DEVELOPMENT TOOLS & OPERATING SYSTEMS FEATURE
ANDREW LONGHURST, WITTENSTEIN
 
Why should you consider an RTOS? For most, it comes down to knowing ?what you do best?: if you have always programmed with bare-metal, then it becomes routine to always program that way. If you have never used an RTOS, you may not be aware of the benefits an RTOS can bring to an embedded project. Whilst they are more powerful and complex, using an RTOS is not necessarily a more time-consuming development route.
 
 
 
 
 
PROCESSING FEATURE
COLIN WALLS, ECD CONTRIBUTOR
 
The C++ has been slow to take off among embedded developers. Although many engineers are enthusiastic, many are very pragmatic and take an ?if it ain?t broke, don?t fix it? approach and stick with C. Often there is concern about one specific feature; commonly that feature is exception handling.

STORAGE & MEMORY NEWS
ALIX PAULTRE, SENIOR TECHNOLOGY EDITOR
 
Swissbit introduced a family of 3D-NAND-SSD products optimized for demanding industrial- and NetCom applications, with product versions with 2.5-inch housing, and m.2-, SlimSATA- and mSATA-modules. Using Toshiba BiCS3 NAND specified and pretested from -40 and 85?C, the industrial SATA-6-Gb/s-SSDs have Flash controllers that support a 165-bit-LDPC error correction.

POWER ELECTRONICS FEATURE
BILL SCHWEBER, JAFFA ENGINEERING
 
Inexperienced electronic-design engineers often assume that a good power-supply rail just ?happens,? while more-experienced ones know that a rock-solid, noise-free rail doesn?t come easy but is essential for stable, consistent, glitch-free system performance. But there?s more to a power supply than just its ability to provide a steady DC voltage despite load and line changes, system transients, noise and other aberrations.

SECURITY FEATURE
NIEL SMITH, SOCIONEXT AMERICA INC.
 
Home security devices are very popular these days as they provide home or office with extra security over the facilities. They are easy to install, readily available off-the-shelf, and can be purchased at reasonable prices.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
IoT NEWS
LAURA DOLAN, TECHNOLOGY EDITOR
 
Sectigo has joined forces with NetObjex for a secure edge computing technology pact, offering businesses and manufacturers a secured, trusted computing infrastructure that ranges from IoT edge devices to the cloud and blockchain.

End-to-end security, going from the Edge of the IoT to the Cloud, is not something you hear a lot about. Why? Because it?s hard to implement. Securing the individual pieces is far easier, but then you?re left to connect those sometimes incongruent pieces.
