Lenovo to sponsor Robocode 06

| | Comments (0)

TIPPINST - We are delighted to announce that Lenovo will be the key sponsor for Robocode 06. The winning team's college will walk away with a Lenovo laptop and projector on Thu March 23rd. Bernie Goldbach and the crew will be podcasting the event as well as blogging it.

Lenovo's accquired IBM's Personal Computing Division in May 2005. Lenovo is a leader in the global PC market, with approximately $13 billion in annual revenue, and products serving enterprises and consumers the world over.

TIPPINST - Those extemely helpful people at have created a page that lists all their articles on Mutlicore.
The articles are extensive and well written and include the following.

Putting Multicore Processing in Context Part 2
*Virtual system prototypes ease embedded multicore design
*Simulating and debugging multicore behavior
*Applying distributed system concepts to embedded multiprocessor designs: Part 2
*Applying distributed system concepts to embedded multiprocessor designs: Part 1
*Dealing with the design challenges of multicore embedded systems
* Using dual port interconnect to resolve multiprocessor system bottlenecks
*Putting multicore processing in context: Part One
*Using software synthesis for multiprocessor OS and software development
* Developing DSP code on converged hybrid DSP/RISC cores
*How to make your asymmetric multiprocessor design OS and CPU independent
*How to adapt traditional RTOSes to symmetric multiprocessing
* Picking the right RTOS for a hybrid RISC/DSP core
*Thread versus task management in a dual mode DSP/RISC RTOS *environment
* Simplify your multiprocessor-based network design with multicore FPGAs
* What Amdahl's Law can tell us about multicores and multiprocessing
*Using an asymmetric multiprocessor model to build hybrid multicore designs
*Using system services for real time embedded multimedia applications
*Choosing the right multiprocessor development tools
* Use virtual prototypes to model multiprocessor system power needs
* Designing supersystems-on-chip(SSoC)
* Extreme partitioning
*Multiprocessor design for SoCs
*Getting the most from multiprocessor SoC design

A podcast version of the above would be highly desirable.
