Hi, We currently do most (all) our embedeed FW testing on either real HW (if available), using FPGA, or using HW simulator and Verilog models. We are looking at performing more testing on the "Host" rather than the target, and since this is new to our group, I am looking for suggestions and comments. BTW, we use C, currently we don't use an RTOS, but going forward, this is something that we wil...

Hi, I've been invited to a meeting to discuss am automotive like engineering project with a high level of safety critical requirements. They are using Simulink for some of the top level design work, but are programming the whole lot in C#, with some of the code already written. Not sure at this stage which rtos is being used, if at all. From what I've read, C# is a web / application /...

I've just started a project with a new client and they have decided to use C/peg UI template (from swell software). As is common with small companies they haven't got around to entering into a support contract for this so we are left with the slightly incomplete documentation. A search on the web brings up nothing other than the author's site and some from the RTOS developers who have in...

Hi Folks I am looking at developing a new application, that I hope I can do using an 8051 derivative. Two main requirements that I have are that it be pretty damn fast (50-100MHz) and have I2C. Also around 6-ish external interrupts and port for RS232... Have been looking also at using a RTOS....but this is not fixed in stone. I am quite familiar with the 8051 and the keil uvision IDE ...

Hello, I wonder if we have automotive engineers here? What microcontrollers and what RTOS do you use for CAN connected systems? I know that some manufacturers have a list of approved micros. So far my investigation ended on Freescale/ST SPC56 family and Renesas RH850, both running AUTOSAR from VECTOR. Are there any other widely used micros? BR Tomas D.

I am bringing up my first ARM project (based on LM3S1439) and am looking for some advice. In my particular target application the processor will be communicating with several peripherals via SPI (2) and UART, maintaining a file system, keeping track of time and date as well as performing a lot of GPIO manipulation. The board is also designed with a few external communications ports so that future ...

I can do basic implementation and interfaces with them as I worked with 8051 long time. Now I want to do something with real time OS. I want to load Windows CE on ARM. I have never did this kind of work. So, can anybody tell me from where to start and from where I can get...

Hi ALL I am using threadx. Is there any way i can wait on a thread. I need to know when a thread has completed its execution. This is possible in windows by using: WaitForSingleObject((HANDLE)event, timeout); Is there anything equivalent to that in threadx or any other rtos's. Threadx only has the following APIs defined for threads. Can we use these to do the same. UINT tx_threa...

I'm right at the end of my tether in trying to move some real time stuff (MIDI) to Linux. The ARM-9 platform I've chosen, while very nice in other ways, uses a proprietary FPGA interface for all the port inputs, that makes it next to impossible to strip out the OS and replace it with something else, or to go right back to CPU-side code cutting (which is what I've always done in the past)...

We are looking at using the TMS470 chip on a new design. The problem seems to be that the tools are just too expensive. At the moment the product's TAM makes it hard to justify this portion of the NRE's. The Keil toolset and RTOS will run over $10K last time we checked. Other solutions can get up as high as $60K!!! This isn't about getting something for free. I have no problem paying ...
