Re: Intel Core i7 board options.

It sounds like the best starting point would be to use the classical industrial scenario for you. It allows you to start a Real-Time VM (RTVM) once ACRN and its Service VM is up and running. This is the Getting Started Guide for it: https://projectacrn.github.io/latest/getting-started/rt_industry_ubuntu.html
Are you running the DSP/PHY part of the stack under a Linux environment? If so, the tutorial above includes instructions on how to bring up a Linux environment and run a PREEMPT_RT kernel in it. That part would have to be adjusted if you need something different of course.
That NUC is based on a Kaby Lake processor, which does not support CAT (Cache Allocation Technology). This is something that could be useful if you are not getting the real-time performance you need when other apps are running in separate VMs. In any case, do not hesitate to reach out again if you face any issues and/or want some help with the performance tuning! We also have some notes that you may want to read on things to watch out for for real-time apps: https://projectacrn.github.io/latest/tutorials/rtvm_workload_design_guideline.html
