ARM Cortex-M7 in STM32 F7 STMicroelectronics, IS2T brings MicroEJ Java apps store for embedded market STMicroelectronics launches STM32 F7 series of very high performance Microcontroller Units based on the ARM Cortex-M7 core. The STM32 F7 devices are the world’s first ARM Cortex-M7 based 32-bit microcontrollers, improving on the benchmark performance. Taking advantage of ST’s ART Accelerator as well as an L1 cache, the STM32 F7 devices deliver the maximum theoretical performance of the Cortex-M7 no matter whether code is executed from embedded Flash or external Memory: 1000 CoreMark/428 DMIPS at 200 MHz fCPU.

Demonstrated running on the STM32 F7, IS2T MicroEJ SDK enables embedded Java development for any MCU and MPU, from the smallest ARM Cortex-M0+ to the newest Cortex-M7 and beyond. The embedded Java platform includes IS2T Java Virtual Machine (footprint: 28KB of RAM, 1.5KB of RAM) and IS2T libraries for IoT, GUI and communication applications. Boot time to first line of Java main is 2ms on a Cortex-M4@120MHz.

IoT solutions includes TPC/IP, Wifi, MQTT, Websockets, HTTP, JSON, XML, COAP... protocols. GUI solutions includes a full set of widgets, drawing, motions, anti-aliased... libraries - typical animations at 60FPS with less than 10% CPU load. Full Java applications run on MCU starting from 256KB of flash.

The MicroEJ demo running on STM32F7 device shows the Waddapps store connection, an online store of embedded applications that can be downloaded to the STM32F7 through any link (e.g. ethernet, Wifi, Bluetooth). Apps are downloaded, installed, started, stopped, uninstalled without reset - same as smartphone users would typically do with an Apps Store.

Google Project Ara development boards at +Linaro Connect, Greybus status with +Greg Kroah-Hartman shows the Google Project Ara prototype phone and development board, and he talks about Greybus the protocol that they are developing to make it possible for these hardware modules to talk to each other and to the host module, they can be hot swappable, they have to be able to describe themselves so everything just works smoothly, they work on the knowledge that they have from USB, PCI, Firewire and all the previous protocols that people have implemented, they work on the base level of what UniPro can do, and they go from there. This is just another sub-system of Linux that drivers plug into. +Rob Herring is the project tech lead at Linaro for Project Ara, and he talks about how the Linaro guys are working on the Kernel portions, the ARM Applications Processor modules and the Android modifications to support hardware modules hotplug in a Smartphone. http://armdevices.net/2015/02/22/google-project-ara-development-boards-at-linaro-connect-greybus-status-with-greg-kroah-hartman/

Japan Display to release a great sounding Pixel Qi like reflective/transflective LCD for the always-on Smartwatch LCD display. It uses 200x less power than conventional LCD they say. They should also make it for Smartphones, Tablets and Chromebooks! Comon Japan! Bring on the new innovative ultra low power LCD! Backlights should only be optional such as for a night time use.
JDI has announced a new LCD panel designed specifically for the low power requirements of the smartwatch market.

+Robert Kaiser I really hope so. I also hope that +Mary Lou Jepsen is getting Google to invest Billions into mass producing Pixel Qi type display for the whole Android/Wear/Chromebook market. I think the issue might have been the $1+ Billion required to tune the LCD factories into making this new type of reflective/transflective LCD for the mass market. I look forward to see how big Japan Display plans to make this Smartwatch display and to see how it looks like!

Freescale i.MX 6SoloX ARM Cortex-A9 with ARM Cortex-M4  and the Mentor Embedded Multicore Framework Freescale launches i.MX6SX for Heterogeneous Processing at Embedded World 2015, it has one ARM Cortex-A9 core running at 1Ghz and one ARM Cortex-M4 core running at 200Mhz. Enabling the Heterogeneous Processing on the new Freescale i.MX 6SoloX , +Ricardo Anguiano of Mentor Graphics shows their Mentor Embedded Multicore Framework that enables two capabilities necessary for taking advantage of mixed core architectures: 1) remote processor lifecycle management and 2) inter-processor communication. Remote processor lifecycle management is based on the open source standard remoteproc, and allows the master core to power and boot a remote core. The inter-processor communication mechanism is based on the open source standard rpmsg, and allows the establishment of a communication channel across different types of cores and operating systems.

The demo shown at the Freescale booth at Embedded World boots Mentor Embedded Linux on the A9 core. The Linux system runs a Qt based patient monitoring application. When the start button is pressed on the Qt application, remoteproc interfaces are used to power up the M4 core and launch the Nucleus RTOS firmware responsible for capturing patient data, then rpmsg interfaces are used to establish a VirtIO based communication mechanism between the applications across the mixed core and operating system architecture. Pressing the stop button on the Qt application the reverse happens, ending in a powered off M4 core.

The entire runtime software architecture is instrumented and the trace data is visualized in Sourcery Analyzer for simultaneous timeline performance analysis and debug of both operating systems and applications.

Huawei Mate7 vs Note4 vs iPhone6+ I let real people compare the top-3 brand high-end phablets in the world, among Huawei Mate7 (3rd Smartphone brand in the world), Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (1st Smartphone brand in the world) and iPhone 6 Plus (2nd Smartphone brand in the world). These are flagships of the high-end mass market phablet market worldwide of this moment, from the top-3 Smartphone manufacturers in the world. This video highlights display size to body ratio, camera feature and large screen enjoyment. Come back for 2 more episodes to be posted on http://ARMdevices.net I think the Huawei Mate7 (which I have been using for the past 3 months) is the best phablet among those 3. Check back before MWC in the next 2-3 days for my review of my Huawei Mate7.

Google Project Ara at Linaro Connect 2015 Smartphone hardware modules Google Project Ara is being shown by Linaro CEO George Grey, as the modifications to Linux on ARM to support Project Ara are being developed and optimized together with Linaro engineers, many of the Google Project Ara engineers meet at the Linaro Connect conference to advance their development for the project. Linaro is one of many companies working for Google on Project Ara, focused on the firmware and on the software to make Android work with removable modules, to communicate through the UniPro bus for hardware modules. Linaro has a lot of experts in Linux and the Linux kernel, able to deliver what Google needs for this project. http://armdevices.net/2015/02/21/google-project-ara-at-linaro-connect-2015/

ZTE ZX296702 Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 for Set-top-boxes at Linaro Connect The Linaro ZTE Landing Team engineers talk about optimizing Android Kitkat boot time using TuxOnIce hibernation mechanism on ZTE SmartTV board. The net result is that it takes around 10 seconds to get into the Android home screen from a fresh power-on compared to the original over 30 seconds bootup time among other optimizations that they are doing for the ZTE Powered Set-top-box which is in millions of homes in China and around the world. http://armdevices.net/2015/02/20/zte-zx296702-dual-core-arm-cortex-a9-for-set-top-boxes-at-linaro-connect/

A ton of delicious healthy looking/tasting vegetarian-only food as an all-you-can-eat Buffet, I like the fake meats in nice sauce with fried rice, but there are tons of much more healthy Asian vegetarian things, and all the efforts you put into eating the healthy food, you can cancel by unlimited ice cream, cakes, chocolate covered fruits and soda if you want. The normal price per person is 770TWD, they close every day at 9PM.

Simple. Get the Goat from Nisyros and the Elephant Eye for desert with a 1L mineral water. The waitress recommended me those and it was really delicious but it'll cost you 23.50€ without the tip (15€ Goat dish, 6€ Elephant Eye desert and 2.50€ 1L mineral water), which is a bit more than a 2.50€ chicken or pork Gyros from the street.
