TECHNOLOGY IN CONTEXT
Marc Couture, Mercury Systems
Some of the current usage trends of fabric in some of the more sophisticated HPEC systems indicate the need to consider the pros and cons of fabric-oriented technical attributes along with the associated driving commercial technologies.
There is no shortage of compute engine types available to high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) systems. However, just as one wouldn’t use a single element from the periodic tableRead More...

TECHNOLOGY IN CONTEXT
Peter Thompson, GE Intelligent PlatformsVPX does not dictate the choice of serial fabrics, but embraces many of them and leaves the choice up to the board vendor or system architect. There are many choices available, each with strengths and weaknesses, and the most appropriate will often be determined by the demands of the application.
Standardizing APIs across Fabric Interconnects Speeds Development and Performance in Multifabric Systems
Girish Shirasat, Concurrent TechnologiesCommercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) board interconnect technology is currently in a state of transition, where the once dominant parallel bus form factors like CPCI and VME are giving way to new high-speed serial interconnect-based form factors like AMC, VPX and VXS.
Brant Ku, ADLINK TechnologyHandheld industrial grade terminals, similar in form and function to commercial tablets, are increasingly becoming the user interface of choice for a growing number of industrial applications where mobility and real-time data integrity are vital.
Art Lee, ViosoftInvestigating the practicality of using OpenCL to accelerate AES and DES Encryption and Decryption by leveraging the GPU engines of the APU, reveals a realm of possibilities for exploiting parallelism on hybrid processors.
