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"

Electromagnetic Domination

What has the electromagnetic spectrum done for you lately? I’m guessing not a lot. But it can. In this week’s Fish Fry, I sit down with Hayden Nelson (Abaco) and discuss the future of electronic warfare. Hayden reveals the what, where, and how of cognitive electronic warfare, how spectral allocation in wireless communication can be a battlefield game-changer, and why open standards are critical … Read More → "Electromagnetic Domination"

Standards Soup

With a dash of mini PCIe, a couple heaping spoonfuls of VPX and VNX and a whole lot of SBCs, Bill Ripley (Alligator Designs) and I are cooking up the perfect recipe for hybrid rugged computing. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, Bill and I discuss the role of standards in hybrid systems, the evolving role of COTs in ruggedized systems, and why Alligator … Read More → "Standards Soup"

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!"

Safety-Critical Systems

Security, particularly for the IoT, has been hogging the headlines recently, but safety and safety-critical applications are still a major topic of interest. February saw the 25th Safety-Critical Systems Seminar (SSS). It was organised by a group called the Safety-Critical Systems Club (SCSC) – the UK’s professional network and community for sharing knowledge about safety-critical systems, with membership from a wide range of disciplines including practicing engineers, … Read More → "Safety-Critical Systems"

Picking Up Bad Vibrations

It feels great to finish a printed circuit board (PCB) project, doesn’t it? By the time a project goes out the door, the design feels almost like a child you’ve raised. You’ve nurtured, guided, argued, questioned your own competence, and even fought. Then, at the end, you’ve finally settled into a nice rhythm of blissful acceptance where you realize you’ve done your … Read More → "Picking Up Bad Vibrations"

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.
Accelerating Open Source Security Using OpenCL & Altera FPGAsToday’s FPGAs offer interesting potential for accelerating performance- and power-critical operations such as security algorithms. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ryan Kenny of Altera about using FPGAs to accelerate open source security algorithms written in OpenCL. Click the link below for more information about how Altera FPGAs can accelerate open source … Read More → "Accelerating Open Source Security Using OpenCL & Altera FPGAs"
What is Design Security in a Mainstream SoC?Do you worry about security in your FPGA design? Are there bad guys out there trying to take advantage of security holes in your electronic designs? What can we do to stop them? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia chats with Tim Morin (Microsemi) about the practical aspects of security in mainstream SoC FPGAs – what … Read More → "What is Design Security in a Mainstream SoC?"
