Structured ASICs are cool! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 10/17/2005 Post a comment In addition to CPLDs, FPGAs, FPAAs, FPNAs, and programmable processors, Programmable Logic Designline is also going to cover Structured ASICs.
Microchip’s DSP PICs: Whatever next? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 10/14/2005 Post a comment You can only imagine my surprise to hear that those clever little rapscallions at Microchip are now selling 16-bit PIC microcontrollers with DSP-centric functionality!
Who is that masked man? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 10/12/2005 Post a comment I’m currently bouncing off the walls with excitement, because this is my first day to officially take the reins as the editor of this mega-cool site.
Xilinx FPGA-powered Ghostrider competes in DARPA Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 10/7/2005 Post a comment I love zoomy applications--and this one is literally one of the zoomiest I've seen. Xilinx Spartan-3 and Virtex-II Pro FPGAs are at the heart of an autonomous vehicle's vision algorithm, allowing the vehicle to 'see' its surroundings, even in adverse conditions.
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.
