ATCA and AMC for You and Me

Artesyn, VadaTech and a New Generation of Communications

This week we’re taking the “A Train” to a land of wicked fast communications with a little help from advanced mezzanine card technology and advanced telecommunications computing architecture. On the AMC side of the tracks, we chat with Paul Kuepfer about VadaTech’s new Xilinx Virtex-based AMC595 and their new DAQ Software aimed at data acquisition systems. Rob Persons (Artesyn) is here to bring us the goods on ATCA: where it’s headed in the future, why it’s so important in today’s communication designs, and how it’s helping out the United States Navy. Also this week, we check out IBM’s new gig for Watson: choosing players for the Toronto Raptors.
