How to Build Edge Devices with a Strong Industrial IoT Data Management Framework


Dienstag, 18. September 2018

ColibriIoTThe Internet of Things, IoT, is inviting devices to change our lives. When it comes to the industrial aspect of IoT, devices assist in managing processes during which alarm management adds value to predict faults and catastrophes. Things are getting embedded with and controlled by smart devices that come together to automate tasks, so we can maximize our time.

At the same time, developers and manufacturers of embedded systems and devices need to prepare and keep up with this new trend and build systems that answer the demands of markets and introduce new innovations, which at its core relies on one common thing: data management.

Introduction of Qt for Automation


Montag, 26. März 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. 

Starting with OpenCV on i.MX 6 processors


Mittwoch, 22. November 2017

ColibriApalisComputer vision (CV) has been a field of study that is expanding its boundaries every day. This blog post is an introduction to the use of computer vision in embedded systems, by employing the OpenCV 2.4 and 3.1 versions in Computer on Modules (CoMs) equipped with NXP's i.MX 6 processors. The CoMs chosen were the Colibri and Apalis families from Toradex.

Erstellen von graphischen Interfaces für Embedded LInux mit Electron


Freitag, 13. Oktober 2017

Colibri
Einführung

Derzeit werden graphische Benutzeroberflächen (sogennante GUIs) bei einer grossen Anzahl von Embedded Projekten verwendet. GUIs ermöglichen dem Benutzer die Interaktion mit digitalen Geräten mittels graphischen Elementen wie Icons oder anderen Symbolen auf dem Bildschirm. Gute GUIs sind eine wichtige Komponente von Embedded-Geräten, da sie die Bedienung von Anwendungen stark vereinfachen und dem Benutzer so den schnellen Umgang ermöglichen.

Qt, GTK oder Electron sind nur einige von vielen Tools auf dem Markt, welche das Erstellen von GUIs ermöglichen. Electron ist zudem ein Framework für die Entwicklung von native Applications und verwendet aktuelle Technologien wie JavaScript, HTML und CSS.

In diesem Blogbeitrag installieren wir das Framework Electron auf einem Toradex Colibri iMX6, führen einige Beispielprogramme aus und evaluieren die Software. Zum Abschluss entwickeln wir eine grundlegende GUI mittels Node.js, JavaScript, HTML und CSS.

Cloud-Aided Yocto Build Speedup


Montag, 21. August 2017

Cloud services have been a reality for some years already. Right now, one of the biggest concepts in the field is the Internet of Things, or IoT for short. When we electronics folk think of the cloud, the first thing that comes to our minds is connecting several devices to it and uploading data to be visualized, stored and analyzed - among other possibilities. Of course, other uses may come to mind, too.

One thing we don't always realize is that the cloud can be much more than simply an IoT tool, or something only large corporations have access to. We can make use of the cloud for everyday tasks, too. As a matter of fact, that's the motivation behind this article - taking a time-consuming task and using the cloud to simplify our lives a little!

What you should know about Flash storage


Mittwoch, 1. März 2017

Flash StorageThe flash storage is often a topic on our support channels. Toradex invests a lot of resources into making the storage as reliable as possible. Nevertheless, it is important to understand some basics of the underlying storage device. One of the most important things you have to know: the storage wears out, you can destroy your storage device by writing a lot to the built-in storage device. With this post, we want to give you a basic overview of potential issues flash storage can have.

Developing Real-Time Systems on Application Processors


Mittwoch, 8. Februar 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.
