News & Analysis  
5/10/2002   Post a comment
Combine the in-system reprogramming capabilities of flash memory with the "plug and play" ease-of-use of USB in a microprocessor? Mitsubishi's Chris Brandt and Jim Page discuss the cost- and space-saving advantages of such a technology marriage.
Flash Storage Alternatives for the Low-Pin-Count (LPC) Bus
News & Analysis  
5/3/2002   Post a comment
Sharon Dagan of M-Systems discusses trends in the embedded market that have brought about the decline of the ISA bus and its replacement by the Low Pin Count (LPC) bus. Ms. Dagan also reviews LPC bus benefits, various storage solutions supporting the LPC bus, and a case study showing migration from ISA to LPC bus on a thin-client platform.

SAN JOSE -- MIPS Technologies Inc. announced it has licensed the company's 32-bit RISC instruction set architecture to fabless startup Fulcrum Microsystems Inc. in Calabasas Hills, Calif., which plans to use the technology to develop a high-performance clockless processor for wireline communications.
TI teams with nearby Microtune to jointly pursue cable modem applications
News & Analysis  
5/1/2002   Post a comment
DALLAS -- Texas Instruments Inc. here and six-year-old Microtune Inc. in the Dallas suburb of Plano are teaming up for the first time to jointly develop and offer chip set solutions for baseband communications applications using data over cable service interface specification (known as "DOCSIS").

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
