Last year, NXP and Amzon introduced an advanced IoT module based on the LPC54018 Microcontroller. The voice control solution is one of the best in the market, which brings attention to NXP's new LPC540xx MCU Series. However, when taking a deeper look, it is suprising to find that there have been some upgrades and addition to the family already after launching for only less than a year!     The new members of the LPC540xx MCU series includes several highlights and feature addition to ...
  At Embedded World last month, many new products were introduced, and I was certainly busy reading up on the latest news.  A new product I came across, an Automotive box-PC based on an Arm® Cortex®-A9 core, made me want to re-look at some of the Cortex-A9 products that NXP has launched in past years -after all, the i.MX 6 series is still one of the most comprehensive, most scalable portfolios in the market and it continues to be a crowd favorite with new customers.  Th ...

If you want to design for some certain IoT application based on an Arm-cored microcontroller, it might be really expensive. Although there are various of development platforms in the market to choose from, but you have to spend a lot to buy even just a single piece. I am talking about fifty dollars or even a hundred for one board, that could scare lots of individual developers away in no time.   Sometimes people just want to create a sub-system for a larger scale design, or do some creatio ...

IoT is such an evolving space that every few months something new can pop up and take over the conversation. When I was forwarded Premier Farnell's 2018 Global IoT Survey today, I anxiously opened it up and was looking for the surprises--those jewels of new information that make me think "I didn't know that," or a simply a "WoW!"   The survey was conducted late 2018 over a two month period and received well over a thousand responses. "Global" should be stressed here; the responses spanned ...
NFC is a great way to identify and authenticate consumables & accessories in industrial and consumer products. Using NFC helps to ensure that only genuine parts are being used and allows to make adjustments of device settings according to part manufacturer, type and end user preferences. See attached slides for further details. ...
  What was the last thing you bought online? Why didn’t you go to a store to buy it? Was it for the vast number of items you could scroll through before making a choice or the recommendations that the website or app pulled up for you, remembering your choices and interests from a previous visit, or the ease with which you paid for it with a card whose details were already stored with the website?   The online shopping experience is leaps and bounds ahead of the traditional expe ...
While the definition of the Internet of Things may change depending on who you ask, there is little doubt that this hardware, software and internet phenomenon has crept into all our lives – both professional and personal – and is here to stay.  Data - the storage of it and the automation of what we ask it to do for us - will likely be the single greatest influence on technological development in the coming years.  But far from fearing it, its ability to reduce the risk of h ...
  With concerns rising amongst citizens, the USDA issued the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard (NBFDS) last month intended for manufacturers, importers, retailers and other entities in retail space for the disclosure of bioengineered food and ingredients on product labels. The move was made with a view to bring in more transparency and provide consumers with standardized formats to disclose information pertaining to bioengineered food products.   Earlier referred to as ...

Overview GPS WWAN DEVINFO Summary Overview The Modem Abstraction Layer (MAL) is part of the WNC SDK but I consider it separately because it is focused on controlling the LTE modem. The WNC18Qx device uses a Qualcom MDM9207 chipset which contains 4 ARM Cortex-A7 cores.  In this chip, the LTE modem code runs on 3 of the 4 cores while the last core is running eLinux.  As delivered from Qualcom the LTE modem interaction is through a Radio Interface Layer (RIL).  T ...
Overview Overall Program Flow Main Threads Used Hardware Interfaces Interrupts Binary I/O's I2C Interface Overview The WNC M18Qx Module, running Embedded Linux,  provides access to the hardware either through the Hardware Library, the Modem Abstraction Layer (MAL)--both of which are provided by the WNC SDK--and by using the Azure SDK (which provides the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to interact with Azure).  The overall organization for the ap ...
