  • ARM TechCon 2014: All Things ARM-based Automotive

    Yesterday at ARM TechCon 2014, I gave a presentation titled “Automotive Applications ARM® Cortex®-R5 MCU.” While still a relatively new conference, ARM TechCon has the ability to bring some of the most innovative companies together to talk about the collaborative work they’re doing with ARM. As a result, my session was packed with intelligent industry

  • A Closer Look at MCUs

    Introduction Part one of this blog series will take a closer look at microcontrollers (MCUs) – commonly referred to as a self-contained, system-on-a-chip (SoC). MCUs have internal flash memory and are intended to operate with a minimum amount of external support ICs.  This blog covers many of the features and functions of MCUs. Let’s dive

  • Automotive Technology Takes the Stage at Telematics Detroit

    The market for connected cars continues to grow at a rapid pace. In fact, a new report from Analysys Mason claims that by 2024, a whopping 89 percent of new cars sold worldwide will contain embedded connectivity. At first the number may seem high, but when you consider the amount of vehicle manufacturers and mobile

  • Bye Bye Batteries: Unleashing the Real Power of the IoT

    There’s something holding back the Internet of Things (IoT) and it’s not imagination, technology or consumer interest. It’s power. I predict there would be billions of sensors at the heart of the billions of intelligent connected devices in use today if these devices didn’t have to rely on some form of battery for power. That’s a problem. Batteries are costly, toxic

  • Configurable Platforms for Embedded Systems to Improve User Experience

    In order for designers to offer the best user experience and cost structure for embedded systems, customization and programmability is key to designing application-specific platforms based on regional and products requirements.
