Driving AI, ML To New Levels On MCUs


One of the most dramatic impacts of technology of late has been the implementation of artificial intelligence and machine learning on small edge devices, the likes of which are forming the backbone of the Internet of Things. At first, this happened through sheer engineering willpower and innovation. But as the drive towards a world of a trillion connected devices accelerates, we must find wa... » read more

Taking Security-By-Design To The Next Level


It’s hard to argue that the pre-eminent challenge before our industry today is security. While each sensational hacking headline gets readers’ attention, countless engineers and developers behind the scenes innovate security solutions every day to stay one step ahead of the hackers. At a high level, companies have begun to work together toward holistic solutions to complement their own s... » read more

Cutting The Cord: How Edge Intelligence Is Enabling The IoT To Go Where Cloud Can’t


In a world where data’s time to value or irrelevancy may be measured in milliseconds, the latency introduced in transferring data to the cloud threatens to undermine many of the Internet of Things’ most compelling use cases. Think of data as the fuel that powers our new decision-making engines – fail to get the fuel to the engines fast enough and the engine splutters and dies. Meanwhil... » read more

How to nail functional safety in your next design


As the automotive industry accelerates innovation toward fully autonomous vehicles, one of the underlying values of this effort will be safer roadways. Nine in 10 vehicle accidents are caused by human error. Work underway, and future innovation in autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles, should shrink driving fatalities by tens of thousands in much the same way that the introduction of seat bel... » read more

Containing Design Complexity With POP IP


About 25 years ago, Carver Mead, one of the pioneers of VLSI design, told a technical audience then grappling with the complexities of quarter-micron design that he could see an evolutionary path to about 130nm, but after that point, the picture blurred. Flash forward to the present and we’re manufacturing SoCs at 7nm, and the output is truly amazing devices powering applications we and Me... » read more

Open Throttle On Automotive Innovation


Like a race car accelerating out of a turn, the autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicle market is expanding faster than a lot of people expected. IHS Markit, for example, reported earlier this year that more than 33 million autonomous vehicles will be sold globally in 2040. The growth rate, IHS Markit suggests, is going to be torrid since the first year of significant volume for autonomous vehic... » read more

Pace Quickens As Machine Learning Moves To The Edge


Artificial intelligence applications are rapidly changing the way society engages with technology. It wasn’t too long ago that your smart phone couldn’t recognize your face or your thumbprint. It also wasn’t too long ago that Alexa wasn’t helping you navigate your day so easily. And not too long ago, odds are, you weren’t developing an application or device that had AI/ML as its ce... » read more

Five Features Of The ‘Always-On’ Mobile Experience


Today’s technology consumers – labeled as the ‘always on, always connected’ generation – are some of the most demanding when it comes to what they expect from their devices for work and play. Not only do consumers want devices that are able to manage their multiple demands on the go – from mobile gaming to video streaming – but they also want devices to work continuously without t... » read more

Seven Steps To Build A Successful IoT Solution


The technology sector is on course to produce a trillion connected IoT devices in the next two decades. As an innovator, you want to take advantage of this, but how and where do you begin navigating a complex world of hardware and software choices? The breadth of technology makes it easy for designers to build any kind of IoT solution at any scale across a continuum of applications. W... » read more

Cure The Common Cold…


The technology sector has no equal in the ability of its people to visualize what might be possible and then make it happen fast. If we were sorting out the common cold, the sniffles may already have been relegated to the past. Maybe that’s a claim too far but while imagining the future has always been a feature of our world I think we’ve gone into overdrive in the last few years. From a... » read more
