Reliable Real-Time Performance in Windows NT News & Analysis 12/1/1997 Post a comment Hard as it may seem to fathom, Windows NT is being considered for many of the next generation embedded systems, particularly in the telecommunications field. Though NT has many features that make it an appropriate operating system for these applications, it also has some serious limitations such as the lack of determinism. This article addresses many of the limitations and shows at least what Radisys is proposing as fixes.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
