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

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

Colin Walls A majority of embedded devices nowadays are implemented using an operating system of some kind. This has not always been the case and need not be today. Historically, using an OS was less common mainly because the applications were less complex and CPUs less powerful. Some thought is needed, at an early stage in a project, to determine which OS to use [or whether to use one at all] … This all … Read More

Colin Walls In the light of recent announcement of Mentor Embedded Hypervisor and discussions about embedded hypervisor technology, I am pleased to have another opportunity to host the ramblings [his word] of my colleague Faheem Sheikh. I would question his implying that it is easy to make a perfect cheese omelette from a recipe … An oft-cited analogy for software working out-of-the-box (OOTB) is that of … 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
