See ByteSnap's Demo at Embedded World 2019 SnapUI at Embedded World 2019 ByteSnap is back at the world's largest embedded electronics trade show this month - with a demonstration of our highly flexible UI framework. Our interactive cooker control demo will be running SnapUI Linux on NXP's much-anticipated i.MX7ULP processor at Embedded World 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany. SnapUI is ByteSnap's high-efficiency graphic framework which allows you to create high performance user interfaces for low power devices. ByteSnap Director Graeme Wintle says “We are very excited showing SnapUI working on the 7ULP, it demonstrates the efficiency and versatility of the framework on such a low power device.” The demonstration uses the SnapUI framework to render using the OpenGL accelerated GPU of the i.MX7 [...]

With 2018 now behind us, our engineering consultants have been wondering what the year ahead holds for the embedded systems industry
We take a festive watercooler moment to reflect on a very busy year at ByteSnap Design – our 10th anniversary of creating embedded systems designs for customers around the world
One million seconds to Christmas MARKING 1 MILLION SECONDS TO CHRISTMAS FOR CHARITY With the countdown to the big day continuing - we decided to mark 1 million seconds to Christmas with a festive coffee morning for charity. Earlier today, at 10:13:20 (exactly one million seconds to Christmas), ByteSnap staff gathered together for "Mince Pies and Munchies" to raise money for our Christmas charity this year - the Buddy Bag Foundation. The Buddy Bag Foundation was set up by Karen Williams in response to the increasing number of children fleeing violent situations at home and ending up in emergency accommodation. The charity prepares essentials back packs for children entering emergency care after a traumatic incident. The purpose of the Buddy Bags is [...]
EV Charging: PlugFest 2018 Review PlugFest 2018 - so what was it really like? An update now on our VIGIL Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) project! We’ve been busy working alongside our consortium partners on the foundation of our pioneering V2G platform. ByteSnap is developing the OCPP module and companion app for the V2G system. As part of our VIGIL project R&D, two ByteSnap engineers took part in an international EV testing symposium recently. They’re held at different destinations around the world each year and this was our first time at such an event. So, was it worth it…? Read our Q & A and find out… PlugFest 2018 Review – Q & A Where and when? The 10th International Testing Symposium was held on [...]
Birmingham 10K: ByteSnap Runners Among Record-Breaking Participants ByteSnap Runners Join Thousands for City Run L-R: Calum, Chris and Ville at the end of the run Three ByteSnap engineers have vowed to take on the 2019 Birmingham 10K Run after a snap decision to join this year's event. Calum, Chris and Ville were among a record-breaking 8,000 runners participating in the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k earlier this month, on May Bank Holiday Sunday. The engineers were last minute entrants: "As an alumnus, a few weeks ago I got a letter from the University of Birmingham urging me to take part," explained Chris. "I'd done quite a bit of trail running, so I thought I'd try an official, timed run - and managed [...]
FPGA Design: Connecting Custom Peripherals to AXI Using BRAM Interface Download the new eBook: FPGA Design - Interfacing Over AXI Using A Simple Address Data Bus Download the new eBook: FPGA Design - Interfacing Over AXI Using A Simple Address Data Bus In FPGA design, interfacing over AXI (ARM eXtensible Interface) is an increasingly popular choice due to its status as the most widespread AMBA interface, enabling the connection of potentially hundreds of Masters and Slaves in complex SoCs. However, it does add in an additional layer to managing IP. Time has to be spent supervising and generating IP outputs before they can be incorporated into the mainline project, and simulating the design can be a challenge in itself! One option that significantly [...]
When the WPA2 vulnerability, better known as the WiFi KRACK was revealed late last year, what followed was a torrent of concerning headlines suggesting that all WiFi communications could be decrypted. Whilst it is vulnerability at the core of one of the most popular forms of WiFi network security, all is not as bad as some of the articles might lead you to believe. We're going to take a realistic look at how this attack works and outline some important steps users and service providers can take to keep networks and devices safe. WiFi KRACK: Four key steps to manage the risk and protect your network What is a KRACK? KRACK, meaning Key Reinstallation AttaCK, works by abusing a flaw found in the WPA2 implementation declared [...]
Our series Windows Embedded Compact Migration: What You Need to Know examines the primary issues around planning for the lack of support for Microsoft Embedded devices, as end of life dates for Windows CE and Mobile OS beckon ever closer. We kicked off the series with Part 1 when we looked at key considerations such as platform longevity and security. And Part 2 went into greater detail on OS migration, and developing your legacy WinCE environment for the future. So - straight into the final instalment and how to migrate Windows CE... Windows Embedded Compact Migration - What You Need to Know Part 3: Application Development: Migration of Windows CE to new embedded environment Both Android and Linux present opportunities for handheld devices that will no longer be [...]
