When Gaming Technology Plays for Keeps
 
General-purpose graphics processors (GPGPUs), designed originally for game systems, can provide space- and power-efficient parallel image processing capability for UAVs and other platforms carrying embedded systems. In this video blog entry, an applications engineer from GE Intelligent Platforms explains how a four-core ARM processor implementation coupled with 192 CUDA-enabled GPU cores can replace the functionality of a 3U or 6U VPX processor module and consume one-seventh of the power.

TI Intros RTOS for Its MCU Platforms
 
Texas Instruments is now offering a real-time operating system that runs on ARM Cortex-M4 microcontrollers and C2000 dual-core C28x + ARM Cortex-M3 microcontrollers. The company says that by providing its own RTOS, it frees developers deploying the covered processors from the need to write complex system software, such as file system, schedulers, drivers, and protocol stacks.

Authenticator Tag for Wireless Data Transfer
 
For applications requiring bidirectional secure authentication, Maxim has introduced a transponder chip with an SHA-256 engine and an SO/IEC 15693 and ISO 18000-3 Mode 1-compatible RF front-end. The chip requires no power supply, as it is powered by the RF field of the reader. The device can act as master or slave, and is designed for applications such as access control, asset tracking, and medical sensor authentication and calibration.

Connecting to a Connected World
 
The Internet of Things (IoT), machine-to-machine (M2M), and Industry 4.0 all have two things in common — embedded computing capability and connectivity. But in the environment defined by these concepts, connectivity spans the spectrum from individually IP-connected sensors, to board-to-board, to vehicle-to-infrastructure. All of this connectivity requires some dedicated processing power, and this piece at embedded-computing.com offers a primer on connectivity and the various interface choices available.
