Abstract

In this paper we present a performance comparison between a real-time multiprocessor kernel implemented in hardware and a corresponding kernel implemented in software. The hardware kernel showed overall better performance. For instance the speedup achieved with the hardware kernel was up to 2.6 times. We also present an optimization that has been applied to the software kernel, which in some cases showed even better performance than the hardware kernel.
