The recent technological advancements and market trends are causing an interesting phenomenon towards the convergence of High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Embedded Computing (EC) domains. On one side, new kinds of HPC applications are being required by markets needing huge amounts of information to be processed within a bounded amount of time. On the other side, EC systems are increasingly concerned with providing higher performance in real-time, challenging the performance capabilities of current architectures. The advent of next-generation many-core embedded platforms has the chance of intercepting this converging need for predictable high-performance, allowing HPC and EC applications to be executed on ecient and powerful heterogeneous architectures integrating general-purpose processors with many-core computing fabrics. This convergence, however, raises the problem about how to guarantee timing requirements in presence of parallel execution. This paper presents a novel approach to address this challenge through the design of an integrated framework for the execution of workload-intensive applications with real-time requirements.
