The combination of improved design automation,
round-the-clock design teams and old-fashioned cost-cutting are pushing
engineers into the Gig Economy. That reality runs counter to
recent comments from Intel executives and RISC pioneers David Patterson
and John Hennessy would assert we are in the midst of a “hundred
flowers bloom” epoch for the design of high-integration digital logic,
particularly as specialized processors are required for domains such as
deep-learning AI and quantum computing.
PCI Express (PCIe) will get a 6.0 spec in 2021,
enabling data rates up to 64 gigatransfers per second (GT/s) and
leveraging PAM-4 modulation. The news shows that copper interconnects
will have a long life, albeit with an increasingly short reach.
It’s time to have an honest discussion about
self-driving cars. Nobody is likely to start getting a return on their
investment in autonomous vehicle (AV) technology before 2025, and a
fully self-driving vehicle is unlikely before 2030. Those are both
COMe-C55-CT6 is a COM Express™ 3.0
Compact Type 6 with the 8th Gen Intel® Core™ U-series processors
(Whiskey Lake). With an Intel® UHD Graphics 620 and two DDR4 SO-DIMM
slots supporting DDR4-2400 (up to 32GB), it is an ideal platform for
mobile applications, digital signage & infotainment and edge
Momentum continues to coalesce slowly around the
creation of an open-chiplet ecosystem, enabling the heterogeneous
integration of chiplets from multiple vendors in a system-in-package
(SiP). Chiplets represent one of several efforts to compensate for
slowing performance gains through brute-force scaling; it’s the slowing
of Moore’s Law.
Unmanned vehicles hold great promise
for the future while also giving rise to new data security and data
integrity challenges. When removing the human factor, we are even more
reliant on technology to keep our data intact and protected.
Over the last year or so, we’ve heard many times
that ‘this is the moment for RISC-V’. So, this week, I attended the
RISC-V workshop in Zurich to get an idea of where it really is at right
now. The conclusion: while there is still a lot of background work to
be done for RISC-V to go mainstream, the signs are that all the
triggers to make it happen are now gradually being released.
Micron Industrial Surveillance Edge
Storage MicroSD Cards offer edge storage technology for surveillance
cameras and feature optimized firmware that provides balanced
performance for 24x7 high-quality video recording with minimal frame
“Making autonomy safe” is perhaps one of the
hardest nuts for designers of AI-based autonomous vehicles to crack.
Assume your self-driving vehicle didn’t hit a mother and a small child
crossing the street. This, however, shouldn’t swell your bosom with the
confidence that you’re tooling around in the safest vehicle on the
road. It only means that you don’t know what exactly your neural
In addition to signal frequency and bandwidth, the
signal linearity and chirp duration determine radar performance. It is
therefore important to analyze automotive radar signal parameters such
as chirp length, chirp rate and frequency deviation.

We knew it was going to be bad. But could being
placed on the Trump administration's export blacklist actually be
enough to put Huawei out of business?
Industry is placing ever-greater emphasis on
automation, particularly with the increasing deployment of Industry 4.0
technology. The latest developments in machine vision systems open up
opportunities for the manufacturing sector to raise quality and
throughput simultaneously. Furthermore, new applications are starting
to appear in other industries, e.g. object detection and...
One of the main challenges with battery-operated
connected devices is autonomy. An increasing number will have
requirements for greater battery power or longer battery life, but will
not support bigger batteries. Some wearables, for example, might be
medical implants; it’s not likely a bulky battery will be an option for
such devices. Battery technology is keeping up by making use of energy
Going way beyond what conventional
electro-mechanical components can achieve, MEMS devices are now seeing
huge market uptake across a broad spectrum of industry sectors - from
automotive to consumer electronics, from factory automation right
through to medical. Providing highly reliable operation and elevated
performance in compact form factors, and at very attractive price
points, MEMS sensors have the added convenience ...
