VirtualLogix Drives Industry Adoption with Support of Newest Multicore Association Specification
VirtualLogix, Inc. today announced VLX real-time virtualization software support for the Multicore Associations recently approved specification for Multicore Communications API (MCAPI).

MCAPI has been defined to flexibly support hundreds of processor cores and systems with tight memory constraints, fast task execution times, reliable on-chip interconnect and high system throughput requirements. By supporting the MCAPI specification within VLX, customers are able to apply this same flexibility and scalability to virtualized environments allowing them to easily migrate applications from a physical multicore system to one implemented with VirtualLogix VLX virtualization software via this industry accepted API.

As one of the first organizations to support MCAPI, VirtualLogix is setting a powerful precedent for the industry-wide adoption of standards that enable applications to provide basic, simple and efficient multicore communication functionality between closely distributed processors in embedded systems, said Sven Brehmer, chairman of the Multicore Association MCAPI working group and president and CEO for PolyCore Software.

MCAPI gives VirtualLogix customers more options, said Peter Richards, president and CEO for VirtualLogix. By complementing our existing high performance, flexible communications solution with MCAPI, VirtualLogix is demonstrating a serious commitment to providing enhanced interoperability with other multicore machines.

VirtualLogix VLX real-time virtualization software helps users reduce bill of material costs by consolidating hardware, improving security and reducing overall power consumption. VirtualLogix offers extensive support for multicore technology, including its VLX for Network Infrastructure, which supports Intel® Core MicroArchitecture and Texas Instruments Multi-core Digital Signal Processors. VLX Developer, VirtualLogixs Eclipse-based development tool set, assists developers to optimize the software architecture of their virtualized, multicore platforms.
