    Clock-throttling isn\'t the answer: Innovative thermal design supports real-time military application needs

    Clock-throttling isn't the answer: Innovative thermal design supports real-time military application needs

    Rick Neil (General Micro Systems)
    The extended temperature requirements of many military applications often mean slowing down the clock of a hot CPU. Clock-throttling of today's powerful processors works against military users' needs for high performance, but reliability and size/weight requirements of typical systems leave them few...

    Ethernet switches: Smarter than you think

    Charlotte Adams (Abaco Systems)
    Ethernet switches are so fundamental to our connected world that they sometimes get taken for granted. Attention focuses on splashy end products - like weapons systems and the gee-whiz applications that drive them - rather than on the lower-level components that actually make the applications work.
