Android, Meego and Embedded Linux in Vertical Markets

Linux®-based systems have been dominant in enterprise networking for more than a decade. They have been the basis of consumer electronics devices dating back to the original TiVo DVR in 1999, and wireless handsets beginning with the NEC phones for DoCoMo in 2003. However, many vertical markets are only now seeing new devices built on […]

Hypervisors and the Power Architecture

The use of multicore processors is on the rise to meet inexorable demand for increasingly sophisticated functionality in embedded systems. Hardware virtualization technology provides a complementary and game-changing approach to maximizing the utility of that extra silicon horsepower. The Power Architecture has included hardware virtualization support since 2001 in its server-based instruction set architecture (ISA). [...]

Rapid prototyping for MCUs

The increasing capability and performance of microcontrollers suggests that they can now reach markets for which they were never previously envisioned, particularly as 32-bit devices move into the mainstream. However, prototyping and even researching new application spaces is difficult with existing tools. These are highly optimized for existing uses, but as such very unwieldy when […]

A profitable discipline

The software food chain Software has become a ubiquitous part of many products and services, some of which are distributed and used on a massive scale. Think of cloud computing, online banking and the engines for today’s cellphones and cameras. Competition requires that such new products are developed more quickly than ever before and yet […]

Using Open Virtual Platforms to build, simulate and debug multiprocessor SoCs

The Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) initiative aims to help resolve the difficulties that arise today when modeling multicore systems-on-chip (SoC) so that designers can perform early and timely test of the embedded software that will run on the end devices. As architects continue to add more cores to meet hardware design goals, the complexity of […]
