Android, FreeRTOS top EE Times' 2013 embedded survey News & Analysis 2/27/2013 15 comments Android has become the most popular third-party operating system for embedded applications according to a survey of engineers – but as they become more familiar respondents may be starting to shy away from the OS for future projects.
VHF, VHF, wherefore art thou VHF? Engineering Pop Culture! 2/26/2013 39 comments I want a small box that can connect via WiFi to the Internet on one side and stream live television (in the form of a VHF signal) out of the other side.
An introduction to piezo MEMS oscillators Design How-To 2/26/2013 Post a comment Piezoelectrically transduced pMEMS resonators have emerged as one of the strong candidates for replacing quartz technology for high-frequency, low phase noise reference applications. In this paper, IDT introduces the design principles and performance characteristics of pMEMS oscillators.
Embedded systems next for hack attacks Design How-To 2/26/2013 4 comments Developers of embedded systems were told they need to take a holistic approach to security by Stuart McClure, CEO of Cylance, who provided the opening keynote at the Embedded World conference and exhibition.
SoC Verification Growing Up Fast Blog 2/26/2013 Post a comment Just as with iPhamily of products -- where each new format was adopted more quickly than the previous one -- SoC verification will benefit from the lessons learned during the development.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
