Security and Safety

Not Independent Considerations

by Bryon Moyer

Security and Safety: they would seem to be separate system considerations. Security is the flavor of the year, with everyone belatedly signing on to its importance (even as Yahoo announces another BILLION accounts hacked). Safety, on the other hand, is generally relegated as an issue to those systems that can cause harm. That’s traditionally been military and aerospace, largely; we can now add self-driving (or even driver-assisted) cars to that august community.  Read More

How Does Scatter/Gather Work?

What is FAR worse?

An 8-way time division multiplexor to "fairly share" memory between 6 processors and 2 DMA channels -- no priority accesses to starve another channel, no contention based allocations, just straight channel 1 gets only time slot 1, ch…

Now you might say that no one would be that stupid as to pack all accessed data into a single subchannel. With the number of sub-channels being 2^n (where n is 1, 2 or 3), it's also pretty likely that the underlying data structure to be processed will hav…

How Does Scatter/Gather Work?

Posted on 02/20/17 at 12:37 PM by TotallyLost

@Karl -- sure multiple banks/channels can offer concurrent read/write, or even multiply sourced reads/write -- but each channel still has the native single access or burst fill performance timings.

Now look at the last three figures above, where Cadenc…
