Embedded Software, TÜV Certification, and 64 bits
In this week’s Fish Fry, we’re taking on safety, security, and the embedded design software in between. Michael May (Express Logic) and I start things off with an in-depth discussion about the ongoing design-in battle between 32 and 64 bit processors and where ThreadX RTOS fits into the embedded ecosystem. Keeping with this week’s embedded software theme, I also chat with Jim McElroy (LDRA) about what we need to do when our designs must adhere to a security-critical standard, why TÜV Certification is so important, and what it's like to captain a whale watching boat.

Intelligent vision systems represent some of today's biggest embedded design challenges. The enormous processing power required combined with small energy budgets rules out most conventional applications processors. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Dennis Crespo from Cadence Design Systems about the new Tensilica Vision P5 processors - designed specifically to meet the needs of embedded vision applications.
Emulation is critical in the development of just about every complex IC these days, but most emulation systems are burdened with proprietary standards and form factors that don't scale well. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton talks with Frank Schirrmeister of Cadence Design Systems about the new Palladium Z1 datacenter-class emulation system, which was designed with the capacity and scalability required for today's most challenging designs.
High speed analog signals pose special challenges for analog-to-digital conversion (ADC). Applications like software-defined radio, radar, instrumentation, and high-speed wireless require ADC that is high-performance, high-accuracy, and low power. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Trent Butcher of Microchip Technology about solving the issues of high-speed ADC.
For industrial-grade applications, consumer-style connectors just don't cut it. You'd never use RJ45 where you really care about ruggedness or reliability. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Tom Wess of TE Connectivity about M8 and M12 high-reliability connectivity solutions that will keep your system operating smoothly under harsh conditions.
Even though the newest, fastest standards get all the press, most of the work in the world is being done by standards like 2.5G Ethernet. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Juwayriyah Hussain of Altera about Altera's IP for 2.5G Ethernet. It'll have you up and running with Ethernet on your next design in no time.
Have you been wanting to try FPGA design? Were FPGA development boards and tools always too expensive and difficult to use? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Darren Zacher and Jim Burnham of Xilinx about ARTY, a new, easy-to-use $99 FPGA-based embedded development kit from Xilinx.
