Title: DYNAMIC PARTITIONING OF PROCESSING HARDWARE
Abstract:
A system and method of partitioning host processing system resources is provided. An integrated circuit device having a plurality of processors or processing cores and a number of interfaces is portioned at boot into different hardware partitions based on the application needs of the host processing system. The technology provides a non-transitory memory storage including instructions; and a plurality of processors in communication with the memory. The integrated circuit device also includes a plurality of communication interfaces in communication with the processors. At least one of the plurality of processors executes instructions to configure a subset of the plurality of processors to a first hardware partition, and configure a different subset of the plurality of processors and at least one of the plurality of communication interfaces to a second hardware partition.
