What is EMC testing?

Testing of products under EU guidelines to ensure they don't either pollute the air waves or are susceptible to them is known as EMC testing. If a toaster either emits a lot of electromagnetic noise and upsets other electronic devices, e.g. your mobile phone, or it is unduly susceptible to noise emitted from another device, e.g. a call on your mobile phone causes the toast to 'pop up' when the bread is still white, the toaster is likely to fail EMC testing.

The positive impact of supply chain visibility on design-to-cost

Design decisions have an accumulative impact on the life cycle cost of a product. Choices made during this phase can contribute as much as 70% to the overall cost. Employing a sound design-to-cost methodology, backed with a real-time and accurate view of cost implications, empowers design teams to initiate preventive action that avoids costly supply chain surprises downstream.

Designing Firewall/VPN with the PowerQUICC III MPC8572E

This white paper from Freescale Semiconductor is the first of a series of white papers on using the MPC8572E to design different types of security equipment including firewall/Virtual Private Network (VPN), Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)/Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), anti-virus/anti-spam/content filtering and Unified Threat Management (UTM)/Integrated Services Router (ISR).

FPGA design security

The reprogrammability of FPGAs makes them a very attractive option for system design when compared with ASICs, which have a high development cost. In this paper, Florence Beaujean, applications engineer at Lattice Semiconductor, focuses on design security issues.

Embedded system design considerations

Embedded systems see a steadily increasing bandwidth mismatch between raw processor MIPS and surrounding components. This white paper from Xilinx examines some of the factors contributing to this.

Altium's Innovation Station

An introduction to the Altium Innovation Station. It includes an overview of the Innovation Station, the role of Altium Designer and the Desktop NanoBoard, FPGA and embedded project creation, targeting a design for the Desktop NanoBoard and more.
