  • Software Development for Android on ARM big.LITTLE processing SoCs Using Virtual Prototypes
    As devices get more and more complex, developing software for those devices becomes increasingly complex. While big.LITTLE processing offers a way to balance high performance through the use of the ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore processor with power efficiency by migrating software tasks to the ARM Cortex-A7 MPCore processor to extend battery life, these processors challenge software developers to keep up and both utilize the available compute power while being power conscious. With the right set of models, virtual prototypes offer a unique platform view to the software developer to ease the software development for these multi-core designs. They moreover provide unique capabilities to make sure that software developers correctly utilize the available Android control functions to deliver a smooth user experience while minimizing power consumption.
