MontaVista, Freescale Announce Migrating Embedded Applications Webinars

MontaVista® Software, Inc., the leader in embedded Linux® commercialization, announces two web seminars presented with Freescale[tm] Semiconductor and TechOnline to help answer the number one question embedded systems engineers have when transitioning to a multicore environment: “How do I leverage the work I’ve already done in my applications?”

Attendees to this event will better understand how to develop for multicore processors by taking advantage of the millions of lines of single-threaded legacy code they already have. Presenters will discuss the benefits of embedded Linux as a solution for multicore development, and will help systems engineers evaluate what is important as they make the transition to multicore. The seminar will conclude with an overview of MontaVista TestDrive, and a virtual evaluation of MontaVista Linux on a Virtutech Simics model of the Freescale QorIQ[tm] P4080 and MPC8641D Power Architecture[tm] processors.

The free web seminar “Multicore 101: Migrating Embedded Applications to a Multicore Environment with Linux” will be moderated by industry veteran Richard Nass, editor-in-chief/editorial director of Embedded Systems Design,, and the Embedded Systems Conferences. Speakers will include Brad Dixon, director of product management for MontaVista Software, and Ian Forsyth, senior enablement architect for Freescale Semiconductor.

The 60-minute web seminar will be conducted twice on September 11 at convenient times for developers located in the US and Europe. Details are available online. Both sessions will be presented live, with time for questions from the audience. Admission is complimentary and all information will be presented via the Internet, with both computer-streamed audio and telephone access available.
