Pentek's Rodger Hosking talks with Technology Editor Bill Wong about how this platform takes advantage of Xilinx's latest Virtex-7 FPGA.
The SWaP-C trend continues unabated as ever more C4ISR, SIGINT, SDR and radar/sonar processing applications demand TeraFLOP computing in rugged, compact systems.
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.
At DESIGN West 2012 (aka "ESC" San Jose), Senior Editor Chris A. Ciufo sat down with TI's Matt Kurtz, Manager, Wireless Connectivity Group. Matt's group's job is to add wireless capabilities to microcontrollers with "everything from ANT to ZigBee". Consider their SimpleLink initiative, which is comprised of chipsets, protocols, APIs and drivers that make easy the task of adding wireless to a TI microcontroller product. In this short video, Matt explains that TI's focus is one-stop-shopping and simplicity. Judging from market feedback, TI has met its goals.
The RTR 2746 provides real-time 16-bit data capture on multiple simultaneous channels using 200 MHz ADCs and can play back recorded data through 1.25 GHz 16-bit DACs to reproduce the captured signal. Handling signal bandwidths to 80 MHz, the instrument includes built-in digital up- and down-converters that allow a direct interface to IF signal frequencies up to 700 MHz. The instrument supports up to eight data channels with a customer-specified mix of recording and playback capabilities. Link: http://www.pentek.com/go/2746video

"Industrial computer" is a widely used term that unfortunately can be quite ambiguous, often applied to computers that have little real advantage over commercial PCs but may outwardly appear "rugged". However, there are many applications that need a computer system that is truly built to a higher standard…
The MIL-STD-1553 serial data bus is widely used for control purposes in avionics, aircraft and space systems. Forty years since its release, 1553 is evolving from traditional integrated circuits (IC) to intellectual property (IP) cores integrated with Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) logic. The history of MIL-STD-1553, the advantages and requirements of 1553 IP cores compared to standard ICs, and IP core design best practices are discussed in this white paper.
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are semiconductor devices that are programmed after manufacturing to accomplish application specific functionality. FPGAs experienced rapid technology advancement in the 1990s, and today are found in a vast variety of products ranging from simple consumer items to highly complex military systems.
High-speed signal processing systems that utilize stored streaming data are among the applications driving the demand for an unprecedented amount of storage capacity. Data-intensive ISR, situational awareness, sonar and airborne monitoring as well as non-defense applications place significant demands on storage systems. These same embedded applications also frequently require high bandwidth access as well as data encryption, fast erasure and write protection.
Learn how to rapidly compute custom FFTs, SERDES, logic, and more with FPGAs. We discuss implementing co-processors, like Acromag Virtex-6 FPGA modules with high-speed PCIe/GbE interconnects, that make use of multiple digital clock managers with IP cores and software development tools to attain higher performance and flexibility.
Pentek offers board and system-level SDR products that include digital downconverters, upconverters and transceivers for a complete SDR solution.
DO-178C is the how-to manual for complying with Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), which outlines the software development requirements for FAA approval. This paper focuses on specific processes, such as verification and validation activities, traceability, testing methods, and test environments described in DO-178C.
