Matt Radochonski A few weeks ago we held one of our Google+ On-Air Hangouts on Internet of Things Security.  You can view the full video using the embedded YouTube video below.  During this hangout we received some excellent questions from the audience, and one of our presenters, Felix Baum has taken the time to answer three of them. How is the transition between secure and normal carried out? What part controls that? TrustZone … Read More

Kamran Shah Earlier this month at the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) I was interviewed by Andy Frame from ARM about some quick thoughts on the Internet of Things (IoT). I hope you’ll appreciate that I do call out that IoT does have an issue in many minds as being a buzzword. All the marketing fluff aside, my personal experiences have shown that connectivity and greater information can have a positive impact … Read More

Kamran Shah Last week Freescale announced two new SoCs based on the Layerscape architecture to the QorIQ family of processing platforms. These new SoCs extend the QorIQ family to a high performance networking solution at a lower power. The QorIQ LS2085A and LS2045A provide this power optimized performance based on 64-bit ARM Cortex-A57 cores. As Freescale’s preferred partner we’ll of course make sure … Read More

Jamie Little I visited Embedded World Germany several weeks ago and in addition to show being extremely vibrant, and saw a lot of buzz around the Internet of Things (IoT) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).  Semiconductor vendors, hardware vendors and software vendors alike were talking about IoT in various ways.   And why not?  The IoT momentum is quite significant given the billions of embedded devices that we expect … Read More

Anil Khanna Citius, Altius, Fortius Faster, Higher, Stronger – the Olympic motto could just as easily be applied to the expectations driving the alarming rate of evolution of embedded hardware. In the form of today’s mobile devices, we now hold more processing power than high-end PCs of yesteryears! A single mobile device has replaced the functionality of a myriad of discrete devices: GPS, camera, pager, voice … Read More

Colin Walls After talking about low power CPU modes last week, I make no apology for returning to the topic. Reducing power on a single core embedded system is a challenge. With a multicore design, there are many other nuances. As with most system development, there are two highly interrelated facets to the process: design and verification [which software developers commonly call debugging]. Different semiconductor … Read More

Ricardo Anguiano Software development on early stage custom hardware platforms is not for mere mortals. The hardware isn’t finished yet, so the software team must wait for prototype boards to arrive. Then there’s the build, flash, test and debug cycle. Traditional, JTAG and printf-style debugging are hard enough but when application performance must be improved, there’s when the real wizardry takes … Read More

Felix Baum At Tokyo Embedded Tradeshow last week, the Mentor ESD team was very busy as we had many medical customers stopping by our booth to find out how Mentor Embedded Hypervisor can help them to address regulatory and ethical issues with protecting sensitive patient information and industrial customers to make industrial equipment secure and more reliable. The explosion in medical devices is due in part to … Read More

Colin Walls My busy two week conference period is now behind me and, having had a bit of R&R in the meantime, I have had a chance to reflect on some of my experiences and impressions of the three events: ARM TechCon, ECS and IP-SoC. If you attended any of these events, please email or comment to share your thoughts. If you would like copies of any of my materials, please email … ARM TechCon, Santa Clara, … Read More

Felix Baum A very good turnout at the webinar I have recently hosted on the topic of Enabling Multi-OS Embedded Systems with Hypervisor Technology. During webinar, I talked a bit about trends in the embedded industry, the way hardware and software vendors are dealing with these trends, walked through the most popular Operating Systems configurations – SMP, AMP and sAMP, highlighted the benefits of embedded virtualization, … Read More

Embedded hypervisors

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Some technologies, it seems to me, should not really exist. They do, however, because they address a specific need. Typically, such technologies stretch something to make it perform in a way that was not originally intended. An example would be the fax machine. In a paper-based office environment, there was a frequent need to move documents from A to B. Initially, this resulted in the mail. But fax … Read More

Colin Walls Editor’s note: From time to time, I have guest bloggers. Findley Merritt is a social media specialist with Mentor Graphics and my social media coach. She attended ARM Tech Con in October and created a quick roundup through the eyes of an ARM newbie.  If you were at ARM Tech Con, I was one of the few millennials running around with my head buried in my phone tweeting. I also happened to be one … Read More
