Blog Review – Dec 02

When everyone hits the shops, some bloggers want to see presents fall from the sky. This week there is also a sleek design project, new uses for SoCs, an Arduino project (with video) a hypervisor discussion and a summit review.

A Prototyping with FPGA Approach

In general, the industry is experiencing the need for what now has been started being called the “shift left” in the design flow. From a chip perspective, about 60% into a project three main issues have to be resolved.

ASIC Prototypes Take the Express Lane for Faster System Validation

The demand for shorter bring-up schedules and more efficient work flows are driving innovations by commercial providers of FPGA-based prototyping tools.

ASIC Prototyping With FPGA

Since the very early days of ASIC design engineers have prototyped the ASIC using FPGA devices in order to debug and verify the design. The advantage is that the Device Under Test (DUT) runs at speeds that are equal or nearly equal those of the actual device.

ARM Development Tools for Cortex-M Family: ARM facilitates hardware/software co-design

Traditional EDA vendors are late in supporting one side of the electronics industry: software development. Although much is being said about system-level support and hardware/software co-design, the work has been left to companies like Altera, ARM®, Xilinx and others to develop software development tools.

ARM Innovations and the Maker Movement: An interview with Dominic Pajak, Embedded Strategist

ARM®’s Embedded Strategist Dominic Pajak talks about the latest innovations and why Makers are choosing ARM technology.

The Evolution of TrustZone in an Insecure World

A fourth stage in the evolution of TrustZone® is a new market for security hardened apps.

Smart ARM MCU Steps Up without Compromise

European semiconductor company STMicroelectronics has announced sampling of the world’s first ARM® Cortex®-M7 based 32-bit MCU, the STM32 F7 series.

Why ARM makes development tools: Interview with Hobson Bullman

ARM® keeps to the core, building fundamental tools for everything in its line-up

Smart Bluetooth, Sensors and Hackers Showcased at CES 2015

Internet of Things (IoT) devices ranged from Bluetooth gateways and smart sensors to intensive cloud-based data processors and hackathons – all powered by ARM.
