The element14 Tech Journal reflects on the evolution of new technologies and the latest trends in innovation.
In this issue of the element14 Tech Journal we'll look at the latest technologies and applications to utilize and support open-source technologies. For instance, the rise of Single Board Computers (SBCs) has exploded in the last couple of years thanks in part to the advances in ARM processor technologies. The IP and tools that are helping to enable this new breed of development platforms are giving designers a full spectrum of power and peripheral sets to choose from when bringing their designs to life. The rise in SBC adoption in the professional and DIY spaces has also spurred demand for associated technologies and accessories, from the latest connectivity options such as RFID to the new USB 3.0, to audio enablement including HD audio. In this issue, we cover the fundamentals that make these technologies come to life. Finally, we'll examine the workhorse of our industry – the 8 & 16-bit MCU. Understanding what the new 32-bit architectures offer will help you decide whether it's time to start riding the wave of new low power and high performance microcontrollers.
