National Instruments unveiled the NI miniSystems, which are miniaturized versions of real-world systems (such as roll-chassis dynamometers and electrical smart grids). The new lab platforms were developed in collaboration with educational suppliers to bring relevance to math and science theory as students begin to pursue engineering degrees.
Pebble Bay is offering a series of embedded systems workshops for engineers. The training will present the fundamentals of developing code for embedded systems. Seminar topics range from cross development to hardware interface development. There will be two two workshop sessions each day. The sessions are titled “An Introduction to Embedded Software Development Using C” and “An Introduction to Hardware Interfacing and Device Driver Development.” The sessions will be held at Birmingham and Bristol on September 28th and 30th respectively. The fee for attending is £65+VAT for one session. Both sessions cost £85+VAT.
Geensoft introduced Reqtify 2010 tool suite for the automated management of embedded hardware and software requirements capture, traceability and impact analysis throughout the entire development lifecycle. Reqtify 2010 offers improved productivity through an extensive range of new and enhanced plug-in tools, features and interfaces. Reqtify has been deployed or qualified for application development under certification constraints like DO178C, DO254, EN50128, IEC 61508, ISO26262, FDA 21CFR Part 11, MODAF, and DoDAF.
When simulating a complete subsystem (such as a wireless communication device or radar receiver), the quality of measurement data becomes essential to ensure that the finished product meets or exceeds the demands the system will encounter in service. The measurement data can be used to make changes to the system early in the design process, when those changes can be realized in the least amount of time and at the lowest cost. However, this can be accomplished only if there is a direct link between the system being simulated and the measurement equipment itself.
Maia EDA introduced the Maia functional verification tool. Maia uses a description of the expected behavior of a device to automatically create a complete self-checking reactive testbench, so freeing engineers from the time-consuming, complex, and error-prone task of manual testbench creation. The tool has been designed to enable both engineers and non-engineers to quickly verify modules and sub-systems, and is initially being offered without cost by the company, allowing trial without registration or risk.
Donate $100 to the The Alameda County Community Food Bank, and ClioSoft will give you a license to their SOS Hardware Configuration Management – Starter Edition in exchange. The special promotion ends March 31, 2010. SOS Starter Edition is a design management solution for small design teams. The tool streamlines the design process by enhancing communication and facilitating efficient and accurate sharing of design data from concept through tape-out.
