Tech Chat: Virtualization in Embedded Systems with Baurzhan Ismagulov and Alexander Smirnov

Today we’re talking about virtualization in Embedded Systems. This is particularly different from host-based virtualization. For that reason I wanted to welcome major experts in this special area: Baurzhan Ismagulov and Alexander Smirnov from Ilbers – Technology for better life.

Ilbers provides Mango – a bare-metal Type 1 hypervisor. If you do not understand a word what this means – jump back to the previous episode #33 of the MES-podcast Combining the Uncombinable and fill up your missing knowledge. Mango was nominated for the Embedded Award 2015 at the Embedded World exhibition in Nuremberg. They have created a great piece of software which will provide a lot of benefit into embedded projects.

Already at the Embedded World I have had an amazing talk at their booth. But how much more deeper do we get into our todays tech-chat. We’re tackling the main use cases for using virtualization: combination and isolation. We’re discussing the main feature of Mango, as there are: static partitioning, bounded latency, no scheduler and a marvellous small footprint. And we come up with the general pros and cons of virtualization in embedded systems. For the latter have a look at Alexander’s talk at the Embedded Conference Scandinavia last year.

For all the ones out there who believe in doing things by themselves. Here’s the deal: Ilbers provides a Mango-demonstrator for the BananaPI. Just study their Getting Started Manual and give it a try.

But first, stay with me and enjoy the chat.

Deadline Pressure – Seven artful ways to beat it – MES032

clockDeadline Pressure – Seven artful ways to beat it – MES032

Today I wanted to talk about deadline pressure. Everybody of us might have some experience with these special working conditions. There’s a deadline – and you have to achieve it.

In this episode I will the first time take some parts out of one of my favourite books. The first book I ever bought about “Software Engineering”. Written by Tom Gilb in 1988. It’s not named Agile or Lean, but the idea is the same. He named it “Evolutionary Delivery”. And there’s one chapter inside about Deadline Pressure.

I want to use this episode to present you some really interestic principles and ideas how to beat deadline pressure.

Some of you might be complaining that they are not ethical or not following your personal policies. No problem, then simply take them as aphorisms you can use to bias your thinking. Especially when you undergo deadline pressure you will grab for every straw and perhaps you will be very thankful remember that there was this episode. If it gives you an escape – sometimes the End justifies the Means.

Stay tuned and be inspired.

The year starts with the Embedded World – MES030

NXP-Show-Truck 225x300The year starts with the Embedded World – MES030

The business year starts with the Embedded World! According to a  former colleague of mine it does. He has aligned his whole business activities around this exhibition. And it seems there are a lot others who are doing the same. From their perspective the Embedded World should not be underestimated.

I was visiting Nuremberg at Tuesday, the first day of the Embedded World. My main intention was to feel the course, the track, like a compass needle. Where’s the market tending to go? What are new ideas, new products? What are the manufacturers doing? Are there any trends at all?
