system opens access to the latest embedded multi-core architectures offering efficient programming and processing of a broad range of different applications, ranging from special purpose applications such as protocol implementation to whole virtualized commodity operating systems," says eMuCo's Adam Lackorzynski.

"It is expected that the emerging multi-core and virtualization technology will revolutionize how a mobile phone will be perceived and opens new business models in the telecommunication market," says eMuCo's Maria Elizabeth Gonzalez.

The eMuCo project was launched to explore the feasibility of multi-core and virtualization as a way to provide higher computational performance and flexibility while limiting power consumption. "Today's smartphone users want to download applications and individually customize their phones according to their needs and preferences," notes eMuCo's Attila Bilgic.
