What do Moore’s Law, the Von Neuman Bottleneck, and alpha-band brain activity have in common?! This week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry! Matthew Burns (Samtec) joins us to discuss how we can prepare for the next wave of high speed fabrics in embedded computing and why these new faster fabrics will make our design lives harder not easier. … Read More → "Faster Interconnect! Go! Go!"
Let’s start out by simplifying the name. Since “Intel FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card N3000 for Networking” is kinda’ a mouthful, they gave us the shortcut “Intel FPGA PAC N3000” – shorter and suitably opaque. But, when it comes to 5G deployment, nothing is as simple as we’d like it to be. We’ve spent a lot of time on the radio end of 5G, discussing … Read More → "Flipping the Script on 5G Networking"
Create the hype, but don’t ever believe it. – Simon Cowell
Despite the tons of early hype, the worldwide 5G race has just begun. In a race to announce the first operational 5G network in the US, cellular communications vendors AT&T and Verizon have both initiated limited 5G cellular trials in a handful of cities. AT&T’s 5G … Read More → "Will the 5G IoT Race be Won Solely by Marketing?"
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we gaze up at the starlit sky and dream of space exploration. We chat with Noel Dube (Reflex CES) about the differences between Low-Earth Orbit (LEO), Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) and Very Low Earth Orbit (VLEO) and investigate the unique challenges each of these orbits present designers today. We also discuss the role of optical transceivers and interconnects will play in … Read More → "When You Just Can’t Fix It"
Let’s say that you’ve got some IoT equipment that you need to deploy out in some far-flung location. And you need to be able to connect to the cloud with it for data upload (and maybe download too). What are your choices?
No, this isn’t yet another Read More → "Wireless IoT Flexibility"
Anecdote 1. The familiar chime goes off on my phone: a text has arrived. I go to the phone to see what someone has to say, and I see the rather cryptic, “Unreceived message.” Well that’s odd… cuz the sound means I just received a text, right?
I click the “Download” button to receive the text I just received (but … Read More → "Outside the Silicon Valley Bubble"
