ARM’s new high-performance Cortex-M7 processor brings advanced opportunities to engineers looking to bring more connectivity and performance to their embedded applications. By understanding the relative advantages to Cortex-M4 and adaptations, developers can realize substantial advantages and reduce time-to-market.
The ARM Cortex-M processor family is a range of scalable and compatible, energy-efficient, easy to use processors designed to help developers meet the needs of tomorrow’s smart andRead More...

by Amir Friedman, ConnectOneThe 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?
by Alan Grau, Icon LabsAbout 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.

by Joy Wrigley, Lattice SemiconductorWearable devices for consumer represent substantial market opportunities for design engineers who understand the implications of IoT, social media and ecosystem development.
by Dustin Franklin, GE Intelligent PlatformsCUDA – NVIDIA’s GPU architecture and programming API for harnessing the power of their massively parallel graphics processors – has been a de facto go-to for many performance-oriented developers since it was first released in 2006.
by Igor Serikov and Jacob Harel, Zeidman TechnologiesWe 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.
SMALL FORM FACTOR FORUM
by Tom Williams, Editor-In-ChiefSomething 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.
