Chalk Talk Spartan-6 FPGAs in Video Designs

Video design is easy, right? A silicon press, a couple of coders and some lines of software, and you’re there, right? Well, not so fast. If your design requires intelligent processing of the video, keeping your performance high and your power low in your next video design can be a truly challenging task, but using … Read More → "Spartan-6 FPGAs in Video Designs"

If you read my post Who Put the Silicon in Silicon Valley? then you know my conclusion: Let's go with Shockley. He invented the transistor, came here, hired a bunch of young PhDs, and sent them out (by accident, not design) to create the companies, that created the compa...

All of the little details were squared up when the check-plots came out for "final" review. Those same preliminary files were shared with the fab and assembly units and, of course, the vendors have c...

As discussed in part 1 of this blog post, each instance of an Achronix Speedcore eFPGA in your ASIC or SoC design must be configured after the system powers up because Speedcore eFPGAs employ nonvolatile SRAM technology to store its configuration bits. The time required to pr...
