    Published. December 5, 2012

    TI India Educators' Conference - 2013 C.P. Ravikumar, Texas Instruments The churning of the ocean In the Hindu mythology, there is a story of the churning of the ocean. The Gods and the Demons knew about the nectar of life that lay hidden deep in the ocean. Anyone who consumed a drop of the nectar would be rendered immortal. To extract the nectar out of the depths of the ocean, however, the ocean needed to be churned. Discussions and debates are a lot like the churning of the ocean. There...

    Coupled-Form 2nd-Order IIR Resonators: A Contradiction Resolved
    Published. November 23, 2012

    This blog clarifies how to obtain and interpret the z-domain transfer function of the coupled-form 2nd-order IIR resonator. The coupled-form 2nd-order IIR resonator was developed to overcome a shortcoming in the standard 2nd-order IIR resonator. With that thought in mind, let's take a brief look at a standard 2nd-order IIR resonator. Standard 2nd-Order IIR Resonator A block diagram of the stan... read more...

    Full System vs Sub-system Virtual Prototyping
    Published. August 6, 2009

    There is a strong movement in the industry to move to create Virtual Prototypes of systems, prior to RTL coding. These Virtual Prototypes are being used for early software development and architectural analysis. Since there are typically many blocks in a design, the development of a Virtual Prototype can be unwieldy. While you might have a goal of creating one, you may be dazed at the number of components that need to be created or acquired (multiple CPU's, DSP's, MPEG engines, multiple memory...

    Creating the Zynq Virtual Platform, Including Errata
    Published. January 6, 2012

    Although I have never contributed any code to the Linux kernel, the headline We are all Linux developers now on linux today caught my eye. One of the things that amazes me is how many embedded products use Linux and how they deal with all of the complexity. Nearly every product has similar but different hardware, and keeping it all straight and shipping a product with working software in the dynamic world of Linux is impressive. As a virtual platform developer these details hit me every so often,...
