Renesas Electronics Corp. has launched a new family of microcontrollers (MCUs) targeting secure, scalable Internet of things (IoT) applications with an open software platform enabling customers to develop IoT endpoints with a wide range of partners or leveraging existing legacy software platforms.
Autonomous vehicles are clearly in the spotlight. The computer power that’s required to make this a reality is enormous, but thankfully we’re nearing that point. Before such vehicles actually hit the streets in a mainstream kind of way, there’s a key point of contention – security. The number of bad things that can occur in an autonomous vehicle comprise a lengthy list, so the security needs to be sorted out ASAP.
Arm CEO Simon Segars said that the company is adding a new feature to its processors that will allow system-on-chip (SoC) makers to design custom chips by adding their own instructions for specific embedded IoT applications.
Karamba Security, a world-leading provider of embedded cybersecurity for connected machines, today announced a collaboration with Winbond Electronics, a leading global supplier of semiconductor memory solutions and a pioneer in certified secure memories, to enhance embedded software security in automotive and other connected industries. OEMs and tier ones use Karamba’s embedded cybersecurity solutions for connected systems to protect their software and reduce vulnerability exposures. Under the new partnership, Karamba will offer enhanced hardware security with the use of Winbond’s secure memories.
Renesas has launched a family of Arm Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M4 microcontrollers with comprehensive security features, aiming them at IoT applications – particularly end-point and edge devices in industry, building automation, metering, healthcare and home appliances.
IBASE Technology unveils the EC-7100 built with the high-performance NVIDIA GTX 1080 graphics card equipped with 2560 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR5X memory and up to 9 TFLOPS capability.
