Kerry Johnson, Director of Product Management, QNX Software Systems discusses determining factors when adding software intelligence to products. Embedded developers need to consider the merits of moving from a software solution built entirely in-house to one that uses an off-the-shelf operating system. An option is for developers to look at standard interfaces to ensure future portability such as OpenGL ES, OpenVG and OpenKODE.
ARM announced the launch of the ARM® Mali Developer Center. The Developer Center offers a comprehensive suite of resources for graphics and embedded applications developers working with the Khronos OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0, OpenVG 1.0 and 1.1, as well as other APIs. Accessing these resources as members of the Mali ecosystem will enable developers targeting Mali graphics processing unit (GPU) platforms to bring best-in-class content to market.
Texas Instruments debuts first two devices from its new Sitara family, the AM3505 and AM3517 ARM microprocessors (MPU), and an AM3517 evaluation module. TI's high-performance ARM MPUs are the first Cortex-A8 processor-based solutions optimized for industrial applications. AM3517 key features builds on the AM3505 with an additional PowerVR(TM) SGX graphics engine to accelerate 3D graphical user interfaces. The graphics engine can process up to 10 Mpolygons/sec and supports OPENGL® ES 2.0.
