- Video Decoder delivers 960H image over 500 meter cables with built-in Adaptive Equalizer (AEQ)
Pericomâs multi-channel A/D video decoders with AEQ are an ideal solution to solve the problem of video signal degradation over long, analog CCTV cables. Our proprietary built-in Adaptive Equalization (AEQ) algorithms recover signal over 500-meter or longer cables, and eliminate the additional costly signal amplifiers in the Surveillance Security CCTV systems. In this video, you will see the camera image comparison of Pericom's AEQ-enabled video decoders in real surveillance application.

- 8-bit MCUs Keep Getting Better With "Intelligent Analog" Features
8-bit MCUs just keep getting better and more integrated. Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo interviews Microchip's 8-bit MCU guru Greg Robinson. Among the new "intelligent analog" PIC16F170X/171X family's best features: two internal Op Amps and Zero Cross Detect--both analog features reduce board space and BOM cost. 10-bit ADC and 8-bit DACs plus a programmable pin crossbar make these 8-bangers some of the most innovative in the market.

- Rip Van Winkle Bluetooth Low Energy Wakes Up, Then Sleeps Again
Bluetooth Low Energy (LE, or BLE, or Smart) is all about sending and receiving data just like any other Bluetooth device, but doing so using much less power. It's ideally suited for M2M applications where a device wakes up, transmits or receives data, then goes back to sleep. The Bluetooth SIG specifies myriad application profiles from healthcare ("Blood Pressure Profile") to Sports and Fitness. At the recent DESIGN West 2013 conference, editor-in-chief Chris A. Ciufo got the lowdown on Laird's new BL600 Bluetooth LE Smart modules.
- Comprehensive Experimental Analyses of Automotive Attack Surfaces
Cars can be hacked; connected cars with Bluetooth or cellular, even more so. "Comprehensive Experimental Analyses of Automotive Attack Surfaces". Stephen Checkoway of the University of California, San Diego presents a seminal refereed paper at the 20th USENIX Security Symposium in August 2011. This video will shock and frighten you at the same time, but if you're an embedded developer--it should wake you up to start taking security seriously. (Note the digital speedometer info display hack 5 seconds into the briefing!)

- Ericsson uses Intel to Make a Volvo Electric Vehicle Brilliant
Electric cars are nothing new. In fact, just of 100 years ago, they were considered a very reasonable alternative to gasoline powered cars from that era. Then, due to advancements in the internal combustion engine at the time, and other improvements, the economics shifted such that petroleum-based vehicles became the norm...
