Imagination Technologies - IoT Internet of Things

What is the Internet of Things?

     

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging market trend impacting semiconductor devices, system OEMs, cloud service providers, and internet infrastructure companies. The trade press, accompanied by the types of companies mentioned above, has spilled a lot of ink on the subject, but this is typical in an emerging market with evolving requirements. For the […]

Back to the future: 64-bit MIPS CPU explores the origins of the solar system

    

A few months back I reported on the MIPS-based Mongoose-V chip guiding the New Horizons probe in its quest to reach Pluto. The story captured the headlines of many publications and generated many questions about the MIPS architecture (more on this in a separate article). Today I’d like to focus on another important space mission […]

Multiple secure VMs provide separate security domains for different applications

New security technologies for connected embedded devices

     

Virtualization, security and trusted execution environments are all trending topics in the new age of ubiquitous connectivity. However, there is a lot of confusion over how these technologies work together and their role in the overall mobile and embedded computing ecosystem. Luckily, Mike Borza, CTO of the Synopsys-owned Elliptic Technologies has published an extremely insightful whitepaper […]

Imagination, TSMC IP platforms - SoC IP (0)

Imagination, TSMC collaborate on a wide range of IoT subsystems

     

If you look at the semiconductor landscape today, the number of companies that have the ability to design advanced SoCs is shrinking rapidly. Industry consolidation/verticalization and rising manufacturing costs are creating an environment where true differentiation is difficult to achieve using generic solutions. In addition, integrating high performance CPUs, GPUs, coherent fabrics and other hardware […]

OS bring up virtual platforms-2

OS bring up using virtual platforms

   

Larry Lapides, VP of sales at Imperas, joins us to talk about OS bring up on MIPS using virtual platforms. We met Imperas recently at the 2015 Imagination Summit in Santa Clara where the company was demonstrating the latest version of QuantumLeap, a parallel simulation performance accelerator. Linux has become the general purpose operating system […]
