Summer Interns 2013

Our interns have worked on a variety of projects ranging from chip design, embedded systems design, and web application development. They have done a splendid job and learned a lot along the way. We would like to wish them the best in their studies and future careers.

Interns on Radio

One of our interns, was recently interviewed in a special programme on Malaysia’s leading business radio station – BFM. The interview is on an internship programme in Malaysia, which the intern was a participant, and their experiences. You can listen to the interview in the podcast. You can find out…

AEMB Benchmarked

A recent Masters of Science project from TU Delft did some comparison and benchmarking of various open source microprocessors including the AEMB. They compared it against several architectures including the LEON3 (SPARC V8), Plasma (MIPS) and others. They found that in terms of the speed and resources, the AEMB emerged…

AEMB in China

Seems like there are two important pieces of news to report: that the AEMB has made in-roads into China; and that the AEMB is capable of booting uC/OS-II. According to the information provided at a Chinese website, a Chinese university (Shandong University of Science and Technology) has successfully implemented an…

AEMB Powered OpenBTS

The OpenBTS project is an exciting project. The OpenBTS project runs on GNU Radio hardware, which is why it excites – the USRP2 has the AEMB as its core processor. OpenBTS is an open-source Unix application that uses the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) to present a GSM air interface…

AEMB Powered OpenPattern

The AEMB has recently been selected as the core processor for the OpenPattern OMRP platform. The OpenPattern project designs a modular routing platform using an FPGA. The target is to create a new network router that can be used for mesh wifi networks, as an alternative of ISP home-gateways and…

AEMB Powered GNU Radio

The AEMB has been selected as the central control processor for the next-generation GNU Radio project. GNU Radio is a collection of software that when combined with minimal hardware, allows the construction of radios where the actual waveforms transmitted and received are defined by software. What this means is that…
