And Stellaris Makes Four: But TI's expanding CPU line may work against it
Design How-To  
7/1/2009   Post a comment
With the purchase of Luminary Micro and its Stellaris family of Cortex-M3 MCUs, Texas Instruments now has four distinct CPU architectures and is the only company with a CPU/DSP continuum. However, while it's an increasingly formidable MCU player, the incompatibility of these four CPU lines may be a problem.
Impulse Response: Massively parallel chips can lead to sticky software
Design How-To  
5/20/2009   Post a comment
Multicore and massively parallel chips are gaining momentum in embedded applications, and their increasing market acceptance is likely to have some interesting consequences. One of these, I believe, may be that companies that make massively parallel chips and tools—and their customers—will have to grapple with "stickier" software.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
