Discussions with customers about multicore and virtualization often
provides them with new insights with respect to the designs that they
can use to build their systems. One particular discussion that I had
last week was with a customer that is building a device that needs a
particular level of service quality.
In the past they had looked at
adding another processor to the system, but were never able to do so due
to limited space and power budgets.
