VSPs spur on-time delivery of embedded automotive systems software: Part 2 Design How-To 10/24/2006 Post a comment Virtual systems prototypes offer high-performance simulation models that allow engineers to fine tune systems designs using realistic software loads without the need for expensive hardware design. Part 2 covers designing in quality, rather than testing for quality, with applicability to single unit and distributed controller platforms.
Open Source Embedded Asterisk-based PBX Design How-To 10/4/2006 3 comments Building an embedded IP-PBX represents a significant paradigm shift from existing open source PBX designs that typically use PCI cards on x86 platforms. Until recently, current micro controllers
(e.g. those in the 200MHz ARM & MIPs class) typically lack the DSP
horsepower for multiple channels of speech compression or echo
cancellation that is required for analog line interfaces. The Analog
Device Blackfin chip has changed all this......
