Is Free Bluetooth Really Free?

Let's get right to the point. If you pay nothing for software (like the Bluetooth® that's already embedded in chips or RTOSs) but it costs you 50 percent more in development costs and perhaps significant time in opportunity costs associated with delayed time-to-market, is free Bluetooth really free?

The Role of Short Range Wireless in IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the shape of the embedded systems industry. A key component of this change is the role that short range wireless - such as BLE, WiFi® and Bluetooth - will play in new IoT scenarios. The focus of this paper will be on the many aspects of short range wireless connectivity for IoT applications. It will give managers greater understanding of the practicalities behind new scenarios involving short range wireless.

For Engineers

Connectivity, Complexity and the Role of Enhanced Debugging

Over the last three to four years, the adoption of inter-device connectivity and a multitude of other ‘smart features’ (e.g. adaptive control and device learning) into many traditional embedded products has drastically increased the level of underlying software and hardware complexity. In parallel, product development timelines are rapidly reducing with a corresponding tightening of quality requirements, especially in regulated markets such as the defence, automotive and health sectors. elated data (MQTT, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi) between multiple nodes.

Embedded Debugging

A flexible, plug-in based debugger is described. The debug system, built as a C++ interface class, is independent of the physical layer, which can be a network, a serial connection (e.g., RS232), or even a file on hard disk or flash memory. The plug-in approach presented was conceived to overcome the major barriers to fast and efficient debugging of embedded systems and is based upon many years of experience in the embedded industry.

Real Time Location Systems

Real Time Location Systems are used to track and identify the location of objects or people in real time. This is done through the use of electronic tags/badges attached to the object or person and electronic readers to receive the signals from these tags. Signals are filtered and the information processed to determine location.

Working across Multiple Embedded Platforms

Traditionally the requirements placed upon embedded systems are quite different to those applied for desktop computing. While there is no single characterization that applies to the whole gamut of embedded systems some combination of the variables of robustness, small size and weight, real-time requirements, long life cycle and low price could be expected to figure in the design criteria for most embedded systems.
