Support for Multiprocessor Platforms

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Multiprocessor platforms are becoming the norm for more powerful embedded real-time systems. Although Ada allows its tasks to be executed on such platforms, until recently it has provided no explicit support. The new revision of Ada now provides facilities for allocating and scheduling tasks on SMP platforms. The notions of a CPU and Dispatching-Domain have been introduced. We summaries these facilities and review the extra support that could be provided in the future for SMP and non-SMP platforms.
