Safety (and Security) First

Embedded Software, TÜV Certification, and 64 bits

In this week’s Fish Fry, we’re taking on safety, security, and the embedded design software in between. Michael May (Express Logic) and I start things off with an in-depth discussion about the ongoing design-in battle between 32 and 64 bit processors and where ThreadX RTOS fits into the embedded ecosystem. Keeping with this week’s embedded software theme, I also chat with Jim McElroy (LDRA) about what we need to do when our designs must adhere to a security-critical standard, why TÜV Certification is so important, and what it’s like to capitan a whale watching boat.

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.

ActiveCiPS™: Configurable Intelligent Power Management Solutions

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Qorvo

Programmable power management can not only help us manage our power systems but it can also have size, weight, and cost benefits as well. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Yael Coleman from Qorvo about the system-wide benefits of configurable power management solutions. They investigate the programmable features of the ActiveCips configurable intelligent power management solutions and review how these solutions can help you balance weight, size, power and cost in your next design.
