The growing Zephyr RTOS community with Kate Stewart Zephyr Project Linux Foundation Senior Director

Posted by – March 18, 2020

With the vendor-neutral open source environment, contributors have played an integral role in advancing the Zephyr RTOS. Last year, more than 500 contributors helped launch the 1.14 LTS release, which offers vendors a customizable operating system that supports product longevity, security and interoperability. Since then, the community has hit several additional milestones and now has more than 600 active contributors and support for more than 200 boards. In fact, last month Zephyr had 1390 commits – which equates to almost 2 commits an hour.

PHYTEC Update & Device management

Posted by – March 17, 2020

In this video Martin Schwan from PHYTEC Messtechnik Gmbh explains to you about the device management platform that is tailored to PHYTEC products, and how we provides a solution for the management and implementation of software updates, suitable for a large number of devices.
OTA field updates are a common requirement in modern embedded device deployments .We facilitate the roll-out of your software into the field by preparing the RAUC Robust Auto-Update Controller in all current BSPs. The update client ensures the reliable installation of signed BSP updates on the embedded systems and is supported by Yocto in the meta-rauc layer.
With the RAUC update framework, the first major component will make sure that your updates are installed safely and securely whereas the second component is a deployment server hawkBit that manages your update artifacts, controls roll-out strategies, gives feedback about device update states, etc.
PHYTEC supports you both in implementing the update mechanisms and in creating the appropriate infrastructure – from RAUC configuration and setting up cloud services to protecting the hardware from installing malicious software.

Nordic Semiconductor nRF5340 dual Arm Cortex-M33 at Embedded World 2020, NB-IoT, LTE-M, BLE, Quuppa

Posted by – March 11, 2020

Nordic Semiconductor’s Bjørn Kvaale shows the latest cellular IoT NB-IoT, LTE-M, GPS and BLE Bluetooth 5.1 Direction Finding, Zigbee and Thread solutions for development on the market today. Showing their Bluetooth Low Energy solutions including the newly launched nRF5340 SoC featuring dual Arm Cortex-M33 processors, truly secure, with two flexible processors, the advanced feature set, and an operating temperature up to 105 °C, makes it the ideal choice for professional lighting, advanced wearables, and other complex IoT applications The nRF5340 PDK is the preview development kit for the nRF5340 SoC, containing everything needed to get started with development, on a single board. The PDK supports development with an extensive range of wireless protocols. It supports Bluetooth Low Energy, including the Long Range and high-speed 2 Mbps features. Mesh protocols like Bluetooth mesh, Thread and Zigbee can be run concurrently with Bluetooth LE, enabling smart phones to provision, commission, configure and control mesh nodes. NFC, ANT, 802.15.4 and 2.4 GHz proprietary protocols are also supported. The PDK is bundled with an NFC antenna that quickly enables testing of nRF5340’s NFC-A tag peripheral. A SEGGER J-Link debugger is on the board, enabling full-blown programming and debugging, of both the nRF5340 SoC and external targets. All analog and digital interfaces, and GPIOs are available via headers and edge connectors. The kit is Arduino Uno Rev3 hardware compatible, meaning it can be easily interfaced with external device shields, including the Power Profiler Kit. Four buttons and four LEDs simplify input and output to and from the nRF5340 SoC, they are all user-programmable. An on-board external memory is connected to the 96 MHz QSPI peripheral in the nRF5340 SoC. The PDK is typically powered with USB, but can be powered by a wide range of sources, within the supply range of 1.7 to 5.0 V. In addition to USB, it can be powered with external source, but also includes a CR2032 battery holder and a Li-Po battery connector, for in-field testing. Current consumption can be measured by using the dedicated current measurement pins. The nRF Connect SDK is the software development kit for the nRF5340 SoC, and it has board support for the nRF5340 PDK.

Embedded World PHYTEC booth tour with Yves Astein

Posted by – March 7, 2020

In this booth tour, Yves Astein (product manager Phytec) explains about how PHYTEC develops and manufactures System on Modules and Single Board Computers for industrial use in Mainz, Germany. He is focusing on a high level of customizability as well as interface standardization of PHYTEC SoMs and how they incorporate essential circuitry common to all embedded applications. By designing a SOM into an application the customers can avoid the challenge and risk of advanced microprocessor design, fine pitch BGA, high-speed routing, design verification, EMC conformance, and the significant effort of board bring-up and BSP development. PHYTEC has passed numerous horizontal and vertical directives and standards such as the UL certification (UL), radio transmitter directive RED, power station approval KTA, automotive directive e1, railway and medical certifications. PHYTEC also has experience in developing modules for global use and getting them certified. PHYTEC’s Single Board Computer can be modified and configured according to customer wishes due to their constantly growing Design Library with its off-the-shelf Building Blocks. PHYTEC also offers solutions for Internet of Things and Embedded Imaging as well as hardware specific software. Throughout the video, Yves explains about the working demo of various modules and customer applications.
