There's a lot of talk about embedded performance these days, and in the embedded community, most people think of hardware performance first. Indeed, for a long time, the semiconductor industry could deliver more performance to software developers at "zero cost", but those days are over. Embedded application performance gains must now be delivered by software, or it becomes a performance bottleneck. This video describes the key issues embedded software developers need to consider with modern hardware and outlines the most important law for high-performant software development today: Amdahl's Law. You'll learn why you won't see the expected performance gains with a common embedded operating system and learn about a new safety RTOS that takes Amdahl's Law into account: eMCOS.
