Andrew Patterson I have been to Embedded World in Nuremberg for the past 5 years,  and this was the busiest I have seen it.  New themes such as IoT (Internet of Things) were very evident,  and it was clear that many software and hardware suppliers attending Embedded World are building their market strategies around these themes.  In reality though,  engineers want the detail.  How does it actually work,  what do I … Read More

Colin Walls Complexity never, in itself, impresses me. I am impressed people’s ability to understand complex ideas and create complex machines, but a truly elegant and simple solution is always what gives me most pleasure. This might beg the question as to why I work in software – a business well known for creating incredibly complex things. I often ask myself the same question. Systems where there … Read More

Kamran Shah Our team has been busy working a new demonstration based on the TI Jacinto 6 automotive processor. If you’re interested in seeing it in person, your first chance will be next week at CES in Las Vegas at the GENIVI demonstration showcase. The Jacinto 6 platform is an interesting SoC that brings together a dual core Cortex™ A15 and two dual core Cortex™ M4 processors. The demonstration we’re … Read More

Colin Walls Last week there was a new release of Sourcery CodeBench, which I saw somewhere posted as “A Christmas present from Mentor Embedded”. As this release covers a wide range of functionality in both Sourcery CodeBench and Sourcery Analyzer, I thought it would be interesting to focus on a specific new feature and dig into the technology a little. I have been investigating Diagnostic Log and Trace … Read More

Jamie Little When shopping for a new car, truck or SUV, buyers are becoming more intrigued with the advancements of In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems and technologies. In fact, IVI capabilities are becoming major decision factors for most technology savvy consumers. And for this case, savvy consumers can mean anyone with a smartphone, teenagers (of course!) or perhaps a soccer mom with kids who have smart devices. … Read More

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
