Multi-core processors have emerged rapidly in personal computing and embedded systems. However, the programming environment for multi-core processor based systems is still quite immature and lacks efficient tools. In this work, we present a new VERTAF/Multi-Core framework and show how software code can be automatically generated from SysML models of multi-core embedded systems. We illustrate how model-driven design based on SysML can be seamlessly integrated with Intel’s threading building blocks (TBB) and the Quantum Platform middleware libraries. We use a digital video recording system to illustrate the benefits of the framework. Our experiments show how the combination of SysML, QP, and TBB help in making the multi-core embedded system programming model-driven, easy, efficient, and effortless.
