Toradex at Microsoft Booth with Azure IoT Hub, Windows 10 IoT Core and Windows Embedded Compact

Posted by Charbax – May 19, 2017

At the Microsoft booth, Toradex demonstrated its multiplatform system connected to the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub – the Cloud Parking demo. Toradex System on Modules (SoMs) were employed in the access control, license plate recognition and the payment system, the communication between them made only through the internet, using only the Azure services. Linux, Windows 10 IoT Core, and Windows Embedded Compact are used as Operating Systems on the modules. Additionally, an interesting Toradex showcase included their new Heterogeneous Multicore Low Power demo featuring the Colibri iMX7D based on the NXP i.MX 7 Dual Core SoC.

Hololens at Microsoft Embedded World Booth Tour and Toradex, Azure Windows 10 IoT Core

Posted by Charbax – May 19, 2017

My first time trying on the Microsoft Hololens headmounted augmented reality system running on an Intel cherrytrail system selling at $3000 on the Microsoft store. In this video I walk around the Microsoft booth at Embedded World, checking out some of Microsoft's partners including Microtronics smart bicvcle running Silicon Labs ARM Cortex-M system through Windows Server. This video features Toradex at 4:13 into the video demonstrating its multiplatform system connected to the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub where Linux, Windows 10 IoT Core, and Windows Embedded Compact are used as Operating Systems on the modules featuring Heterogeneous Multicore Low Power Colibri iMX7D based on the NXP i.MX 7 Dual Core SoC.

Fotokite Pro drone, tethered autonomous drone with Unlimited flight time, aerial live video

Posted by Charbax – May 19, 2017

As a spin off from Swiss ETH Zurich University, the Fotokite Pro is the drone that CNN, BBC and many other News media are already using to easily create live aerial video for example to report live when people were queuing to vote at the US election, it is the only drone approved to be used by the FCC because it is tethered. Being tethered allows it to be lighter since it doesn't fly with a battery, it can fly for an unlimited amount of time getting power through the cable, it's safe because it is tethered not needing on board GPS, on board computer vision, and more. A live low-latency uncompressed Full HD video downlink enables effective framing and live broadcast using an external HDMI or SDI port. The Fotokite Phi in the consumer version, more compact, lighter and most affordable GoPro-carrying quadcopter yet that was successfully crowdfunded for $249 each at Indiegogo.

Intel Altera ARM Powered FPGA 96Boards Chameleon96 development board by Novtech

Posted by Charbax – May 19, 2017

Running Altera Cyclone V SoC HPS consists of a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor, a rich set of peripherals, and a multiport memory controller shared with logic in the FPGA, giving you the flexibility of programmable logic and the cost savings of hard intellectual property (IP) with the Intel ARM SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite. The Arrow Chameleon96 Community Board features an Intel PSG Cyclone V SoC FPGA based system that adheres to the Linaro http://96Boards.org open platform specification. The board includes industry standard interfaces and expansion headers for 96Boards compatible mezzanine cards and interface kits. Unlike other 96Boards, the Chameleon96 board includes Intel PSG's SoC FPGA which combines the performance of a dual core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with the flexibility of programmable logic, providing the ultimate in system customization. Programmable logic is ideal for accelerating embedded software with custom hardware.

The Chameleon96 board includes a quantum-resistant Key Agreement Protocol and Digital Signature Algorithm reference design from SecureRF. These Public Key methods feature small, fast, and very low-energy solutions designed to accelerate the development of authentication and data protection solutions for the Internet of Things. For availability of additional security methods for the Chameleon96 board, including Secure Boot, Secure Firmware Updates and Secure Firmware Delivery.

Christophe Arviset, ESA Gaia and Euclid Missions Online Data Sharing

Posted by Charbax – May 9, 2017

Christophe Arviset is the Head of the Data and Engineering Division at ESA’s European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC). The European Space Agency’s (ESA) current mission Gaia and upcoming one Euclid will generate massive amounts of astronomical data to be made freely available on-line through powerful data management systems. This big data era brings a change of paradigm and associated big challenges for building these missions’ archives. The current use case of “bring the data to the user” is being replaced by the new concept of “bring the user to the data”. This new generation of science archives is transforming into science exploitation and collaborative platforms, where the users can send her/his code to the data, run it on computing and storage services provided directly by the archive (where the data reside), and easily share all this with other scientists they’re collaborating with.

You can watch Christophe Arviset's keynote at Linaro Connect here:
