EMC² – ‘Embedded Multi-Core systems for Mixed Criticality applications in dynamic and changeable real-time environments’ was an ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking project in the Innovation Pilot Program ‘Computing platforms for embedded systems’ (AIPP5).

Embedded systems are the key innovation driver to improve almost all mechatronic products with affordable, new functionalities. They support today’s information society as inter-system communication enabler. A major industrial challenge arises from the need to face cost efficient integration of different applications with different levels of safety and security on a single computing platform in an open context.

EMC² worked on solutions for dynamic adaptability in open systems, especially handling of mixed criticality applications under real-time conditions, scalability and utmost flexibility, full scale deployment and management of integrated tool chains, through the entire lifecycle.

The objective of EMC² was to establish Multi-Core technology in all relevant Embedded Systems domains.

EMC² was a project involving 99 partners of the embedded industry and research from 19 European countries, with an effort of about 800 person years and a total budget of about 100 million Euro.
