High Speed Wizardry and a Steaming Cauldron of VPX Fixins

Hoodoo Rituals for New Technology Implementation

by Amelia Dalton

This week’s Fish Fry is a virtual bubbling cauldron of hoodoo rituals, VPX goodness, and bat wings. (OK, kidding about the bat wings). First up, I chat with a team from Elma Electronic about the perfect recipe for high speed wizardry in the world of VPX and the rituals we need to perform to get the newest and coolest technology features in OpenVPX. Continuing with our open architecture theme, I chat with Mike Walmsley from TE Connectivity about rugged embedded computing and the trends driving new interconnect design today.  Read More

Use Ada and win money

posted by Dick Selwood

Got An idea for an embedded project that will be running on an ARM Cortex M or R? Then – if you get your skates on - there is still time to take part in AdaCore's Make with Ada competition and as well as getting your project completed you could be in for a share of $88,000 prize money. (29-Aug)

CyrilJ,

You're links are broken.

What is FAR worse?

An 8-way time division multiplexor to "fairly share" memory between 6 processors and 2 DMA channels -- no priority accesses to starve another channel, no contention based allocations, just straight channel 1 gets only time slot 1, ch…

Now you might say that no one would be that stupid as to pack all accessed data into a single subchannel. With the number of sub-channels being 2^n (where n is 1, 2 or 3), it's also pretty likely that the underlying data structure to be processed will hav…

@Karl -- sure multiple banks/channels can offer concurrent read/write, or even multiply sourced reads/write -- but each channel still has the native single access or burst fill performance timings.

Now look at the last three figures above, where Cadenc…
