TECHNOLOGY IN SYSTEMS
by Christopher Hallinan, Mentor Graphics
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...

by Ido Sarig, Wind RiverThe expansion of the Internet of Things is opening exciting new business opportunities with distributed connectivity and huge amounts of data. Knowing how and where to manage such intelligence is key to being able to realize its potential.
TECHNOLOGY IN CONTEXT
by Michael Plannerer, MEN Mikro ElektronikVITA 59: RCE, the result of cooperative efforts between VITA and PICMG, is bringing the modular, small form factor advantages of COM Express to the world of systems that require ruggedization, opening a wide range of new and exciting applications for small embedded systems.
TECHNOLOGY IN SYSTEMS
by Jon Aldama, EneaAdoption of the Yocto Project is the forward looking way to develop embedded Linux-based systems.
by Gerd Lammers, Real-Time SystemsVirtualization 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.
by Kim Hartman, TenAsysUsing 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.
by Claudio Ambra, Exor InternationalThe advance of integration and the standardization of system interfaces significantly increases the performance and efficiency of industrial control systems. The next step is the integration of control and interface functions onto a single die that unites CPU with FPGA.
