Intro to Embedded Profiling and Performance Optimization

If you need to speed up computations on your NetBurner module but don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place. During my intern project developing a 1/8-scale autonomous vehicle, I hit a brick wall when computationally intensive tasks started to fail. Instead of accepting that I had reached the limit of the board’s performance, I decided to buckle down and managed to decrease the runtime of computationally intensive tasks by an order of magnitude. This article will discuss the simplest things we can do to measure and improve performance. The provided code is designed to run on a NetBurner module but techniques discussed can be applied to any embedded development project.

Warrior’s Guide to Embedded Debugging – Part I

There is nothing more frustrating than having a problem and feeling helpless while some oracle on the other end of a nebulous contact form decides your fate. In the ideal world you would be able to solve your own problems without ever needing outside help, right? Our goal at NetBurner is to make the product in such a way that you rarely need support; not because we don’t want to help you, but to get you farther, faster. We still have a way to go and that’s why we take pride in the quality of our support, blog posts and community forums to fill those remaining gaps.

Part II: WebSockets for Real-Time Web and IoT Applications – Controlling Your NetBurner with WebSockets Interface

In this article, we will make a WebSockets dashboard application that provides real-time monitoring AND control of a NetBurner Core Module from a web browser. Previously in Part 1, we discussed the benefits of using WebSockets and demonstrated how to make a WebSockets application to remotely monitor the state of DIP switches on a NetBurner Core Module Development Kit. Next, we will build on the same example to show how we can also control the NetBurner Dev Kit’s integrated LED array in real-time from a browser using WebSockets.
