Oculus Rift Takes Home The Crunchie For Best Hardware Startup

As has been said many a time, Hardware is hard. Though the barrier to entry is lower than it’s ever been, the creation of new hardware is still a field that most don’t enter.

It makes sense, then, that the competition here was incredibly fierce. Oculus’ fellow nominees in the category: 3D Robotics, SmartThings, Sonos, Square.

Electric cars are ready for the big time and if you disagree you're wrong

Existing electric cars with ranges of around 100 miles and charged at home without the need for complex and costly new infrastructure are already good enough to replace a large chunk of the conventional combustion car market.

Why Human-Computer Teams Hold the Most Promise for the Future

Computer systems that run programs capable of learning (either from their own mistakes or from relationships established by analyzing vast amounts of data) are part of the growing field called cognitive computing. Although some people are worried that intelligent computers will develop into autonomous networks, like the infamous Skynet in the “Terminator” movies, and take over the world, Anup Varier believes that future belongs to teams of humans and computers working together.

Audi Patents Details Active Aero Wheels, Electric Quattro All-Wheel Drive System

The patents are for “active” aerodynamic wheels and an electric all-wheel drive system. The patent for the wheels shows a hinged flap between the spokes that move over the spokes of the wheels as speed increases. Once fully deployed, the hinged flaps create a flat wheel surface, reducing drag.

ARM Announces Octacore Cortex-A17, MediaTek Airs Early Design

ARM Holdings Plc is pushing hard for chipmakers to switch to the 64-bit ARMv8-A instruction set to help it with its fledgling server market push. As a result it appeared to temporarily freeze 32-bit releases, funneling useful technology into 64-bit cores -- namely the Cortex-A53 and A57.

Apple CEO Tim Cook Compares Android to Europe, Says Google Wasn’t “Committed” to Motorola

But Cook didn’t stop there; he went on to compare Android to Europe.

Android is like Europe. Europe was a name that somebody came up with for Americans who didn’t understand that Europe was a lot of countries that weren’t like U.S. states. They were very different. Android is many things. How many people who use a Kindle know that they’re using Android? And you see what Samsung is doing by putting more and more software on top. I think it’s night and day. The compare is so off.

Foxconn Is Quietly Working With Google on Robotics

Foxconn has long been associated as the partner for Apple, assembling the majority of the U.S. company’s iPhones and iPads.

But few people know the Taiwanese contract manufacturer, also known as Hon Hai Precision industry, has been quietly working with Google.

People familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that Foxconn has been working with former Android executive Andy Rubin since last year to carry out the U.S. company’s vision for robotics.

  • Embedded Processor Selection Using FPGA-based Profiling
    Fadi Obeidat* and Robert H. Klenke**
    * Intel Corporation, Austin, TX, USA
    ** Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia, USA


    In embedded systems, modeling the performance of off-the-shelf processors is very important to enable the designer to estimate the capability of each candidate processor against the target application. Considering the large number of available embedded processors, the need has increased for building an infrastructure by which it is possible to estimate the performance of a given application on a certain processor with a minimum of time and resources. This paper presents the use a Xilinx MicroBlaze softcore processor ...

The International Conference on
Engineering of Reconfigurable Systems and Algorithms

July 21 - 24, 2014, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

You are invited to submit your paper and/or proposal of dedicated sessions, tutorials, workshops, demos, and panel discussion sessions for consideration

ERSA’14 consists of two parts:

  • ERSA Academic Section
  • ERSA Industrial Section

The scope of ERSA covers broad area, from simple applications on programmable logic to complex, intelligent, high-performance, embedded systems implemented as multicore systems and heterogeneous parallel processing systems. All these complex systems involve reconfigurability on software and/or hardware level.

ERSA explores emerging trends and novel ideas in the area of parallel, reconfigurable, high-performance, heterogeneous computing systems architecture, design methods and applications. ERSA is promoting multidisciplinary research and new visionary approaches including bio-inspired architectures, computational biology, physics etc.
