Multi-core processors are about to conquer embedded systems - it is not the question of whether they are coming but how the architectures of the microcontrollers should look with respect to the strict requirements in the field. The authors present the step from one to multiple cores in this paper, establishing coherence and consistency for different types of shared memory by hardware means. Also support for point-to-point synchronization between the processor cores is realized implementing different hardware barriers.
