Getting Higher Resolution Analog Signals into the Digital Domain

December 08, 2010

Rob explains how baseboard FPGAs and FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) I/O cards are teaming up with bigger FPGAs and the new industry standard FMCs (ANSI/VITA 57.1) for a new generation of ADCs. System designers are building open standards-based board systems where ADC and DAC capabilities are...

VMEbus & Critical Systems
New patent-pending CoolWall chassis sandwiches alloys and takes the heat beyond the competition.

ANSI/VITA 65 - The ins and outs of OpenVPX chassis selection

December 01, 2010

VMEbus & Critical Systems
The recently ratified ANSI/VITA 65 (OpenVPX) standard includes recommended profiles for development chassis including key areas such as power supply outputs and chassis cooling. Together with a variety of standard OpenVPX backplane profiles, this...

Message in a Bottleneck: Time to Double Fabric Bandwidth with Gen2 Serial RapidIO

October 20, 2010

The new Gen2 SRIO switches double bandwidth and support the DoD move to open standards network architecture.
The recent introduction of Gen2 Serial RapidIO (SRIO) switch chips (Figure 1) from IDT is great news for the COTS embedded defense and aerospace market...

FMC standard benefits high-speed FPGAs in aerospace and defense

October 05, 2010

New generations of FPGAs present developers with a level of processing performance and potential I/O bandwidth that cannot easily be matched by conventional CPU configurations. While many COTS solutions enable developers to readily make use of FPGAs for processing, the real challenge to...

Matching up compatible OpenVPX backplanes and modules

August 01, 2010

VMEbus & Critical Systems
VITA 65 (OpenVPX) aims to solve VPX's (VITA 46's) interoperability dilemmas, but an understanding of the new OpenVPX and how to mix and match modules and backplanes is an important first step in using this ANSI-ratified standard.

UAV System Architectures: the next evolution

August 01, 2010

Military Embedded Systems
Network-centricity and recent advances in high-speed serial fabric technologies, along with legacy device bridging methodologies, enable highly flexible UAV system architectures to meet the rapidly changing demands of the 21st century battlefield, while...

A Call to Arms: Auto Industry Quality Standards Provide Path to SWaP-C Reduction

June 06, 2010

For a whole new emerging class of rugged and mobile systems where power, heat and compact size are critical considerations, the Arm architecture offers a wide range of flexibility.

OpenVPX and multiprocessor embedded systems gain momentum

June 05, 2010

With the advent of high-speed serial (HSS) fabrics, the VME parallel bus proved insufficient for the needs of higher-performance embedded systems. VPX, also known as VITA 46, is the follow-on to the VME specification for the next generation of high-speed interconnects for harsh...

Getting the most out of multicore processors

June 05, 2010

During the past 10 years, the embedded market has undergone an SBC evolution, migrating from a single processor to two processors, then to dual-core process chips. More recently, the industry has seen the emergence of multicore System-on-Chip (SoC) devices like the P4080 from Freescale,...
