VxWorks 7: Uni-Processor to Symmetric Multi-Processor Conversion and Incompatibilities

VxWorks 7: Uni-Processor to Symmetric Multi-Processor Conversion and Incompatibilities

Learn how to modify your application to leverage SMP.

About this course

Understand the incompatibilities between uni-processor operations and symmetric multiprocessor for both memory operations and interrupts. Follow a three step process  to convert existing uniprocessor code to symmetric multiprocessor code.
