“…managed complexity”: Q&A with JC Ramirez, ADL Embedded Solutions
Benefits of adopting a holistic approach to the complex puzzle of managing performance, power and other factors for small form factor embedded vision applications
Editor’s Note: With a technical background that includes Navy nuclear plant supervision, nuclear instrumentation, semiconductor product development and embedded systems engineering, JC Ramirez, Director of Engineering at ADL Embedded Solutions, Inc. is well positioned to share with EECatalog readers his perspective on trends in the embedded small form factor space. “We have some exciting things we’re anticipating in the coming year,” Ramirez told us. “For example, we’ll be taking a CoaXPress card and a PC/104 form factor SBC and demo-ing 4k video at greater than 30 frames per second embedded vision to the military,” he went on. “That’s exciting being in early on the move to 4k for the military sector.”
Ramirez also described a recent surveillance use case (see side bar). Edited excerpts of our conversation follow.
