Chalk Talk Powering Stratix V FPGAs (Made Easy)

Getting the right power to your FPGA has gotten a lot more complicated, but it doesn’t have to mess up your day or cut into your golf time.  In this episode of Chalk Talk HD Amelia chats with Jordon Inkeles (Altera) and Sharad Khanal (Linear Technology) about pairing Altera’s Stratix V FPGAs with Linear Technology’s power modules for … Read More → "Powering Stratix V FPGAs (Made Easy)"

Chalk Talk Verification Methodologies (Made Easy)

Most FPGA designers don’t know much about formal methodologies for verification. It’s too bad, because today’s complicated FPGA designs can really take advantage of standardized methodologies like UVM. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia and Jerry Kaczynski (Aldec) are going to unscramble the anagrams and get you on your way to understanding and harnessing the power of … Read More → "Verification Methodologies (Made Easy)"
