Which Virtualization Strategy is Right for You?

By Chip Downing Advances in microprocessor technology now enable embedded and IoT designers to create very powerful solutions by integrating both information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) into shared, consolidated compute platforms. Today’s embedded microprocessors have hardware-assisted virtualization intellectual property that supports full operating system environments in virtual machines (VMs) on a shared compute environment. Although this capability has…

Improving Embedded Security: Proper Runtime Selection

By Bill Graham Selection of secure components for an embedded system is key to a secure system. Leveraging a secure RTOS, middleware, virtualization and tools significantly reduces the effort and development costs. Moreover, there are additional benefits from using commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software components over Roll Your Own (RYO) code or self-ported and maintained open source code. Some of the COTS…
