Is safety-critical ready for multi-core?
By Paul Parkinson
You may feel that you’re experiencing déjà vu reading this blog, but the title ‘Is safety-critical ready for multi-core?’ is different to an earlier blog, which was ‘Is multi-core ready for safety-critical?‘.
In the earlier blog,

exploit the capabilities of multi-core devices. However, before I dive
into the details, I should really outline the different types of
safety-critical systems (at least in the simple categories which I like
