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.
The second part of our series illustrates VP tools and techniques using the familiar example of Linux bring-up on an ARM-based SoC.
The first in a series of articles about using virtual prototyping techniques to achieve more effective debug.
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.
The internet of things (IoT) is the predicted consequence of massive growth in the number of devices that will be connected to the internet over the coming decade. Cisco calculated in 2012 that some 8.7 billion computers of various types had the ability to connect to the internet and that this number, driven by rapid […]
SoC integration can be accelerated by using virtualization to make the benefits of emulation more accessible to both hardware and software engineers.
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.
