  • Regarding CPU speed (as opposed to transistor density) - its not truly the case that they aren’t getting faster. Its that they are getting faster in different ways. Check out the discussion of the LMAX Disruptor technology, capable of 6M TPS on commodity hardware using a single thread, and written in Java. It was very carefully crafted to minimize locking and accessing horribly slow RAM.

  • I needed the male connector as well. I believe that the Digi-Key part number for that is A35105-ND, but I haven’t received it yet to verify that it will fit in the PCB mount. The datasheet looks promising though.
