Abstract

Interrupt processing in current PC1 systems is host centric. This architecture works well in PC systems that have a single processor or processor card. However, this architecture causes problems in embedded real-time systems, as well as multi- processor systems. This paper describes how to improve interrupt processing in PC1 systems.
