Anil Khanna Citius, Altius, Fortius Faster, Higher, Stronger – the Olympic motto could just as easily be applied to the expectations driving the alarming rate of evolution of embedded hardware. In the form of today’s mobile devices, we now hold more processing power than high-end PCs of yesteryears! A single mobile device has replaced the functionality of a myriad of discrete devices: GPS, camera, pager, voice … Read More

Kamran Shah There are a number of heterogeneous multicore SoCs being introduced including the Vybrid platform from Freescale and the Jacinto 6 platform from Texas Instruments. At CES in January 2014 we demonstrated how the communication between Cortex M4 and Cortex A15 cores on the TI Jacinto 6 can be implemented using rpmsg. The two videos below show this demonstration in action. The first video illustrates how … Read More

Jamie Little The Nucleus Innovate Program continues to attract small companies from many different segments in the embedded market. In fact, we’re seeing several small automotive companies join the Nucleus Innovate Program. Companies like HGM Automotive Electronics, who specialize in transmission shift kits, throttle sensors, transmission pans and accessories. From an embedded system perspective, their COMPUSHIFT … Read More

John Day I can’t recall the last time I noticed one of the automotive electronics companies I cover introducing not just a new product but a new product category. Perhaps there have been many and I just can’t recall them, but no matter. The company in this case is Texas Instruments (TI), a very large manufacturer of analog semiconductor devices, and the new product category is inductance-to-digital converters, … Read More

  This morning I got an email from my colleague Jamie Little, who was rather excited (rightfully so) to share some news and requested that I post this in my blog. Jamie manages our Alliances Program and works very closely with our semiconductor partners thus keeping up to date on any new developments in the hardware side of the embedded world. Here is Jamie’s message: Texas Instruments has recently

  HCC-Embedded (www.hcc-embedded.com) recently released a version of its MISRA-C:2004-compliant TCP/IP stack for Texas Instruments’ Hercules ARM microcontrollers. The stack combines MISRA with HCC’s own coding standard to create a concise C language subset capable of “clear and robust code without ambiguities,” and thus suitable for many safety critical embedded applications, according to the company.

John Day Texas Instruments (TI) has launched a new family of ARM Cortex-based microcontrollers (MCUs) for safety-critical transportation as well as industrial and medical applications. It said its Hercules platform is designed to protect against systematic failures, detect random failures, and provide the documentation needed to obtain ISO 26262 ASIL-D or IEC 61508 SIL-3 safety certifications, which should ease … Read More

John Day National Semiconductor, which we might not hear from all that much longer, since it’s becoming part of Texas Instruments, announced this week that Audi will include National’s FPD-Link III Ser/Des automotive infotainment chipset in the 2012 Audi A3. Other Audi models are expected to get the current-generation chipset, though there was no specific word on which models or when. National says earlier FPD-Link … Read More

John Day I want things to work the way they are supposed to – especially if it’s something important, like a car. I can imagine automotive electronics engineers must feel the same way about the chips they specify. “I remember one day that a customer asked me, ‘What are you going to do to ship me zero defects,’” recalls James Williams, automotive development quality manager at Texas Instruments. “I nearly … Read More
