The Future is Modular

Embedded Design, FMCs and Compact PCs

Whether you’re designing a COTS embedded computer, a low power consumer device, or an FPGA mezzanine card enhanced project, this Fish Fry has a little something for you. This week’s episode is all about FMCs, compact PCs, the future of embedded design, and some seriously cool new battery technology. Richard Avry (4DSP) joins us to chat about why he believes the future is modular, and what open standards like FMC and VPX buy us as engineers. Doug Patterson (Aitech) and I discuss the role of compact PCs in low power embedded systems and the challenges of designing compute platforms for millitary and aerospace applications. Also this week, we check out how University of California Irvine is changing the face of battery technology – one nanowire at a time.
