Houston, We Have a Problem

Embedded Tech Trends 2016

Got your ten-gallon beanie propellers snapped on tight? We’re headed straight to the heart of critical embedded computing – where the blackplanes run free and protocols fill the sky. In this week’s Fish Fry, we’re rustlin’ up some Texas-sized open standards at the 2016 Embedded Tech Trends Conference in Houston Texas. First up, we chat with David Jedynak and Ivan Straznicky from Curtiss-Wright about VITA open standard 48.8, the first open standard AFT technology to support small form 3U VPX COTS modules. Also this week, Rodger Hosking (VP – Pentek) joins Fish Fry to discuss the VITA 49 Radio Transport protocol, the goods underneath the hood of Pentek’s Colbat FPGA boards, and why membership in the VITA Standards Organization is vital to our community.

[From the last episode: We looked at subroutines in computer programs.] We saw a couple weeks ago that some memories are big, but slow (flash memory). Others are fast, but not so big '€“ and they'€™re power-hungry to boot (SRAM). This sets up an interesting problem. When ...
