Tales of Voice Recognition

Towards Cleaner Audio… Or… Not?

by Bryon Moyer

Five or so years ago, motion was getting all the MEMS and sensor love. Everything was about inertial sensors and what you could do with them to keep from getting lost.

Well, times have changed, and the flavor-of-the-month has changed with it. I noted recently the focus on audio at last fall’s MEMS Executive Congress, and, in the months since then, the industry seems to have doubled down on that focus – especially when it comes to voice recognition.  Read More

Safety and Security Conference

posted by Dick Selwood

With the growth of the IoT there is increased interest in the overlapping areas of safety and security. There is already a lot of knowledge on these issues and this has been shared by the IET's International System Safety and Cyber Security Conference. The eleventh version of this conference is running from 11—13 October 2016 in London. (14-Sep)

An Interesting – And Challenging – Take on Tech

posted by Bryon Moyer

I ran across a series that deals with some of the less-touted possible outcomes of the technology work we do. It’s actually a few years old, but, while edgy and possibly challenging for some to watch, I also found it thought-provoking. (1-Feb)

CyrilJ,

You're links are broken.

Also, Microsemi's THREE separate software suites are INCONSISTENT with Linux support.

What is FAR worse?

An 8-way time division multiplexor to "fairly share" memory between 6 processors and 2 DMA channels -- no priority accesses to starve another channel, no contention based allocations, just straight channel 1 gets only time slot 1, ch…

Now you might say that no one would be that stupid as to pack all accessed data into a single subchannel. With the number of sub-channels being 2^n (where n is 1, 2 or 3), it's also pretty likely that the underlying data structure to be processed will hav…

@Karl -- sure multiple banks/channels can offer concurrent read/write, or even multiply sourced reads/write -- but each channel still has the native single access or burst fill performance timings.

Now look at the last three figures above, where Cadenc…
