    Optimizing ARM Based Designs for Low Power using Emulation
    Published. November 19, 2012

    The month November goes to the Brits, no question. Not only did the James Bond movie Skyfall open, but Santa Clara also experienced somewhat of a "British Invasion" for ARM TechCon in the Santa Clara convention center. To be there properly I even brought out my favorite new pin striped suit ;). With that being at the cleaners now that ARM TechCon is over, I am reflecting on what I heard.

    Creating Custom File Systems and the Linux Loop Device
    Published. November 5, 2012

    A few weeks ago we had a crisis at our house. My son managed to delete the data from my daughter's USB memory stick. Not only did he delete it, but he did it in such a strange way I have no idea what he could have done. She was not too happy since all of her recent school work was on the memory stick. My best guess is that he deleted it by mistake, recognized what he had done, went into the recycle bin, but instead of restoring the files, tried to manually copy the files back to the stick...

    Running C++ AMP kernels on the CPU

    One of the FAQs we receive is whether C++ AMP can be used to target the CPU. For targeting multi-core we have a technology we released with VS2010 called PPL, which has had enhancements for VS 11 – that is what you should be using! FYI, it also has a Linux implementation via Intel's TBB which conforms to the same interface. When you choose to use C++ AMP, you choose to take advantage of massively parallel hardware, through accelerators like the GPU. Having said that, you can always use the...

    Building Open Virtual Platforms - Bridging the Gap of Model Availability
    Published. May 4, 2011

    Virtual prototypes promise to enable early software development, shorten system bring-up time, and provide a resulting increase in revenue. One of the key barriers that project teams face when considering use of virtual prototypes is the "missing model syndrome" -- essentially the lack of adequate pre-built IP to assemble into the prototype, and the challenges of creating those models themselves. Some providers have created libraries of models, but without a standard language...
