"We welcome Trango Virtual Processors to the consortium," said Markus Levy, Multicore Association president. "Leveraging its extensive experience in the embedded virtualization business, Trango has already made significant contributions to the Multicore Association's Hypervisor Working Group."

"Multicore adoption is being pursued at a number of levels by a wide variety of processor vendors and OEMs. The Multicore Association delivers an enormously valuable service by providing guidance and a common forum for the industry to use to overcome obstacles to the rapid adoption of this very promising technology," said Trango Vice President and General Manager, Brad Suessmith. "We look forward to working collaboratively with companies such as Nokia Siemens Networks, Freescale, and other virtualization providers such as VirtualLogix and Wind River, to develop portable application programming interfaces that will facilitate the integration of virtualization technology in multicore applications across a wide variety of industries."

The Multicore Association provides three levels of membership, with executive board, working group, and university members. The executive board helps determine the overall direction of the organization. Working group members are eligible to work on any of the working groups. University members may participate in any of the Multicore Association's ongoing development work, for which current projects include multicore virtual machine standardization, multicore resource management, multicore programming practices, and debug functionality to support the recently released Multicore Communication API (MCAPI).
