Colin Walls I have commented before on “fashions” in the embedded software world and part of my job is to understand what the hot topics among embedded developers are. A subject that just seems to run and run is USB. I posted about it a while back and promised to write more. In the meantime, we ran a Web seminar, which broke records for attendance, and published a new tech paper, which has proven incredibly popular. I … Read More

Nucleus USB, USB

1 Apr, 2010

Colin Walls Last week we ran a Web seminar about USB. It was very popular. We offered two shows and had well over 2000 registrations and hundreds of people attended each event - in one case the web seminar “room” was full. I hope that not too many people were disappointed. If you were there, thanks for coming along. If you were not and would like to hear about USB, the archived recording is online here. In these … Read More

Technology trends

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls In last week’s blog I talked about what was going on at Embedded World and made some observations about what seemed to be “hot”. I have been thinking about this and wondering which topics, technologies or products embedded software engineers actually think are important, interesting or exciting. Obviously trend surveys and the like give some indication, but I realized that I already had a tool at my … Read More

John Day I want lots of connectivity in my next car and have every reason to expect it (and, of course, to use it responsibly). We’re talking-cutting edge technology of the kind increasingly available to mid-range buyers; features like Internet access, voice recognition, full-color touch-screen displays, diagnostics, and various forms of infotainment. I was a bit surprised to learn that all of that and more … Read More

Colin Walls Today, for a change, instead of discussing some embedded software technology, I would like to put forward a concept for a product. It is an embedded system, which I believe could sell in high volumes. Maybe someone reading this blog would like to develop it. I am happy to waive any rights to royalties on the idea so long as we have an understanding that you will use Mentor Graphics products in your … Read More

Seeing is believing

Colin Walls I am a difficult customer. When I am buying something, I want see exactly what I am getting for my money. The words of the salesperson and the blurb on packages just does not convince me - I have been caught out too many times. Recently my daughter was after a charger for her iPod, as she was traveling without a computer and “needed” her iPod. What she wanted was a mains plug which has a USB socket … Read More

USB: easy, but ...

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls I love USB. I have worked with PCs since The Beginning, and I remember how it used to be. I would buy new peripheral device, spend lots of time and effort ripping apart my PC to install the card and then start worrying about software, drivers etc. It took for ever. By the time I had finished, any excitement I had about this new cool device had long since evaporated. USB changed all that. Nowadays, … Read More
