Achronix Accelerates Today’s Data Center

PCIe Board Brings Power-Efficient Networking Performance

by Kevin Morris

We’ve talked a lot in these pages about the battle for the future of the data center. FPGAs, we say, represent the path to enlightenment, the power panacea, the key to breaking the energy-hungry tyranny of the von Neumann architecture. Apparently, we are not alone in this line of thinking. Intel, for example, plunked down about sixteen billion votes in favor of an FPGA-based future by acquiring Altera. Xilinx joined a cadre of companies looking to crack Intel’s longstanding dominance of the data center by devising standards to facilitate open-architecture attacks on Intel’s proprietary fortress. Someday, the thinking goes, FPGAs will pave the path to Moore-esque improvement in the energy efficiency of computing, despite the demise of Moore’s Law itself.  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)

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)
