Real Time Embedded Systems Debugging

CNET Members only.  Zoom. Networking from 6:30PM - 7 PM;  Meeting starts at 7:00 PM

Today there are thousands of applications for real time embedded systems from the multitude of computers in vehicles down to appliances like washing machines, microwave ovens and even toasters.

Designing and debugging these systems has become somewhat of an art as well as a science. This talk is about how to handle the complexity in these systems, including ways to effectively design and debug them. The talk will discuss issues affecting the hardware and software (firmware) and how to deal with problems that may arise, including testing.

This talk is somewhat a survey of techniques for designing and debugging real time embedded systems for efficacy, testing and maintainability.

Tom Maglione biography

2022 marks the 49th year for Tom working in Electrical Engineering roles. Starting as a Junior engineer in the evaluation department of Honeywell industrial controls at Fort Washington, PA, Tom received his BSEE from Penn State, followed a few years later with a BMusic from Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Later Tom attended the Advanced Study Program at MIT before joining the Intelligent Engineering Systems Lab in the MIT Civil Engineering Department. Shortly afterwards Tom was admitted to the MIT EECS department as a PhD candidate, working at the Media Lab designing and building PC boards for the Music and Cognition group there. Later Tom finished his Masters thesis and graduated with his SM in EECS from MIT, taking a leave of absence from the PhD program ever since.

Tom has spent most of his career performing consulting work and has built and designed about a dozen real time embedded systems, many still out in the field working to this day. Presently Tom continues his ten years consulting work for Covaris providing hardware, firmware and software system support for their instruments and research.
