Our friend Jacob Beningo is a well-known lecturer in the embedded space. This month he will host a webinar sharing his experiences on designing secure bootloaders for MCUs. He will use an Cortex-M MCU and Atollic TrueSTUDIO develoment tools.
Atollic TrueSTUDIO Pro (v.8.1.0 and later version) have extended kernel-aware debugging support by allowing to visualise FreeRTOS run-time statistics. FreeRTOS can optionally be configured to collect information about each tasks execution time. In Atollic TrueSTUDIO the execution time for each task can be visualised as the percentage of the total execution time for the application using the kernel-aware debug views for FreeRTOS.
In this article we describe how to make the run-time statistics work in Atollic TrueSTUDIO Pro 8.1.0.
Join us from 13-15 September 2017 in Eindhoven to learn the skills you need to be a professional embedded developer. We are offering an intensive 3-day, hands-on training course in ARM Cortex-M development. This training will teach you everything worth knowing about the Cortex-M cores and the GNU compiler and debugger tool chain. You will also learn the ins- and outs- of the ECLIPSE® IDE, and how to use it for advanced Cortex-M development and debugging.
Learn the essential skills you need to be a professional embedded developer with this hands-on training course.
Many embedded developers new to ARM Cortex-M devices are unaware of the powerful debug capabilities these devices enable in their silicon design. Professional IDEs, like Atollic TrueSTUDIO Pro, leverage these and provide debugging power any professional embedded developer should be aware of.
In this blog post, I will explain how Cortex-M cores enable highly useful debugger features for “live” visualization of variable values in real-time.
Most industries change over time, and some are even significantly disrupted. I would argue the embedded industry is quite conservative and resistant to change. For example, in spite of all the hardware and connectivity changes over the last 20 years the tasks of an embedded developer haven’t changed much.

In this blog post, I will give you a difficult coding task to crack. One of my colleagues presented it to the Atollic development team over a coffee break a few days ago, and I thought this could be an interesting problem for other developers to discuss over the coffee break as well! Are you up for a challenge to prove you are an expert developer?

Iot devices are being trusted to handle more critical data all the time, making it vital for the data not to become corrupted. This has increased the need for reliable file systems that protect data in the case of unexpected power loss, which is common in these devices.
In this episode of our embedded development movie series, Frederic's boss sets an unreasonable deadline for Frederic.
Watch the video below and follow Frederic's efforts as an embedded developer and the struggles of meeting management expectations.
Embedded system complexity has reached the point where many systems require a real-time operating system. In this free webinar, attendees will become familiar with the design methodologies necessary to properly schedule tasks in addition to understanding when and where to use mutexes, semaphores and message queues.
Important concepts such as preventing priority inversions, deadlock and thread starvation will be examined. The webinar will provide hands-on demonstrations using the STMicrolectronics STM32F7 Nucleo Board which uses an ARM Cortex-M7 processor with the Atollic TrueSTUDIO toolchain. Learn more!
In this short video you get to meet John. Like you, he is a skilled embedded developer. But he has a problem. In this episode of our embedded development movie series, John struggles with a variable that gets wrong values randomly.
I think we have all been in the same situation. Watch the video below and follow John's efforts as an embedded developer!
Atollic now has a new Project Import Converter supporting IAR® EmbeddedWorkbench® for ARM® (EWARM) projects. The new Project Import Converter automatically updates EWARM projects to Atollic TrueSTUDIO format during import.
