Embedded systems: The evolution of embedded system design

Embedded systems: The evolution of embedded system design
Embedded systems design is evolving as businesses are under pressure to innovate faster than ever before. Legacy systems that were once purpose-built must be modernised or give way to new fluid and connected systems. Of course, the need for this transition didn’t happen overnight. Let’s review the history of embedded systems and how things have changed to drive this evolution. Guest blog written by Michel Genard, Wind River.

A closer look at the end-to-end security of SARA-R5

A closer look at the end-to-end security of SARA-R5
Recently launched by u-blox, the SARA-R5 series of LTE-M and NB-IoT modules for low power wide area (LPWA) IoT applications is their most advanced, secure and highly integrated mobile product. The module provides end-to-end security. This makes it ideal for IoT applications with long-term device implementations.

Linux reflections from a Wind River intern

Linux reflections from a Wind River intern
This summer, a marketing intern by the name of Ranjan Sikand proved that Wind River Linux truly is accessible for use by all. That being said, when the opportunity arose for an intern to work with the leading free open source Linux in the embedded industry, it made perfect sense that of the team of four interns, Ranjan was the one for the job.

VxWorks now has a pet snake

VxWorks now has a pet snake
I guess this was an easy one: Snake… Python… Hmmm… Part 1: Just to make sure, the Python I am referring to is the simple and easy to learn programming language with the nice blue/yellow logo. Yes: Python is exciting. While my personal view did not come into play when I pulled the trigger on this investment, I do like Python a lot. I discovered it with Blender years ago and wrote my first Python program to export a scene so I could process it in my raytracer, getting my first cooler than a cube image, (shown below).

How to achieve temperature control with a peltier module system

How to achieve temperature control with a peltier module system
A Peltier module, also known as a thermoelectric module, is a powerful device for thermal management, for use in applications such as laser products. When a current is passed through the module a temperature differential is created, causing one side to be hot while the other is cold. Depending on the design of the module and the applied voltage and current, a temperature differential over 100°C can be achieved. By Bruce Rose, Principal Applications Engineer at CUI

Virtualisation for embedded systems

Virtualisation for embedded systems
New technological trends are forcing a change in the world of embedded systems. Legacy architectures must give way to a more fluid, software-defined, and connected approach. While virtualisation has been a common practice in enterprise IT for years, it is just making its way into the embedded systems market. A robust virtualisation solution will enable this transition and offer a way to run any embedded system, old or new, while supporting the security, safety, reliability, and certification requirements of modern embedded systems.

e-paper displays can be used to improve safety in smoke alarms

e-paper displays can be used to improve safety in smoke alarms
The recent news story about an 11-year-old’s Samsung tablet battery smouldering and nearly causing a house fire while charging overnight has again raised the importance of installing smoke alarms in homes. The house where the incident occurred had no working smoke detector which could have alerted the boy’s family to the incident much earlier.

Apollo 11: A future in space, thanks to our past

Apollo 11: A future in space, thanks to our past
A chorus of alarms serenaded the nervous astronauts as the Eagle lunar module descended toward the moon’s surface. The tension was palpable, and the shrill ringing only added to their worries.  Guest blog written by Ranjan Sikand, Wind River Intern.

WiFi takes EV charging infrastructure to next level

WiFi takes EV charging infrastructure to next level
Around the world, the electrification of road vehicles shows no signs of slowing down. Driven by their reduced environmental impact, low operation and maintenance costs, and, crucially, government monetary and non‑monetary subsidies, a growing number of individuals and businesses are opting for electric vehicles (EVs) over vehicles powered by conventional internal combustion engines.

Where to start with auto high performance compute gateway?

Where to start with auto high performance compute gateway?
There are 3 major trends in the automotive industry that demands higher performance compute in the car. The next generation vehicle requires CAE (Connectivity, Automation and Electrification). Consider the vehicle a kind of consumer device with the level of connectivity and security requirements of networking equipment as well as the functional safety and reliability requirements of industrial equipment.
