News has spread worldwide following the launch of Percepio’s Tracealyzer SDK.
A recent Embedded Survey by Aspencore (May 2023) shows that “Good software tools” is one of the most important aspects of an embedded developer’s work environment. ThreadX and PX5 founder Bill Lamie agrees.
Multithreading has many advantages over single-threaded systems, but it can increase software complexity and make it more difficult to verify.
Traditional verification methods like code review, static analysis and functional testing are necessary but not sufficient
to fully verify multi-threaded embedded software.
Multithreaded architecture offers many advantages for developers, but it may also make the software more complicated and make system verification difficult.
Licensing models, source code modification constraints, and industry certification are the top business considerations when choosing an RTOS. And these three influence each other.
Tracealyzer® version 4.7 in now available for download and evaluation. This is a big feature update with several new capabilities and major improvements. Observability for any C/C++ software: Percepio’s TraceRecorder library can now be used with any C/C++ software...
Developing with an RTOS can make it easier to design complex applications, but while an RTOS reduces the complexity of the application source code, it does not reduce the inherent complexity of the application itself.
Sometimes you need to step away from the daily grind and set aside time to study the patterns and structures that make up an embedded application. To meet that need, Percepio now offers two online courses in embedded development with a real-time operating system.
Percepio has announced the availability of Percepio RTOS Training, a set of online courses in embedded and IoT software development.
A clear indication that you may have a deadlock problem is when multiple tasks suddenly stop executing, although no higher priority tasks are running.
When you have a task in your system that is supposed to execute at regular intervals, say for instance that it needs to read a sensor value every 5 milliseconds, then you have a system that is sensitive to random delays – also known as .jitter.
