Architecture Migration: Break Away with Intel Atom Processors

Study Guide: Architecture Migration
Book Type: Intel Press Books
Category: Programming

This invaluable book provides insight into architecture migration discussing real world software migration issues and highlighting them with case studies. The book covers pertinent topics that are at the heart of the software migration, such as techniques to port code originally written for other processor architectures, as well as capturing the benefits of Intel® Atom™ platform technologies. The reality is that architecture migration is not a one-size-fits-all activity and developers must understand all of the decisions that comprise a successful migration. The authors deliver this information as a handbook to your software migration plan and project activities.

"This is an essential guide to working with the Intel® Atom™ processors that should be read by anyone who wants to understand how to use the platform effectively. The book covers key concepts including power management, parallel applications, and machine virtualization, while providing a clear explanation of the system architecture and how to use it to its fullest advantage."

Paul Krzyzanowski, CTO, OpenPeak Inc.

"This isn't just a book about Intel extending its reach into the embedded market. In a way that is fresh and exciting, the authors have really understood that it is a powerful software methodology and tools eco-system that is needed for developers to make best use of the multicore and multithreaded world we now live in. The style of this Atom book will be the standard against which all processor architecture books are measured from now on."

David Stewart, CEO, Critical Blue

"This book is an excellent resource for someone trying to quickly come up to speed on the benefits, features, and differences of the Intel® Atom™ processors. As an added benefit, many of the concepts discussed throughout this book will provide the reader with generic implementation details, thereby serving as a good read for anyone new to the practical aspects of processor programming. The author's elaborate discussion on multicore programming techniques and tools is especially valuable, providing accurate details that are difficult to come by."

Markus Levy, President, The Multicore Association
