A Review of Watchdog Architectures
Watchdogs are an important part of an embedded system. A number of years ago I performed a brief survey of the state of watchdogs with small satellites in mind. One of the primary factors of watchdog design for small satellites was that the system had to be highly reliable. Few space systems can be serviced while in flight with perhaps the exception of the Hubble Space Telescope.
Developing Reusable Device Drivers for MCU’s
ReinThe rate at which society expects products to be released and refreshed has been steadily decreasing over the last two decades. The result has left development teams scrambling to implement the most basic product features before the product launch date. Designing a new product from scratch takes time, effort and money that is often unavailable.
Bootloader Design for Microcontrollers in Embedded Systems
Microcontrollers have proliferated into every nook and cranny of our daily lives from simple 8-bit devices that control our toaster ovens to powerful 32-bit DSP’s that provide us with the rich media and entertainment that we have all become accustomed to. Without microcontrollers, our lives would not only be less exciting but we would lose a level of control over our world that we can no longer live without. Billions of microcontrollers are sold each year with the number continually climbing.
The Global ET software development process has improved as a result of your guidance in the area of source control and code analysis tools, your software design practices, and your approach to modular and highly structured software implementation. These have had an overall positive impact for Global ET as we continue to provide our customers with intelligent power control solutions. SEE MORE >>
Jacob’s experience with both the hardware and software side of embedded systems brought immediate value to the project. He was a key resource responsible for integration of top-of-line sensors and user input devices for the proof-of-concept system. I find Jacob to technically astute and able to not only accept, but excel with cutting-edge research and development projects. SEE MORE >>
