Java brewing in embedded with targeted virtual machine
By Curt Schwaderer, Editorial Director
Embedded Java development can be challenging at first, but more and more virtual machines (VMs) are being developed and supported specifically for running Java on embedded platforms, making these challenges easier to overcome.
Greener power requires smarter grids
By Markus Staeblein and Kripa Venkat, Texas Instruments
An intelligent power network will support more extensive generation of energy from renewable sources, with a safer and more efficient energy grid for generations to come.
Three ways to improve PCB design productivity and predictability with hierarchical interface-aware design capability
By Hemant Shah, Cadence
Design authoring has traditionally involved working with busses or bundles, with a single-level hierarchical definition of a group of signals. This process, however, doesn't result in a fast or easy way to connect interfaces.
Industrial panel PCs make manufacturing smarter
