Multicore processing takes center stage in this week’s episode of Fish Fry. Richard Jaenicke (Green Hills Software) and I discuss the challenges of multicore processing in avionics applications and how we can address multiple layers of safety certification on a software level. We also chat about the power of testing in avionics and and why you can’t mitigate multicore interference at the application level. Also this week, … Read More → "Keep ‘Em Separated"
You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
“The Gambler” – Kenny Rogers
Maybe the writing is on the wall. Maybe the truth is hidden in between the lines of your BOM. Maybe you really want to find another way but you don’t know where … Read More → "When Tomorrow Never Comes"
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Peter Drucker
I just flew in from San Diego and boy is my VPX tired! Coming to you from the Embedded Tech Trends Conference in Southern California, this week’s episode of Fish Fry is all about how open system architectures can drive innovation in the world of embedded design. First up, Mark Littlefield ( … Read More → "“The Future is Now” – Embedded Tech Trends 2019"
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the lab
Not a tech was stirring, not even in the fab;
The daughter cards were hung by their headers with care,
In hopes that St. VPX soon would be there;
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we are diving deep into the world of VPX. Dave Caserza, Michael Munroe, Ovidiu Mesesan ( … Read More → "Clear and Present Signals"
Perhaps when the most important problem is a nail, every solution starts to look like a hammer. With the ramping explosion in AI and machine learning, countless companies are trying to climb on the bandwagon, morphing and melding their existing technologies in an attempt to come up with a differentiated solution that will capture a meaningful share of this mind-boggling emerging opportunity. Everybody from EDA vendors to cloud data … Read More → "Achronix Accelerates eFPGA"
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you know that FPGA-based compute acceleration is suddenly a hot topic. And, even from under the rock, you probably got the memo that Intel paid over $16B to acquire Altera a couple years back – mostly to capitalize on this “new” emerging killer app for FPGA technology. These days there is an enormous battle brewing for control … Read More → "Ye Olde FPGA Acceleration"
