3D DRAM created by IBM and Micron, 128GBps memory on the way

Smaller and faster RAM with up to 128GBps transfer speeds could be on the way thanks to research from IBM and MIcron. The companies have developed three-dimensional memory, stacking individual DRAM chips vertically that would normally have to be placed side-by-side, though the efficiencies gained aren’t solely down to space. Communication between the stacked chips …

A Comparison of Hard Real-Time Linux Alternatives – Interrupt Latency

We’ll be covering the interrupt latency of the hard real-time Linux alternatives. The interrupt latency is the time that elapses when an interrupt begins to where the interrupt source is serviced. Depending on the microprocessor design, interrupt masking, interrupt controllers and the OS’ interrupt handling, the latency can be affected. This work was done as …

World’s First NativeDSP Linux Port

Softier has produced the first implementation of Linux that’s usable on a single-core digital signal processor (DSP). The company mentioned that its technology performs real-time encoding/decoding of DVD quality video at 30 frames per second while simultaneously being able to run Linux software on the side. The C54x DSP is the name of the DSP …
