Salomon Singer has spent over 35 years developing embedded software for products ranging from telephone systems to industrial control and fiber optics telecommunication systems. He is an expert in the proper use of real-time operating systems (RTOSes) and further specializes in development device drivers and real-time software. Salomon has a degree in Computer Science from Israel Institute of Technology.

How to Prioritize RTOS Tasks (and Why It Matters)

Presented by Barr Group Principal Engineer Salomon Singer, this webinar examines best practices for assigning fixed priorities to a set of real-time operating systems (RTOS) tasks and interrupt service routines (ISRs). Viewers will learn how and why to use optimal methods to allow a critical set of tasks and interrupt service routines to meet all of their deadlines – even during transient overload periods. Lessons learned can be applied to the development of any priority-based preemptive RTOS, including real-time Linux.

How to Find and Fix the Most Common Embedded Software Bugs

As if debugging traditional PC/server software or even smartphone apps wasn't hard enough, debugging embedded software adds significant challenges. This webinar introduces you to some of the most common embedded software bugs and teaches you how to find/fix/prevent them.

Mutexes and Semaphores Demystified

What's the difference between a mutex and a semaphore? Even very experienced firmware developers too often fail to fully appreciate the importance of using the correct tool for the job at hand. And, unfortunately, misuse of these two distinct types of synchronization primitives can lead to difficult to debug defects in embedded software, with potentially severe consequences in safety-critical medical devices, avionics and transportation equipment.
