Electronics components and the age of e-commerce: Does price really matter?

Duncan Bennet, Bostin Technology

One thing is true about getting older: You are able to speak about the past with some experience. I was reminded of this recently when having a conversation about the role of electronic component distribution. Many years ago I worked for a supplier who had the concept of supplying semiconductors without going through distribution. [...]

Embedded Insiders Podcast: Revisiting RTOS independence with one of the last men standing

Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director and Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

Earlier this year the Embedded Insiders posed the question, “Where have all the RTOS vendors gone?” During that discussion the Insiders offered that silicon companies have gobbled up independent real-time operating system vendors in an effort to provide their customers with fully integrated, “total” solutions. The (at least perceived) downside of this for developers is, of course, that support for hardware targets diminishes as an RTOS becomes more entrenched within a single silicon vendor’s…

Functional safety, AI collide in automotive behind heterogeneous MIPS core

Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

When I think of functional safety in the context of processing, I usually think of a small microcontroller (MCU) responsible for one or two dedicated tasks. Its architecture is probably simple yet resilient in order to reduce the possibility of hardware faults and soft errors. This has been the case for safety-critical industrial and automotive applications for some time.

Play in the IoT sandbox

Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director

Lots of images come to mind when someone tells you to “go play in the sandbox.” Designing an IoT device is generally not on that list — until now. As shown in this demonstration, the Renesas IoT Sandbox lets developers easily create IoT applications using cloud services and real-time workflows – and you’re not locked into a particular cloud provider, as lots of options are available.
