The High Cost of Compliance

There are two predominant architectures in the module market: Intel (x86 and Atom) and ARM, and each have "Standards" defined by different user groups. Standards have their place, particularly in the Intel world where one licensee has ensured compatibility over many years... Read More

Precision Drives Power A New Generation of Prosthetics

Worldwide, 3-4 million people are living today with debilitating limb loss. In the United States alone, there are 4.7 million people who would benefit from an active lower limb orthosis due to the effects of stroke, polio, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury and cerebral palsy. Read More

Using F-RAM® to Build Smart Airbag for Automotive Applications

Ferroelectric-RAM (F-RAM) memory is used in a wide variety of applications, including industrial control systems, industrial automation, mission-critical space applications, and automotive systems. Safety systems for automobiles are expected to become more sophisticated over the next several years. Read More

Considering the ARM® Architecture for Industrial PCs

An industrial PC (IPC) must satisfy different requirements when compared to an office computer. Depending on the application area, these requirements can differ greatly. Currently, 99% of all office computers are based on x86 technology, while an industrial PC is usually an x86 processor in a ruggedized format. This identity applies to most industrial PCs on the market with little thought given to whether this is correct. Read More

Lighten the Load with the Cypress PSoC Analog Coprocessor

week ago or so, I had the opportunity to talk to Gagan Luthra, product marketing manager of PSoC and CapSense products at Cypress, about their new PSoC Analog Coprocessor. When I first heard about the development board they'd created for this coprocessor, I must confess my first thought was, "Yet another Arduino compatible dev board but with a PSoC this time" with almost a resigned sigh.

New solar power System kills nearly 100% of bacteria within 20 minutes

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have found another solution for achieving water purification that is related to solar disinfection. The team has discovered a nanomaterial that can kill 99.999% of bacteria in water within only 20 minutes, significantly improving on the standard model of purifying water through UV, which requires two days.
