Inexpensive Firmware Process Improvements for Small Teams

Are you a member of a small design team? Does your team struggle to use industry best practices for software development because they are believed to be too costly or difficult to setup and use? In this webinar, learn practical and easy-to-apply process improvements that even the smallest design teams can use to make firmware easier to code, debug and test, with a tools cost of less than $600.

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.

If you've got a lot of real-time tasks and tight deadlines, what's the best way to prioritize them? A technique called RMA guides the way.

How to Prevent and Detect Stack Overflow

The safety and security of every embedded system is dependent upon proper operation of the stack (or stacks, if there are multiple). If a stack overflow occurs, a major or minor malfunction is very likely to follow. Despite this, the stack in the majority of embedded systems is sized based on nothing more than a hunch. As well, run-time stack monitoring is too seldom used.
