Closer Look: Smoking gun in the DRAM market? Blog 6/25/2002 Post a comment For all the headlined DRAM legal eruptions last week, the memory market is unlikely to be affected. The volatile DRAM prices will be far more swayed by the old demand-and-supply cycles than any federal investigations.
Closer Look: AMD in danger of falling behind Intel in performance race Blog 6/5/2002 Post a comment Despite current marketing hype, Advanced Micro Devices next technology thrust against arch-rival Intel Corp. comes late this year. That's when a not-yet-introduced Athlon version of the 32-/64-bit Hammer family debuts and the 512KB L2 cache Athlon, code-named Barton, is unveiled.
In the meantime, AMD is sticking doggedly to its Athlon core design with virtually no changes. The firm next Monday will unveil its new 130-nanometer (0.13-micron) node Athlon XP processor, but except for shrinking th
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.
