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.
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.
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!)
The SWaP-C trend continues unabated as ever more C4ISR, SIGINT, SDR and radar/sonar processing applications demand TeraFLOP computing in rugged, compact systems.

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. Discover how 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ processors provide retailers improved graphics performance and anonymous video analytics to deliver audience messaging at lower cost and watt.
