VDKs Give Software Designers A Head Start

Every engineer knows the importance of having the right tools for the job. ARM big.LITTLE processing gives designers those tools. By taking advantage of a high-performance processor for compute-intensive tasks and a highly energy-efficient processor for less demanding jobs, design teams can extend battery life by up to 70% for applications with highly variable workloads, such as smart phones. However, …

9 Things Engineers Need to Know About Embedded Development

All engineers think they know the truth about embedded product development. It’s hard. It’s time-consuming. It’s expensive. But that’s only part of it. Unfortunately, the hard truth about embedded development needs to absorbed, not intellectually, but viscerally, through late-night work sessions, missed deadlines, and lost sleep. And the hard truth is this: Embedded development is big and slippery, easy to …
