99 Problems but IO Ain’t One

Get ready my friends. We’re heading into the middle of the desert, we’re diving to the bottom of the sea, and we’re even going all the way into space. Why? Because we can. Because we have the right enclosure for our next electronic design. A lot of you out there are developing designs that need to go into the harshest of environments, … Read More → "99 Problems but IO Ain’t One"

What’s the Bandwidth of a FedEx Truck?

“The more storage you have, the more stuff you accumulate.” — Alexis Stewart

Something seems very wrong about this whole idea.

There I was, minding my own business, reading about new web services, and it was all about data containers, docking, network interfaces, transport, routing, and other sorts of esoteric new technologies. And then it mentioned that the “data container” was 45 feet long and … Read More → "What’s the Bandwidth of a FedEx Truck?"

DynamIQ Tension

“As a rule, a beautiful woman is a terrible disappointment.” – Carl Jung

You want the short version? Some future ARM processors will support 8-CPU clusters.

You want the longer version? “This redefines multicore. Designed from the ground up. Massive system performance uplift. 10x faster. 50x faster. Architecture for total computing. An industry inflection point. Accelerates AI adoption. Safer autonomous systems. For all markets … Read More → "DynamIQ Tension"

Data Center Duel Deux

It’s clear that programmable logic and FPGA technology will capture an increasing share of the value in conventional and cloud data-center deployments. While FPGAs have always been used in connectivity and storage, there is an ever-building push to have high-end FPGAs take over a crucial role in computation as well. FPGAs pack a potent combination of massive computational throughput, low latency, and power efficiency that is … Read More → "Data Center Duel Deux"

GPGPUs, Molecular Robots, and UAVs! Oh MY!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! This week’s episode of Fish Fry has absolutely nothing to do with Ireland or St. Patrick, but has everything to do with molecular robots programmed with DNA, general purpose computing on GPUs, and featherweight systems for unmanned aerial vehicles.  We start things off with a closer look at the creation of a new amoeba-like molecular robot by a team of researchers in … Read More → "GPGPUs, Molecular Robots, and UAVs! Oh MY!"

Between overdue books, too many “Quiet Please” signs to count, and trying to navigate the Dewey Decimal System, going to the library is never much fun.  The same feeling is often true when searching for technical documentation before, during, or after the desig...
