Agility and Safety—Mutually Exclusive?

Thoughts from the Field JOHN MILLS, CEO The need for agility in development and the need for safety in embedded software appear to be mutually exclusive. The industry is asking “Does this have to be the case?” And in fact, as we can see discussed here, and here, some are beginning to assert not only that an […]

The Struggle is Real

Simulink is a powerful tool for developing application logic for an embedded system. Developing software using Simulink has numerous well-documented advantages over hand coding. However, as a model grows in size and complexity, the data connections that link the various sections of the model become more and more difficult to manage.  Common solutions to this […]

There Has to be a Better Way

There had to be a better way to more efficiently develop software. As a software manager at a Tier 1 in the late 90’s, I led an effort to transition from hand-written software to model-based design (MBD) with Stateflow and Simulink, and code generation with Embedded-Coder, for a Ford memory seat module.  Ford was a […]
