- 2012 to 2012
I designed a program in Visual Studio 2010 that analyzes graphics images and converts them into new data structures in C for more optimal memory use and real time execution speed for an embedded target's native hardware capability. The programming agent's output program is then compiled with embedded target tool chain yielding speed in integrating new content into the embedded target. Another Visual Studio c/c++ utility allowed an embedded target processor to generate html reports with live system settings & instrumentation values presented by an embedded http server over Ethernet or 4G cellular.
