There’s a Processor in My FPGA!

Altera's OpenCL SDK allows software programmers to use the FPGA's fabric as easily as they use the processor cores. The same code that runs on an SoC also runs on the largest parts. Altera is also committed to having an SoC in each family so the Stratix 1…

Go-Fast FPGA Design

I'd add "Make room for heatsinks." Especially if you're packing the whole FPGA with logic and cranking up the clock, you will need help taking the heat from the chip. I've never regretted allowing extra room for a big heatsink, including board-level mou…

A Self-Sufficient Sensor Node

It sounds like, for the most part, you're taking issue with the electret. If a different harvester were used with the same PMIC (assuming voltage compatibility), would that address the concerns?

While I don't want to speak entirely on Imec's behalf, my…

Be a Better Programmer

"Spend like a drunken sailor" If only. Anecdotal evidence is that even the few hundred dollars for Lint is too much. A Green Hills presentation at ESC some years ago, told of asking a programmer what would improve his life. He said a second screen for hi…

Fermilab experiment will attempt to answer whether we actually live in "the Matrix"

I believe that since most things break down into quanta,there is a definite granularity, so thus a design, and hence hologram-like for a better word. -Lee Studley

Cheap Chips

Dick, thanks for the brilliant overview.

I think the ASIC route is often disregarded for a couple of reasons:
For Digital the cost is not really known and the forum is missing to help there.
For analog the trust factor comes in.

We are representi…
