Coming Soon - Simplify and Accelerate Application Development With a Software Development Kit for Power Architecture Mcus

NXP has introduced a comprehensive, automotive-grade Software Development Kit (SDK) that includes the key software components necessary to operate the automotive MPC57 family MCUs. The first MCU that is supported by this SDK is our leading-edge microcontroller for gateway applications, the MPC5748G.

Coming Soon - Uncertainty Quantification and Management in Digital Engineering

This Webinar illustrates applications of Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) techniques that will be necessary for full implementation of model-based digital engineering. The role of UQ techniques and software, such as SmartUQ, in end-to-end system models, reduced order modeling and probabilistic analysis, the creation of an authoritative digital surrogate “truth source”, and the creation of uncertainty budgets will be discussed.

High-Speed Network Protocol for Faster, More Reliable Emergency Response

Anew network protocol — the Multi Node Label Routing (MNLR) protocol — was developed to improve the information flow between emergency responders at the scene of an incident and decision-makers at the office of emergency management.

Custom Administration Reporting (gTracker)

A reporting tool was needed that could indicate the accuracy of search results by tracking the number of clicks required by users to find their desired search results. The application should also capture the number of times other links and like filtering components are clicked. The report should have the ability to display a specific date range. The application is configured to allow multiple interfaces to utilize the service, and can provide statistics per interface or across all interfaces for a consolidated view of search user behavior metrics.

PathDroid

Android is the primary software platform for mobile, networked devices such as tablets and smartphones. These devices are increasingly used for safety-critical functions that require verification of correct and robust behavior of applications. Such software written for the Android operating system is hard to test because applications are inherently concurrent, applications are usually being driven by asynchronous user input and network events, the application model is not amenable to unit testing, and the availability of sources for many commercial applications is missing. Safety-critical applications require verification by means of systematic exploration of all possible software behaviors. Conventional testing does not guarantee sufficient coverage, especially for concurrent applications.

Enterprise Business Information System (EBIS) Data Warehouse Quality Inspector

A typical data warehouse may contain thousands of tables. Validating the data quality of all data warehouse content is an unmanageable and unmaintainable task if handled in an ad-hoc fashion. This software seeks to ensure that a data warehouse accurately reflects the contents of the business systems that feed it, in turn guaranteeing accuracy of business reports. Data anomalies can occur due to breaks in processes, unexpected changes to business rules, upgrades, unanticipated data relationships, or inadequate testing. Inspecting the data after each batch load for anomalous conditions allows IT to respond quickly to such issues, and to deliver a higher-quality product to end users.

Network Geolocation Technology

This system is difficult to spoof, and does not generate false positives.

A network geolocation technology (NGT) can be used to determine the physical location of a networked Internet user, as well as accurately determine if an Internet user is in fact in the metropolitan service area that the user claims as his/her location. NGT is based on the laws of physics, and operates independent of an IP address lookup or any other pre-existing user network address profiles.

Using Formal Methods for Engineering Embedded Systems

Between 1985 and 1987, a radiation therapy device called the Therac-25 was involved in at least six incidents in which the device delivered massive overdoses of radiation. The patients involved suffered radiation burns and symptoms of radiation poisoning. Three of those patients eventually died, all because of a latent software bug. A race condition had gone undetected. It was a test case no one had thought to define.
