Security and the Cortex-M MPU, part 5: Step-by-step MPU security
Security and the Cortex-M MPU, part 5: Step-by-step MPU security

This blog presents a step-by-step procedure to provide memory protection unit (MPU) security to late- and post-project systems. It, of course, can also be applied to new projects. The goal is to achieve the reliability, security, and safety that modern embedded systems require, as they become connected to the Internet of Things.

2017 embedded processor report: At the edge of Moore’s Law and IoT
2017 embedded processor report: At the edge of Moore’s Law and IoT

With the benefits of Moore’s Law waning and the Internet of Things targeting an untold number of lower end devices, embedded processor vendors are now tailoring solutions to the specific needs of end customers and applications more than ever before.

System in package designs provide big integration for SWaP-sensitive systems
System in package designs provide big integration for SWaP-sensitive systems

System in packages (SiPs) promise to take integration to the next level –past the limits of lithography, in a sense – packing more performance and more battery life in a smaller form factors for wearables and a range of other size, weight, and power-sensitive (SWaP-sensitive) systems.

RISC-V explained

If you’re in the know, you’re aware of the RISC V initiative. If not, let me fill you in. It’s an instruction set that you can develop a core around. It’s sort of like the ARM instruction set, but there’s a big difference — it’s open source. Here, Ted Marena of Microsemi explains.

The Embedded Experts Podcast: Where have all the OS vendors gone?
The Embedded Experts Podcast: Where have all the OS vendors gone?

There’s been some acquisition and there’s been some realignment. Security is in vogue and “real time” is, well, not necessarily real time. And then there’s open source.

Patching up Linux for real-time applications: Origins and impacts on IoT

Now an independent consultant, Jim Ready reflects on how early work in embedded Linux that prompted modern mobile operating systems like Android also branched into more deeply embedded applications through the advent of capabilities such as the Realtime Preemption (RT-Preempt) patch, and how that evolution could ultimately impact the software hierarchy in the Internet of Things.
