14 March 2014 Live Chat -- Lethal Software Defects
Max The Magnificent   3/13/2014 12:39:58 PM
NO RATINGS
Our next live online chat will commence on Friday 14 March 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (1:00 p.m. Eastern Time). You'll have to work out your local time from these clues (you can always use this handy-dandy Time Zone Converter).

Your host will be Max Maxfield, and our guest will be Michael Barr, CTO and Co-Founder of the Barr Group. As Michael says: "Embedded software can be dangerous, even lethal." In this week's live online chat, Michael will be available to answer questions on such topics as Therac-25 (a radiation therapy medical device that massively over-dosed 6 patients from 1985-87), the Patriot missile defense system's deadly failure to intercept a Scud on February 25, 1991, and Toyota's issues with unintended acceleration.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
