B Labs Ltd has unveiled its first product, the Codezero microkernel embedded hypervisor that provides a method for bundling and migrating legacy applications to multicored processors and providing secure isolation and co-existence of so-called bare-metal, RTOS and Linux applications on the same hardware platform. Codezero primarily supports ARM microprocessors and recently has added the quad-core Cortex-A9 to its portfolio.

Bare-metal refers to applications which do not require the mediation of an OS but run directly on hardware. The embedded virtualization solutions startup's first product, the Codezero hypervisor primarily focuses on three main features: Linux kernel virtualization, secure platform resource partitioning and multicore processor utilization.

The applications that can benefit from the use of Codezero include: communications platforms including mobile and cellular terminals, mobile multimedia devices, STB, and general multicore SoC embedded platforms.
