Optics All Around: Light on Board and Waves in the Ground

This week we investigate embedded optical modules with Gerry Persaud from Reflex Photonics – The Light on Board Company. Gerry and I discuss the benefits of  their chip-sized embedded optical modules and why Reflex Photonics stands out in the optical module ecosystem. We also check out a research study at Stanford University that demonstrates how optical fiber cables embedded … Read More → "Optics All Around: Light on Board and Waves in the Ground"

RISC-V and The New Frontier of Microprocessors

What has RISC-V done for you lately? In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we chat with Rick O’Connor (executive director of the RISC-V Foundation) about the history of RISC-V, the evolution of the standards being developed within the foundation, and why Rick thinks that RISC-V is the most interesting thing to happen in the microprocessors in the last decade. … Read More → "RISC-V and The New Frontier of Microprocessors"

Real World ATCA and SWAP-C, a Revolution in Gaming, and Bathtub Drones

Welcome my electronic engineering compatriots! We’ve got quite a line up for you this week. First up, Rob Persons (Artesyn Embedded Technologies) joins us to discuss the details of a real world AdvancedTCA application that utilizes SWAP-C called DASCAN (Dynamically Adaptive Secure Computing Area Network) and how AdvancedTCA applications compare with more traditional server-based applications in battlefield environments. We also discuss how Artesyn has collaborated with Gamestream and … Read More → "Real World ATCA and SWAP-C, a Revolution in Gaming, and Bathtub Drones"

Robbing from Your Future to Service Your Past

The design cycle drum beats on. Your research and development team have been stressed for months. The constant push for “the next big thing” keeps you up at night. We’ve all been there. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we look at how the ever-growing life cycles of our embedded designs affect our product portfolio profitability. Ethan Plotkin (GDCA – CEO) … Read More → "Robbing from Your Future to Service Your Past"

New Defense and Aerospace ProductsIf you’re working on mil-standard systems and are worried about SWaP-C (and who isn’t?) you know that getting a reliable, off-the-shelf DC to DC converter and filter are critical to the success of your system. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kai Johnstad of Vicor about solving mil-standard COTS power problems. … Read More → "New Defense and Aerospace Products"
Altera Stratix 10 SecuritySecurity is a key issue in just about every system design today. And, in FPGA-based systems you need robust security features built into the FPGA itself. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Ryan Kenny of Altera discuss the new security features in Altera’s Stratix 10 FPGAs and how they help you address … Read More → "Altera Stratix 10 Security"
SystemVision® Multi-discipline System Verification DatasheetThe SystemVision multi-discipline collaboration environment lets you explore concepts, validate performance specifications, investigate architectural partitions, and integrate implementation-level details, all in an easy-to-use virtual prototyping environment. Focus on a single design domain, or combine multiple domains, for full-system verification.
Modernizing System DevelopmentAllowing disconnected development and waiting until the latest program stages to perform systems integration and connect all the pieces is a high risk situation, yet one all too common in today’s product realization process. Bringing domain expertise together as appropriate throughout a project’s development process is imperative for project success.  This paper explores a more … Read More → "Modernizing System Development"
New Approach to Manage Electrical ComplexityToday’s competitive and challenging environment, thought-leaders are recommending a shift to systems engineering. Using a systems engineering approach could help OEMs maintain product quality, reduce costs, manage change, and achieve time to market. This paper talks about applying systems engineering principles using the Capital tool suite to address these issues.
Accelerating Open Source Security Using OpenCL & Altera FPGAsToday’s FPGAs offer interesting potential for accelerating performance- and power-critical operations such as security algorithms. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ryan Kenny of Altera about using FPGAs to accelerate open source security algorithms written in OpenCL.
