Houston, We Have a Problem

Embedded Tech Trends 2016

Got your ten-gallon beanie propellers snapped on tight? We’re headed straight to the heart of critical embedded computing – where the blackplanes run free and protocols fill the sky. In this week’s Fish Fry, we’re rustlin’ up some Texas-sized open standards at the 2016 Embedded Tech Trends Conference in Houston Texas. First up, we chat with David Jedynak and Ivan Straznicky from Curtiss-Wright about VITA open standard 48.8, the first open standard AFT technology to support small form 3U VPX COTS modules. Also this week, Rodger Hosking (VP – Pentek) joins Fish Fry to discuss the VITA 49 Radio Transport protocol, the goods underneath the hood of Pentek’s Colbat FPGA boards, and why membership in the VITA Standards Organization is vital to our community.

I worked at HP in Ft. Collins, Colorado back in the 1970s. It was a heady experience. We were designing and building early, pre-PC desktop computers and we owned the market back then. The division I worked for eventually migrated to 32-bit workstations, chased from the deskto...

As discussed in part 1 of this blog post, each instance of an Achronix Speedcore eFPGA in your ASIC or SoC design must be configured after the system powers up because Speedcore eFPGAs employ nonvolatile SRAM technology to store its configuration bits. The time required to pr...
