The Arm Cortex-A35 in Comparison


Thursday, November 8, 2018

Arm Cortex-A35Toradex is launching early access for the Colibri iMX8X System on Module. It features the new NXP® i.MX 8X SoCs, making it the only SoC from the NXP i.MX 8 line to be equipped with Arm® Cortex-A35 cores. In this article, we'd like to give you a little insight into this new processor and how it compares to others.

Amazon FreeRTOS, heterogeneous cores and the all-new Apalis and Colibri iMX8


Monday, May 28, 2018

Amazon FreeRTOSFreeRTOS is a real-time operating system kernel for embedded devices. In development since 2003, it is the market-leading real-time operating system, having been ported to more than 40 microcontroller architectures. On November 29, 2017, Amazon acquired FreeRTOS and announced Amazon FreeRTOS (or a:FreeRTOS), a real-time operating system kernel based on FreeRTOS and focused on low-power, connected devices

Introduction of Qt for Automation


Monday, March 26, 2018

QtToday, Industry 4.0 and the IIoT have introduced a whole new set of challenges: There will be more connected devices, which will generate more data, that in turn will lead to even more complex software applications. The playing field will change at an exponentially accelerating pace, including the state of device infrastructure, application complexity, and development. Read on for more insight in this Guest blog post from our partner, The Qt Company.

This is a series of articles aiming to demystify the development of embedded systems using Heterogeneous Multicore Processing architecture powered SoCs. Through a practical approach and presentation of several demos, this will provide to you a quick start to your development.

Developing Real-Time Systems on Application Processors


Wednesday, February 8, 2017

LinuxTraditionally, microcontrollers are used for systems with deterministic real-time response. With the increasing need for higher performance, exciting UI and high-speed connectivity in end-products, many system designers are inclined to use application processors or SoCs with a feature-rich OS, a combination that may compromise real-time response. In this blog post, we present three approaches to add real-time behaviour in SoC-based designs.
