ARM TechCon

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls As I outlined recently, I am attending a number of conferences in the next couple of weeks. The first one, next week, is ARM TechCon in Santa Clara, CA. This event spans 3 days – 29-31 October. The conference itself covers all 3 days; the exhibition is just days 2 and 3. Each year this event seems to expand in size and scope and I have more things to do there … Mentor Graphics has a significant … Read More

Busy, busy, busy

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls This is the time of year that I think of as “conference season”; from mid-September until the Christmas holiday period there are numerous conferences and suchlike. As a significant part of my job is supporting such events on behalf of Mentor Embedded, this tends to be a busy time. To make life challenging, I am shortly to be involved in 3 conferences, in different countries, all in the space … Read More

big.LITTLE

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls From time to time, a concept or some terminology pops up and suddenly everyone is talking about it. That is usually the point when I think “I wonder what that is all about.” and start to investigate. That is what happened with ARM’s big.LITTLE concept. As a C programmer at heart, any terminology that uses the case of letters in an odd way gets my attention – and big.LITTLE is … Read More

Anil Khanna Last week, Mark Mitchell, the GM of our Open Source Solutions business unit hosted a webinar on the topic of C & C++ development for custom instruction set architectures with GNU or LLVM toolchains. With over 800 registrants, this event turned out to be one of our most popular webinars this year. If you are designing SoCs and are either already using or planning to leverage open source technology, … Read More

Anil Khanna Yesterday, we announced new versions of the Sourcery CodeBench and Sourcery Analyzer products. Significant new functionality has been added to these releases. In particular, the focus has been given to enhancing the embedded software debugging flow. In relation to this, Sourcery CodeBench now includes trace capability and supports analysis of both software trace (via Sourcery Analyzer technology) and … Read More

When an Innovative Plan Works!

Posted by Jamie Little

Jamie Little Free Nucleus RTOS source code? Just a few years ago if you would have told me that Mentor Graphics would be offering free-source-code for one of the most successful, popular and distributed RTOS’s in the world, I would not have believed it. Yet, for the last few quarters, Mentor is doing just that! The Nucleus Innovate Program was announced November 2012 and adoption is picking up quickly! To date, … Read More

Webinars

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls I often tell people that my job is that of a “professional enthusiast”. I get enthusiastic about products/technologies, then infect other people with that enthusiasm. Well, that is the idea anyway. I enjoy doing this most of all when I get to stand up in front of an audience, as a direct connection with real live human beings is the best way to communicate. However, there are times when … Read More

The floating point argument

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls I am on vacation and, all being well, by the time this posting goes live, I will be sunning myself on a Greek island. A couple of weeks ago, I posted a blog about the use of floating point. My colleague Brooks Moses [who did a guest blog post a while back] made a comment on that posting, pointing out that I had over-simplified my example. I am always happy to get such feedback. It transpired that Brooks … Read More

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls I am not really sure that I should be promoting this, but here goes … When I was at ESC the other week, I made the mistake of not hiding or looking frantically busy at some point. The result was that I got interviewed by some guys from ARM about the Stella robot that we were showing and the Nucleus RTOS that powers her. It has now been posted on YouTube. I do not think that this one is going to … Read More

ARM Development Conference

Posted by Colin Walls

Although readers in the US may think that it is a holiday today – and I hope you have a good one – it is just another regular Monday in Europe. Actually, as the Americans are celebrating getting rid of the Brits, maybe we should join in. I am traveling today to an ARM Development Conference in Stuttgart, Germany, which I am sure will be an interesting event. I actually find it curious that

ARM Tech Con 2010

Last week I attended the ARM Technical Conference in Santa Clara, California. I am not sure how many years this event has been running, but it seems to be going from strength to strength. There was a change to the management company this year, but the event format was basically the same: a 3 day multiple-stream technical conference, with a selection of keynotes and an associated exhibition area. Obviously,

jumping in with both feet

Posted by Hollis Blanchard

Hollis Blanchard ARM Ltd recently unveiled the virtualization capabilities in ARMv7-A, and they are impressive. Taking a step back though, here’s what impresses me the most: these guys jumped in with both feet. Consider for a moment the very measured approach Intel took with their virtualization extensions to the x86 architecture. They started by adding privilege modes beyond the traditional “ring” model. A later implementation … Read More
