    Intel rising in embedded systems

    Slideshow: Intel rising in embedded systems

    LONG BEACH, Calif. – Intel is in and DSPs are history when it comes to single-board computers and embedded systems, according to vendors at the recent Embedded Tech Trends 2013 show here.

    Most of the dozens of vendors who spoke to EE Times were longtime PowerPC and Freescale customers. Most were increasingly adopting the x86 while rolling out their first products with ARM and Atom cores. Most saw a rise in the need for communications in embedded markets, but generally at data rates of a gigabit/second.

    A handful of vendors are pushing into Ethernet and Infinband at 40 Gbit/s rates. These board makers were also driving into high performance apps using general-purpose graphics processors (GPGPUs) from AMD and Nvidia. Some are even starting to talk about a new category of embedded supercomputers.

    Meanwhile DSPs have been on their way out of embedded boards. Increasingly they are being replaced by FPGAs at the high end and x86 chips with their latest SIMD instructions in other markets.
