Jamie Little We’re seeing an explosion around portable devices in the market. From consumer gadgets to medical devices to industrial instruments, battery operated, handheld and wearable devices are penetrating many sectors of the market. While these new class of devices tend to be more compact compared to prior generations, they offer a great deal of connectivity and functionality packed into these smaller and more … Read More

Colin Walls Last week, as I previously previewed, was Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany. Now that I am back home, footsore and tired [and still harboring the symptoms of a head cold that makes traveling even less fun than normal], I can reflect on my experiences. When I return from such events, it is always expected that I will have gained a firm impression of what the event was all about and what trends were … Read More

An RTOS with a GUI

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Embedded systems are evolving - that is blindingly obvious. But that does not just mean that we are finding more and more uses for smart devices. It also means that embedded applications, that have been around for some years, are becoming more sophisticated. A few examples: central heating controllers, intruder alarms, kitchen appliances, scientific and medical instruments ... The list goes on. The … Read More

Colin Walls The Internet of Things is a big issue right now, which I wrote about a few months back. Tomorrow I am moderating a Google hangout titled "Internet of Things (IoT) Connectivity for Embedded Devices" where some experts will discussing this important matter. You can register here and will have the chance to pose questions online. If you cannot attend, a recording of the session will be available afterwards. … Read More

Anil Khanna Occasionally, I get a chance to introduce our engineers, and showcase their work, through this blog. This time, it is the turn of Asad Zia, our resident expert on all things graphics and UI related. Asad and I have worked on a few projects before, notably this whitepaper on Debugging Graphics Synchronization issues with Sourcery Analyzer. I recently had a chance to collaborate with Asad again as he … Read More

Colin Walls Apart from writing about embedded software matters, I also read widely and enjoy the perspectives offered by many of the key figures in the field. One writer, who always gets my attention, is Jim Turley. Jim is never afraid of raising contentious issues and tends to take something of a chip-centric view of embedded systems. He seemed surprised, in a recent article, to find that engineers’ priorities … Read More

Low power modes

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Power management is a hot topic – or maybe that should read “a cool topic” – among embedded developers of late. In the course of a recent conversation on the subject, I realized that there are, in effect, three kinds of power saving procedure that embedded software might effect: Use dynamic voltage and frequency scaling [DVFS] to tune the CPU performance to the needs of the … Read More

Anil Khanna It is no secret that demand for electricity far outstrips available supply. Demand from both the rapid urbanization of developing economies as well as emergence of new applications in developed nations is driving this trend. Generating additional capacity is one, albeit quite expensive, option to deal with this imbalance. Alternatively, turning to technology to help address this issue is another. Source: … Read More

Jamie Little This is not your daddy’s 18-wheeler! We’re all quite familiar 18-wheeler diesel trucks. We see them on the road every day. They are a critical part of our mass infrastructure in various capacities. From moving companies, freight liners, to independent truckers, to retailers and package delivery, there are lots of big trucks on the road – collectively consuming significant amounts of diesel fuel. … 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
