    MOnSter 6502

    Just a bit of fun from yestertime. From the Mad Max world of the Maker Faire Bay Area comes The MOnSter 6502 I don't think it'll plug into a BBC micro and it would be a bit slow but just look at the blinking lights ;-) An ARM1 done this way would probably be a meter wide. More at the MOnSter 6502 project website

    WHITEPAPER: Reimagining voice in the driving seat

    The modern automotive cockpit is sophisticated and loaded with smart technologies; however, it has little value if the driver finds it difficult to use. Existing smart in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) interfaces have greatly improved the cockpit experience, but voice to date has not delivered on its potential to bridge the gap between hands-free, in-vehicle control and safer driving. Motivation from users for in-vehicle...

    ARM Compliance Test Suite [BETA] for Server Base System Architecture and Boot Requirements now available

    In 2014, ARM and its partners came together and created the key to the success of ARM servers: the Server Base System Architecture (SBSA) and Server Base Boot Requirements (SBBR). These specifications require a minimum set of hardware and firmware implementations that ensure OSes and platforms interoperate. The latest versions are SBSA v3.1 and SBBR v1.0, they are available at developer.arm.com.

    Automotive electronics design is about to take a giant leap forward

    The trickle-down effect from increased government regulations and from car consumers’ embrace of electronics is far-reaching. These consequences challenge engineering teams more and more. Think about the shift from 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) to 32-bit devices. The shift is driven by increasing vehicle electronics-system performance requirements, and who doesn’t like better performance? But as...
