Colin Walls As usual, I attended the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose, CA last week. I guess it remains the foremost show in the embedded world in North America for sure - probably worldwide. My role was to make some presentations and look after the theater on the Mentor Embedded [our new branding for the Embedded Software Division of Mentor Graphics] booth. I did not have a chance to attend any conference … Read More

Stand-by or boot-up

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Like most people nowadays, I have a selection of electronic devices that have become part of the fabric of my life. I have certain expectations: I want a device to do what it is supposed to do. I want it to be easy to use. I am after reliability. I want it to consume the minimum amount of power - either to conserve battery life or to simply be environmentally friendly. Lastly, I want the device to be … Read More

Clocks will be Clocks..

Posted by Arvind Narayanan

Arvind Narayanan Clock designers are an enigma. Clock designers in general are die hard star wars fans, own vintage Porsches that leak oil by the gallon, usually have lava lamps in their offices/cubicles, wear fancy leather jackets in peak summer and have likeminded clock designers as best lunch buddies. Clock designers are notorious for making other lesser designers cry with their fancy PLL spice runs, non-negotiable … Read More

8 bits anyone?

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls It was well over 10 years ago and I was working a trade show booth with a techie colleague. It was quiet and we were bored. We chatted about things that interested us and eventually settled on our common ground: embedded software. He made a reference to “back in the 8 bit days”. I questioned this: “We are in the 8 bit days now!”. He did not believe me … It was not that he thought I was deceiving him … Read More

I started my career as a Microprocessor design engineer for … Read More

IC, Low Power

19 May, 2009

Colin Walls It used to be simple. There were desktop operating systems - like Windows and UNIX - and real time operating systems, like Nucleus OS. There was never a question of one being better or more appropriate than the other. They were different animals and no comparison made sense. Then someone had the idea that maybe Linux could be used for an embedded application and it all changed. The idea did not make … Read More

Colin Walls The Embedded Systems Conference in California is undoubtedly the #1 event in the embedded software world each year. I am fortunate enough to be able to attend most years and it is very interesting to see what’s new and look out for trends. My first impression this year was of peace and calm. The show itself felt quiet. I have not yet seen the official visitor figures, but I am sure they’re down on … Read More
