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"

How fat does your pipe have to be before you start seeing things that aren’t there?
Or, to ask it another way, what’s the best interface for VR headsets? That’s the question that the Read More → "VirtualLink Removes Tangles from VR Goggles"

Deepfake video is here, now. With it comes the relatively easy ability to make anyone say anything you like on video. Post that video on the Internet and you have a very powerful way to disseminate credible disinformation to the world. … Read More → "Deepfake Video is Here. Reality is Fleeting."
I liked it so much, I bought the company. – Victor Kiam

How do you build a self-driving car? OK, wait, that’s too loose a question. How do you build a safe self-driving car?
A part of the answer involves what some see as the miracle answer to every problem we have now: AI.
Ross Freeman, co-founder of Xilinx, invented the FPGA in 1984. In the 34 years that have passed, FPGAs have been wildly successful and are certainly among the most important electronic devices ever conceived. But during that entire history, tracing the evolution of FPGAs from dozens of LUTs to millions, the FPGA has been the optimal solution for … exactly zero applications.
Don’t get me wrong. FPGAs do one thing … Read More → "Is AI the Killer FPGA Application?"
