Cypress Tames Two-Headed Monster

M4 + M0 Equals More

by Jim Turley

What would you do with 104 I/O pins, two CPU cores, two 8K caches, a touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, four AA batteries, and a gaggle of analog components? You may be about to find out.

Cypress has upgraded its programmable system-on-chip (PSoC) family of flexible microcontrollers with a new dual-core, security-enhanced, low-power family it calls PSoC 6. It’s the first dual-core chip from Cypress, and the first to use ARM’s Cortex-M4 processor. Previous generations of the PSoC used either the M0, the M0+, or the M3. So, upgrading to the M4 core is a step up, and adding an M0+ is a step-upper.  Read More

A More Secure Time Server

posted by Bryon Moyer

Time servers allow us to track multiple events from different systems and networks with a consistent time base. But an evildoer can flood such servers with requests, causing crashes. Microsemi has released a new time server that addresses this vulnerability. (13-Jan)

Rumors Intel Altera Deal is Close

posted by Kevin Morris

The NY Post reported today that sources told them that an Intel/Altera deal was close, and could be done by the end of next week. At the same time, we are hearing from multiple Altera customers who are opposed to the deal. (28-May)

Intel/Altera Agreement (Partially) Tells the Tale

posted by Kevin Morris

We did a lot of speculation in our recent articles about the rumored Intel bid to buy Altera. One of the areas of most intense speculation was the 2013 agreement the two companies signed - for Intel to manufacture 14nm FPGAs for Altera. More than two years after that deal was signed, Intel is rumored to be making an offer to buy Altera for upwards (maybe far upwards) of $10B. But, is the existing 2013 agreement potentially weakening Intel’s bargaining position? (4-May)

Thank you for great article! It really helps to understand QoS levels nuances!

Could you please describe does MQTT somehow specify what should happen if PUBCOMP missed in case of QoS 2?

I would be curious as to whether Xilinx has made arrangements with third party vendors to have chip antennas ready to go with these parts.
