Early in the year I was looking into the solution for creating a unified application handling two different task completely independent of each other (on a hardware level) to achieve a assured reliability desired by real time system. In the article  I was working around creating such an application. Until then I did not see what was obvious in the nature of applications it could also be used. I also forgot to see who are these companies main customers. I will answer that in a little while, why that is important but let me explain what I was looking for ...

While working on embedded system I quickly graduated from 8 bit Arduino system to 32 bit ARM Cortex M3 system. I was attracted with ARM cortex M3 because of speed, low power consumption and lots and lots of IO port. Also it was self contained had enough memory for complex task and much more. So graduating to M3 was quite obvious, but soon I got into trouble.  I quickly realized that I have to do a lot of low level stuff by myself now. I though there is no library like Ardino IDE.

In  the last few years, we have seen a special kind of argument in public  discourse contending that a law, when enacted, will solve a problem that  we are facing. This argument has also been conveniently adopted by our  politicians. To them, this line of argument offers prospects of  electoral gains through mere lip service, and is a tool to ease the  pressure to act. At the same time it hides the executive failures which  have led to the current problem in the first place. We  should not forget that our constitution provides two sets of duties to  an elected ...

I was recently thinking about a problem of developing awesome interface to machines but at the same time exploiting the benefits of Realtime Operating System. One obvious solution was to take buy license to some RTOS along with their graphics library. But that wont come cheap.

In late 1990's, cost of labor became this single most factor for determining the profitability of big manufacturing companies. It was felt that labor in developed economies, do take up of resources than their Asian counterparts would take. It was a smart business decision at that time. Huge manufacturing houses developed in countries which had many mouth to feed but few hands at work. But by the end of 2009, this relationship soon translated from business to competition.
