Live from IDF2014: Editor Chris A. Ciufo visits _two_ Kontron stands and learns that rugged "shoebox" computers bounce (and don't break), and that COTS-based NFV/SDN is coming to a
Live from IDF2014: Interview with SunMan Engineering, an IoT pioneer. In this 4 minute video, editor Chris A. Ciufo interviews Kaveh Pirzadeh, Director of Engineering and learns that SunMan designed a connected car IVI system several years ago. SunMan describes their IoT systems that include hardware, software, gateways, and cloud-based management software. Case examples discussed: IVI, digital farming, and human replacement...just maybe.

Live from IDF2014: Chris A. Ciufo interviews Noah Clemons on Intel® System Studio. Lead Technical Consulting Engineer Clemons explains what’s in the latest Intel® System Studio and how it applies to “all things embedded”. The tool suite gets better in 2014 with new additions, full Yocto™ support, and applicability to all manner of Intel® processors for embedded: from Quark™, Edison, Atom™ and Core™…all the way up to embedded Xeon® processors. Of note: there’s a system-level view of designs and the way-cool VTune™ Amplifier 2014 for cross platform power and performance analysis.

Our AXIS software provides libraries for signal processing and inter-processor communications along with graphical tools to facilitate system visualization and rapid prototyping.
This is a video showing the performance of the Pericom USB 3.0 ReDriver. The advent of high-speed, serial-differential protocols like the PCIe operating at 2.5Gbps data rates and above, system designers are forced to confront the challenges of maintaining eye-pattern signal integrity at the receiver end-points.
Pericom provides a complete solution of video signal path in Notebook and Docking Station designs with Video Switch and ReDrivers. Pericom's Video Switch enable switching between DisplayPort and HDMI ports. Pericom's Video ReDriver comply to a DP 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 standards and are capable of maintaining signal integrity over a cable length up to 30 meters.
As recently reported by Engadget, recently leaked documents dating to 2008 show the NSA has created methods to hack iPhones. Apple has recently vehmently denied knowledge of this and plans on doing some digging of its own.

As signaling rates continue to increase, maintaining signal integrity has become a much greater challenge for developers. Migrating a system to a next-generation interface operating at 5, 8, 10, or 12 Gbps brings with it increased sensitivity to attenuation and jitter that can severely curtail reach and reliability.
Precision is at the heart of every diagnostic device. The precision of a system is the degree to which the system will consistently provide the same result given the same operating conditions. Precision is crucial – whether a system is a complex magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sensor, an embedded tire pressure sensor, or a low-cost blood glucose meter – because it serves as the foundation for both accuracy and reliability. For example, if a meter’s readings between two equivalent samples vary significantly, it will be difficult for the system to determine an appropriate response.
Using virtualization to host multiple discrete workloads on a single computing device is an important trend in manufacturing today, leading to reduced cost and complexity in the factory environment. This white paper describes the benefits of system consolidation along with the technical requirements for implementation. Read now to learn more.
Traditional methods of digital signal processing in military and aerospace applications have used specialized FPGAs, multiprocessor VME or OpenVPX solutions. Advances in microprocessor technology and accompanying software could mean that AdvancedTCA® (ATCA®) has the potential to replace some of those expensive highly specialized elements in complex signal processing applications.

Complex visual processing is becoming an important part of rugged industrial applications. Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) of manufacturing lines, Infrared Thermography (IRT) in oil refineries, and traffic safety enforcement are some examples of the ways image and video processing improve quality, efficiency, and safety. However, visual computing in rugged environments has its challenges. Most applications are resource-intensive and include extensive 2D and 3D graphics processing. Tough environmental conditions require fanless designs that limit power and present thermal dissipation challenges. Customers are also pushing for smaller sizes and lower costs.
The quality and flexibility of digital signage is a function of the graphics processing capability of the media players that drive the displays. To deliver a high level of graphics performance, media players tend to incorporate discrete graphics processing units, although some players use the graphics engine on the CPU platform.
