Controlling the Spectrum and the Future of Battlefield Tech

Embedded computing is the name of the game in this week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry. First up, Roy Keeler (ADLINK) and I chat about how we can overcome processor speed bumps, the general rule of thumb when it comes to spectrum dominance, and the evolution (and future trajectory) of GPPs. In our second interview this week, Mike Slonosky (Curtiss-Wright) and I talk about the increased … Read More → "Controlling the Spectrum and the Future of Battlefield Tech"

Richard Feynman and Quantum Computing

Richard Feynman, probably the most colourful physicist of the twentieth century, as well as one of the most important, was born a hundred years ago, on May 11th 1918. In a long career, there were some significant highlights.  Before he was thirty, he was responsible for running the computing unit at Los Alamos, where rooms full of women working … Read More → "Richard Feynman and Quantum Computing"

Saving Private Fish Fry

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we’re headed into the world of common standards, common form factors, SOSA, and MORA. (Don’t worry, there are even more acronyms on the horizon!) First up, my first guest Rodger Hosking (Pentek) and I chat about the newest technologies in embedded software radio. We discuss how common standards and common form factors are pushing new initiatives in military and … Read More → "Saving Private Fish Fry"

Security Sea Change

Security takes center stage in this week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry. Nigel Forrester (Concurrent Technologies) joins us to discuss the benefits of a holistic approach to embedded security, the details of their Guardian Security platform, and the curious connection Concurrent Technologies Read More → "Security Sea Change"

Optics All Around: Light on Board and Waves in the Ground

This week we investigate embedded optical modules with Gerry Persaud from Reflex Photonics – The Light on Board Company. Gerry and I discuss the benefits of  their chip-sized embedded optical modules and why Reflex Photonics stands out in the optical module ecosystem. We also check out a research study at Stanford University that demonstrates how optical fiber cables embedded … Read More → "Optics All Around: Light on Board and Waves in the Ground"

RISC-V and The New Frontier of Microprocessors

What has RISC-V done for you lately? In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we chat with Rick O’Connor (executive director of the RISC-V Foundation) about the history of RISC-V, the evolution of the standards being developed within the foundation, and why Rick thinks that RISC-V is the most interesting thing to happen in the microprocessors in the last decade. … Read More → "RISC-V and The New Frontier of Microprocessors"

New Defense and Aerospace Products – Mouser and VicorIf you’re working on mil-standard systems and are worried about SWaP-C (and who isn’t?) you know that getting a reliable, off-the-shelf DC to DC converter and filter are critical to the success of your system. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kai Johnstad of Vicor about solving mil-standard COTS power problems. … Read More → "New Defense and Aerospace Products – Mouser and Vicor"
Altera Stratix 10 SecuritySecurity is a key issue in just about every system design today. And, in FPGA-based systems you need robust security features built into the FPGA itself. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Ryan Kenny of Altera discuss the new security features in Altera’s Stratix 10 FPGAs and how they help you address … Read More → "Altera Stratix 10 Security"
SystemVision® Multi-discipline System Verification DatasheetThe SystemVision multi-discipline collaboration environment lets you explore concepts, validate performance specifications, investigate architectural partitions, and integrate implementation-level details, all in an easy-to-use virtual prototyping environment. Focus on a single design domain, or combine multiple domains, for full-system verification.
Modernizing System DevelopmentAllowing disconnected development and waiting until the latest program stages to perform systems integration and connect all the pieces is a high risk situation, yet one all too common in today’s product realization process. Bringing domain expertise together as appropriate throughout a project’s development process is imperative for project success.  This paper explores a more … Read More → "Modernizing System Development"
New Approach to Manage Electrical ComplexityToday’s competitive and challenging environment, thought-leaders are recommending a shift to systems engineering. Using a systems engineering approach could help OEMs maintain product quality, reduce costs, manage change, and achieve time to market. This paper talks about applying systems engineering principles using the Capital tool suite to address these issues.
