A real time operating system (RTOS) is used in applications where time sensitive operations are required. Typically, these applications involve the collection and analysis of sensor data, or the control of critical equipment. This contrasts with the use of general purpose operating systems. A general purpose operating system (GPOS), such as Android, Linux, or Windows, […]
For companies designing next generation electronic devices for the medical, industrial, or military industries, there are several modern development processes that can accelerate time to market. The first process involves using a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) single board computer (SBC) as the main processor board for the new product design. Instead of starting from scratch designing all […]
In seven weeks, InHand created a new computer board based on Freescale’s new single chip module (SCM) SCM-i.MX 6D; both were announced and demonstrated during the opening keynote of the 2015 Freescale Technology Forum. Posted Date: 23 June 2015 :: Freescale President and CEO, Gregg Lowe, kicks off FTF 2015 with discussion and demonstration […]
Freescale i.MX 6Solo X: The Perfect Processor for Secure, Low-Power Mobile devices The i.MX 6SoloX has a heterogeneous architecture, which means that the processor includes different core types. The 6SoloX includes two ARM processor cores: a Cortex-M4 microcontroller-class core and a Cortex-A9 microprocessor-class core. The benefit of heterogeneous cores is that – when correctly configured […]
The Freescale i.MX 6 ARM processor is dominating the market in next generation special-purpose embedded devices for the medical, military, and industrial markets. Examples of such embedded devices include a medical blood analysis device, a military handheld for situational awareness, and a diagnostic instrument to monitor vibration for machine health management. Today I’m going to […]
Welcome to another episode of proving the durability of our Freescale i.MX 6 SBC based Hydra-F6 rugged tablet. This episode is Halloween themed; playing tricks on the tablet that kids (in movies) might do to houses or cars or people as Hallows Eve prank. Here we showcase the durability of the tablet (eggs are harder […]
