Our blog focuses on sharing our experience and knowledge across a wide range of technologies and industries including hardware and software design, audio, video, internet of things, mobile application and signal processing technologies.
It used to be that storing and retrieving vast amounts of video data was quite challenging. Now, Amazon Kinesis Video offers capabilities to cost-effectively process streaming data at any scale, completely simplifying video and audio data storage.Details
An FPGA is like an older gate array, but the metal interconnections between the gate array logic elements are replaced by SRAM fabric that is infinitely flexible and doesn’t wear out. This fabric allows you to use the same FPGA to implement a myriad of digital circuits. Explore FPGAs and how to address their challenges like reprogramming the SRAM every time you power up.Details
As we continue to adjust to the new normal of life during the coronavirus pandemic, we can now begin to draw conclusions about how our lives will be different after we return to work, specifically how the pandemic will change how we use technology.Details
While generic IoT platforms sound like a great idea, the problem is these “one-size-fits-all” platforms tend to only deliver about 60% of a typical IoT solution. By the time the remaining 40% of the problem is solved and productized, the solution has actually evolved to a bespoke application for that customer.Details
Mentoring high school students through innovative and educational mentor-based programs like FIRST enables Cardinal Peak engineers to inspire the STEM workers of tomorrow.Details
Tesler’s passing caused a few of us to reflect on how computing has evolved into two separate categories: engineers and everyone else — and the cut/copy/paste function is an outstanding example of this separation.Details
Thanks to infrastructure as code (IaC), sysadmins and other IT pros are able to manage and provision their IT infrastructure (networks, virtual machines, load balancers, connection topology, etc.) through text files that look like code, rather than physical hardware configuration or interactive configuration tools.Details
The Cardinal Peak book club provides the opportunity to dig deeper into specific product engineering topics, refresh knowledge in areas our staff might not have investigated in a while and explore subject matter in which other employees are experts.
Right now, the club is focused on “Operating Systems: Three Easy Pieces.” Also known as OSTEP or “the comet book,” this academic text focuses on three conceptual pieces that are fundamental to operating systems: virtualization, concurrency and persistence.Details
