Virtualization pushes into microcontrollers

Virtualization is set to be the next battlefield for microcontroller technology.

Both MIPS and ARM are bringing virtualization to industrial microcontrollers in different ways. Imagination Technologies is rolling out the worlds first MCU cores that incorporate hardware virtualization, while ARM is preparing its own version of virtualization technology for the embedded market.
The MIPS M-class M51xx cores form the first group of entry-level MIPS Series5 Warrior CPUs for industrial control, Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, cloud computing, wireless communications, automotive, storage and other applications.
With the MIPS Series5 M-class IP cores, we believe were bringing fresh thinking to the embedded world, said Tony King-Smith, EVP marketing at Imagination. We have seen the trends leading to the need for more advanced multi-context security and multiple execution domains right across the CPU spectrum, which is why were now rolling out virtualization across our entire range of MIPS Series5 CPUs, including the new entry-level M51xx family.
The performance and low power credentials of our latest M-class CPUs have already generated a lot of excitement with our key licensees and partners, he said. With advanced functionality such as virtualization, full FPUs and advanced DSP capabilities, complemented by mature tools both from ourselves and our ecosystem partners such as Mentor Graphics and Green Hills Software, were confident youll be hearing a lot more about MIPS embedded CPUs in the coolest and most disruptive chips and products.
