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

ARM TechCon

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls As I outlined recently, I am attending a number of conferences in the next couple of weeks. The first one, next week, is ARM TechCon in Santa Clara, CA. This event spans 3 days – 29-31 October. The conference itself covers all 3 days; the exhibition is just days 2 and 3. Each year this event seems to expand in size and scope and I have more things to do there … Mentor Graphics has a significant … Read More

Colin Walls This is the time of year that I think of as “conference season”; from mid-September until the Christmas holiday period there are numerous conferences and suchlike. As a significant part of my job is supporting such events on behalf of Mentor Embedded, this tends to be a busy time. To make life challenging, I am shortly to be involved in 3 conferences, in different countries, all in the space … Read More

big.LITTLE

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls From time to time, a concept or some terminology pops up and suddenly everyone is talking about it. That is usually the point when I think “I wonder what that is all about.” and start to investigate. That is what happened with ARM’s big.LITTLE concept. As a C programmer at heart, any terminology that uses the case of letters in an odd way gets my attention – and big.LITTLE is … Read More

Jamie Little Free Nucleus RTOS source code? Just a few years ago if you would have told me that Mentor Graphics would be offering free-source-code for one of the most successful, popular and distributed RTOS’s in the world, I would not have believed it. Yet, for the last few quarters, Mentor is doing just that! The Nucleus Innovate Program was announced November 2012 and adoption is picking up quickly! To date, … Read More

John Day Renesas made a rather significant announcement this week, launching the newest system-on-chip (SoC) in its R-Car series. It refers to the device – the R-Car H2 – as “a complete solution for next-generation high-end multimedia and navigation” with “high performance and state-of-the-art 3D graphics capabilities.” The performance comes in part from ARM’s big.LITTLE processing technology, which in this … Read More
