In the current evolution of processors, specially in the embedded world, performance resides in parallel architecture. In this domain, the dynamic allocation of software within a matrix of cores is a very promising technology we have accompanied for years, because it was an elegant solution to solve many issues we face on a daily basis.
First of all the parallelization of software is done in a rigorous way by the compiler, splitting the code in independent entities, and this is a huge progress in engineering.
Second: the cores can be deactivated if proven in failure, and the software can be reallocated automatically, giving an elegant way to graceful degradation.
Third: the software can be sent several times in the matrix, and it gives intrinsic replication.
Fourth: the software being allocated at the very moment of execution, the software is very difficult to trap, and it increases the resilience to cyberattacks.
"For Safran, this SoC, once available, will be a breakthrough in computer technology."
