More Cores in Store

Posted by J VanDomelen

At the heart of most mil/aero electronics—and arguably the most important component of current electronics systems is the processor. Virtually all mil/aero electronics take advantage of processors of one sort or another, whether x86, powerPC, RISC, FPGA, 32-bit, or 64-bit. Many different types of processing devices are employed by the modern warfighter, in fact. Today’s soldier, fed up with being made

Multicore COTS for Mil/Aero

Posted by J VanDomelen

J VanDomelen

Processors are rapidly advancing the state of the art in the commercial world, and the mil/aero community is anxious to reap the benefits of the technology. Moore’s Law, which states that the number of transistors placed on an integrated circuit will double every two years, has taken on a slightly different look and feel as we are reach the physical limits of transistor density in a single core. We

Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger

Posted by J VanDomelen

J VanDomelen The mil/aero community is beginning to turn to current bleeding-edge computing technology, and move away from lengthy design cycles that result in fielding technology that is often four to five, or even 10 years, behind the commercial curve. The network-centric battlefield—in which the right information is delivered to the right person at the right time—is starting to take shape, and it requires secure, … Read More

Memorial Day

Posted by J VanDomelen

J VanDomelen I remember well a touching story a colleague told me years ago. It was about her grandfather, who—despite his duties as husband, father of five, and the household breadwinner—joined the U.S. Army to fight, and risk his life, in what would become World War II. He thankfully returned home safely to re-join his wife, kids, and mother, albeit lacking a fingertip or two. He didn’t just live. He returned … Read More

The Tables Have Turned

Posted by J VanDomelen

J VanDomelen DoD Apps Store in our future? I have noticed at recent industry conferences and exhibitions a predominant focus on software, marking a larger seachange in the military and aerospace industry. Case in point: ESC 2010 in San Jose. ESC was always the venue at which I, as a mil-aero systems architect and geek-of-all-trades, could roam exhibit aisle after aisle looking at hardware. Tangible chips and boards, … Read More
