Controlling the Spectrum and the Future of Battlefield Tech

Processor Speed Bumps, GPPs, and High-End Embedded Computing

by Amelia Dalton

Embedded computing is the name of the game in this week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry. First up, Roy Keeler (ADLINK) and I chat about how we can overcome processor speed bumps, the general rule of thumb when it comes to spectrum dominance, and the evolution (and future trajectory) of GPPs. In our second interview this week, Mike Slonosky (Curtiss-Wright) and I talk about the increased implementation of Arm cores in Mil/Aero designs and the details of their new 3U VPX for safety-critical designs.

5 (Nearly) Universal IoT Security Problems

Sponsored by Avnet

Are there security use cases in the Internet of Things that apply to basically any business? Where 100% of people would end up falling in to one or more categories? While IoT is chock full of customization, there are security measures that thread through nearly all deployments. These are the five biggest we see.

3 Steps to IoT Deployment

Sponsored by Avnet

With the Internet of Things, you almost never deploy and forget. Deployments are never static. In order to set your IoT deployment up for success, however, you need to start well at the beginning to get your project to a strong conclusion. We break this process down into three steps: consult, develop and then deploy.
