Security and the Cortex-M MPU, part 4: SWI API for MPU systems

Ralph Moore, Micro Digital

The Cortex-M v7 memory protection unit (MPU) is difficult to use, but it is the main means of hardware memory protection available for Cortex-M3, -M4, and -M7 processors[1]. These processors are in widespread use in small- to medium-size embedded systems. Hence, it is important to learn to use the Cortex-M v7 MPU effectively in order to achieve the reliability, security, and safety that modern embedded systems require.

Distributed Trust Ecosystem key to autonomous driving future

Brian Spector, MIRACL

It’s no secret that advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and the fast-approaching autonomous driving future are set to transform the mobility market. A countless number of devices will need talk to each other in order to ensure a safe environment: multiple sensors and systems within the car will communicate securely at lightning speed while the vehicle itself will be tuned into its surroundings via vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) ad hoc networks, and more. Road conditions, precise position, speed, traffic signals and the location of other vehicles are just some of the data that go into this mix.

Hardware emulation for multi-level debugging methodology

Lauro Rizzatti, Verification Consultant

Chip design debug is a difficult discipline, and system-on-chip (SoC) design has made it more so. It’s like the proverbial needle in the haystack. For SoC designs it’s two haystacks, one for software, the other hardware. Software development groups often point a collective finger at the hardware group claiming it’s a hardware bug, while the hardware group snaps back, claiming it is a software bug. It’s hard to know who’s right without effective verification tools to pinpoint the problem. That’s where hardware emulation comes in.

A source-annotation-based framework for structural coverage analysis tool testing

Olivier Hainque, AdaCore

Automated testing of software tools always requires some way of comparing what the tool does against what we expect it to do. Testing compilers, for example, usually entails verifying the behavior of compiled programs, checking compilation error messages, or analyzing the generated machine code. For static or dynamic analysis tools, this typically involves checking the tool outputs for well-defined sets of inputs.
