    Most modern, high-performance processors have special, on-chip hardware that monitors processor performance. Data collected by this hardware provides performance information on applications, the operating system, and the processor. These data can guide performance improvement efforts by providing information that helps programmers tune the algorithms used by the applications and operating system, ... View full abstract»

    Increasing numbers of automotive control systems are being designed as distributed systems, with critical functions linked by electronic communications. This includes X-by-wire systems, which seek to replace mechanical or hydraulic linkages with electrical or communications links. These systems raise a number of new challenges: Safety is a function of the whole system rather than any one system fe... View full abstract»

    Distributed embedded computer systems are the key enablers of X-by-wire systems and control system functions. While developers can validate the correct operation of the communication and operating systems and the silicon implementations - the basis of embedded computer systems - once and for all, they cannot validate the application-dependent software and data structures in these systems in the sa...

    The Rambus standardization skullduggery saga continues. SDRAM technology licensor Rambus sued chipmaker Infineon for patent infringement because Infineon refused to take a license under Rambus' patents. (SDRAMs are synchronous dynamic random-access memory chips. Instead of running asynchronously (like ordinary DRAMs), SDRAMs are refreshed by a synchronous system clock. By 1999, SDRAM had largely r... View full abstract»

    In the latter half of the past decade, the electronics business became a part of the telephone business. Quite unexpectedly, many parts of the electronics industry - particularly data switch makers - found their economic welfare tied to four decades of regulatory experimentation. In this experimentation, regulators wanted to develop competitors in various parts of the telephony industry. One catal... View full abstract»
