Embedded Processor Boards, Intel Inside, and Concurrent Technologies

A vapor trail streams across an empty sky. Steel wheels slowly grind to a halt in the early morning fog. We’re headed to the heart of critical embedded system design in this week’s Fish Fry. Nigel Forrester (Concurrent Technologies) and I chat about overcoming the challenges of high performance embedded computing, the importance of security in Intel-based processor cards, and what the “Under 17 Car Club” is all about. Also this week, we attempt to unravel  the mysteries of industrial power supply design.

If you read my post Who Put the Silicon in Silicon Valley? then you know my conclusion: Let's go with Shockley. He invented the transistor, came here, hired a bunch of young PhDs, and sent them out (by accident, not design) to create the companies, that created the compa...
