Marketing Math 201

Up to 5x More Compelling

by Kevin Morris

Hello students, please take a seat. I’d like to welcome you to Marketing Mathematics 201. That’s right, compared with other “intro” classes, we have almost 2X the oomph, giving you an estimated 120% more learning with 3/7ths less homework energy expenditure.

If you’ll please look at your syllabus (which, by the way, is 28% shorter than last year’s, while packing in up to 500% more aggregated knowledge) you’ll see that we will have only four effective exams in the course this term (distributed across five discrete tests), reducing exam stress by an estimated 72 thermal units, while simultaneously increasing the accuracy of accomplishment measurement by a staggering 12 effective resolution bits.

Now, just a note before we begin. If any of you are on the “future FPGA marketing” career path, you’re in the wrong room. You’ll need to attend “Advanced Xtreme Marketing Mathematics 767+” on the top floor of the tower in the administrative building.  Read More

Rumors Intel Altera Deal is Close

The NY Post reported today that sources told them that an Intel/Altera deal was close, and could be done by the end of next week. At the same time, we are hearing from multiple Altera customers who are opposed to the deal. (28-May)

Intel/Altera Agreement (Partially) Tells the Tale

posted by Kevin Morris

We did a lot of speculation in our recent articles about the rumored Intel bid to buy Altera. One of the areas of most intense speculation was the 2013 agreement the two companies signed - for Intel to manufacture 14nm FPGAs for Altera. More than two years after that deal was signed, Intel is rumored to be making an offer to buy Altera for upwards (maybe far upwards) of $10B. But, is the existing 2013 agreement potentially weakening Intel’s bargaining position? (4-May)

You should note that Altera is using ALMs, not 6-input LUTs. ALMs contain 2x 4-input LUTs + some logic to fancy combine them + 2 dedicated adder-bits. (At least I assume that Stratix 10 uses the same type of ALM - I could not download meaningful documents…

Synopsys Hacked

What do you think about EDA break-ins such as what happened to Synopsys, and their implications for networked and cloud implementations?

Low Power, Wide Area

Posted on 11/23/15 at 8:59 AM by ErnyGilson

I want to know what are the narrow band transmitters and how i can build it.
What are its components?
Also what is IQRF and the LPWA? Are they any special transmission protocols?
What type of hardware is used in them?

Bassem - It's because they never came up in my research. Your note is my first hearing of them. I'll make a note to check them out. Thanks.
