University of Houston researchers are collaborating with Texas Instruments (TI) to simplify the development of programmable multicore processors.

"Our research makes it simpler for medical equipment manufacturers, for instance, to develop advanced software for TI's embedded multicore processors," says Houston professor Barbara Chapman. "The combination of the tools we're developing and TI's new and extremely powerful multicore processors will enable the creation of medical applications that were previously not possible."

Chapman also has worked with TI researchers to develop a graduate course that teaches the principles of multicore processing, with a focus on embedded computing. In addition, the University of Houston is using TI's BeagleBoard platform, a high-performance, low-power development platform that can be put into students' hands and enable them to learn by doing.
