Coming Back for Seconds

Design West 2012 Part Two

by Amelia Dalton

In this week's Fish Fry, I look into two ever-present themes at this year's Design West Expo: power and software. On the software side, I interview David Kleidermacher (Green Hills Software - CTO) about embedded security, virtualization, and even Green Hills's collaboration with Nintendo. On the power side, I chat with Infinite Power Solutions about energy harvesting and find out why they don't call themselves "Limited Power Solutions".

I have one more MAX V CPLD Development Kit courtesy of Altera to give away this week, but you'll have to listen to find out how to win. 


Embedded. FPGA. Power. Software.

In part two of my Design West 2012 coverage, I tackle the two tricky elements of embedded design: power and software. I dig into virtualization and embedded security with Green Hills CTO Dave Kleidermacher and I chat about energy harvesting and future of embedded power supplies with Infinite Power Solutions. What do you think the trickiest part of embedded design is?

Open Power Foundation Aims to Make PowerPC More Plentiful

by Jim Turley

Once upon a time, there were many little RISC processors frolicking in the deep green microprocessor forest. There was the jaunty little ARM. The bright little SPARC. The mighty little MIPS. The aristocratic little PowerPC. And so many others. They all played and laughed and had ever such a good time.

Then, one by one, the happy little RISC processors started disappearing. Were they gobbled up by the big, bad CISC processor that lurked in the woods? Did they cross over the Wheatstone Bridge and into another land? Or did they just get lost in the tall grass, wandering aimlessly until their mommies and daddies forgot about them? ...
