Handset OEMs typically differentiate their products by increasing the number of features. While this usually is a good thing, there is a downside--more features makes the phone more difficult to use.
Programming heterogeneous multiprocessors
Design How-To  
8/24/2006   Post a comment
In this article, we examine how to program a heterogeneous multiprocessor (such as TI's DaVinci) based on the proven method of the Remote Procedure Call (RPC). We examine how this method addresses numerous programming challenges. We also explain how the RPC method introduces some pitfalls, and show how they may be avoided.

Able to provide physicians with an internal view of a patient's digestive path, Given Imaging Ltd.'s PillCam is an ingestible diagnostic tool that provides images of the small intestine without invasive surgery or probes.

BOM shrinks handset costs
Teardown  
8/14/2006   Post a comment
Reducing the handset bill of materials can be a chip designer's nightmare, involving further integration of the various radio, baseband and audio functions to reduce chip count. By comparing the silicon solutions developed by Infineon for the Panasonic EB-MX6 handset and the new PMB7870 E- GOLDradio, one can see the cost savings and system simplification achievable with the more highly integrated solution. This article will also review some key aspects of the PMB7870 E-GOLDradio.

Excerpted from Deploying IPv6 Networks, Chapter 2--An IPv6 Refresher, Part IV builds on Parts I-III and delivers a complete refresher on Internet Control Message Protcol (ICMP) for IPv6. This is a multi-part series on Network Systems DesignLine.
Platform design for motor controls enables efficient buildings
Design How-To  
8/2/2006   Post a comment
The transfer of heat from inside the room to the outside air requires electrical energy to drive the compressor and fan motors. Old-time controls yield to electronic motor controls, which can implement complex algorithms and control strategies.
