ATCA and AMC for You and Me

Artesyn, VadaTech and a New Generation of Communications

This week we’re taking the “A Train” to a land of wicked fast communications with a little help from advanced mezzanine card technology and advanced telecommunications computing architecture. On the AMC side of the tracks, we chat with Paul Kuepfer about VadaTech’s new Xilinx Virtex-based AMC595 and their new DAQ Software aimed at data acquisition systems. Rob Persons (Artesyn) is here to bring us the goods on ATCA: where it’s headed in the future, why it’s so important in today’s communication designs, and how it’s helping out the United States Navy. Also this week, we check out IBM’s new gig for Watson: choosing players for the Toronto Raptors.

I worked at HP in Ft. Collins, Colorado back in the 1970s. It was a heady experience. We were designing and building early, pre-PC desktop computers and we owned the market back then. The division I worked for eventually migrated to 32-bit workstations, chased from the deskto...

As discussed in part 1 of this blog post, each instance of an Achronix Speedcore eFPGA in your ASIC or SoC design must be configured after the system powers up because Speedcore eFPGAs employ nonvolatile SRAM technology to store its configuration bits. The time required to pr...
