Anil Khanna The EE Live! Conference is just around the corner (March 31 – April 3, in San Jose). My colleague Matt Radochonski’s last blog summarized quite well what Mentor Embedded will be showcasing at the event. Apart from demos and presentations in the Mentor Embedded booth, we are also teaming up with AMD to offer free technical trainings in their booth. My colleague and Linux expert, Chris Hallinan, will … Read More

Anil Khanna Last week, an important announcement signaled the continuation as well as extension of support for the MIPS architecture within the Sourcery CodeBench embedded development environment. Imagination Technologies, who acquired MIPS recently, announced expanding their partnership with Mentor Graphics for Sourcery CodeBench support for all major MIPS CPU families. Imagination Technologies is well known for … Read More

Anil Khanna Last week, Mark Mitchell, the GM of our Open Source Solutions business unit hosted a webinar on the topic of C & C++ development for custom instruction set architectures with GNU or LLVM toolchains. With over 800 registrants, this event turned out to be one of our most popular webinars this year. If you are designing SoCs and are either already using or planning to leverage open source technology, … Read More

Anil Khanna Designing specialized hardware has been a popular approach by companies to differentiate and enhance their offerings. Typically, the functional and performance requirements for a target application drive this strategy. While customization begins with the hardware, for example custom DSP architectures (e.g. Qualcomm Hexagon DSP) or custom SoCs with updates to the ISA etc., in the end it is the software … Read More

Anil Khanna It is no secret that of all the design steps involved in developing an embedded application, debugging is probably the most crucial and where the most amount of time is spent. Code debugging is more a learned experience than anything else. The more embedded applications you code, build and debug, the better you get at it. Newer tools may give you greater visibility but you still need to know what to … Read More

Anil Khanna In a previous blog, I shared news of work that we at Mentor Embedded had done with NVIDIA to help enable development of Android applications for NVIDIA Tegra devices, within the Microsoft Visual Studio environment. This technology is a key part of the NVIDIA NSight Tegra (https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-nsight-tegra) product. Earlier in the month, we hosted a joint webinar with NVIDIA to talk about … Read More

Anil Khanna As the differentiation pendulum swings more towards the software side of the platform, it is becoming increasingly vital that embedded hardware and system integration companies enable their customers’ (and in turn their own) success via robust, professional quality software development kits (SDK). A SDK usually consists of a dev toolchain, optimized libraries, reference designs and documentation – … 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.

Anil Khanna With apologies to Shakespeare, let me start off by clarifying that we are referring to Free/Libre Open Source Software; about how it is changing the embedded landscape and more importantly the ideas on efficient ways to benefit from this constant stream of innovation. Very few fields in technology have felt such an impact from open source movement as has embedded software design. The proliferation of … Read More
