Kamran Shah Earlier this month at the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) I was interviewed by Andy Frame from ARM about some quick thoughts on the Internet of Things (IoT). I hope you’ll appreciate that I do call out that IoT does have an issue in many minds as being a buzzword. All the marketing fluff aside, my personal experiences have shown that connectivity and greater information can have a positive impact … Read More

Jamie Little We’re seeing an explosion around portable devices in the market. From consumer gadgets to medical devices to industrial instruments, battery operated, handheld and wearable devices are penetrating many sectors of the market. While these new class of devices tend to be more compact compared to prior generations, they offer a great deal of connectivity and functionality packed into these smaller and more … 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

Colin Walls After talking about low power CPU modes last week, I make no apology for returning to the topic. Reducing power on a single core embedded system is a challenge. With a multicore design, there are many other nuances. As with most system development, there are two highly interrelated facets to the process: design and verification [which software developers commonly call debugging]. Different semiconductor … Read More

Low power modes

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Power management is a hot topic – or maybe that should read “a cool topic” – among embedded developers of late. In the course of a recent conversation on the subject, I realized that there are, in effect, three kinds of power saving procedure that embedded software might effect: Use dynamic voltage and frequency scaling [DVFS] to tune the CPU performance to the needs of the … Read More

Conferences in perspective

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls My busy two week conference period is now behind me and, having had a bit of R&R in the meantime, I have had a chance to reflect on some of my experiences and impressions of the three events: ARM TechCon, ECS and IP-SoC. If you attended any of these events, please email or comment to share your thoughts. If you would like copies of any of my materials, please email … ARM TechCon, Santa Clara, … Read More

ECS & IP-SoC

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls As I mentioned previously, I am in the midst of a busy time for conferences. This week, I am at ECS in Stockholm, Sweden on Tuesday/Wednesday and IP-SoC in Grenoble, France on Thursday. I have a total of four presentations, along with some other activities at these events … ECS has become a significant fixture in the calendar for embedded events in the Nordic region and seems to get bigger … Read More

Three degrees of freedom

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Developing embedded software used to be easy. Actually, that is not true. It has never been easy, but certain matters were simpler. Embedded developers have always needed more control of code generation because, as I am often heard to chant, every embedded system is different and the priorities and requirements change from one to another. It used to be broadly a choice between speed and size of code, … Read More

Power management webinar

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Some time ago, I recorded the content for a Web seminar about power management in embedded software. Although I am talking about the subject generally, I am, of course, strongly alluding to the capabilities incorporated into Nucleus RTOS. The session was “broadcast” last week, but, if you would like to experience a rare example of me being caught on video, you can watch the recorded version. … Read More

Embedded World 2013

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls This week I am on my annual pilgrimage to Nuremberg, Germany to attend Embedded World. This is the first major conference of the year that covers embedded software and is, I am sure, now the largest event serving this community anywhere in the world. I have written about past visits and this year’s trip will be quite similar, except that I will be rather busy … Most years I have had one … Read More

Kamran Shah The Mentor Embedded team will be at Embedded World in Nuremburg Germany this week. In addition to a number of demos at the Expo (Hall 5, Booth 324) we are presenting a number of sessions as well. On Tuesday Colin Walls will give two presentations: His first session is titled “Power Management in Embedded Systems”. This is part of Session 4: System Level Design and will be from 3:15 pm to … Read More

More on low power CPU design

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls I recently wrote a posting about designing a CPU for low power by creating an instruction set where common sequences of instructions would have the minimum number of logic transitions. I hoped that I would get some feedback and I did. I had an email from Apostolos Leventis. I am always delighted to be contacted by blog readers, either by comment or email – even if it is critical or correcting … Read More
