iSYSTEM Update #1/2020
Availability of iSYSTEM world-wide: Since a couple of weeks, the iSYSTEM Team mainly works from home (Mobile Office). All your contacts can be reached as usual. If you need more iSYSTEM Technology (Software and BlueBoxes) for your home office, do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to equip you at home
iSYSTEM's FAQ Knowledge Base and more - support.isystem.com
Since a couple of weeks, iSYSTEM hosts a Knowledge Base. It covers a number of use cases and is continuously growing. The growth of use cases and challenges we describe here, depends especially on your feedback. If you experienced use cases and challenges during your daily work with iSYSTEM tools, that solved an issue within your software, please let us know and we share this experience with the iSYSTEM user community.
In March we started a series of webinars and publish the recorded ones on iSYSTEM Webinar Playlist.
April 1st - Continuous Integration using Jenkins and iSYSTEM Tools
One of the topics that generates most interest during discussions with customers currently is that of Continuous Integration (CI for short). With it, a single server can offload the development team from much of the time-consuming building and testing of everything from individual embedded software modules through to complete projects with testing on a hardware-in-the-loop system (HIL). We're not going into all the details in this webinar, rather we will give the high-level overview of what a CI does and what you need to consider integrating iSYSTEM development and test tools in such a process.There are several different CI platforms available now, but the ones most often mentioned to us to date have been Jenkins, Hudson (the precursor to Jenkins) and Bamboo. We have been working with and testing Jenkins together with testIDEA and our Python scripting tool isystem.connect, so it will be our webinar focus here. However, the principles, and sometimes even the steps, discussed here apply equally to other CI platforms too.
At iSYSTEM, we realize that embedded systems development requires more than just the insights of a microcontroller. Developers need a holistic view, because events inside a microcontroller and on a network are interrelated. With the iC5700 platform concept and its corresponding components, iSYSTEM recognizes this trend and its importance.
iSYSTEM's solution can correlate the network and microcontroller activity and show the sequence of all events in a single view. Real-time logic can also react to observed events. For example, stopping the microcontroller when a specific network message occurs.
