The Multicore Association has revealed that Renesas Electronics Corporation has joined the consortium as an executive board member.

The Multicore Association is working to enable the widespread adoption of multi-core processor-based implementations by setting standards for how systems will be utilised and programmed. As a semiconductor design innovator, Renesas will help the Multicore Association drive standards for deploying multi-core solutions in high performance embedded systems.

"Renesas is a leading innovator in the areas of microcontrollers and SoCs for applications spanning automotive, audio-visual devices, communications, and factory automation," said Multicore Association President, Markus Levy. "Renesas involvement with the Multicore Association, especially focused on our new Software-Hardware Interface for Multi-Many Core (SHIM) standard, will provide very well-rounded guidance and a practical perspective on designing with multi-core technology."

"Renesas strongly supports the MCA and its mission to guide the long-term development of open standards for multi-core solutions," said Dr. Fumio Arakawa, a Chief Professional at Renesas Electronics Corporation. "Our history is marked by a commitment to innovation that's truly useful for customers, as well as dedication to open standards and a broad ecosystem that furthers industry-wide collaboration. Our work with MCA supports that commitment. As we advance the technology within our products based on multi-core and manycore architectures, it will become critical for our development tool partners to have a standardised interface to the hardware C this in turn will benefit our customers and support quicker time to market."

The Multicore Association provides three levels of membership, with executive board, working group, and university members. The executive board helps determine the overall direction of the organisation. Working group members are eligible to work on any of the working groups. University members may participate in any of the Multicore Association's ongoing development work.
