The migration of a powerful parallel GPU architecture along with a compatible software platform and computing model into a low-power ARM multicore SoC, promises to bring a range of capabilities into the mobile and embedded arena that have so far not been possible.
Military and aerospace embedded computing customers are increasingly embracing GPU technology for applications—such as radar, sonar and ISR (intelligence, surveillance,Read More...

TECHNOLOGY IN CONTEXT
by Tom Williams, Editor-in-ChiefThe Compute Unified Device Architecture from NVIDIA has enabled supercomputing levels of graphics and numeric processing on desktop and rack-mount systems. Now it is moving to a new class of mobile processors and enabling huge new levels of performance.
TECHNOLOGY IN SYSTEMS
by Matt Saunders, Silicon LabsThe choice of RF and MCU solutions in today’s market is vast. But when time is taken up front to establish what is really required from the MCU and RF components in an embedded design powered by harvested energy sources, it becomes clear that one size does not fit all.
Wireless Energy Harvesting Opens Market for Devices on the Internet of Things – and PLM Helps it Grow
BY Marlee Rosen, Rosen AssociatesAs many “things” on the Internet of Things become smaller, more mobile and even wearable, they proliferate in the billions. The opportunities are immense, but in a world market with hugely diverse suppliers and users, an appropriately scaled product life cycle management system is essential.
BY Brian Phillippi, Product Engineer, National InstrumentsRather than try to create control systems by integrating disparate parts, which then must be configured, tested and separately programmed, engineers would do better to start with an integrated high-performance platform and then concentrate on creating innovative solutions in software.

by Sri Kanajan, SRI Ventures, Shrirahng Khare, Persistent Systems, and Richard Jackson, BiolaseAndroid is quickly becoming the de facto standard for companies that want to build mobile applications. This is especially true for medical device companies that need a mobile device OS that has a rich set of supported hardware and can be ported across multiple devices with ease.
