Several modern systems, from ubiquitous mobile phones to powerful gaming machines, contain multiple heterogeneous processing cores. In a modern phone, for example, a general purpose processor manages the human machine interface, while a DSP manages the baseband signal processing. Usually, these heterogeneous multi-processor systems isolate tasks, and execute the isolated tasks in separate processors.
