Effective low-power design for embedded-systems will take a new culture of close collaboration between hardware and software engineers.
This part illustrates the technique using examples addressing memory corruption, multicore systems and cache coherency with particular reference to watchpoints.
If you're going to be working on any aspect of multicore embedded system design, a newly published book titled "Real World Multicore Embedded Systems" will be an excellent guide.
Mind how you go. The only truly free thing about open source tools is the download itself. There is, however, a 'third way', matching professional support to these often useful options.
Embedded systems are increasingly coming under attack as they hook up to the internet. Coding standards have emerged that make it easier to build code that is secure from the bottom up.
Now companies in any tier can use development kits as a platform to speed development, bridge the hardware-software divide and build out ecosystems quickly.
The technique drove ‘agile systems development’ for the programmable logic vendor’s new product line.
The business case behind how virtual prototyping speeds development, improves hardware and software quality, and improves ROI.
Embedded hardware and software are experiencing exciting advances but free, open source technologies only go so far in connecting them. Help is on the way.
OpenCL aims to open up the performance of graphics processors to other applications. It is also one more way in which compilation is being moved to runtime to make it easier to move code dynamically across heterogeneous platforms.
