Are you familiar with the Tracealyzer and DevAlert tools from Percepio? How about the Luos distributed (not exactly an) operating system from Luos? I don’t know about you, but for me, the past few days have been jam-packed with my learning all sorts of exciting nuggets of knowledge and tidbits of trivia pertaining to the implementing, monitoring, and debugging of embedded systems using these little … Read More → "New Paradigms for Implementing, Monitoring, and Debugging Embedded Systems"
What do thermal management, VPX, SOSA and submarine volcanoes have in common? This week’s Fish Fry podcast! First, I take a closer look at a new research project from the University of Leeds that hopes to unlock the mysteries of submarine megaplumes (and the immense energy produced by them) with a fleet of remotely operated vehicles deep in the North East Pacific ocean. Steve Gudknecht (LCR Embedded Systems) … Read More → "Addressing the Gotchas: LCR Embedded Systems and the Case for Intelligent Modularity"
Perhaps not surprisingly in the light of all the cyber-attacks and data breaches we’ve been seeing recently, the topics of cyber-security, cyber-resiliency, and securing one’s supply chains are at the forefront of our minds.
Several of my own columns have touched these topics in recent months, such as Read More → "High Entropy is the Foundation for High Security"
Integration is the fundamental fuel that drives technical innovation. Each new node of Moore’s Law has allowed us to “Cram More Components” onto our integrated circuits, facilitating greater and greater levels of integration on chunks of silicon. But even in today’s “System on Chip” era, we do not truly have “systems” on a chip.
Sure, we can pack processors, a lot of close peripherals, and … Read More → "Xilinx Introduces Kria SoMs"
When most people hear the term “counterfeiting,” their knee-jerk reaction is to think of currency, the counterfeiting of which is as old as the concept of money itself. Around 400 BC, for example, metal coins in Greece were often counterfeited by covering a cheap-and-cheerful material with a thin layer of a more precious metal.
Or take the original American colonies. Throughout northeastern America, Native Americans would employ shell … Read More → "ID for the IoT? We Need the IDoT!"
I once worked for a large computer manufacturer that considered itself to be a “big cheese” in its headquarters’ hometown. For some reason, the folks who donned the undergarments of authority and strode the corridors of power decided to have a blitz on the local media channels — including newspapers, radio, and television — to remind the hoi polloi as to who we were and what we did. … Read More → "Want to Learn AI?
