Embedded Software: The Tricky Parts
Date: Tuesday, October 11, 2016
Embedded software is not like other software; working close to the hardware has a special set of challenges. Elecia will provide an overview of the more difficult areas in embedded software including processor profiling, map files, bootloaders, and debugging remotely. This is framed as a project that starts with off the shelf dev boards using sample software and evolves into custom hardware running optimized software.
Elecia has worked on DNA scanners, inertial measurement units for airplanes and race cars, toys for preschoolers, a gunshot location system for catching criminals, and assorted other medical and consumer devices. She is the founder of Logical Elegance, an embedded systems consulting company in California.
A graduate of Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, CA, Elecia enjoys sharing her passion for science, engineering and interesting gizmos, particularly how these things can make the world a better place.
