Testing Against Cyber-Attacks with Simulation Technology

Testing Against Cyber-Attacks with Simulation Technology

By Michel Genard Cyber-security is often a story of the “weak link.” The following two recent cyber-security events involving USBs brings to light the importance of testing the system against cyber-attacks to eliminate this type of risk. The US Secret Service identified that a supposed foreign agent was using a USB key to upload malware into the IT infrastructure of…
Wind River Reflections from NXP Technology Day

Wind River Reflections from NXP Technology Day

By Tony Crupi Last week I traveled to the NXP Technology Day in Minneapolis, MN.  There were many interesting and timely topics on the agenda, so not surprisingly it was a full house! It was great to catch up with my colleagues at NXP, our joint customers, and other Wind River partners. Over the last three decades, Wind River and…

By guest author Jakob Engblom The analyst firm Gartner has published a list of their “Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends” for 2018. The list contains a wide range of trends, from specific technologies like Blockchain to broad domains like Conversational Platforms. In this blog post, I will look at how simulation plays an important role in a couple of the…
Getting to Small Batches in Hardware Design using Simulation

Getting to Small Batches in Hardware Design using Simulation

By guest author Jakob Engblom In the previous part of this two-part blog, I discussed the general principle of doing work in small batches, the great benefits that it brings, and how the principle can be applied outside the traditional software development domain. In this part, I will discuss some more concrete examples about how we apply simulation to enable small batches,…
Continuous Delivery, Embedded Systems, and Simulation

Continuous Delivery, Embedded Systems, and Simulation

By guest author Jakob Engblom Continuous Delivery (CD) and Continuous Integration (CI) are two related and important concepts in modern software engineering and software product development.  Doing integration is a prerequisite to doing delivery and deployment, and getting a CI flow in place is often the hardest part of getting to CD. Doing CI for general-purpose software on a general-purpose…
