Zynq detects pedestrians; ARMv8-A explained; Product development demands test; Driving connectivity; Celebrating Constellations; Chip challenges
The helpful Michael Thomas, ARM, advises readers that there is The Cortex-A Series Programmer’s Guide for ARMv8-A available and introduces what is in the guide for a taster of the architecture’s features.
The Embedded Vision Summit gives many bloggers material for posts. The first is Steve Leibson, Xilinx, who includes a video Mathworks presented there, with a description if a real-time pedestrian detector running on a Zynq-based workflow, using MathWorks’ Sumulink and HDL Coder.
Another attendee was Brian Fuller, Cadence, who took away the secrets to successful product development, which he sums up as: test, test, test. (He does elaborate beyond that in his detailed blog, reviewing Mike Alrdred of Dyson’s keynote.
Anticipating another event, DAC, Ravi Ravikumar, Ansys, looks at the connected car and the role of design in intelligent vehicles.
Also with an eye on DAC, Rupert Baines, UltraSoC has a guest blog at IP-Extreme, and praises the Constellations initiative, with some solid support – and some restrained back-slapping.
Continuing a verification series, Harry Foster, Mentor, looks at the FPGA space and reflects on how the industry makes choices in formal technology.
A guest blog, at Chip Design, by Dr. Bruce McGaughy, ProPlus Design Solutions, looks at what innovative chip designs mean for chip designers. His admiration for the changing pace of design is balanced with identifying the drivers for low power design to meet the IoT portable phase.
Why do we need HDCP 2.2 and what do we need to do to ensure cryptography and security? These are addressed, and answered, by VIP Experts, Synopsys, in this informative blog.
