Multi-core system is becoming the next generation embedded design platform. Heterogeneous or homogeneous processor cores integrated in a System-on-Chip (SoC) to build small form factor platforms and provide complex services, e.g., smart phones, are coming up in the horizon. Smart phones provide various domains of applications in the fashion of distributed computing and thus the multi-core architecture is generally a Multiple Instruction Multiple Data (MIMD) type design to deliver different software with a wide range of resource and performance requirements.
