What’s a CVE ?

22nd Feb 2022, Limerick, Ireland – What’s a CVE ? No, nothing to do with a resume extradonaire …just another acronym I’m afraid and this time it stands for Common Vulnerability & Exposures. What ? Simply put, a CVE is a publicly known cybersecurity vulnerability in a particular piece of software. A cybersecurity vulnerability is a “weak-link” and depending on where it may be found, it can impact you or your organisations IT security and possibly leave you open to exploitation by cybercriminals…

Using Custom Instructions with the GDB Debugger…

17th Feb 2022, Limerick, Ireland – Custom instructions are typically used to move critical portions of an application implementation from software to the hardware domain with a resulting performance boost, power saving and code density improvement. It’s all about CPU cycles and doing more in less! Custom instructions typically require a new instruction mnemonic to invoke and you can think of this as an “API” to call the encapsulated hardware functionality…

“Open-source” Hardware Design…

14th Feb 2022, Limerick, Ireland. The OpenHW Group are taking open-source principles that have revolutionised the software industry and applying them to hardware design in the development of a family of RISC-V based microprocessor cores (“CORE-V”). We’re proud to be part of the group and as of now we are involved in the Software Development Toolchain and SDK for CORE-V. OpenHW is part of the Eclipse Foundation community and you can find more details here
