E-letter May 2015
Simplifying the design of complex imaging systems
By Pleora Technologies
Explore the design, cost, and performance benefits of real-time video transmission over Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0.
Multichip package memory enabling next-generation Internet of Things connectivity in automotive
By James Malatesta, Micron Technology, Inc.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has created new requirements for memory in space- and resource-constrained applications that are adding connectivity where little to none existed before. In particular, the advent of the IoT is driving the use of multichip package (MCP) memory solutions in verticals such as automotive, where the ability to stack non-volatile memory (NVM) and volatile memory (RAM) into a single package is helping reduce footprint, lower ball count, improve performance, and ease design implementation for a range of applications in the connected car.
Auto industry highlights: Innovation in green, smart, and safe
By Curt Schwaderer, Editorial Director
All industries are innovating to become smarter and more efficient. The auto industry is no different. The auto's journey to smarten up can be seen in the vision, challenges, and solutions of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
How design and verification technologies can ensure functional safety of automotive SoCs
By Adam Sherer, Cadence Design Systems
Functional safety is critical for the automotive systems-on-chip (SoCs) that are the technology backbone for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), infotainment equipment, and other in-car systems. However, meeting the various safety standards can be time-consuming and labor-intensive, involving voluminous amounts of data that changes as the standards evolve.
Five keys to securing the IIoT data pipe
By Brandon Lewis, Assistant Managing Editor
Industrial systems have traditionally had connectivity at least at some level, so why with the dawn of the Industrial Internet (or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)) has security now become such a poignant issue?
Autonomous driving: In research and on the road
By Monique DeVoe, Managing Editor
The automotive industry is inching closer and closer to getting autonomous driving on the road. There have been impressive demonstrations, such as Delphi's Roadrunner car that completed a 3,400-mile autonomous test-drive in April, and Tesla Motors will soon have autonomous driving features in cars that are actually out on the road today. A partnership between the University of Waterloo and Nuvation Engineering is exploring the next steps of autonomous driving in research and in a practical business sense.

Ethernet - 40G to 400G: Interview with John D'Ambrosia
By Brandon Lewis, Assistant Managing Editor
With Ethernet speeds advancing past 40G to 100G and higher, designers of systems such as AdvancedTCA (ATCA) meticulously follow activities in the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet subcommittee for any indicators on the future of backplane-based systems. In this interview with John D'Ambrosia, IEEE P802.3bs Chair, Chairman of the Ethernet Alliance, and Dell's Chief Ethernet Evangelist, he discusses the development and deployment of the recently released 100GBASE-KR4 and -KP4 specifications, as well as the beginnings of IEEE work on 400G Ethernet and beyond.
