This article will explore the classic division algorithms and how they can be implemented efficiently, in terms of code space and execution time, by exploiting machine features. Don’t expect anything astounding here, the algorithms are classic for a reason: this path is well-trodden.
This is the first in a series of articles that attempt to dispel the mystique around division algorithms. We do this by presenting coded algorithms that correctly divide, and describe how variations of these algorithms are used in emRun and emFloat, our C runtime and floating-point libraries.
Recently at SEGGER, we released a brand new product: the Flasher Hub. During development it became clear that the Flasher Hub needed an easy user interface for monitoring and configuration. The device itself is headless: No display and limited resources. Years of experience with web interfaces used in our J-Links and Flashers made our decision easy. […]
With the chip crisis and the standstill of assembly lines in the automotive industry, supplier management has become a hot topic. Beyond the repeated shortage of semiconductors, there are other risks worth taking into consideration when selecting suppliers. The quality of a supplier for embedded hardware and software can determine the success or failure of […]
In recent times, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have become hot topics, enabling useful applications such as assistive and autonomous driving. Intelligent accessories in the home are now mainstream, employing adaptive audio and acoustic beamforming. This series of articles introduces what’s on the bench at SEGGER Labs…and coming soon.
In 2020, one of Germany’s leading B2B electronics magazines, Elektronik, conducted a reader test with SEGGER’s development environment Embedded Studio. This kind of test lets readers apply to receive the product free of charge, to test it according to a previously defined set of criteria and give their feedback and a rating. The products’ manufacturers […]
After posting my very personal thoughts about a job change on my LinkedIn profile, I was asked to publish an English version after all. Here it is! During the last few weeks I was often asked why I changed my job and joined SEGGER Microcontroller as Marketing and PR Manager. So I thought I would […]
In 2016, we started releasing 64-bit builds of Embedded Studio for Windows. This improved the build performance by about 20% compared to the 32-bit version. Apple recently released the M1, which uses the AArch64/ARMv8-A instruction set. How does Embedded Studio perform on the new chip? We did the comparison again.
SEGGER’s J-Trace PRO streaming trace probe and Ozone debugger make a great team. One highlight of this symbiotic relationship is the Timeline window. It allows users to correlate and visualize data sampling, current consumption, and program execution in one combined signal plot. This article takes a closer look at this functionality.
My previous blog post covered the SEGGER Linker for RISC-V and the benefits provided by enhanced relaxation. This article continues to explore what SEGGER is doing with its linker technology, advancing what is typically possible.
