EE Journal - Embedded FPGA ASIC Design

Embedded Technology Journal and FPGA Structured ASIC Journal are now in EE Journal

EE Journal - Embedded  FPGA ASIC Design
 
"The first year of a new publication is always exciting, but Embedded Technology Journal first year has been nothing short of stellar. We began, of course, with modest-sized audiences mulling our strange stories about putting tiny little computers into toasters and such. "

Embedded Technology Journal - EE Journal

"People pondered processors, studied software, meditated about memories, brushed up on busses, wrestled with RTOS, and fumbled with FPGAs. We covered applications ranging from smart phones to avionics and touched on some truly unique systems like golf radar and digital scarecrows."

A Four-Way Vehicular Radio Module

Redpine Signals is placing a bet. It might have been less of a bet a year or two ago, but things change, and the future isn’t as obvious as it once might have seemed.

What we’re talking about here is wireless communication between vehicular on-board units (OBUs) and other OBUs, as well as with roadside units (RSUs) and pedestrians.
