FPGA Debug in the Modern World Blog 4/11/2016 Post a comment A versatile, iterative, and incremental debug methodology allows FPGA designers to deliver debugged designs quickly and easily ensuring design integrity and robustness.
The Tough World of Automotive Power Blog 4/6/2016 Post a comment Automobiles are evolving from being almost exclusively mechanical to becoming self-propelled embedded systems. The amount of computing power inside the car is steadily increasing, with some of the biggest improvements to processor horsepower moving into the dashboard and the infotainment systems it contains.
CEO Interview: Andes' Cores For IoT Suit Europe Blog 3/31/2016 1 comment EE Times Europe interviewed Frankwell Jyh-Ming Lin, CEO of Andes Technology Corp. (Hsinchu, Taiwan), a licensor of a range of 32bit processor cores as intellectual property (IP), and asked how the company is planning to address the European market.
ReRAMs: Forming Scaling and Quantized Conductance Blog 3/30/2016 7 comments An IMEC team have formed and characterized the electrical conductance and topology of some of the smallest ReRAM filaments ever reported. While they have proved the devices still operate with an active volume of that size, it's not all good news.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
