COTS Signal Processing for Radar and Electronic Warfare Systems

Many of the feats accomplished by modern military radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems are enabled by commercial technology -- from the signal processors to FPGAs, to analog to digital converters and digital to analog converters, to the board and system level. Cognitive EW and multifunctional systems that marry radar and EW processing capability in one box are some of the innovations fueled by these open architecture and commercial-off-the-shelf designs.

Sorting Out Sensors, Software, and Processing for Automotive Safety and Autonomous Drive

Active safety systems (and eventually, autonomous vehicles) rely on a range of technologies to ensure safe, reliable operation, including radar ICs of various frequencies, LiDAR units, high-resolution 360 camera systems, and more. Powerful processors/electronics control units (ECUs) and sophisticated software algorithms are also required to fuse these data inputs in real-time so that drivers (and cars themselves) can make split-second decisions that could prevent accidents.

Analysis and Development of Safety-Critical Embedded Systems and Software for Automotive Applications

More than 60 percent of a new vehicle's cost comes from its advanced electronics and software systems. Since many of the human-machine interface (HMI) functions guided by these electronic systems are mission-critical, it's essential that all automotive systems work together with complete reliability.

High Precision and Accurate Sensing at Any Flow Rate

There are challenges in achieving high precision and accurate sensing at low to high flow rates in metering applications such as flow meters as well as distance measurement and level detection applications. Ultrasonic sensing technology is outstanding at measuring flow velocity and using an integrated analog-to-digital converter (ADC) provides the ability to accurately measure flow even at the lowest rates.

Powering the Industrial Internet of Things - Class 3 of "Designing for Safe Power Systems 101"

Don't confuse the Internet of Things (IoT) with the Industrial IoT (IIoT), which typically has much more stringent characteristics. That's because the IIoT usually involves some sort of manufacturing, robotics, or other mission-critical application, where down-time can be measured in dollars, often lots of them.

Too Hot to Handle: Enabling Efficient Thermal Management in Military Electronics

Commercial processors and FPGAs promise and deliver performance advantages for military communications systems, sensor applications, radar, and electronic warfare programs at a lower price point than custom-designed systems. But to accomplish that performance they must generate a lot of heat and even with power-saving techniques added by the chip manufacturers the thermals still are too high for use in military battlefield systems.
