Jamie Little The first Mentor Embedded product (Nucleus) that was released for an ARM-based device was back in 1993 on an ARM6 platform. To site a few references from that time, the project for the ARM6 platform was called Acorn RISC Machine (evolved to Advanced RISC Machine (ARM)), ARM didn’t have nearly as many licensees as they do today, the top RISC processors from that time no longer exists, and the Nucleus … Read More

Kamran Shah Andrew Patterson hosted a webinar that was very popular recently on the options for making use of Android in IVI systems. This includes porting Android to run directly on an SoC as the sole operating system, running Android in conjunction with another operating system such as Linux with use of a hypervisor, or making use of Android via a Linux Container. As a follow-up Ned, one of experts on Linux Containers, … Read More

Anil Khanna In a previous blog, I shared news of work that we at Mentor Embedded had done with NVIDIA to help enable development of Android applications for NVIDIA Tegra devices, within the Microsoft Visual Studio environment. This technology is a key part of the NVIDIA NSight Tegra (https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-nsight-tegra) product. Earlier in the month, we hosted a joint webinar with NVIDIA to talk about … Read More

Jamie Little Voice activated features such as placing calls have been available in automobiles for many years. Today the most advanced systems under development and research are in the areas of autonomous vehicles. At the Embedded World Conference 2013 I was reminded about a car from the 1980’s that already had all these capabilities built in. Yes it was KITT (the Knight Industries Two Thousand)! The car was right … Read More

Anil Khanna As the differentiation pendulum swings more towards the software side of the platform, it is becoming increasingly vital that embedded hardware and system integration companies enable their customers’ (and in turn their own) success via robust, professional quality software development kits (SDK). A SDK usually consists of a dev toolchain, optimized libraries, reference designs and documentation – … Read More

Kamran Shah This year was my first time attending CES. The first day was definitely a little overwhelming, with well over 100,000 people there the show is massive. We’ve been hearing about connected devices for a while and this show was no different. Smart TVs where being touted by most companies, there was a lot more phone and tablet connectivity to appliances. The biggest shock for me were the number of … Read More
