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

Phil Burr How many times have you tried prodding at the screen of a device and only after it has failed to respond have you remembered that it isn’t actually a touch screen? I know that I have done this, and after talking to a friend of mine who is a doctor in my local hospital, I am pleased to know that I am not the only one! It is no surprise that the medical profession’s expectations of user interfaces has … Read More

Using an SMTP client

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls I always find it satisfying to see simple solutions to apparently complex problems and the world of embedded software certainly lends itself to some creativity. My concept of “simple” is quite broad, but essentially encompasses anything that is easy to understand [for me] and ideally avoids reinvention of any wheels. A while ago, I wrote about incorporating a Web server [HTTP server actually] … 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

Jamie Little In the high-tech market, the IoT is driving connectivity requirements in devices across many segments. Considering the number of embedded medical devices hospital, you can quickly imagine areas where Wi-Fi connectivity can be used to connect devices, patients, administrators and doctors. For example, Wi-Fi can be applicable in the doctor’s office, in the operating room, at the nurse’s station, in the … Read More

RTOS’s have been around for a long time in the embedded industry.   And with the introduction of the TI RTOS, Freescale’s MQX, FreeRTOS and several others, I hear all the time that “RTOS’s have become a commodity.”  And to some extent, I agree.   While every RTOS has its pros and cons with various features and benefits, selecting the right one for “your” application requirements can be a little tricky.

Phil Burr Ever since the launch of the iPhone there has been a focus on user interfaces (UI) in embedded devices. This initial UI focus was on consumer devices – initially other smartphones, but it then moved to other consumer products like TV and set-top-box. It is fair to say that Mentor has helped a significant number of the developers of these products create some pretty stunning UIs using Mentor’s own UI … Read More

Today, more ‘things’ are connected to the Internet than there are people on the planet. Connectivity was a major theme at last week’s Freescale FTF event in San Antonio, Texas. There were over 1300 attendees, and around 200 technical sessions over the course of 4 days. An impressive range of SoC solutions aimed at connectivity covered such diverse applications, from Medical, Energy Management, Safety

Software saves lives

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls I am very interested in medical electronics, as I have written about here previously. In particular, I am always keen to learn more about the role of software in facilitating the functionality of devices. I recently encountered a particularly interesting example of the impact that the software can have. Just before Christmas, I went to a session to donate blood - specifically I donate platelets, which … Read More

Colin Walls I have always for medical electronics interesting and I have blogged about it from time to time [here and here, for example]. Part of the reason for my interest stems from an occasional feeling that so much of the electronics around me is ultimately pointless. Many Mentor Embedded customers are making consumer devices, cell phones and other gadgets. Do we really need all of these? Aren’t they really … Read More
