"I want my IoT"

Posted by Scott Salzwedel

Scott Salzwedel The common refrain, “I want my MTV” was heard nearly 30 years ago when MTV was first starting out. Back then there was a lot of excitement, anticipation, and pure enthusiasm as to what MTV might become. Fast forward to today and we have yet another cultural (and technical) movement afoot. It seems everyone is talking about the Internet of Things (IoT) and how our boring, mundane lives will be soon … Read More

Kamran Shah Earlier this month at the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) I was interviewed by Andy Frame from ARM about some quick thoughts on the Internet of Things (IoT). I hope you’ll appreciate that I do call out that IoT does have an issue in many minds as being a buzzword. All the marketing fluff aside, my personal experiences have shown that connectivity and greater information can have a positive impact … Read More

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

Jamie Little I visited Embedded World Germany several weeks ago and in addition to show being extremely vibrant, and saw a lot of buzz around the Internet of Things (IoT) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).  Semiconductor vendors, hardware vendors and software vendors alike were talking about IoT in various ways.   And why not?  The IoT momentum is quite significant given the billions of embedded devices that we expect … Read More

Matt Radochonski Like most of you we’ll be in San Jose the first week in April to attend the EE Live! Conference and Expo.  Before visiting the Lick Astronomical Observatory, stop by our booth (#1812) to learn about connected smart meters, Internet of Things (IoT) medical devices, and power management. We’ll be presenting the following demonstrations at the booth all week: Connectivity with bluetooth for … 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

Colin Walls My busy two week conference period is now behind me and, having had a bit of R&R in the meantime, I have had a chance to reflect on some of my experiences and impressions of the three events: ARM TechCon, ECS and IP-SoC. If you attended any of these events, please email or comment to share your thoughts. If you would like copies of any of my materials, please email … ARM TechCon, Santa Clara, … Read More

ECS & IP-SoC

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls As I mentioned previously, I am in the midst of a busy time for conferences. This week, I am at ECS in Stockholm, Sweden on Tuesday/Wednesday and IP-SoC in Grenoble, France on Thursday. I have a total of four presentations, along with some other activities at these events … ECS has become a significant fixture in the calendar for embedded events in the Nordic region and seems to get bigger … Read More

Colin Walls Some time ago, I recorded the content for a Web seminar about power management in embedded software. Although I am talking about the subject generally, I am, of course, strongly alluding to the capabilities incorporated into Nucleus RTOS. The session was “broadcast” last week, but, if you would like to experience a rare example of me being caught on video, you can watch the recorded version. … Read More

Embedded World 2013

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls This week I am on my annual pilgrimage to Nuremberg, Germany to attend Embedded World. This is the first major conference of the year that covers embedded software and is, I am sure, now the largest event serving this community anywhere in the world. I have written about past visits and this year’s trip will be quite similar, except that I will be rather busy … Most years I have had one … Read More

In the news

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls It is quite common, as I am sure it is for you, that someone asks me what I do for a living. Most of the time I try to get away with just saying that I work for a software company. If pressed for more detail, I end up explaining what embedded systems are all about. Sometimes, when really pushed, I talk about how I actually spend my time – writing articles, do webinars, presenting at conferences, … Read More
