Question: I am currently working on a team with an embedded soft core processor in an FPGA. We have been struggling to find a particular problem and there has been a lot of finger pointing between FPGA design and software design. Having some trouble getting some people to be willing to add code/hardware to "hack" the problem and get a better picture of what is happening. I believe EGO is getting in the way, some unwillingness to do this because the problem "can't" be there. Here come the people skills. Any suggestions on how to proceed without laying down the iron fist?
PTC will offer a virtual desktop environment for its Creo product design applications, potentially freeing engineers to run them from remote desktops on a variety of operating systems and mobile devices.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
