Plunify Cloud-powers Xilinx

As FPGA designs have gone from manageable to humongous, the demands on design tools and design tool expertise has risen exponentially. Long gone are the days when an applications engineer could waltz into your lab, click a few magic keys on a laptop, and walk out an hour later, having helped you achieve timing closure on your problematic FPGA design. Now, FPGA tools demand massive amounts … Read More → "Plunify Cloud-powers Xilinx"

High Bandwidth, Modest Capacity

Aaaaand… it’s memory time again. I don’t keep up with every release of memory (who could keep up with that without dedicating their lives to nothing but that?), but here and there we have either technology or application angles to new-memory stories. So, in that vein, we address memory in automotive and AI. Yes, two critical keywords in any tech article these days.Read More → "High Bandwidth, Modest Capacity"

The Perception Connection

Hello LiDAR, my old friend. I’ve come to sense with you again. This week’s Fish Fry is all about the what, where, and how of LiDAR technology. Jun Pei (CEO – Cepton Technologies) joins us to discuss the details of Cepton’s Micro-Motion platform and how perception is key to the advancement of autonomous vehicle technology. Also this we check out how a new Kickstarter campaign may change … Read More → "The Perception Connection"

Birth of the AI Machine

The dawn of artificial intelligence has ironically coincided with the dusk of Moore’s Law. Just as our collective engineering genius begins to wane on the task of exponential improvements in the performance and efficiency of von Neumann processors, those processors reach a point where they can do a rudimentary job on artificial intelligence applications. Apparently something in the cosmos either has a sinister … Read More → "Birth of the AI Machine"

Programmability’s Promise

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"
