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.

“Mommy, Daddy … Why is the sky blue?” As you scramble for an answer that lies somewhere between a discussion of refraction in gasses and “Oh, look—a doggie!” you already know the response to whatever you say will be a horrifyingly sincere “B...

Given that the industry is beginning to reach the limits of what can physically and economically be achieved through further shrinkage of process geometries, reducing feature size and increasing transistor counts is no longer achieving the same result it once did. Instead the...
