Industrial electronics semiconductors made small but important gains in the first quarter this year, affirming continued strength for a sector that had been battered only two years
PCs- Intel showed a strong growth trend in the PC market with greater than expected gains in notebooks (9%) and desktops (8%) YoY. This is not surprising as we've been predicting
North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $1.28 billion in orders worldwide in March 2014 (three-month average basis) and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.06, according

At GE Intelligent Platforms, we understand that one of the greatest challenges involved in developing cutting edge defense systems is keeping advanced electronics cool.
Our AXIS software provides libraries for signal processing and inter-processor communications along with graphical tools to facilitate system visualization and rapid prototyping.
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
Featured White Papers
Q: Should I put some sort of circuit between my sensor and an analog-to-digital converter?
A: Yes. You probably need some signal conditioning. The explanation below goes on for a bit, but stay with it and you'll understand what you need and why you need it.
Q: How often should my equipment make measurements? A: This question often arises when people draft plans to automatically measure a physical quantity such as temperature, pressure, acidity, liquid level, and so on. You can approach this problem in several ways, from an educated guess to a mathematical analysis of your system. The examples that follow use temperature measurements because people measure temperature more than any other physical characteristic.
This white paper, written by Vlad Konopelko, Product Marketing Manager, North America, for Pentair’s Schroff brand, introduces seven essential mechanical structure and protection standards and design considerations for specifying a reliable 19” electronics cabinet solution for non-IT applications
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.
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.
Small light-weight UAV SAR have always been a compromise between size, weight, and power, with capability and real-time actionable intelligence. Traditional digital signal processing technologies processing capability struggles to meet small light weight UAV SAR mission requirements in a timely fashion. Rugged COTS GPGPU boards with their impressive processing capability will disrupt the traditional methods of creating and designing SARs for light-weight UAVs.
This paper explores the ramifications of real-time autonomous vehicle performance in cluttered environments. It analyzes the gap between the predictable and the unpredictable, introduces real object tracing, explores the benefits and pitfalls of real-time moving object tracking and introduces possible solutions for uninterrupted operation of autonomous vehicles.
