Keeping commercial "off-the-shelf"
Smooth open standards roadmaps and interoperability are they key to the increased longevity and usability of deployed ecosystems such as the AdvancedTCA and CompactPCI, both of which are evolving to faster/more robust systems without compromising equipment already deployed in the field.
A view from the Summit
Joe recaps November's Advanced/MicroTCA Summit, introduces MicroTCA.4, and says goodbye to an old friend.
The longevity business model: Success typically implements great technologies, rather than as an end in themselves, as a means of furthering a larger, great idea.
AdvancedTCA and the "Law of Accelerating Returns"
What comes after 40G for AdvancedTCA. How are we going to go faster? We know we must.
AdvancedTCA turns 10
A decade ago, an informal PICMG meeting gathered several telco manufacturers looking to focus on core competencies. Today that meeting has evolved into a near billion-dollar industry – not a bad birthday present, AdvancedTCA.
A case where "new" happens in threes
Three recently ratified or soon-to-be ratified specifications, MTCA.3, CompactPCI Serial, and Intelligent RTM are creating new opportunities in the PICMG-compliant marketplace.
Reaching the summit
Joe comments on recent research finding AdvancedTCA will be the fastest growing segment of the embedded computer market.
There is a better way
Partial happiness about the recent spate of 40G announcements
Joe notes that PICMG technical committee work on bringing 40 Gbps speed to AdvancedTCA has captured the interest of more than one author in this issue.
Go wireless, young man!

In Memory of John J. Peters
The embedded community mourns the loss of John J. Peters of Performance Technologies, without whom many embedded system achievements would not exist.
