Good Stuff Department Releases Lattice ECP5 FPGA & VexRiscv-based Orange Crab Development Kit - BlogJuly 30, 2020
The Orange Crab is a crowd-funded platform designed to Adafruit's 50.8 mm x 22.9 mm Feather board specification, and supports all open-source toolchains.
In this edition of the embedded insiders, Brandon and Rich ponder whether RISC-V is taking too long to become a mainstream technology, or if it will even ever be one.
While maker boards like Arduino and Raspberry Pi are great because of their ultra-low cost, they are, well, cheap. That's where I-Pi comes in. It's a SMARC COM, carrier and Hardware-Attached Top.
Arduino and Raspberry Pi don't provide a sufficient analog to the electronic hardware in commercial products. Pro engineers need industrial-grade prototyping solutions. They need an "Industrial Pi."
In this edition of the Embedded Insiders, Brandon and Rich are joined by Brady Benware, VP and general manager of the tessent portfolio at Mentor, a Siemens business.
AI is all the rage these days, and poised to disrupt nearly every industry. In fact it already is. A recent IDC survey reported that the majority of companies are failing in their AI initiatives.
The dual-band, multi-protocol CC1352R SimpleLink wireless MCU that supports both 2.4 GHz technologies like Bluetooth, Bluetooth 5 Low Energy, Zigbee, and Thread, as well as Sub-GHz connectivity.
The Ada language abstracts most direct interaction with memory onto compilers, transitioning things like memory checks from a manual human operation to automatic. Get ready to save tons of debug time.
The new working groups will build from progress in the SIL2LinuxMP and Real-Time Linux projects to help bridge gaps between the safety standards and Linux development ecosystems.
Jennifer Fernick, Head of Research at NCC, spoke with Embedded Computing Design about 26 vulnerabilities found in the Zephyr RTOS and MCUboot bootloader during a recent security analysis.
Solid growth rates are projected across all product segments, with memory fabs leading global equipment spending at an estimated $30 billion.
New Version of Audio Precision Measurement Software Enables Multiple Simultaneous Analog, Digital Inputs - StoryJune 15, 2020
The multi-input feature can be used in both bench and sequence modes to analyze microphones and microphone arrays.
The DACs integrate direct digital synthesis, a programmable anti-sinc filter, a digital up-converter with four interpolation stages and sinc compensation, and a programmable complex mixer.
Don't know AI? Even less familiar with FPGAs? Well don't worry, because this week on Dev Kit Weekly we're getting acquainted with the Hello! FPGA Kit from Microchip.
"2020 Trends in Electronics Sourcing" report dives deep into the ways that COVID-19 has impacted the global supply chain, and the ramifications that has had on the engineering community.
Report Finds 88 Percent of U.K. Electronics Companies Will Recover from Pandemic in Less Than 12 Months - BlogJune 10, 2020
According to the report, 22 percent of respondents are not currently experiencing decreased sales activity, and a remarkable 88 percent estimate that sales benchmarks will recover within a year.
The IP was successfully taped out on a 5 nm FinFET test chip. It integrates PCIe, DisplayPort, and Thunderbolt 3 in one-third the area required by discrete PHYs.
VA7000 serializers and deserializers target ultra-high-speed networking applications in ADAS and autonomous drive subsystems that require long reach (15 meters), error-free links, and EMI immunity.
The provisional OpenVG 1.1 Lite spec is available on GitHub in markdown format. Conformance tests are also available under an Apache 2.0 license.
The new spec delivers high-speed unidirectional data, bi-directional control data, and optional power delivery over one cable, eliminating the need for a combination bridges and proprietary PHYs.
