John Day One of the highlights of IESF for me each year is Paul Hansen’s update on the automotive electronics industry. Hansen, publisher of The Hansen Report on Automotive Electronics (www.hansenreport.com), focused this year on three topics: competition, active safety, and distracted driving. Automotive electronics competition is already fierce and getting worse, according to Hansen. “The automotive electronics … 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 NXP has joined the Nucleus Innovate Program with its line of LPC ARM Cortex M4 family of microcontroller devices. The first Nucleus BSP available for NXP will be on the Hitex LPC4350 evaluation board. Just to mention a few of the onboard goodies, the LPC4350 has speeds up to 204MHz, USB, LCD, Ethernet with 1MB FLASH and 264kb SRAM, making the LPC3450 a very capable development platform. Moreover, the … Read More

John Day   Automotive LED (light emitting diode) lighting still costs more than other technologies but automakers can do more with it to distinguish their cars from the competition, so it’s likely that LED lights will be increasingly common. In recent announcements BMW selected HELLA to supply LED tail lights for the 2013 BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupe and Ford’s 2013 Mustang GT features a fog lamp based … Read More

Robin Bornoff It has been almost 3 years since I started this blog and I hope you’ve found it as interesting as I have cathartic. Although I’m not as yet bereft of topic ideas, I thought this would be a good time to solicit a guest blog from industry. It was either that or a Simponsesque montage of previous posts. I covered the highly successful provision of FloTHERM models of power packages from NXP … Read More

John Day If you are old enough to remember life as it was prior to the widespread availability of TV remotes, you might also remember wondering about their value. After all, how hard is it to walk across the room and turn the channel selector knob, there being at the time only a handful of channels? Now, think about giving up the remote (the phrase “…cold, dead fingers” comes to mind). The analogy occurred to … Read More
