atEmbedded Officemany things have changed in recent months. Below, you’ll find a brief summary of all the news.
A New Partnership
Over the years, the quantity of data managed by the typical embedded system has increased, and so has the importance of the data. More and moredatamust be collected, managed and analyzed.Multicoreplatformsraise the issue of concurrent access to data, and the global linking of systems means that data can be accessed from, literally, anywhere. In many applications, such changes are readily apparent.
Embedded Office has a new partner who supports developers with data management solutions for embedded systems and devices. The company ITTIA enables complex systems to be analysed and interpreted efficiently and profitable.
We are very pleased to be partnering with ITTIA and are looking forward to exciting new projects with our joint customers.
The growing complexity of applications and their increasing demands on embedded systems necessitate more and more computing power. Embedded platforms with multicore CPUs are the ideal solution to such problems.
To help developers make efficient use of the resources available in multi-core systems, Embedded Office extended the real-time kernel µC/OS-MPU in the direction of symmetric multi-processing (SMP) some time ago.
Certifying those projects is our next step. In multicore certification projects Embedded Office is responsible for the following:

Update CANopen V3.3.0
Besides minorchangesto reducevariouscompiler warningswehave made the followingenhancements:
Ability to monitorup to 127neighbor nodesin the CANopennetwork via"Heartbeat Consumer". If there are changes to the internal NMT mode of the monitored node, or delays of the heartbeat message, or even total failure of the node, the application is notified. Thus, reactions to these events can be very efficiently implemented in the application.
Forsimplifying thenetwork configuration, the LSS slave CiA DS305has been added. As a result, baud rate and node ID can now be set via an LSS Master during comissioning of the CANopen network.
The CANopen Config Tool has been extended to hide indivual object entries in the EDS file. The intention was to provide particular object records for the manufacturing of CANopen devices; possible uses include calibration, setting of the serial number, and similar operations.
