Ricardo Anguiano So, what sorts of things can you create with Mentor Graphics’ embedded software development tools and platforms?  How about a self-balancing robot named Stella?  The Nucleus ReadyStart development platform, which includes the Nucleus RTOS, Sourcery CodeBench IDE and toolchain and Sourcery Analyzer performance and analysis tool, was used in the development of Stella. Stella the robot is an inherently … Read More

admin Integration and testing of IP blocks in large SOCs has been a manual, time consuming design effort. A new standard called IEEE P1687 (or "IJTAG") for IP plug-and-play integration was created to simplify these tasks and EDA tools are emerging to support the standard. IJTAG simplifies connecting any number of IJTAG-compliant IP blocks into an integrated, hierarchical network, allowing access … Read More

Mark Olen A system-level verification engineer once told me that his company consumes over 50% of its emulation capacity debugging failures. According to him there was just no way around consuming emulators while debugging their SoC design emulation runs. In fact when failures occur during emulation, verification engineers often turn to live debugging with JTAG interfaces to the Design Under Test. This enables … Read More

Colin Walls If you met someone in a bar, say, and you got talking, they are likely to ask what you do. You will probably reply that you are an embedded software developer. [Actually, in my experience, this can be a bit of a conversation killer. You might be better saying you are an airline pilot or a brain surgeon.] If they carry on talking with you, they might ask you what that job entails and you would probably … Read More
