The Role of Static Analysis in a Secure Software Development Lifecycle

by Bill Graham, GrammaTech, Inc.

When should static analysis be applied?” The answer to this question is fairly straightforward: “whenever code is being developed.” This however, is a simplification. The longer answer is “part of a structured and secure development process.”

Ensuring Access to the Right Equipment at the Right Time and at the Lowest Cost

By David Saeys, Managing Director, Electro Rent Europe

Creating a cost-effective plan that ensures the availability of the right test equipment at the right time requires collaboration and bottom-up planning between two groups that don’t always see eye to eye: testing and finance

Safe battery charging in wearables and other small systems

by Kanji Kerai, Dialog Semiconductor

To collect necessary data, wearables need to be worn almost constantly and they need to be capable of operating continuously for long periods. Smart home sensor nodes and other Internet of Things applications face similar demands. That raises the question of how to power these devices?
