We're excited to have our team member, Eystein Stenberg, providing two talks this April and we encourage you to join him!
He will be at the Embedded Linux Conference and OpenIoT Summit from April 4th to 6th in San Diego, and then speaking at the Embedded Systems Conference in Boston from April 13th to 14th.
He will be presenting two tracks:
Software updates for embedded devices are typically deployed as full image updates. There are many design considerations take into account in the partition table layout to enable full image updates, including
In our previous post, we discussed the need to check compatibility for software and devices when designing a solution to deploy software updates. We also saw that this entails discovering the hardware device type and the supported device type by the software update.Read more
When designing an embedded or IoT product, the problem of deploying software updates to the devices in the field quickly becomes a problem. The main drivers for having the ability to deploy updates are to fix bugs, security issues and add new features after the devices have left manufacturing. Not having a way to update the software or firmware puts companies at significant risk and competitive disadvantage.
In this post, we will look at some of the basic device information that needs to be in place to enable software updates.Read more
