By performing operations at the edge rather than the server, overall system performance can be greatly enhanced. The two main topics at the IoT conferences I have attended recently are security and big data. Security is presented as one of the main barriers for adoption of IoT in a big way, and cases like the [...]
Since the early days of computers, programmers have endeavored to develop more efficient software through simplicity and reusability of code. Programming languages and design methodologies were developed to manage the growing complexity of software systems. In many cases, this made development more efficient but came at the expense of system efficiency, with increased demand for [...]
Marvell had a problem. Its Kinoma Create development platform had two tiny microcontrollers acting as programmable I/O controllers. Each MCU could be programmed through the GUI running on their main processor to handle multiple interfaces. However, when the user wanted two or more interfaces, data got lost. The tiny MCUs couldn't handle more than one I/O port without losing data. An OS called SynthOS fixed their problem.
