Aonix, the provider of the PERC product line for embedded and real-time Java developers, announced on 9 June the introduction of symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) capability to its primary product PERC Ultra.
Multi-core processors are especially well suited to SMP (symmetric multiprocessing
) which is increasingly popular in military applications.
These small symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) systems will be a far cry from the proprietary $500,000+ SMP systems of a few years ago.
In addition to offering both asymmetric (AMP) and symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) capabilities, QNX has pioneered an innovative "hybrid" capability that combines the superior resource management of SMP with the application control of AMP.
While the prior generation of G7 mainframes, code-named "Freeway" and sold as the zSeries 900, only spanned 16 processors in a single system image using symmetric multiprocessing
, the T-Rex machines will eventually put 64 processors in a single system and the z/OS operating system will eventually support up to 48 processors in a single system image, perhaps delivering as much as 13,000 MIPS.
, which leverages SMP facilities built into Windows NT, Solaris and Linux, is ideal for SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data) applications like graphics and imaging because it enables multiple CPUs to work concurrently on the same program thread, symmetric multiprocessing
Sequent Computer Systems is the industry leader in the design and manufacture of symmetric multiprocessing
The new OP module features an internal incremental solver that delivers exceptional speed using symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) on dual core and quad core PCs running Windows 7.
, or SMP, enables any processor to work on any task, and SMP systems can move tasks between processors to balance the processing workload.
Most servers today are either uniprocessor machines or machines that use symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) technology to create a single virtual processor from many processors that all share a single main memory address space.
Mac OS X features true memory protection, pre-emptive multi-tasking, and symmetric multiprocessing
when running on the new dual-processor Power Mac G4 line.
