As we finish our first quarter of the year, we are happy to share insights on all the new products, hardware, and software updates since our last newsletter in January with even more on the horizon. In this newsletter, we share details about enabling RTC on your Inforce platform and how to roll your own Linux build system with Open Embedded. Lastly, we bring you all the way to Germany where we share our experience partnering with Qualcomm, Basler, and Arrow at Embedded World 2017.
Warm wishes from the Inforce Team! Continue reading Inforce Insights March 2017: Vol.3 Issue 2 – Inforce Computing Newsletter
From robots cooking sausages to an augmented reality BMW® i8™ test drive, Embedded World showed the latest and greatest the embedded world had to offer. Internet of Things was no doubt at the center of the show and we were thrilled to see so many eager developers with such unique applications for Snapdragon™ technology ranging from surgical devices to industrial automation and smart city management.

Introduction: Product makers would find it hard to pick up off-the-shelf Linux distributions for use in their systems directly owing to the combination of bootloader, kernel, application, and development tool components not being compatible for their peripherals and hardware. Thus, a ‘roll your own’ approach to Linux is preferred and the Open Embedded (OE) build environment provides exactly that through a methodology to reliably build customized Linux distributions for your embedded devices. Open Embedded is not a Linux distro but a build system with which a Linux distro can be created.

Introduction: The purpose of an RTC or a real-time clock is to provide precise time and date which can be used for various application use-cases. Similar to a watch, it runs on a battery and keeps time for you even when there is a power outage on your system! Using it, you can keep track of long timelines, even if your system is disconnected from the power plug. Continue reading Enabling RTC on Inforce Platforms
Embedded systems have become an important part of every modern electronic component such as – microwave oven, washing machine, remote control, RFID tags, routers, modems, PDAs, mobile phones etc. Continue reading An Introduction to Embedded Systems and IoT
An embedded system is a special purpose computer designed to perform dedicated tasks, rather than multiple tasks. There is an increase in popularity of embedded systems as they take care of everything such as – display, computing, communication etc. Continue reading Choosing an Operating system for Embedded systems
