Embedded Basics – Setting up Tracealyzer to Debug FreeRTOS Applications

Peering into a microcontroller and seeing how the embedded software is executing has always been important to embedded software developers. In the good old days, developers used to have to instrument their hardware with extra outputs and use all kinds of tricks in order to take a stab at understanding what was happening with their … Continue reading Embedded Basics – Setting up Tracealyzer to Debug FreeRTOS Applications

Tips and Tricks – 7 Cardinal Sins of Embedded Software Development

Every industry has their best practices and their sinful practices.  The cardinal sins are the practices that many are aware of but that are just too tempting or too easy to fall into. The embedded software industry has a number of these cardinal sins but there are seven in particular that seem to have pervaded … Continue reading Tips and Tricks – 7 Cardinal Sins of Embedded Software Development

CEC – From Baremetal to RTOS

Course Overview: Embedded systems have been developed without using a real-time operating system for decades. These systems have used bare-metal scheduling techniques that have proven sufficient in many systems. As devices become more connected, complicated and feature rich, bare-metal techniques are no longer the optimal solution for developing a real-time embedded system. In this course, … Continue reading CEC – From Baremetal to RTOS
