  • Blog Post: From zero to hero  /  (TI E2E Community)

    It’s not easy for any device to be a hero, but the AM570x processor is just that—a hero. With a cost optimized platform that reduces board space with a 17x17 mm package size, combined ARM® Cortex®-A15, ARM Cortex-M4 , C66x DSP , 3D and 2D acceleration cores and an integrated Industrial Communications Subsystem...

  • A nice shout out in about @scalableinfo #HPC #storage  /   (

    See the article here. Surely though, widespread adoption is just a matter of time. With its PCIe connectivity, literally slotting in, NVMe offers the ability to push hyper-converged utility and scalability to wider sets of use cases than currently. There are some vendors that focus on their NVMe/hyper-converged products,...

    PCI-SIG Developers Conference 2016 is now history, taking place at the Santa Clara Convention Center at 28 th -29 th June, once again proving it’s not an event you want to miss. With PCIe 4.0 standard maturing, we’re seeing a lot of action in the market, though there are questions that have to be answered. There were...

  • How to Maximize Your Verification Experience at DAC 2016  /   (Frank Schirrmeister Blog)

    Next week will mark the annual EDA gathering in Austin. For me it is my 20 th DAC … I know, compared to some I am still wet behind my ears, but that’s only because I started my career in embedded software and actual chip development. I already outlined in my Blog “ The Top Five Trends In Verification To Watch For...

  • High-speed Switched Serial Fabrics Improve System Design

    This handbook reviews the development of gigabit serial fabrics to enhance system optimization; the role of FPGAs to implement this technology; and how some of the latest products can be used in high-speed data acquisition, recording and SDR systems.

  • Addressing IP Integration & Software Development Challenges to Accelerate SoC Time-to-Market

    This white paper explores the issues facing SoC designers as they address SoC complexity and time-to-market challenges. High-quality IP alone is not enough with today’s SoC complexity.

  • Overcoming Advanced Signaling Integrity Issues in High-Speed 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.

  • Increasing Precision in Diagnostic Equipment

    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.
