In this dissertation we propose to develop, implement, and validate a software based clock synchronization algorithm in a many-core processor architecture, specifically the Kalray MPPA-256 architecture. This work was the objective of reducing the effect of clock skew in many-core architectures, so that we can take full advantage of this hardware type in real-time applications.
