Embedded Software Blog

10 Mar, 2014

Colin Walls I am always interested in receiving feedback and comment on my blog posts and, when I recently wrote about embedded software engineering priorities, I did receive some interesting responses. When I get some useful input, I commonly ask permission to publish it. Sometimes this is refused, but usually I am given leave to post the comments. In this case, the comments are, IMHO, quite controversial … … Read More

Embedded World - "This is not EDA"

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Last week, as I previously previewed, was Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany. Now that I am back home, footsore and tired [and still harboring the symptoms of a head cold that makes traveling even less fun than normal], I can reflect on my experiences. When I return from such events, it is always expected that I will have gained a firm impression of what the event was all about and what trends were … Read More

Kamran Shah At Embedded World in Nuremberg last week I had many discussions on the "Internet of Things" or IoT. Depending on the person I was talking to we'd cover areas such as memory footprint, what is a microkernel, how to introduce connectivity without impacting reliability, how to build power efficient devices and of course security. It really does become about the whole "system" and in the case of IoT devices … Read More

An RTOS with a GUI

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Embedded systems are evolving - that is blindingly obvious. But that does not just mean that we are finding more and more uses for smart devices. It also means that embedded applications, that have been around for some years, are becoming more sophisticated. A few examples: central heating controllers, intruder alarms, kitchen appliances, scientific and medical instruments ... The list goes on. The … 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

Colin Walls Apart from writing about embedded software matters, I also read widely and enjoy the perspectives offered by many of the key figures in the field. One writer, who always gets my attention, is Jim Turley. Jim is never afraid of raising contentious issues and tends to take something of a chip-centric view of embedded systems. He seemed surprised, in a recent article, to find that engineers’ priorities … Read More
