Modular Open Radio Frequency Architecture boot camp

Jerry Gipper Editorial Director

Designers creating the next generation of embedded defense systems face several challenges getting their solutions off the ground. The newly launched Modular Open Radio Frequency Architecture (MORA) aims to enable the development of true open standards-based radio frequency and microwave modules and small form factor subsystem designs to reduce costs, foster commonality, and enable new communications capabilities.

VITA Technology Hall of Fame 2016

Jerry Gipper Editorial Director

Lyman Hevle was the founding executive director of the VMEbus International Trade Association (VITA). He held that role from its inception in 1984 until 1993. During his career Lym was focused on the business and market growth of VMEbus. He passed away in January 2016, and his legacy will live on in the industry. Lym’s own words best describe his involvement with VMEbus and how he came to be the founding executive director of VITA. The following discourse is an excerpt from his autobiography.

Very high-speed sampling and serial ADCs in embedded systems

Thierry Wastiaux Interface Concept

Latest-generation active electronically scaled array (AESA) radar systems can have thousands of TX/RX modules. High bandwidth is needed to connect each array element data converter to the FPGAs that process incoming and generate outgoing data streams. New software-defined radio systems use advanced reconfigurable modulation schemes that increase channel bandwidths and deliver unprecedented wireless data rates. To increase the performance of software radio and electronic warfare systems, it has become critical to use efficient, low-power, low-pin-count, FPGA-connected converter interfaces.

FMC+ standard propels embedded design to new heights

Jeremy Banks Curtiss-Wright and Jim Everett Xilinx

The updated FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC+) specification has been developed and refined over the past year, promising unparalleled I/O density and backward compatibility. The VITA 57.4 working group has approved the spec and will present it for ANSI balloting in early 2016. The following article takes a closer look at this important new standard to see its implications for advanced embedded design.

Unmanned aircraft leverage PC/104, COM Express, and other small form factors

John McHale Editorial Director

Unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) continue to shrink in size, as do their payloads, requiring system designers to leverage small-form-factor, embedded-computing standards like PC/104, COM Express, and others.

White Paper: High-Speed, Real-Time Recording Systems (Third Edition)

Rodger Hosking Pentek, Inc,

In today's world of high-speed A/D converters operating in the gigahertz range, real-time signal recording has become a challenging task that requires specialized hardware and intelligent application software. When designing a real-time recorder capable of streaming sustained data to disk at rates of up to 3 GB/sec and higher, the system developer has to consider the limitations presented by the recorder's operating and file systems, the limitations of disk drive technology, the hardware interfaces, and the RAID controller technology.
