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


2018年9月18日火曜日

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.

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.

Creating graphical interfaces for embedded Linux with Electron


2017年10月13日金曜日

ColibriCurrently, graphical user interfaces (GUIs) are used in a large number of embedded projects. GUIs allow users to interact with digital devices through graphical elements like icons and other indicators present on the screen. Good GUIs are important for embedded devices, as they improve ease of use and help users to understand a device’s operation more readily.

In the current market, there are many tools to create GUIs, such as Electron, a framework for creating native applications with web technologies like JavaScript, HTML and CSS. In this blog post, we will install Electron on a Toradex Colibri iMX6 module, run some basic sample programs to evaluate the software and lastly, develop a basic GUI using Node.js, JavaScript, HTML and CSS.

Cloud-Aided Yocto Build Speedup


2017年8月21日月曜日

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


2017年3月1日水曜日

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


2017年2月8日水曜日

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.

Toradex WinCE Libraries' Evolution: The New Library Approach Explained


2016年11月8日火曜日

WindowsOver 10 years ago, we wrote some small pieces of WinCE code in order to demonstrate different features of our computer on modules (CoM), or system on modules (SoM); for example: GPIOs, I2C, Analog Inputs (ADC), etc. With the pure demo purpose in our minds we didn’t pay attention to things like maintenance, compatibility across different modules, etc. However, these demos were used by a huge Windows Embedded Compact customer base. We received more and more support and feature requests which we then started to integrate into the demo code. As a result, we got the library package for our PXA and Tegra® based SoMs as it exists today.

How to do a low-cost carrier board design - Part 2


2016年10月13日木曜日

Carrier BoardThe development of a carrier board can be divided into 3 main tasks, system design, schematic capture, and layout. In my previous blog post, I have already talked about the system design and the schematic capturing. Here, I would like to give you some insights to the third phase of the design, the layout. I personally enjoy this phase since it requires a lot of imagination and experience. Also in this part, I would like to focus on designing a low-cost carrier board for a Toradex computer module.
