The Need For Speed

The Next Generation of Networking with Speedster22i

by Amelia Dalton

It's pitch black. Green lights flash on the horizon. A steady hum pulsates through the alkaline air. Move carefully my friends, we’re in the center of the universe and it’s bound to get a little hot. This week’s Fish Fry is headed to the land where power reigns supreme and the lights are always on: data centers. Robert Blake (CEO - Achronix) joins Fish Fry to discuss the multi-layered relationship between field programmable gate array technology and data centers, what the new Achronix PCI accelerator card is all about, and a little bit about innovation in companies big and small. Then, keeping with our data center theme, we investigate how Google is using their DeepMind AI to keep their data centers cooler.  Read More

A More Secure Time Server

posted by Bryon Moyer

Time servers allow us to track multiple events from different systems and networks with a consistent time base. But an evildoer can flood such servers with requests, causing crashes. Microsemi has released a new time server that addresses this vulnerability. (13-Jan)

Rumors Intel Altera Deal is Close

posted by Kevin Morris

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)

Parallel processing isn't new, despite the marketing hype. It's been a fundamental part of computing, especially niche application computing, for nearly 50 years, with the limit's clear set from the beginning with Amdahl's law and Gustafson's law.
