Webcast: Dual-PAN Feature to Enable the Internet of Things

by Freescale SemiconductorDec 05, 2014

This webinar will take a deep dive into one of the main challenges of the Internet of Things: There are multiple wireless protocols which make it difficult to standardize a single language for all the requirements across markets. It will present common use cases where talking different wireless protocols is a key requirement.

The dual-PAN feature allows a single radio to participate in two 802.15.4 based networks simultaneously. We will technically examine the Dual-PAN feature as key solution to provide translator between these different worlds.

What registrants will learn:

  • Multi-protocol challenges in the Internet of Things era.
  • Dual-PAN feature: Single radio participating in two networks with robust protocol specifications.
  • Freescale Dual-PAN offering translates into a cost efficient design.

Whitepaper: Linux as a Real-Time Operating System

by Freescale SemiconductorJan 01, 2008

Linux is rapidly evolving to include more and more features that have explicit value to the embedded developer. Key enhancements include two very high-performance real-time enhancement patches to the Linux kernel, which perform identically for all practical purposes. As a result of this performance, the developer’s choice regarding which should be implemented can be based on independent criteria including the ability to update/modify existing device drivers for compatibility with the real-time implementation, and the availability of each real-time technique for the selected architecture and kernel version.
