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…

Small and Fast

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. Their results show that in terms of the speed and size, the AEMB…

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…
