Intel just celebrated the start of its 50th year. For those who were not following closely in 1968, Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore founded Intel Corporation on July 18 of that year. That’s a year after the Summer of Love and … Read More → "The New, New Intel Unleashes a Technology Barrage"
Need programmability? Step right up my friends. In this week’s Fish Fry, we are investigating some of the newest and coolest applications using programmable technology today. Ted Marena (Microsemi) demonstrates how we can use PolarFire FPGAs in a machine-learning application and how this PolarFire FPGA-based board can also facilitate Linux and RISC-V development. Sunder Parameswaran (Falcon Computing) also joins us to discuss some really cool applications for FPGA … Read More → "Programmability’s Promise"
For two or three decades, there has been raging debate about the longevity and relevance of Moore’s Law. Is it dead? Has it changed? Is it slowly fizzling out? Was it a law or just a projection? Is it really about transistor density only, or something more conceptual? Did Moore really say “doubles every two years” or was it more like 18 months? Was Moore’s … Read More → "Re-interpreting Moore’s Law"
Signal integrity (SI) is the bane of most system designers. Getting those signals to pass intact through all the twists and turns of your design can be a maddening experience. But modern signal integrity design and analysis is the enabling soul of most of today’s high-performance systems. Cadence’s Sigrity tools are an industry leader in the signal and power integrity game, and the recently … Read More → "Sigrity Elevates 3D"
Intel announced last week that they are acquiring structured ASIC company eASIC into their Programmable Systems Group (PSG). If you haven’t been following along in your major merger primer, Intel PSG was formerly known as Altera – one of the two major players in the FPGA market. Altera has played second fiddle to Xilinx in the Duopoly Symphony for the past twenty seasons or so. This … Read More → "Intel Acquires eASIC – Why?"
