Company Gives Away the Software; Charges for the Cloud
It’s a business model as old as time. Give away the product but charge for the service. It works for razors and blades. It works for bands who give away their music but make it up on tour revenues and merch. It works for a lot of software companies, especially in mobile gaming. It even works for drug dealers: The first fix is free, but after that it’ll cost you.
So in a way it’s no surprise that embedded software giant Wind River Systems is giving away one of its real-time operating systems. Indeed, the biggest surprise for most potential customers is that Wind River even had an RTOS to give away. What do you call that thing again? Read More

For industrial-grade applications, consumer-style connectors just don't cut it. You'd never use RJ45 where you really care about ruggedness or reliability. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Tom Wess of TE Connectivity about M8 and M12 high-reliability connecitivity solutions that will keep your system operating smoothly under harsh conditions.
Even though the newest, fastest standards get all the press, most of the work in the world is being done by standards like 2.5G Ethernet. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Juwayriyah Hussain of Altera about Altera's IP for 2.5G Ethernet. It'll have you up and running with Ethernet on your next design in no time.
Have you been wanting to try FPGA design? Were FPGA development boards and tools always too expensive and difficult to use? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Darren Zacher and Jim Burnham of Xilinx about ARTY, a new, easy-to-use $99 FPGA-based embedded development kit from Xilinx.
Synthesis of large designs can be a major bottleneck, particularly with the number of iterations often required and the long synthesis runtimes of current generation tools. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with David Stratman of Cadence Design Systems about the revolutionary new Genus massively-parallel synthesis technology. Genus promises to have an enormous impact on the synthesis bottleneck.
