Submit your trace – get a $25 gift card

A research group at Mälardalen University here in Västerås, Sweden, is investigating how RTOS trace tools like Percepio Tracealyzer can be extended for testing purposes and automatically detect bugs related to concurrency and timing. To validate their research, they need real-world bug examples. We at Percepio want to help them obtain RTOS traces, recorded with Tracealyzer, [...]

On the Horizon: two embedded conferences

  Embedded Conference Scandinavia, ECS, takes place on 7–8 November, 2017 at Kistamässan in Stockholm, Sweden. Last year’s conference attracted just under 2,000 delegates so ECS now claims to be the largest embedded conference in Europe. The conference program is still in flux but the organizers have announced the first keynote speaker: Maarten Struys, Account [...]

The RTOS trend and the challenges of using an RTOS

Using an RTOS, or perhaps considering an RTOS for your next project? In that case, we recommend reading our article RTOS Trends and Challenges by Percepio founder Dr. Johan Kraft, featured on Embedded.com. The article discusses the strong RTOS trend in the embedded industry, including the motivations and fundamental challenges of using an RTOS, pitfalls that even caused NASA's JPL some serious problems during the [...]

White Paper: Real time demands on the IoT

Delivering ultra-low power operation in IoT nodes means they will spend most of their time in a dormant mode, waiting to exchange data with a gateway. Could employing an RTOS help deliver a more reliable user experience? Read our latest white paper where Dr. Johan Kraft, Founder and CEO of Percepio, examines some of the [...]

White Paper: How to visualize response times in FreeRTOS

Being able to measure the timing of RTOS tasks and interrupts is key to understanding the performance of a real-time system. Measuring response time is easy, but then what? Understanding the contributing factors behind performance anomalies requires good visualization that can explain the data. Read our white paper about how Tracealyzer can help you [...]
