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

Matt Radochonski As Internet of Things development continues to expand into embedded, software and hardware integration will become critical.  Mentor Embedded’s Andrew Caples joined Bryan Lawrence from ARM, Eran Briman of CEVA, and Navraj Nandra of DesignWare to discuss the implications, including the role that software will play in IoT power management with SemiEngineering.com: “We see this huge push by our semiconductor … Read More

Andrew Patterson I have been to Embedded World in Nuremberg for the past 5 years,  and this was the busiest I have seen it.  New themes such as IoT (Internet of Things) were very evident,  and it was clear that many software and hardware suppliers attending Embedded World are building their market strategies around these themes.  In reality though,  engineers want the detail.  How does it actually work,  what do I … 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

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
