UAS payloads, radar best bets for military electronics market

John McHale, Editorial Director

"Uncertainty" best describes the current outlook for the U.S. military market, with the next president's positions still somewhat unclear, as is the nation's future defense outlook.Regardless of inertia or doubt in Washington, military program managers and industry engineers must continue to keep the current defense electronics systems in air, ground, and sea platforms running efficiently to ensure continuing military readiness. Moreover, key radar, unmanned, electronic warfare, and other systems must still be modernized. All of…

Managing COTS obsolescence for military systems

Sally Cole Senior Editor

The short life cycles of commercial components create many obsolescence headaches for military electronic-system designers as they try to integrate these high-performance devices into air, ground, sea platforms that must last for decades, that have long system development cycles, and time-consuming testing procedures. As the military looks to leverage more open architectures and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology, the challenge of managing the obsolescence that comes with COTS will only become more difficult.

A go-to embedded solution

Stephen St. Amant, PC/104 Consortium President

There was a time when I watched the cooking competition television show "Chopped" somewhat regularly. It's an intense ingredients-based culinary challenge that pushes chefs to their limits under strict time constraints. Amidst the nearly endless food combinations available to the contestants, it seems as though every episode I watched included one person (and sometimes two or three) who used mascarpone cheese. Often in the dessert round, the chef's storytelling voiceover (dripping with tension) would recount,…

ARMed and ready

Ross Bannatyne VORAGO Technologies

While the rest of the engineering world has been developing embedded systems using the ARM microcontroller unit (MCU) architecture for many years, the high-reliability (hi-rel) market has been slow to adopt it. That is a pity because the biggest benefit of using an ARM-based microcontroller is the ease of development that ARM offers, by virtue of the large supporting ecosystem of tools.

PC/104 architecture maintains relevance in a competitive field

Rory Dear, European Editor/Technical Contributor

PC/104 is into its third decade, standing the test of time, while myriad form factors of yesteryear have faded into irrelevance. So why is PC/104 so persistent? How has it survived? The simple answer for me is the tireless work of the consortium that lies behind its continued success. A collaboration of companies with a common vision, it was formed in 1992 with 12 members but now has almost triple that. The PC/104 Consortium ensures…

FPGA coprocessors for acceleration of shape recognition algorithms in hybrid VPX HPEC systems

Thierry Wastiaux Interface Concept

To reach the level of performance requested by the latest military specifications, electronic warfare (EW) systems designers rely more and more on VPX high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) platforms. To handle the global IP traffic growth - predicted to reach 132 exabytes (EB) per month in 2018, according to Cisco's Visual Network Index - electronic systems must manage the data flow in and out of the semiconductor devices. Designers of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have developed…

White Paper: COM-Based SBCs: The Superior Architecture for Small Form Factor Embedded Systems

Staff, Diamond Systems Corporation

Embedded systems designers are under pressure to reduce the cost and size of electronics while improving time-to-market and overall system reliability. Today, many designers achieve these goals by using off-the-shelf x86 single board computers (SBCs) with I/O modules stacked above or below to implement the special-purpose I/O that makes the embedded system fit the application requirements. An alternative to this traditional approach is to use a Computer-on-Module (COM)-based SBC.
