Selecting PLLs for ASIC Applications requires tradeoffs
News & Analysis  
9/25/2003   Post a comment
PLLs, like many other analog IP macros, come with many features and specifications. Selecting the correct PLL early in the design can help the design team make tradeoffs when they are less costly, improve the integration quality of the PLL, and avoid surprises close to tapeout. From the September PA magazine folio, a True Circuits expert gives this assessment of what you should look for.
VXS: Switched Serial Gigabit Fabric for VMEbus
Design How-To  
9/23/2003   Post a comment
The VMEbus, well into a third decade of widespread deployment, continues as the dominant bus structure for high-performance embedded systems. In an industry characterized by a steady succession of new device offerings with speed and density increases every few months, VMEbus has retained this leadership position not simply because it was based on a sound electrical and mechanical architecture. Pentek's Rodger hosking introduces VXS and reviews some basics of switched fabrics.

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.
