Credit card sized SBC

Vehicle PC, Embedded pc, single board computer

 

The initial goal in creating the Raspberry Pi credit card sized, Linux-based Single Board Computer (SBC) – targeted primarily at education – was to develop a response to the decline of students engaging with computer science and related engineering disciplines. Our desire was to reverse the trend of children becoming consumers rather than creators. The following case study follows the hardware development process from an early failure, initial prototypes, and through to the finished production design.
Over recent years there has been an increasing trend for children to be consumers of digital content rather than be future creators or engineers. This trend is driven by manufacturers looking to provide a seamless experience for target customers on a variety of electronic platforms, from gaming consoles to tablets and laptop computers.

Technologies enable true IVI experiences

Technologies enable true IVI experiences

Although major automotive manufacturers have already begun introducing various IVI technologies, enabling true in-vehicle wireless entertainment requires standards-based technologies built on a single System-on-Chip. The next wave of IVI applications will rely heavily on three wireless technologies – Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Near Field Communication– built on one combination radio chip. And as the market continues to evolve, OEMs will need in-vehicle to leverage traditional Wi-Fi rolling hot spots to offer vehicle-to-vehicle communications such as traffic management, incident avoidance, and social networking.

Cloud security meets embedded systems

Fanless embedded system, in vehicle pc, Industrial PC

Cloud computing has demonstrated embedded computer cost savings and operational efficiency benefits for the private sector and now Department of Defense (DoD) IT managers are exploring the concept for enterprise and tactical applications. However, DoD planners are moving much more cautiously to assure they have plugged all the potential embedded computer inherent in something as nebulous as a virtual cloud.

IT managers are under increasing pressure to boost network capacity and performance

IT managers are under increasing pressure to boost network capacity and performance to cope with the data deluge. Networking systems are under a similar form of stress with their performance degrading as new capabilities are added in software. The solution to both needs is next-generation System-on-Chip (SoC) communications processors that combine multiple cores with multiple hardware acceleration engines.

In-Vehicle Computer. single board computer, Industrial PC

The data deluge, with its massive growth in both mobile and enterprise network traffic, is driving substantial changes in the architectures of base stations, routers, gateways, and other networking systems. To maintain high performance as traffic volume and velocity continue to grow, next-generation communications processors combine multicore processors with specialized hardware acceleration engines in SoC ICs.

The following discussion examines the role of the SoC in today’s network infrastructures, as well as how the SoC will evolve in coming years. Before doing so, it is instructive to consider some of the trends driving this need.

 

1.Networks under increasing stress

2. Moore’s Law not keeping pace

3. Hardware acceleration necessary, but …

4.Next-generation multicore SoCs

Real-time and general-purpose

 

embedded system, in vehicle pc, Industrial PC

Virtualization for embedded systems has many implementations in which two or more operating systems coexist to gain the benefits of each. One approach puts Microsoft Windows and a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) together.

 

Much is being said about virtualization these days in the softwareworld. Simply stated, virtualization is about getting multiple OSs to run on the same computing platform at the same time. Virtualization has been cited as a key technology for getting the most performance out of the newest multicore processors. But just as not all computing applications are the same, not all virtualization approaches are appropriate for all applications.

Embedded systems have a key requirement that doesn’t normally apply to office and server computers: the need for deterministic response to real-time events. To support the requirement for determinism, embedded applications typically use RTOSs. Embedded applications also employ general-purpose OSs to handle operator interfaces, databases, and general-purpose computing tasks.

In the past, because OSs couldn’t successfully co-reside on computing platforms, system developers employed multiple processing platforms using one or more to support real-time functions and others to handle general-purpose processing. System designers that can combine both types of processing on the same platform can save costs by eliminating redundant computing hardware. The advent of multicore processors supports this premise because it is possible to dedicate processor cores to different computing environments; however, the software issues posed by consolidating such environments require special consideration. Combining real-time and general-purpose operating environments on the same platform (Figure 1) places some stringent requirements on how virtualization is implemented.

embedded system, in vehicle computer, Industrial PC

Embedded world, the biggest and most important event of its kind, opens the series of high-tech exhibitions , now for the eleventh time in 2013. Exhibitors from all over the world present the entire spectrum of embedded systems: hardware, software, tools and services.

“The embedded world Exhibition&Conference is growing continuously and rapidly in the same way that the embedded sector is gaining in importance – the embedded community can look forward to a record event,” says Alexander Mattausch, Exhibition Manager of embedded world. The specialists can also look forward once again to figures such as Prof. Nicholas McGuire or Dr. David Kalinsky, who have given the embedded world Conference a face, weight, spirit and know-how at a high professional standard for years.
