Xceler Systems: Graph Architecture

An inventor who made foundational contributions to three key ways we move data through complex systems is developing a new type of neuromorphic chip to accelerate AI applications. Rather than try to build a computer that looks like a brain, Gautam Kavipurapu and Xceler Systems are building smaller bits that act like synapses. When the design is advanced enough and there are enough of them, t... » read more

Mobile Edge Computing For The IoE

More attention is being focused on the edges of networks as the IoE begins taking hold. The reason is that the current wireless infrastructure is inadequate for handling the billions of endpoints that will make up the IoE. So for the IoE to realize its full potential, it will either require some sort of add-on infrastructure or a new discovery in physics. Edge networks were not always suc... » read more

Virtualizing Cloud Computing With Optimized IP For NFV SoCs

The growth in Internet traffic is impacting how cloud and carrier data center operators design their compute and data networking architectures. To meet the application demands for scale-out servers and networks, designers are implementing virtual environments such as Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to achieve higher efficiency and lower the cost and time of deploying the new applications.... » read more

Blog Review: Dec. 3

Mentor's Robin Bornoff zeroes in on some of the biggest and most frustrating causes of energy loss—the ones that have nothing to do with the intended task. In electronics, it's a question of how much power is consumed pushing around electrons and photons. Cadence's Richard Goering follows a panel discussion about whether we're really making progress in low-power design, where the challeng... » read more
