Xmos has designed a modular prototyping board for its XA devices, which combine the company's own real-time, multithreaded processor core with an ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller.
ARM's latest core, the dual-issue M7 borrows features from the Cortex-R family for safety-critical applications as well as adding the option of cache memory.
Chris Rowen, CTO of the IP group at Cadence Design Systems, expects the internet of things (IoT) to cause a split in approaches to SoC design, one of a set of predictions about the nascent market.
Digia, the company that took on the cross-platform Qt toolkit from Nokia, has formed a subsidiary to focus on the software.
Intel aims to use a dual-pronged strategy that takes advantage of internet of things applications to push the x86 back into embedded-systems designs.
Manufacturing giant says we need a new category of WPUs - wearables processing units - to create a mass market and that ARM needs to go smaller than the MO.
ARM and Cadence have teamed up to show how system-level and implementation-level representations of a mixed-signal design can be linked together and kept in sync as the project progresses.
ARM is working on a heavily multithreaded version of its processor core to see if it can provide a more convenient alternative to GPUs.
Despite the swirl of interest in the internet of things progress is likely to be held back by interoperability issues according to speakers at the recent NI Week conference.
