Compilers unlock RISC secrets. (compiler optimization key to RISC performance potential) (reduced-instruction-set computers; includes a related article on optimization to improve cache performance)
December 1, 1989... Compilers Unlock RISC Secrets RISC system performance embodies many components. In addition to the performance of individual instructions, the processor architect must consider how the instructions are combined by the compiler, how system vendors will construct the memory system, and how...
Who said the 80286 is dead? (Chips and Technologies and VLSI Technology offer highly integrated devices targeted at the Intel 80286 environment) (product announcement)
December 1, 1989... Who Said the 80286 is Dead? While the world awaits the latest offerings based on Intel's 80486 chip, some companies continue to focus on the high-volume market afforded by the 80286. AT-compatible chip sets offering high integration on one or two devices appear to be the way chip makers...
GaAs chip set transfers data - fast! (Gazelle Microcircuits' Hot Rod data interface chip set) (product announcement)
December 1, 1989... GaAs Chip Set Transfers Data--Fast! As computing power increases, so does the need to move data in larger chunks at speeds comparable to the fast, new processors emerging from the houses of Intel, Motorola, et al. With that in mind, FDDI would seem to be the answer. Fiber optics are...
Fast chips find imaging boards. (Wembley, England's, Oct Image Processing '89 showcases fast application-oriented boards)
December 1, 1989... Fast Chips Find Imaging Boards As off-the-shelf frame grabbers, array processors, and display controllers become commonplace, board-level vendors will need to distiguish their products in more vertical markets. Board vendors began to do just that at Image Processing '89, held in Wembley,...
Board market splits at EI East. (Oct 1989 Electronic Image East show; image processing board trends to modularity and niche products)
December 1, 1989... Board Market Splits at El East Pressure from system integrators demanding more application-specific imaging boards is forcing a division in the imaging market. Larger board-level vendors are remaining competitive by offering modular subsystems, while start-ups and less-established...
