Microcontrollers have moved beyond their commodity roots in the 8-, 16-, and even 32-bit architectural realms and are now delivering world-class embedded performance as multiple cores are fitting into single MCU packages. Freescale Semiconductor’s Ray Cornyn, the company's vice president and general manager for automotive microcontroller products, will explain the options this new technology offers for design engineers. In a chat moderated by Design News senior technical editor Charles Murray, Cornyn will discuss which applications can benefit from multicore, how multicore affects power budgets and costs, what multicores can bring to safety critical applications, and how software development has to advance to keep up with the new complexity. As always, Design News Radio will focus on providing prescriptive information for listeners intent on applying the new technology in forthcoming applications and products.

Do you see a perfectly good design and still insist on changing it? You might be an engineer.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
Perhaps you didn't know that there are a variety of classes, both live and archived, offered via the Design News Continuing Education Center (CEC) sponsored by Digi-Key? The best part – they are free!
Engineer comic Don McMillan explains the fun engineers have with team-building exercises. Can you relate?
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
