Embedded virtualization on ARM CPUs
EmbeddedXEN results from several Years of Research in the field of ARM-based CPUs and hypervisor technology based on XEN. The overall architecture has been revisited in order to support the hardware diversity of ARM CPUs platforms and provide an excellent framework to deal with a native OS and a third-party OS cross-compiled from a different ARM CPU. EmbeddedXEN provide a virtualized hardware interface to the third-party OS. EmbeddedXEN has been initiated and is under current development at the Reconfigurable Embedded Digital Systems (REDS) Institute of HEIG-VD, Switzerland.
