Multi-core processors are becoming prevalent rapidly in personal computing and embedded systems. Nevertheless, the programming environment for multi-core processor based systems is still quite immature and lacks efficient tools. This chapter will propose a new framework called VERTAF/Multi-Core (VMC) and show how software code can be automatically generated from high-level SysML models of multi-core embedded systems. It will also illustrate how model-driven design based on SysML can be seamlessly integrated with Intel's Threading Building Blocks (TBB) and Quantum Platform (QP) middleware. Finally, this chapter will use a digital video recording (DVR) system to illustrate the benefits of the proposed VMC framework.
