Freescale Designing a Working Prototype using MQX™ RTOS and Tower System for Kinetis

Designing a Microcontroller-based system can consume a significant amount of time and resources. Hardware and software must be quickly and carefully developed to avoid problems that can delay time to market. Fortunately, Freescale provides software and hardware tools that accelerate development time and allow for fast prototyping. The ability to quickly prototype a system can lower the overall project risk and increase the likelihood of a successful product. More [pdf]


Xilinx - Delivering a Generation Ahead at 28nm

Xilinx SoCs represent the first hardware, software, and I/O programmable SoCs in the world. Through the integration of CPU, DSP, logic, and mainstream Analog Mixed Signal (AMS), Xilinx provides an extra generation of system performance, integration, and lower power. Xilinx is delivering a generation ahead in 3 areas:

Portfolio: All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs, and 3D ICs available today. Product: An extra node of performance, power and integration Productivity: Unmatched time to integration and implementation. Learn More

Two Cores, Ten Experts
In a unique experiment, ten industry experts shake out and design applications using the new NXP LPC4350 dual-core ARM® CortexTM-M4 and Cortex-M0 Processors. Here are two of them for your review:

Real-time acoustic FIR filter suite using the LPC4350
By Steve Sabram
This example project implements acoustic range, finite infinite response (FIR) filters using the LPC4350 demo board and the ARM CMSIS DSP library. And for mobile DSP solutions this combination could challenge dedicated DSP integrated circuit hardware on cost and performance. Read More


Testing performance of SPIFI interface and selected DSP library functions
By George Romaniuk
The SPI interface has the lowest pin count, but handling the data transfers between the SPI port and the application requires a lot of code and the latency may be a problem for some control applications. I was hoping to find a quad SPI interface and an intelligent SPI controller with FIFO and DMA but I couldn’t find such thing until I got NXP slides showing the LPC4350. Read More


Atmel - Next-Generation IDE: Maximizing IP Reuse Integrating ARM and AVR Design
The integrated development environment (IDE) has gradually changed the face of software development over the past couple of decades. Providing a single environment for writing code, debugging and deploying code to the target, the IDE has made development teams more productive than ever. For many embedded systems developers, however, there remains a gap that impacts the design cycle. Read More [pdf]
