Mars, methodologies, and mastery of embedded development

 

In the recent edition of Military Embedded Systems, Larry Lapides of Imperas, gives insights into work at JPL in the 70s and was there when the Viking landed on Mars. He writes about semiconductors, design teams, software releases, and simulation... and of course safety, securityand extra-functional features...

New MIPS I7200 Processor Core Delivers Unmatched Performance and Efficiency For Advanced LTE/5G Communications And Networking IC Designs

MIPS

Highly efficient parallel processing, fast response to real-time events, and 50% performance gains position the I7200 as the core of choice for high performance embedded applications

Santa Clara, Calif. – May 1st, 2018  MIPS, provider of the widely used MIPS processor architecture and IP cores for licensing, today announced the I7200 multi-threaded multi-core processor, a new high performance licensable IP core in their midrange 32-bit product lineup. Class-leading efficiency is essential to power sensitive applications such as the high bandwidth modem subsystems in Advanced LTE Pro and upcoming 5G smartphone SoCs, as well as networking ICs, and other applications. The I7200 delivers 50% higher performance in less than 20% area increase than the previous generation from MIPS.
