Game Consoles with USB 3.0 – XBox One and PS4 / (To USB or not to USB)
Microsoft unveiled the XBox One this week. The Press Conference revealed what we should have known (from reading about the Kinect 2) that the XBox One and the Kinect 2 have USB 3.0. Why is USB 3.0 necessary? The Kinect 2 has to take a 1920 x 1080 x a bunch of other numbers video stream. The system a [...]...
Blog Post: Fully Charged: Less is Not More / (TI E2E Community)
For most of my career developing portable equipment, I've been taught that "less is more." The fewer integrated circuit (IC) devices on a PC board, the better. We've been on a quest for smaller, lighter and cheaper since the first portable computers and mobile phones showed up 20 - 30 years ago. Much...
embedding video on webpage / (Consumerization: BYOD)
Good Morning, I'v been combing through the net including many links on this site, trying to get the necessary information to make a video play on my webpage. No Luck I've tried multiple pieces of code to embed the video, but in each case I am faced with either a ......

High-performance engines from Intel’s embedded roadmap, along with powerful graphics cards to capture a variety of medical modality and camera images, offer an ideal platform
If there are no challenges to produce memory modules, why are there differences in quality and price?
Portability provides flexibility for field maintenance, CAD, and other uses.
With increasing importance, digital signage has been praised as the next generation marketing platform and a competitive tool for companies seeking to extend their global reach.
As advertisers and retailers realize new ways to attract and engage consumers with rich multimedia messaging, new digital signage concepts are being deployed at an explosive rate. Intel
For most embedded applications, bigger isn’t necessarily better – in fact, small and mobile are the watchwords for the majority of today’s hottest new technologies.
Smartphones have dramatically changed the way consumers interact with technology. What kind of new application will impact our daily life this year?
Glasses-free 3D is here, and this emerging segment offers new opportunities – provided you understand the display technologies, content-creation and system integration challenges involved.
A product family with the same form factor and hardware and software interface allows POS manufacturers to achieve cost savings and a solid return on their investment.
The use of near-field communication (NFC) as a companion to digital signage is still quite new, but as emerging technologies go, NFC is one of the easiest and least expensive to deploy. The possibilities – and the benefits – are limited only by the imagination.

Editor Chris Ciufo spent time with Microchip software manager Joe Drzewiecki at the Spring DESIGN West show (formerly known as ESC). Microchip launched their new MPLAB X compiler strategy that now goes across all Microchip MCUs. It also adds a new license strategy, optimizations that compile 35 percent faster on 32-bit devices (or save 35 percent on code size). There's also a "totally free" version of the MPLAB X compiler. Check out the 3 minute video.
During the Digital Signage Expo 2012, Axiomtek revealed the OPS860, a digital signage player module based on Intel's Open Pluggable Specification. The OPS860 allows users to plug in the module to any OPS compliant display to create an All-in-One Digital Signage Solution. No more messy cables and wires. Just plug in and go!
