3E-Enhanced performance, Energy Management and increased End-user value with digital DC/DC converters

Ericsson Power Modules has recently introduced a comprehensive set of products that establish an innovative approach to the goals of end-user value, flexibility and system performance. These new products contain several unique concepts spanning several disciplines in circuit and system design, all focused on optimizing performance, flexibility and value for the end-user. Ericsson Power Modules refers to the high level end-user benefits of this product approach as "3E". Read more in this white paper.

System Verilog & OVM: Mitigating verification challenges and maximising resusability

This white paper from Applied Micro looks at the challenge of verification – a nightmare for engineers with the increasing requirements and complexity of the design – and mitigating the complexity of a verification environment with the increasing complexity of design verification. System Verilog, along with its library of classes – OVM, provides a platform to face this challenge.

Long term storage of electronic components

Long term storage, particularly of last time buy components, has been proposed as one solution to the problem of component obsolescence. The Alter Technology Group is in a unique position to report on this concept and advise the best way to manage long term storage and eliminate associated reliability problems.

Counterfdeit components and acoustic microscopy

This white paper from Alter Technology Group considers how the encapsulants used by semiconductor manufacturers may be identified and changes or variations detected - and will look in detail at encapsulants, and the potential hazards to system reliability. The paper explains the principles of CSAM and illustrates how these are applied in nondestructive testing, failure analysis and how the CSAM compliments radiographic or x-ray inspection. The limitations of CSAM are also reviewed. The paper also describes the results of Alter UK's research to date into plastic encapsulants and suggests how this work may be taken forward in the fight against counterfeiters.

Software configuration management for embedded systems developers

Embedded systems developers face complex versions of the problems that confront most software developers. Choosing a robust SCM system can help by enabling the management of large and complex file sets, supporting distributed development, and helping to manage intellectual property risk. In fact, the right combination of SCM system and best practices can help any embedded development project progress quickly and smoothly.

The real solution to fake parts

The high tech supply chain is more vulnerable to counterfeit components than ever before. With increasingly sophisticated criminal, the only way to protect the supply chain is through tool, technology, and new thinking about industrial aftermarkets. This white paper from Verical looks at securing supply chains through data transparency and better market design.

Transferring Data in Non-Networked Applications

Nexus (GB), the UK partner of portable data token manufacturer Datakey Electronics, has released this white paper. The new release covers considerations such as data transport, choosing portable memory, functionality, environmental considerations and product life cycle.

An Integrated SIGINT Digital Receiver/Processor System Solution

This paper describes a notional Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) solution that can be integrated utilising a high performance digital receiver and a high performance Digital Signal Processing (DSP) engine. System Integrators can reduce their risk and achieve superior performance by basing their design on this proven combination of hardware.

The CHAMP-AV6: Maximising Performance with Minimal Porting Effort

This paper presents information from a benchmark prepared by Gedae Inc. which compares the relative performance of the CHAMP-AV4 Freescale Power Architecture MPC7447A Digital Signal Processor and CHAMP-AV6 Freescale MPC8641D Digital Signal Processor running a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) application.

Pilatus PC-21- the ideal trainer aircraft for the 21st century

Imagine a new type of trainer aircraft for the twenty-first century. One that adapts to a student's requirements, transforming its' console to match that of the type of aircraft the training calls for. Read how Pilatus Aircraft Ltd., with Curtiss-Wright Controls, has made this ideal new teaching platform a reality.

ATOM processor technology white paper

Orchid Technologies Engineering & Consulting (OTEC), a developer of custom electronics product solutions, describes the ATOM processor technology core design, and how it can combine custom electronic hardware with an ATOM processor core. The result is a highly integrated circuit board solution customised for a range of application needs.

Delivering the ultimate user machine relationship

Today's high-profile consumer electronics appliances – from games consoles to smartphones and MP3 players – are designed from the very beginning with the user experience in mind. The quality of the overall user machine relationship (UMR) is absolutely critical to delivering competitive advantage and is one of the key factors in driving sales: in fact, for many consumers, the user interface is the device.
