A new in-house app note gives users interested in mission-critical embedded system development the low-down on how the latest version of QNX addresses safety and security issues. This is free to download from our QNX page.
Windows 10 IoT Core is now available for i.MX6, and has been ported to TRITON-TX6 modules. So we’re ready to go.
What hasn’t quite happened yet is Microsoft’s official commercial release. The official word is: “The code is currently intended for non-commercial development only at this time. A commercial quality release is expected later in 2019.”.
Watch this […]
Windows 10 IoT Core is a real thing
When Microsoft announced Windows 10 IoT as the Windows 10 embodiment of its line of embedded-customisable versions, there were three versions – Core, Mobile and Enterprise. Forgetting about Mobile, which is not available to embedded projecst, the Enterprise version was to be rolled out for x86 hardware, and Core was lacking […]
We often get asked about Qt licensing, so here is my personal take/explanation on the whole commercial vs open-source issue. Just my opinion – does not constitute legal advice or company policy…
Can I use the open-source Qt license in a commercial project?
Many of our customers […]
Does it matter what type of Flash is used for a SoM eMMC?
It’s very common for a large (4 or 8GB) eMMC Flash device to be offered as an alternative to a small NAND device, or an SD card, for storage of the (compressed) boot image, or other non-volatile storage requirements.
But although these devices feature wear […]
Freescale / NXP High Assurance Boot secures modules
Hacking of production embedded systems in the field should be an immediate concern to all projects. Happily, for i.MX6 family processors (and some earlier i.MX family devices too), Freescale / NXP provides a system call High Assurance Boot […]
If you would like to see William White and I making fools of ourselves, take a look at our first ever video, featuring unboxing of the very photogenic A31-uQ7 quad-core module devkit.
Unfortunately the camera doesn’t love the presenters quite so much. But rather than try to polish the whole thing with edits – […]
Our recently-announced quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 module, the A31-uQ7 is based on a standard Qseven pinout – something we’ve not felt necessary over the last 15 years of pioneering the system-on-module market. So has something changed?
While standard pinouts find good use in the x86 world, there have been 3 reasons why they are less prevalent on […]
Windows 10 is coming this summer, on July 29th we’re told. Although Windows CE (currently aka Windows Embedded Compact 2013) will continue to be supported, should we expect embedded projects based on CE – or for that matter on Linux – to rush to the new OS?
The 3 flavours
i.MX6 module with mainline Linux and Yocto support
The Linux kernel supporting the TRITON-TX pin-compatible range of system-on-modules is substantially mainline – i.e. being maintained to keep as close as possible to the current Linux kernel version.
This has obvious advantages. But […]
