IoT for ADAS; ESC 2015 focuses on security; untangling neural networks; what drives new tools; consolidation conundrum; IoT growth forecast; three ages of FPGA

Likening a business collaboration to a road trip may be stretching a metaphor that would make Jack Kerouac blush, but David McKinney, Intel, presses on as he explains Intel and QNX’s ADAS solution, based on Intel IoT for automobiles. He includes some interesting links and a video to inform the reader.

A review of ESC 2015 shows that Chris Ciufo is not only ahead of the curve, advocating embedded security, but also not one to pass by a freebie at a show. He relates some of the highlights from the first day of the Santa Clara event.

Neural network processors hold promise for computer vision, believes Jeff Bier, BDTI. His blog explains what work is needed for the scale of computation the industry expects.

Posing an interesting question, Carey Robertson, Mentor Graphics, asks what prompts the development of new tools. He blends this with helpful information about the newly launched Calibre xACT extraction tool, without too much “hard sell”.

What to do with wireless IP is asked and answered by Navari Nandra, Synopsys. He explains what can be done and how it can contribute to the IoT.

The SoC market is consolidating fast, says Rupert Baines, UltraSoC, on an IP Exteme blog. This poses two challenges that he believes licensed IP can simplify.

A common proposition is to move from Intel to ARM, and Rich Nass, ARM presents a well-rounded blog on how to make the transition, with some input from WinSystems hardware and software experts.

Forget consumer, the future of the IoT growth is in enterprise, reports Brian Fuller, ARM, observing analyst IDC’s webinar on which parts of the IoT will be lucrative and why.

Recalling the talk by Xilinx Fellow, Dr. Steve Trimberger, Steve Leibson, explains the three ages of the FPGA, with a link to a video on the history of the technology.
