Mercury Computer Systems Launches Multicore Dev Tools

Mercury Computer Systems has announced new software tools for multicore application development -- the MultiCore Plus (MCP) Pro Edition software environment, and the MultiCore MathPack library bundle.

The MCP Pro Edition features a scalable, modular architecture that supports a range of commercial and multicore and multicomputer systems to meet a variety of size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements, from the single-board computer, to embedded standalone multicomputers, to network-centric multicomputer clusters. The MCP Pro Edition includes the Eclipse-based IDE environment, a target-extended operating system, the Interprocessor Communication System (ICS), and the MultiCore MathPack package. The extended operating system includes a board support package, enhanced diagnostics, and the choice of either Linux or Wind River VxWorks software platforms. With the Eclipse-based Open Development Suite (ODS), application developers can configure, test, debug, and profile from one integrated environment.

The MultiCore MathPack package includes the MC SAL (MultiCore Scientific Algorithm Library) and MC VSIPL (MultiCore Vector Signal Image Processing Library). Both MC SAL and MC VSIPL can automatically utilize all available processor cores to ensure peak processor performance without user intervention, enabling high throughput and low latency to support demanding processor-intensive applications.

Both ICS and MathPack are multicore-aware and optimized to maximize performance.
