The Internet revolution has connected billions of PCs. There is now a second revolution in Internet connectivity. The Internet-of-Things (IoT) is happening all around us. A wave of billions and billions of devices are being connected. Devices, as simple as a light bulb and as complex as a jet engine, become more manageable once they have become connected devices. By becoming connected, devices can be controlled from a distance. Their settings… read more…
Posted by Guest Partner Jim Trudeau, Senior Solutions Technical Marketer, Freescale 10 April 2012Once upon a time a man named Tim Berners-Lee invented the World-Wide Web. Actually, what he suggested was the Hypertext Transfer Protocol. Just 22 years ago, he established the first link between a computer and a server via http.

Without the internet, there would be no Web.
Based on his brilliant concept and the enabling technology of the Internet, the world passed through a kind of singularity. It was a technical singularity that so remade the world… read more…

Qt-based MQX Motomic ?Butterfly browser
Motomic’s ?Butterfly browser, the first browser that operates on the Freescale MQX operating system, browses, parses and renders HTML/CSS content. This extensible solution was specifically designed to support Kinetis MCUs and other small-footprint MQX processors, allowing you to pull pages and post from a central server. It runs on as little as 256k memory.

Ever notice how embedded devices these days are much more sophisticated? Whether they are part of consumer electronics, mobile gadgets, or specialized equipment in the medical field, embedded systms have much greater capability than their predecessors of even a few years ago. Much of this change is due to powerful system-on-chip parts that have 32=bit microcontroller units (MCUs), analog-to-digital convertors (ADCs) and device interfaces, such as USB and Ethernet, all integrated onto one chip.
