Building Blocks for the Internet of Things
The concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) has become widespread in the past couple of years, making it a lucrative playground for engineers, companies and investors. What’s special about the IoT?

Beyond the Secure RTOS– Protecting Wirelessly Connected Endpoints from Cyber-attacks
About seventy percent of cyber-attacks target the application layer. Wireless connectivity creates an attack vector that hackers can exploit. While a secure RTOS is critical for security in embedded devices, they are just the foundation, not the complete solution.

Creating an Application-Specific Operating System to Power an Arduino Robot
We describe how we used a software tool called SynthOS withman off-the-shelf robot kit, to developed control algorithms, and create an RTOS to schedule and coordinate the various robot tasks. This demonstrates how writing code for SynthOS is straightforward, and SynthOS can easily adapt an RTOS to a very constrained platform.

Extending VME Life to 2020 and Beyond
Something of a shock has hit the world of VMEbus board manufacturers with the End of Life (EOL) notice on the TSI148 bridge chip with some doom-saying the “End of VME.” This news seems to have left suppliers with few options to continue serving customers who are still building and servicing systems with existing board designs. Yet this is a resilient industry and there are already paths forward. Here is one example.
