High Integrity C++ (HIC++) coding standard - for the production of high quality code

prqa140710Download a copy of the HIC++ coding standard, one of the longest established and most widely adopted coding standards for the C++ language. This major update (V4.0) now covers C++'11 advice and consolidates other current coding best practices.

This document defines a set of rules for the production of high quality C++ code. The guiding principles of this standard are maintenance, portability, readability and robustness. Justification with examples of compliant and/or non-compliant code are provided for each rule. Each rule shall be enforced unless a formal deviation is recorded.

This standard adopts the view that restrictions should be placed on the use of the ISO C++ language without sacrificing its core flexibility. This approach allows for the creation of robust and easy to maintain programs while minimizing problems created either by compiler diversity, different programming styles, or dangerous/confusing aspects of the language.

Achieving high-performance graphics and high energy efficiency for avionics systems


This White Paper is presented by AMD

To achieve new levels of graphics performance, designers of avionics systems are increasingly transitioning away from FPGA and DSP platforms in favor of more versatile, higher-performing embedded GPUs. These are optimized to handle high-speed multimedia processing as well as the massive parallel processing required for tasks like radar processing, object recognition, 3-D mapping and video manipulation.

Established leaders in this domain like CoreAVI and Curtiss Wright are working together to leverage the processing speed and power efficiency of AMD Embedded Radeon E8860 GPUs and open standard initiatives like OpenGL and FACE to break new barriers in cockpit electronics and display performance.

Protecting your R&D investment with secure authentication

By Scott Jones, Maxim Integrated

In the age of identity theft and faked IDs, achieving positive identification is of paramount importance. This is not only true for individuals, but also applies to electronic products. Manufacturers of nearly all equipment types need to protect their products against the counterfeit components that aftermarket companies will attempt to introduce into the OEM supply chain. Secure authentication provides a strong electronic solution to address this threat as well as additional useful end-product features.

This application note explains the concept of authentication and specifically Maxim's solution in the form of secure authenticators to solve application requirements including intellectual property protection, embedded HW/SW license management, secure soft-feature and status setting, and tamper-proof data storage.

Software-Defined Radio (SDR): rapid system developing, prototyping and integration


This webinar focusses on SDR rapid system development, prototyping and integration. It shows how to use a stand-alone system for rapid validation of designs by incorporating a kernel subsystem (IIO) for the converters. This eliminates the immediate necessity of expensive equipment. The seminar takes a dive in how to model a design - from MATLAB simulation onto hardware implementation and realization.

Industrial signal level data acquisition circuit optimized for fast channel-to-channel switching

This Circuit Note introduces a high performance industrial signal level multichannel data acquisition circuit that has been optimized for fast channel-to-channel switching. It can process 16-channels of single-ended inputs or 8-channels. As all "Circuits from the Lab" from Analog Devices, this reference circuit is engineered and tested for quick and easy system integration.


A single channel can be sampled at up to 1.33 MSPS with 18-bit resolution. A channel-to-channel switching rate of 250 kHz between all input channels provides 16-bit performance. The signal processing circuit combined with a simple 4-bit up-down binary counter provides a simple and cost effective way to realize channel-to-channel switching without an FPGA, CPLD, or high speed processor.

Digital-Filter-Design mit MATLAB für integrierte RF Transceiver


Dieser Webcast erläutert, wie MATLAB von Mathworks dafür verwendet werden kann, komplizierte Filter für drahtlose SDR-Systeme und -Komponenten zu entwerfen. Während der Präsentation wird ein Model der Analog Devices RF-Transceiver AD9361 und AD9364 erstellt, und zwar so, wie sie auf den SDR-Entwicklungsplattformen AD-FMCOMMS2-EBZ und AD-FMCOMMS4-EBZ integriert sind. Auf Basis dieses Models wird dann ein Filter für die internen FIR-Filter entwickelt.

Advanced power management helps bring improved performance to highly integrated x86 processors


This White Paper is presented by AMD

Complex heterogeneous processors have the potential to leave a large amount of performance headroom untapped when workloads don’t utilize all cores. Advanced power management techniques for x86 processors are designed to reduce the power of underutilized cores while also allowing for dynamic allocation of the thermal budget between cores for improved performance. Those with experience implementing microprocessors know the importance of proper power management. Whether for simple applications processors or high-end server processors, the ability to down-clock, clock-gate, power-off, or in some manner disable unused or underused hardware blocks is crucial in limiting power consumption.
