ESC Best of Show awards go to multicore tools and operating system

Late last week, VDC Research handed out its Best of Show awards for ESC Silicon Valley 2009. The results were interesting: The winner, CriticalBlue, took top honors for its multicore analysis tools, and the runner-up, QNX Software Sytems, received an honorable mention for its multicore-enabled secure RTOS.

The analysts at VDC follow the embedded market closely, so their choice of two multicore-related products speaks volumes, IMHO. It's their way of stating that multicore processors — and the software tools that support them — are becoming increasingly important to embedded developers.
