TECHNOLOGY IN SYSTEMS

Complexity in processors and systems leads to complexity in software, especially with a vast open source entity like Linux. The Yocto Project helps developers navigate the path through complexity, hardware compatibility, source dependencies and open source license issues.

In just over four years since its inception, the Yocto Project has become the de facto standard build system for custom embedded Linux distributions. Virtually every majorRead More...

Understanding Hypervisors and System Consolidation
Virtualization solutions for real-time and embedded applications are available now, and there are multiple implementations and approaches available to choose from. But what are the right questions to ask and the things to consider? It is important to look at the different approaches and understand some of the key attributes that an embedded, real-time hypervisor should possess.

Choose your Embedded Virtualization Solution Wisely
Using virtualization to consolidate various types of functions on multicore platforms is becoming increasingly popular. When evaluating virtualization approaches, however, the desire to employ the newest technologies needs to be traded off with the value of preserving elements of old designs.
