Welcome to the fourth installment of Engineering Heroes, sponsored by Wind River, where we take a closer look at the lives of unsung heroes in the world of engineering whose work impacts uncountable lives across the globe. See the bottom of the article for additional content on Levi Zima and our other heroes.
Networking & 5G
In this fourth installment of our Engineering Heroes series, sponsored by Wind River, we honor Levi Zima, an RF Microwave Engineer. Levi was born in Oregon, spent several years of childhood in Wisconsin, and currently resides in Florida, just north of Orlando.
Software & OS
Welcome to the first installment of our Engineering Heroes series, where we recognize design engineers and developers who do amazing work that impacts countless lives around the world.
Alameda, California. Wind River released a no-fee professional-grade scanning tool to identify Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs). The Wind River Studio Linux Security Scanning Service is designed for the distinct requirements of embedded Linux environments indicating when a fix or patch is available for a given CVE.
On this episode of Embedded Insiders, Julie Robinson, Director of Product Management at Rockwell Automation, gives us an introduction of the company’s recently announced FactoryTalk Design Hub, a software hub designed to ease and accelerate cross collaboration and productivity for automation design teams.
Unless you’re a network engineer, you probably don’t think about how much energy the mobile network infrastructure that connects our smartphones and other gadgets consumes. But if you did, you’d be shocked. According to the International Energy Agency, global data transmission networks consumed 260-340 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity in 2021. That’s roughly the same amount of energy that England, the country, consumed in the same year (333.2 TWh).
On this episode of Embedded Insiders, Associate Editor, Tiera Oliver, is joined by Michel Chabroux, Senior Director of Product Management at Wind River Systems, to discuss the evolution of embedded and safety-critical operating systems, and how containers and newer programming languages like Rust are affecting that transformation.
