Using Open Source Designs to Create More Specialized Chips

Collaborating on freely available code enables companies and programmers to pool resources to solve common problems and avoid reinventing the wheel. Companies build competing products and services from these open source foundations that they might never have been able to build otherwise. But the...

The Last Barrier To Ultra-Miniaturized Electronics Is Broken, Thanks To A New Type Of Inductor

In the race for ever-improving technology, there are two related technical capabilities that drive our world forward: speed and size. These are related, as the smaller a device is, the less distance the electrical signal driving your device has to travel. As we’ve been able to cut silicon thinner,...

A Primer on Nvidia-Docker — Where Containers Meet GPUs

Traditional programs cannot access GPUs directly. They need a special parallel programming interface to move computations to GPU. Nvidia, the most popular graphics card manufacturer, has created Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA), as a parallel computing platform and programming model for...

Postage-Stamp Linux

We’ve come a long way from the early days of big iron, and few things demonstrate that better than Microchip’s new SAMA5D27. What’s a SAMA5D27, you ask? It’s a postage stamp that runs Linux. Well, not literally a postage stamp, but a fully realized microcontroller that measures about 1½ inches (...

GPUs on Google’s Kubernetes Engine Are Now Available in Open Beta

The Google Kubernetes Engine (previously known as the Google Container Engine and GKE) now allows all developers to attach Nvidia GPUs to their containers. GPUs on GKE (an acronym Google used to be quite fond of, but seems to be deemphasizing now) have been available in closed alpha for more than...

First Linux-Based RISC-V Board Prepares for Take-Off

It’s been two years since the open source RISC-V architecture emerged from computer labs at UC Berkeley and elsewhere and began appearing in soft-core implementations designed for FPGAs, and over a year since the first commercial silicon arrived. So far, the focus has primarily been on MCU-like...
