Memory Protection

 
Memory Protection

Many embedded systems include memory protection, which is required to build fault tolerant systems. As an increasing number of CPUs have on-chip memory management units (MMU), SCIOPTA supports memory protection by use of the SCIOPTA Memory Management System (SMMS).


 
SCIOPTA Memory Management System (SMMS)

SCIOPTA applications can take full advantage of hardware memory management units by usingSMMS. The MMU of the CPU can protect data, code and even exception vectors belonging to processes, and it protects whole memory areas from corruption.

The SCIOPTA standard kernel memory management and the CPU memory management unit functionality are integrated in SMMS. This helps the building of protected and fault tolerant systems.
