SmartNIC Architectures: A Shift to Accelerators and Why FPGAs are Poised to Dominate

>> Electronic Design Resources.. >> Library: Article Series .. .. >> Topic: System Design .. .. >> Topic: Communication.. .. .. >> Series: Have SmartNIC – Will Compute Generic network interface cards (NICs) are built around a single application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) engineered to be an Ethernet controller. Good examples of these are the ConnectX line by Mellanox, the Broadcom NetXtreme, or the Xilinx XtremeScale. Often, these chips are further optimized around a second design objective; for example, the ConnectX…

Mizzou Engineering Adds Four New IT Certificates

Those wanting to becoming tech savvier now have more options. Mizzou Engineering’s Information Technology program will offer four new IT certificates this fall. And students can complete the IT certificates entirely online. Students can earn a certificate independent of a degree or along with a bachelor’s program. Anyone can apply. High school seniors wanting to dual enroll in college classes. Current students who want to add IT skills to their undergraduate program. And professionals looking to advance their knowledge in…

Mitigating a 754 Million PPS DDoS Attack Automatically

On June 21, Cloudflare automatically mitigated a highly volumetric DDoS attack that peaked at 754 million packets per second. The attack was part of an organized four day campaign starting on June 18 and ending on June 21: attack traffic was sent from over 316,000 IP addresses towards a single Cloudflare IP address that was mostly used for websites on our Free plan. No downtime or service degradation was reported during the attack, and no charges accrued to customers due…

Lung, immune function in kids could protect from severe COVID-19 — ScienceDaily

Differences in lung physiology and immune function in children could be why they are more often spared from severe illness associated with COVID-19 than adults, according to pediatric and adult physicians at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) and Baylor College of Medicine, who teamed up to investigate the disparity. The perspectives paper was recently published in American Journal of Physiology-Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology. According to the paper, only about 1.7% of the first 149,082…

Denso to Evaluate TriEye’s CMOS-Based SWIR Camera for Vehicle Imaging

Multi-processor systems-on-chip (MPSoCs) are increasingly becoming the hardware offering of choice among embedded-systems designers. Driving this trend are market demands for increased performance and capacity, lower power consumption, and lower bill-of-materials (BOM) costs. The consolidated hardware and subsystems increase the complexity of the associated embedded software, including the ability to address subsystem hardware isolation features like safety zones that make multicore enablement and use even more challenging. Emerging from these technological advances is the concept of mixed safety-critical systems. A…

Sandboxing in Linux with zero lines of code

Modern Linux operating systems provide many tools to run code more securely. There are namespaces (the basic building blocks for containers), Linux Security Modules, Integrity Measurement Architecture etc. In this post we will review Linux seccomp and learn how to sandbox any (even a proprietary) application without writing a single line of code. Linux system calls System calls (syscalls) is a well-defined interface between userspace applications and the operating system (OS) kernel. On modern operating systems most applications provide only…

How to Increase Productivity of Employees – 5 Winning Tips

When it comes to the secret of success and how you can ensure your business is successful, there are many different answers you’ll get, but often it comes down to your employees themselves. With the right staff, it is truly incredible what a company can achieve. Each employee brings with them a set of skills, knowledge, experience, and advantages that the company can use to be productive and successful. Of course, it doesn’t always happen like a fine-tuned machine; there…

Blueprint for building a three-in-one measurement tool to study quantum materials — ScienceDaily

It images single atoms. It maps atomic-scale hills and valleys on metal and insulating surfaces. And it records the flow of current across atom-thin materials subject to giant magnetic fields. Scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a novel instrument that can make three kinds of atom-scale measurements simultaneously. Together, these measurements can uncover new knowledge about a wide range of special materials that are crucial for developing the next generation of quantum computers, communications…

Designing for Voice: Building Trust in Ambient Intelligence

For almost a half-century, the development of Ethernet has moved inexorably in one direction—faster. When Robert Metcalfe co-invented it with his team at Xerox Palo Alto in the 1970s, Ethernet had an initial speed of 2.94 megabits/second over coaxial cable. In 1980, the original 10 Mbit/s standard was published with an additional option: twisted pair copper cables. Fast Ethernet (100Mbit/s) debuted in 1995, followed by Gigabit Ethernet in 1998. Today Industrial Ethernet has reached 400 Gbit/s, and true terabit speeds—exceeding…

Using digital twins for knowledge transfer

Future Work Lab: augmented and virtual reality applications enable cost-effective planning and a faster way to adapt production systems in the event of disruptions on the shop floor. Credit: Fraunhofer IAO/Ludmilla Parsyak Gathering with customers and colleagues at meetings, events, workshops and seminars and collaborating with them in person has always been important—but it is not an option for the foreseeable future. The coronavirus pandemic is forcing us to find new ways of working together. The Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial…
