Unlock the value of embedded security IP to build secure IoT products at scale

Introduction IoT product development crosses several domains of expertise from embedded design to communication protocols and cloud computing. Because of this complexity “end-to-end” or “edge-to-cloud” IoT security is becoming a challenging concept in the industry. Edge in many cases refers to the device as a single element in the edge-to-cloud chain. But the device must […]

How to perform secondary processor over-the-air updates with FreeRTOS

Many embedded architectures include a connectivity processor connected to one or more secondary processors that perform business logic. The ability to perform secondary processor over-the-air (OTA) updates is just as critical as updating the connectivity processor. This is because it allows for low-cost patching of bugs and security vulnerabilities as well as delivering new features […]
