Embedded Platforms

Vineet, It just makes sense that embedded platforms would play a role in Next-Gen Designs. With chip-level integration and system-on-a-chip continuing to evolve, there is just a great opportunity to develop intelligent systems using these high performance building blocks and COTS solutions.  Thanks.

Also consider embedded wireless/M2M

Hi Vineet--interesting article and good focus on how much modular capability exists for embedded functionality.  You didn't mention it so I thought I would add that the wireless M2M space is offering lots of embedded capability, including modules with wireless chipsets, and ARM processor, and loads of I/O.  I touched on a few of these in a blog on a sister community to DesignNews called TheConnectingEdge.com:

Not every device needs a complete computer system, and it is always easier to implement function in software over complex hardware design. Embedded systems are here to stay. In fact, I just built a few products centered around microcontrollers. Although I could have done the same thing with a PC, having a standalone device offloads the work. I know a few engineers in the making, they say they have hardly faced embedded design in the college course path. It is a sad day.. This is why jobs are shipped out of the USA (and other places). C

Cabe, that's mind-boggling: that engineering students aren't doing embedded design. Do you mean as projects, or not even exposed to the entire topic?

Transient-voltage-suppression diode technology eliminates surges and enhances vehicle safety.
Industrial workplaces are governed by OSHA rules, but this isn’t to say that rules are always followed. While injuries happen on production floors for a variety of reasons, of the top 10 OSHA rules that are most often ignored in industrial settings, two directly involve machine design: lockout/tagout procedures (LO/TO) and machine guarding.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
While risk management sounds like one activity, in order to be conducted effectively, it must be broken down into three sub-components: risk assessment, risk monitoring, and response planning.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
