Embedded Online: Jump Start Code Development to Minimize Software Defects
Tuesday, May 22, 2018 | 1pm - 2pm PM EDT | Beningo Embedded Group

Debugging an embedded system is one of the most time consuming and expensive activities that embedded software developers engage in. Survey results show that the average team spends 40% of a development cycle debugging their software! Developers can easily prevent, detect and eliminate defects to dramatically decrease the time spent troubleshooting which can accelerate their development, decrease  costs and improve product reliability. In this session, we are going to examine several techniques that can be used to quickly detect defects. We will develop a robust process that attendees can follow and implement to decrease the time they spend debugging and spend more time innovating. 

This session will utilize hands-on demonstrations using ST Microelectronics STM32, arm Keil MDK with ULINKplus and Percepio Tracealyzer 4 with source code being readily available for attendees.

Key Take-A-Ways:
-    How to effectively decrease the time spent troubleshooting software
-    The differences between bugs, defects and errors
-    8 Troubleshooting techniques for embedded systems
-    A code start-up process to prevent defects
-    Leveraging trace technology to detect defects
-    Tools necessary to troubleshoot a system

Using Reflectometry for a PPG Waveform
Maxim Integrated

Optical methods are among the most common approaches to biosensing for plants and animals. For example, remote sensing equipment from satellites routinely use reflectance quality to determine the greenness and stresses of vegetation, and pulse oximeters utilizing pulse plethysmograph (PPG) sensors are used to collect vital-sign data during doctors’ visits. Indeed, optical sensing is rather versatile, as these application examples indicate. Light, whether coherent or non-coherent, interacts with matter as it passes through and becomes absorbed, reflected, scattered, dispersed, or otherwise altered. And scientists can examine the magnitude and shape of light pulses, their spectral contents, and polarization to derive information about the analytes in the media that the light pulses have traversed.

Vibration Sensors D7S

Omron's D7S seismic sensors are earthquake detection sensors with high detection precision and low electricity consumption through 3-axis acceleration sensors and a unique SI value calculation algorithm. The D7S can be embedded easily due to its ultra-small size and ultra-low consumption. They have a spectral intensity (SI) high-precision earthquake indicator, which correlates highly with damage to structures. Internal memory and I2C interface enable the creation of original applications. Download now!
