Colin Walls A frequent question which I am asked in person or by other means is “Where can I learn about embedded software?” Although this can come from young people looking for a career [in which case their choice of college course is probably the way forward], most such inquiries come from “normal” software engineers [i.e. folks who a used to programming desktop computers etc.] or hardware … 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

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

Anil Khanna This is part 2 of a current blog. Opening the source, I was quickly able to locate the code responsible for animation: Because of a 100% CPU cost, I was expecting to find something clumsy, but found the code to be reasonable. It is using Qt's built-in Property Animation framework. A quick Google search showed that it is the standard way of implementing animation in Qt. This is how Qt's own examples … 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

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

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 On desktop computers, data that you are working on right now, in an open application, is most likely just stored in RAM. When you are finished, the information is saved to disk for more permanent storage. That is the way it is for word processing, spreadsheets etc.; databases are bit different. The idea of having volatile memory for temporary use – where a power failure can cost you a morning’s … Read More
