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)"
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)"
FPGAs have amazing capabilities when it comes to accelerating performance-critical algorithms at a tiny fraction of the power it would require to run them in software. The marriage of FPGAs with conventional CPUs could provide a truly remarkable high-performance computing platform. However, the problem has always been how to program one of these awesome FPGA+CPU … Read More → "OpenCL on FPGAs: Accelerating Performance and Design Productivity"
When it comes to our hardware engineering projects, we need to keep our design data well organized. In the software world, this is accomplished with the help of version control systems. Unfortunately, most of us don’t learn version control for hardware design. In this episode of Chalk Talk HD Amelia chats with Ben Jordan of Altium … Read More → "Effective Version Control for Electronic Design"
Do you find that FPGA design flows can get a bit confusing and difficult to manage? What we really need is an integrated design environment that will help us keep our design activities organized. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Satyam Jani from Aldec about integrated design environments (IDEs) for FPGA design, why FPGA … Read More → "Integrated Design Environment for FPGA"
In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia gets into the guts of display technology with Aaron Behman of Xilinx. From the newest standards to the details of 4K2K, we will tell you how FPGAs are uniquely capable of meeting the extreme performance and power challenges posed by current and emerging video standards.

You may think you know all the options for FPGA design, but Microsemi’s new SmartFusion2 breaks a lot of rules. The latest, souped-up version of the popular SmartFusion family is much bigger, faster, and more capable than anything the company has produced before, and may change the game in mid-range FPGAs. In this episode of … Read More → "Introducing SmartFusion2 FPGAs"
Today, the cool kids aren’t using discrete components for power anymore. Nope. They’re using power modules. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Rich Nowakowski and Kevin Beals (Texas Instruments) about power modules, and why they’re the best solution for a wide range of design projects. Click The Link Below to Download The … Read More → "Value of Power Modules"
In today’s electronic design world, analog is an increasingly important part of just about everything we do. A lot of FPGA designers, growing up in an all-digital world, have developed a bias towards digital design – we call it “digotry”. Well, there is really no place for “digotry” anymore. Luckily, Xilinx is helping us stamp out “digotry” … Read More → "Xilinx Agile Mixed Signal"
Doing RF with digital CMOS processes can be tricky. If you’re adding things like vehicular WiFi to your next design, it can be even trickier. You need the right IP and process support to get the results you want. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia Dalton chats with Fayyaz Singaporewala (GLOBALFOUNDRIES) and Mats Carlsson (Catena) … Read More → "GLOBALFOUNDRIES RFCMOS Solutions and Catena WiFi Solutions"
