How was EE Live! for you?

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls As I mentioned last week, I have just been to EE Live! in San Jose, California. Having arrived home a little while ago – 22 hours door to door, with baggage taking a little longer – I am pondering my impressions of this year’s event … Starting off with the positives. What I saw of the conference was buzzing. There were lots of classes available, covering all aspects of embedded … Read More

Embedded Systems Conference, EE Live!

6 Apr, 2014

Colin Walls A few weeks ago, I wrote about my involvement in a program to connect schools with industry, with a particular focus on technology. Part of this activity supports a UK government initiative [there are two words that I rarely seem to use next to one another] to teach every child to program computers. In the US, I believe the plan is for everyone to know how to program, which is rather ambitious. I am … Read More

Matt Radochonski Some of us from the Mentor Embedded team are spending the week in San Jose for the EELive Show and here are a few pictures we’ve snapped from the setup day and first day of open floor.  Most of these were taken by Ricardo Anguiano. A few shots of the Mentor Embedded Booth: Nuclues NanoPower BLE Demo: Nucleus Power Management Framework Demo: Folks milling about prior to show floor opening: A … Read More

Matt Radochonski As part of the Mentor Embedded team I’m excited to finally share that we’re partnering with AMD Embedded to provide open-source embedded Linux development for heterogeneous and multi-core processors from AMD. Last year in September AMD shared details about its embedded product roadmap; this provided a great deal of insight into the commitment and growing investment AMD is making into embedded systems … Read More

See you at EE live!

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls It is that time of year again! For many folks in the embedded software business, the arrival of Spring means that it must be time for the Embedded Systems Conference [ESC]. Over the years it has spawned a number of variants across the US [Chicago and Boston at least] and abroad [Brazil, India and UK come to mind]. But I think that most people regard the West coast event [in San Jose, then San Francisco, … Read More

Embedded Systems Conference, EE Live!

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

Anil Khanna The EE Live! Conference is just around the corner (March 31 – April 3, in San Jose). My colleague Matt Radochonski’s last blog summarized quite well what Mentor Embedded will be showcasing at the event. Apart from demos and presentations in the Mentor Embedded booth, we are also teaming up with AMD to offer free technical trainings in their booth. My colleague and Linux expert, Chris Hallinan, will … Read More

Colin Walls This week I am crossing to the Dark Side. I am a software engineer, but I work for an EDA company, which, although committed to supporting embedded software development, is dominated by hardware design knowledge and culture. There is always a kind of tension between hardware and software designers and I feel it is likely to be for ever thus. This week I am attending an event which is entirely focused … 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 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

Selecting a CPU

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls You might question why, in a blog that is supposed to be about embedded software, I am considering the selection of an embedded CPU, which is clearly a hardware matter. It would be a fair question, except that, in embedded system design, the development of hardware and software are inextricably entwined, each having an influence on the other. So, how do software considerations affect the selection of … Read More
