Signal Processing COTS Standards

Article

Aerospace and defense applications must support higher-bandwidth sensor input, more complex intersystem communications, and greater security for certain operations and related custom algorithms, all while contending with budget and schedule pressures. In addition to these broad challenges, application areas such as mission computing face the added difficulty of designing systems that meet restrictive size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints. Increasing function density within a current space envelope is a common way of addressing these challenges.[Continue reading →]

In the not too distant past, computers and RF were not to be in the same room, let alone the same piece of computing equipment. Then over the years the two became friendlier as microprocessors were used to control radios and eventually led to the creation of soft radios and today’s highly popular smart phone.[Continue reading →]

Embedded Tech Trends 2014, the business and technology forum for critical and intelligent embedded systems, just wrapped up in Phoenix. This year 19 sponsor companies and 13 editors and industry analysts gathered for an intensive two days of technology presentations and meetings. Twenty-five presentations were delivered in a very fast paced format that kept everyone on their toes. Each morning session of presentations was followed by a hectic afternoon of one-on-one sponsor/media meetings.

The purpose of the event is to bring media and industry thought leaders together to exchange ideas and to network among peers. It is good old fashioned face-to-face networking that is not possible with even the best of online social media networks. Nothing beats spending a few days with such a collection of industry colleagues. I left the event filled with new ideas and industry connections.[Continue reading →]

High-Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) has made tremendous leaps in performance and capability, with new implementations adding to the advancements. Processors like the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 are making HPEC a powerful and cost-effective solution, eliminating the compute performance bottleneck of previous generations. However, a major challenge for HPEC platforms remains, "How do I get more high-bandwidth data to the processors?" Applications such as radar, sonar, and other signal processing systems generate gigabytes of data that need high GFLOP computational power. Editor’s Note: This article first appeared as a blog post on the Intel Embedded Community website, and was published by the Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance.[Continue reading →]

The original VMEbus specification was tightly coupled to the Motorola 68000 bus architecture; since then, the open architectures defined by the various VITA standards are no longer restricted to any specific processor technology. This feature takes a look at the status of the current choice of processors.[Continue reading →]

VITA Technologies reached out to the supplier community to ask “What is your vision of the embedded board/systems business five years from now? What does it look like to you, from an application, technology, and business perspective?” The responses I got back were very interesting to me. They reinforce my observations on a trend to mass customization in the industry that I have commented on for several years. While many suppliers have not quite acknowledged the inevitable movement to mass customization, others have embraced the trend. They have adjusted their product strategies to better address the changing needs of customers who desire products that can be effectively and efficiently modified for their most specific needs. They have adjusted their product strategy to develop products that lend themselves well to customization, and can be implemented quickly and cost effectively.[Continue reading →]
