Freescale Semiconductor Inc.
unveiled a pair of new communications processor platforms this week, and said
that it is already partnering with suppliers to provide embedded software for
the new products.
The two new
platforms, part of the company's QorIQ
processor lines, include 64-bit and quad-core products. Markets for the new
platforms include high-end control and data plane applications in aerospace and
defense, robotics, routers, switches, networking, enterprise storage and data
customers find it difficult to move to 64-bit because it's an investment for
them," said Katie Butler, a product marketing engineer in Freescale's
Networking Systems Div. "Having an ecosystem of third-party software simplifies
new processors, introduced at the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) held in
Orlando this week, will include the single-core 64-bit P5010, the dual-core
64-bit P5020 and the quad-core P3041. The QorIQ 64-bit platform features the
company's e5500 core, which is said to deliver twice the performance of
Freescale's earlier e500 core, reaching frequencies up to 2.5 GHz.
vendors at FTF this week said they would supply development tools and operating
systems for the P5010, P5020 and P3041 platforms.
providing the foundation elements that allow them to develop and execute the
code," said Dan Mender, vice president of business development for Green Hills
Software Inc., which offers tools for code cogeneration, execution and debug
for the QorIQ family. "This delivers a part of what's required to take people
to 64 bits, or from single-core to multi-core."
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
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.
