I can't believe that the first day of ARM TechCon is already drawing to a close! IoT has been at the forefront of a lot of conversations here in Santa Clara, so there has naturally been a lot of exciting discussion about the need to build better and more secure systems. Here are some of my highlights from the day…


Simon Segars discusses the last 12 months


The day started with the keynotes and simonsegars (ARM CEO) was the first to take to the stage. Simon took the opportunity to talk about the growth we’ve seen over the last 12 months. Noting that ARM technology has moved into a lot of new markets (including everything from supercomputers right down to tiny IoT sensors). The keynote was a great opportunity to look at the last year and some of the key things that have happened, including the timely topic of SoftBank’s acquisition of ARM. Simon invited Masayoshi Son (SoftBank founder) onto the stage to talk about SoftBank’s commitment to the ARM ecosystem.


Masayoshi Son discusses his vision for secure IoT products

WhatsApp Image 2016-10-25 at 17.51.58.jpegThere have been a lot of questions about the changes ARM will go through as a result of the SoftBank acquisition and Masa wanted to take the opportunity to reassure the audience. In fact, one of Masayoshi's first lines was “Don’t worry, I’m going to make everyone happier”.


Masayoshi delivered a fantastic keynote looking at the evolution of ‘sensors’. He started by asking the audience if anyone knew which was the first living thing on Earth to have eyes. For those of you who are curious, it was the Trilobite! Masayoshi showed ARM TechCon attendees that the ability to see (and sense) was key to survival. He related the ability to sense to the IoT market. Observing that the key to the success and evolution of the IoT space, is the ability to sense. Successful IoT products will need to be able to replicate the human senses (see, hear, touch and taste) to recognise information, learn and then make changes on their environment.

Security is key to IoT and he suggested that it was more important than reducing chip cost or doubling clock speeds. He cited the example of the connected car and said that the majority of cars today had little or no security.


Masayoshi concluded his presentation by reiterating that the center of gravity had moved from mobile to IoT and that in the near future, we will have 1 trillion chips plus super intelligence and this will enable the singularity.


He also announced a $100B IoT fund he was putting in place to help accelerate and reach this goal. Pointing out that the Cambrian explosion of IoT is happening whether we like it or not, so it’s important to equip and secure ourselves for this new era in technology. “Technology will be a great companion for our happiness”.


Mike Muller on healthcare and new ARM products


WhatsApp Image 2016-10-25 at 18.37.15.jpeg

mikemuller ARM CTO, took to the stage to talk about healthcare and the innovation happening in this space. He focussed in on the research taking place, which uses smell to detect various illnesses, including prostate and lung cancer. He also used more trivial examples, including some work carried out by Unilever, which used disposable sensors to test odours under the ARM and then dispensed extra deodorant if it was needed.


Mike pointed out that we are still in the early stages of IoT, equating the IoT space to the mobile phone market, remarking that we are still in the ‘feature phone’ era and we need to move to the smartphone era. He backed up Masa’s thoughts on security, stating that for the revolution to happen, we need to be able to trust the system and implement security throughout the products. He also touched on privacy and that both were needed for IoT to succeed. Consumers need to trust the technology and privacy is a key building block in this trust.



The most exciting part of Mike’s talk was the announcement of a whole new suite of products, which will revolutionise the production of IoT chips. The products include two new ARM® Cortex®-M processors (Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33), a new IoT subsystem SSE-200 with ARM CoreLink™ SIE-200 system IP, ARM Cordio® radio IP, ARM mbed™ Cloud and ARM Artisan® IoT POP™ IP.


New ARM Technologies for a More Secure IoT


1abd6e95-a28c-4d70-9585-26a0c00acbcf.jpegFollowing the product announcement from Mike Muller, ARM’s mayanksharma (SIE-200 Product Manager) and Mike Eftimakis aka ftbug (SSE-200 Product Manager) delivered a technical session on their new products. The new products were hot off the press and many people showed up to learn more about the new System IP offerings from ARM. The session looked at the different security types (lifecycle, device and communication) and how it’s everybody’s responsibility to ensure security is integrated properly in a system. Mayank showed how SIE-200 extends security beyond the processor and brings TrustZone security to the rest of the system.


Mike showed how there are now loads of IoT building blocks on the market and how integrating these together takes considerable effort. In order to help our partners to configure the best IoT products, we’ve introduced the CoreLink SSE-200 subsystem (which assembles many pieces of ARM IP together).


During the talk, Mike reviewed some of the key benefits of using the new SSE-200 subsystem including: accelerating your time to market, reducing risk, minimising the effort required to get your system up and running, plus the ability to configure the product to your needs.  He cited that “Time spent stitching things together is time lost” and that using the subsystem would enable partners focus their valuable resource on the key differentiating part of their design.


We’re looking forward to the second day of ARM TechCon tomorrow! If you'd like to see what we have in store, check out my blog post which covers the system IP schedule, see you there!

  • Extended operating temperature grade (-40°C to +105°C)
  • Small form-factor (9.5 mm × 15.4 mm × 1.80 mm with shield)


The module is built to reduce your design cycle time with:


To get started with the module:

  1. Buy a BLE Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-042-BLE-A)
  2. Buy a EZ-BLE™ PSoC XT/XR Evaluation Board (CYBLE-224110-EVAL)
  3. Download the free PSoC Creator 4.0 IDE
  4. Read the Getting Started with EZ-BLE™ Module application note

Developing for the embedded world is a really interesting challenge, as any object may become part of the Internet of Things (IoT). Even though you have “only” few dollars to put in your “Thing” to make it smart, you can still manage to run multiple IoT libraries on it. Using processors like the ARM Cortex-M also enables you to reduce your device’s power consumption and extend your device’s precious battery lifetime.


For my latest demo, I worked on a connected washing machine for both ARM Cortex-M and ARM Cortex-A boards. It could communicate using Bluetooth, MQTT, Z-Wave and LWM2M.

I managed to get many protocols running on the same ARM processor (ARM Cortex-M and Cortex-A), connecting the main board to two servers on a PC, two other ARM microcontroller boards (ARM Cortex-M0+, ARM Cortex-M4) and a couple of hardware elements (Z-Wave lights and the actual washing machine toy).


Thanks to MicroEJ, my main washing machine application is small, efficient and maintainable with elegant architecture choices, appealing with different GUI skins, internationalized with multiple languages, and portable so it can be reused on a wide range of hardware platforms.

A full description about this demo was featured in Eclipse Edje + Eclipse IoT: Towards a full IoT Stack for Microcontrollers.

As you may already know, PSoC Creator 4.0 is available for download on the Cypress website. There are some significant new features in this release including:

The big change is the addition of all the FM0+ MCU devices. You can now pick any of those devices when creating projects and use components to configure the peripherals, just like you are used to with PSoC. This makes development so much easier because the tool always brings in the required driver code (from the Peripheral Driver Library v2.1.0), generates correct configuration data, and uses Guided Pin Selection to ensure you map signals to legal pins.

FM0+ Devices in New Project dialog

Another nice feature is the ability to create and use your own project templates. If you ever find that you re-create the same base schematic (and resources and source code) for multiple projects you can save all that time by saving the project as a User Template. Then, when it’s time to create the next project you simply select that template and all your work gets automatically added to the new design. Best of all, it includes your design-wide resources setup and source code as well, so it can really save you time.

My Templates in New Project dialog

Our BLE module business is really taking off and we got feedback that it is not easy to find those part numbers when they are mixed in with all the devices. So we have added a Module selection feature to the New Project dialog. Now, to create a module project, just select that radio button and pick the module you’re using.

PRoC and PSoC BLE Modules in New Project dialog

We all enjoy designing with the schematic editor but sometimes it would be useful to be able to compare files, just so we can keep track of what changed. That’s tricky with a binary file format so we added a project property (Project->Properties…) to ask the tool to save a text-based version of the schematic alongside the CYSCH file. The format is XML and you can use your favorite “diff” utility to see what is different between two designs, or two versions of the same design. In fact we save a pair of files – one for the semantics and one for the visual features of the design – so you can compare the functional and cosmetic differences independently of each other.

Eclipse and command-line lovers will be happy to hear that we added an option to Export to Makefile. This feature generates a makefile that builds the whole project from source. It is a great way to implement automated builds and test environments. And some of you just love the command line…

Export to Makefile from PSoC Creator


Our Applications team (a.k.a. “the boffins”) recently figured out a way to use the CapSense block as an ADC. So we created a component for the devices that can support it. With the component you can create a multi-channel ADC, or set up CapSense widgets the way you usually do, or even both at the same time. Try doing that with a fixed-function MCU!

Regular Start Page readers will have noticed that we are discontinuing support for Windows XP and Windows Vista next year. PSoC Creator 4.0 (and all updates we make to it) will continue to support those platforms but the next major software release will not. Note that PSoC Programmer shall continue to support those OS.

Another “policy change” is that we are dropping the terminology for Device Packs, Component Packs, and Service Packs. We found that this was very confusing because you could not always be certain that you had the latest software installed. From now on, we shall still make those releases but they will simply be called “Updates”. The bigger the update number, the newer the software. Simple right?

As usual, we’ve also made many quality improvements and minor enhancements. I strongly encourage you to install PSoC Creator 4.0.  You don’t even have to uninstall other versions of PSoC Creator to use this exciting new tool.  You can find more information, including the complete Release Notes, on thePSoC Creator product page.

We only touched upon the new features in this post. Over the next few weeks we’ll publish more articles, in which we shall highlight specific features and go into a little more detail.

How to add SPI device on AM335X

Posted by crown Oct 13, 2016

As we know, we frequently utilize SPI devices on the embedded boards, however, many development boards have no SPI devices, as a result, there is no registration information of SPI devices  in it's kernel, you may have no ideas for adding SPI devices if you are not familiar with the kernel.

Don't worry, here, we take MYD-AM335X development board as an example to indicate the way to add SPI flash on the board.


1. First, we need spidev, and we need to add it to the kernel, running it under the root catalog of Linux kernel original code.



make ARCH=arm menuconfig



Choose it in sequence:


Attention: above should all be choosed.


2. Add pin configuration of SPI on arch/arm/mach-omap2/board-am335xevm.c file.










/* Module pin for SPI, JBO */


static struct pinmux_config spi_pin_mux[] = {

    {"mcasp0_aclkx.spi1_sclk", OMAP_MUX_MODE3 | AM33XX_PULL_ENBL | AM33XX_INPUT_EN },

    {"mcasp0_fsx.spi1_d0", OMAP_MUX_MODE3 | AM33XX_PULL_ENBL | AM33XX_PULL_UP | AM33XX_INPUT_EN},

    {"mcasp0_axr0.spi1_d1", OMAP_MUX_MODE3 | AM33XX_PULL_ENBL | AM33XX_INPUT_EN},

    {"mcasp0_ahclkr.spi1_cs0", OMAP_MUX_MODE3 | AM33XX_PULL_ENBL | AM33XX_PULL_UP | AM33XX_INPUT_EN},

    {NULL, 0},



3. Add SPI devices and registration function






















/* Spi slave device, JBO */


static struct spi_board_info am335x_spi1_slave_info[] = {


        .modalias      = "spidev", // to match spidev drive

        .max_speed_hz  = 1000000, // maximal speed

        .bus_num       = 2, // indicate the device is on spi1

        .chip_select   = 0, //indicate it uses spi1_cs0




/* Setup SPI, JBO */

static void spi_init(int evm_id, int profile)


    /* Configure SPI */








4. Add the function call on device initialization list, comment out the MCASP function, as follow









static struct evm_dev_cfg myd_am335x_dev_cfg[] = {


    // ..............

    //{mcasp0_init,   DEV_ON_BASEBOARD, PROFILE_ALL},                                                                               

    {spi_init,      DEV_ON_BASEBOARD, PROFILE_ALL},

    // ..............

    {NULL, 0, 0},



5. recompile the kernel, you could find spidev 2.0 device node under the /dev/ catalog after you start up the board by this kernel.

7 steps to make you quickly start MYIR Z-turn Board:

How to set up QT compiling environment for a single board computer

How to set up QT compiling environment for a single board computer? Here we take Forlinx



single board computer for example.

Generally, a complete QT compiling environment in Forlinx single board computer cosists of



cross compiler installation and settings, tslib porting, qt porting and qtcreator



installation four parts.Let's learn about it step by step.

1. To install and configure a cross compiler

Users just need extract the compiler pack provided by Forlinx to the appointed path.

The cross compiler has two parts, arm-linux-gcc -v is for kernel compiling and arm-



2009q3.tar.bz2 is for QT compiling. Pls notice that arm-2009q3.tar.bz2 provided by Forlinx



should be 261.9M, if it's smaller than this, pls download a new one from Forlinx.

2.To port TSLIB

Someone may think that it's no need to port tslib if do not touching function, but pls



notice that without tslib, it may occur errors when compiling QT.So it's better for you to



port it no matter whether you need touching function.

Someone may fail to port it or get errors during installation, thus Forlinx provides a



compiled tslib pack named as tslib-sdk.tar.bz2 and users just need extract it to



/usr/local/arm directly.

note: tslib-1.4.tar.bz2 is a pack for source code, and tslib-sdk.tar.bz2 is the compiled



tslib pack.

3. To port QT

Forlinx provides compiled QT to their users. You just need extract qt4.8.5-sdk.tar.bz2  to



/usr/local/arm/, renamed the compiled qmake in /usr/local/arm/qt4.8.5/bin as arm-qmake, and



then copy it to /usr/bin

# cd /usr/local/arm/qt4.8.5/bin

# cp qmake /usr/bin/arm-qmake

# arm-qmake -v

QMake version 2.01a

Using Qt version 4.8.5 in /usr/local/arm/qt4.8.5/lib

Note: qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.5.tar.bz2 is the QT source code pack, and qt4.8.5-



sdk.tar.bz2 is the compiled QT pack

4. to install qtcreator

Execute below command in Ubuntu

#apt-get install qtcreator

after installation, pls input below command in hyper terminal to open QT creator


Click as QT Creator-> Tools-> Options and select Build & Run, then click Tools Chains,



click Add to get GCCE, single click Compiler path Browse to add cross compiler



(/usr/local/arm/arm-2009q3/bin/arm-linux-g++) path.

Click Add to get /usr/local/arm/qt4.8.5/bin/qmake and then click Apply to finish




At last port the compiled binary file to the board to run. (eg. the generated file is F11)

users just need copy F11 to SD or TF card, and insert the card to board to run

#vi /etc/init.d/

in, there is the executable binary file Matrix_gui, users just need rename it



accordingly and copy the executable file to /forlinx/qt/bin, then restart the board to get



QT interface.

I hope to see you at ARM TechCon 2016!

The 2016 ARM Student Design Challenge was launched in Bengaluru, India, on 10th September as part of the 22nd Annual International Conference on Advanced Computing and Communication. Echoing the industry push for innovation in the automotive space as part of the Internet of Things phenomenon, the 2016 Challenge focuses on the theme of smart transport systems.


The Challenge began with a tutorial on automotive applications. The target micro-controller platform was the low-cost (~ US $30) ARM Cortex-M0+ based FRDM KEAZ from NXP. The tutorial explored applications relevant to the automotive industry, so that the participating students could begin thinking about the implementation of their ideas.

Following the tutorial, N. Jayaram, Vice-President for R&D of TVS Motor Company presented an invited talk on high-level system development, from both a student's and an entrepreneur's perspective. He used testing and implementation of an antilock braking system in the two-wheeler (scooter) industry as an example. Later, there were two keynotes from ARM: the first was a high-level overview of the evolution of the ARM Architecture and the lessons learnt on the way by Manjunath K. Bogadi, Principal Engineer in the Architecture Compliance Team. The second was on the new frontiers of semiconductor growth, describing how current automotive markets are being propelled by intelligent subsystems evolving as a result of the thinking that has gone into the Internet of Things (IoT) space, by Ajay Joshi  head of the CPU benchmarking team in ARM's CPU product group.




The 2016 Challenge set some records: 129 student teams qualified in the initial round, from over 300 applications received. The shortlisted teams were classified under the following categories: Smart Connectivity, Smart Infrastructure, Smart Vehicle Aggregation, Vehicle Instrumentation and Vehicle technology. Importantly, the challenge caught the eye of industry as well as academia: the jury panel included a healthy mix of experts from academia, original equipment manufacturers and automotive manufacturers.




For the next phase, twenty-one top teams in each of the Northern and Southern Indian zones (total forty two selected teams) will compete in two separate events. These events will be held at National Institute of Technology (NIT) Nagpur on 17th December (North) and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras on 23rd December (South). The finalists from these events will pitch their project prototypes to a panel of judges at the finals to be hosted in March 2017 by TVS Motor Company at their Institute for Quality Leadership (IQL) facility in Hosur, Tamil Nadu.
