Mentor® Embedded Hypervisor allows developers to meet the design needs of a complex system, especially those systems that require open source flexibility, real-time performance, or adherence to industry standards. Whether building a system for automotive, medical, industrial, or any other industry segment, Mentor Embedded Hypervisor helps development teams satisfy complex product requirements while meeting critical security, cost, and time-to-market business concerns.
Mentor Embedded Hypervisor is a small footprint type 1 hypervisor designed and built specifically for embedded applications. The high performance capability enables systems to boot quickly while minimizing the impact on guest operating system execution. The framework of Mentor Embedded Hypervisor is extremely flexible, allowing it to run on single-core or multicore processor architectures supporting asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP), symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), or a combination of both. The tool effectively addresses a broad range of embedded device security requirements by extending the limitations of hardware-only system partitioning and includes integrated support for the ARM® TrustZone® system security architecture.
