XP Migration, What's Your Plan?


In April, Microsoft will be ending its support of Windows XP. What do you do to protect your investment? This popular operating system (OS) used by point-of-sale (POS) terminals, ATMs, medical devices, back-office servers, and industrial control systems need ongoing security patches to counter attacks from new virus, malware and code vulnerabilities. What can OEM do to ensure that systems handling mission-critical data or that require high availability remain compliant to the respective regulatory or auditing body?

Embedded systems and devices based on Windows XP Embedded will soon be facing the termination of Microsoft support. Unlike desktop systems, embedded devices have been developed for dedicated applications that are intended for life cycles of up to ten years or more. Many of these systems have also undergone certification in certain specific application areas and cannot simply adopt a new version of the OS without a long, complex and costly recertification. Lacking Microsoft support, there is still a strong need for support to delay end of life for these devices in much the same sense that there are independent vendors that offer such support for hardware components. In this case, it will require companies stepping to the plate who can provide ongoing support, maintenance and updates for XP Embedded-based systems;

MythBuster – “Extended Temperature” Embedded Computers

When integrating Single Board Computers (SBCs) into industrial, military, and aerospace systems, engineers typically specify an extended temperature range SBC for their embedded computing requirements. The “extended temperature” designation theoretically assures that the SBC will perform reliably in extreme temperature environments. If an SBC supplier labels their product as “extended temperature”, then it will be reliable in the field. Right?

The Internet of Things: Feeling Our Way to the Future

They were wrong about my flying car. But I’ve gotten over that after seeing it as a kid in all those “Wonderful World of Tomorrow” clips that flew around so many years ago. It is, of course, natural to try to project where further developments of today’s technology are going to take us, and it‘s certainly no crime to be optimistic. Then again, back in 1958 there was a terrible Boris Karloff film titled, Frankenstein 1970. We won‘t go there but needless to say, I‘m not holding my breath for a jet pack.

The ARM Module Market is Kicking into High Gear--and Standards are Lagging Behind

For a long time, a wide range of providers have divided up the embedded ARM module market between themselves with their own form factors. With the unveiling of the ARM Cortex A9 processor, large companies from the x86 module market are now entering the ring. As is normal in the x86 market, they are now striving for standardization on the ARM module market. The interesting question is why no standards have been established so far on the ARM module market, and whether the newly-proposed standards will gain acceptance on the market. In any case there is no unity among the large x86 companies, and as a result, alongside the proprietary systems two different standard concepts are available on the market. Read More
