By-wire applications rely on electric motors to actuate a vehicle's brakes, steering, throttle or suspension. Automakers expect the technology to enable them to eliminate the mechanical linkages that now connect brake pedals to brakes, for example, or steering wheels to front wheels. Instead of mechanical linkages, by-wire systems will employ wires to deliver electronic messages directly to the brakes or steering gear. To make such systems work, however, automotive engineers said that they both need DSP capabilities (to handle the intense processing algorithms) and conventional MCUs (to handle interfaces, networking and control).

Parallel processing is a good way to trade silicon die area for power consumption. Two blocks doing the same task as one block, at half the clock frequency and at reduced voltage, can save power,” TSMC's Hu said. Also, we can substitute memory for processing power and communications bandwidth, and that can really save power. So you build lots of memory on-chip and use it to cache as much data as possible, and then you don't spend time and energy processing data or fetching it from off-chip.”

Strange as it seems to me now, like many readers I didn't really notice the column's passing. It was only recently when I was chatting to the guys and gals at the Tinkers Guild that I realized that I hadn't seen its familiar banner for quite some time. And of course, as soon as I realized that the Amateur Scientist was no longer with us I started to miss it dreadfully (isn't that always the way of things)?
