白皮书下载(WP474):Xen和创建Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC嵌入式软件的艺术

Xilinx 刚刚推出了一个新的白皮书,名字为 “利用Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC 上的 Xen 管理程序实现虚拟化” 。 如果你的工作涉及这样相对复杂的嵌入式系统, 你很可能有必要读一读这篇不是很长的白皮书 - 只有7页。

该白皮书是这样写的:
“Virtualization is a staple for desktop systems but has long been a complex proposition for embedded systems designers, who need to optimize SoC system utilization and performance.

“Traditionally, the pain of virtualization in the embedded space was caused by the lack of appropriate hardware resources to make the solution easy to implement while providing satisfactory performance. Thus, systems that required heterogeneous software stacks running on the same processor had either to resort to manual management of the various software stacks or to accept the increased latency and decreased performance characteristic of unaccelerated virtualization.”

Well, it turns out that’s not a problem because the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC has ample processing horsepower in its quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor APU (application processing unit), it's dual-core ARM Cortex-R5 RPU (real-time procesing unit), and additional hardware to handle the small overhead of virtualization.
