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.

Unsuspecting Benefit of Virtualization

By Chris Ault I came across an article the other day that was discussing forthcoming innovations in the automation industry. The article discusses how Ethernet is becoming ubiquitous for manufacturing, closing the numerous and incompatible communications protocols and media enabling communication among the various control and controlled systems. The article then goes on to draw industrial automation into the cloud for things such as inventory…

Embedded Virtualization Opens New Possibilities

By Mark Hermeling One of the things that stands out in many customer visits that I do is that embedded virtualization often enables possibilities that the customer never thought possible.
