Wouldn´t you like an integrated solution that makes developing broadcast infrastructure equipment easier and faster? Watch this new 9-minute video to learn about two development kits and reference designs that do just this.
Finite impulse response (FIR) and fast Fourier transforms (FFTs) are two of the most common digital signal processing (DSP) functions implemented in FPGAs. In this webcast, you’ll learn how the FPGA industry’s first variable-precision DSP architecture, available in 28nm Altera® FPGAs, is optimized for FIR and FFT implementation.
Design Made Easy With the SmartFusion Customizable System-on-Chip and State of the Art Software Tools
Since the early years of embedded processor design and FPGA design, silicon advancement and design techniques for each have evolved independently. In the real world there are many FPGA designs without embedded processors and many embedded systems that neither have nor need an FPGA. This leads to two very distinct design flows, styles, and engineering disciplines. The relatively recent addition of SmartFusion® customizable system-on-chip (cSoC) devices adds the complexity of analog into the mix.

Learn how Vivado® IP Integrator can be used to rapidly configure a Zynq® processor and connect it via AXI4 to a video accelerator running in the programmable fabric of the device. Using built in board aware design rule checks and designer automation, Vivado can greatly improve user productivity.
In the past decade, the size and complexity of many FPGA designs exceeds the time and resources available to most design teams, making the use and reuse of Intellectual Property (IP) imperative. However, integrating numerous IP blocks acquired from both internal and external sources can be a daunting challenge that often extends, rather than shortens, design time. As today's designs integrate increasing amounts of functionality, it is vital that designers have access to proven, up-to-date IP from reliable sources.

Consuming 50% lower power and delivering 20% lower cost than the previous generation, the new family is built with the right mix of programmability, integrated blocks for DSP, memory, and connectivity support. Virtex®-6 FPGAs are in production now. What are you waiting for?
Traditionally, portable system designers have used ASICs and ASSPs to implement memory interfaces, I/O expansion, power-on sequencing, discrete logic functions, display, and other functions. Cost limitations, power and cooling restrictions, and board space requirements often limit the use of PLDs in these applications. Today, however, innovations in CPLDs in power reduction, cost optimization, and small form-factor packaging allow PLDs to replace or augment ASICs, ASSPs, and discrete devices.
Looking for a cost-effective and efficient way to implement 4K and multi-channel video processing? As the world of video progresses to 4K and beyond, the need for higher performance and bandwidth makes system development more complex and expensive.
This white paper describes how to design an efficient polyphase and non-polyphase digital predistortion (DPD) feed-forward path solution with Altera® 28nm FPGAs, especially the Arria® V family of FPGAs. In addition, a resource usage and power comparison between different architectures is provided to facilitate design tradeoffs.
This generation of all programmable, cost-sensitive applications has reached new levels of sophistication and diversity of requirements. Low cost systems in the consumer, automotive, industrial, medical, and communications space may need a programmable logic device with high serial bandwidth, or for advanced processing, or may simply need bridging functionality and little else. Commonly termed the “low-end” market due to the devices’ relatively low cost and density, these platforms provide varying levels of system integration, performance, and power. They may perform critical tasks such as video analytics or packet processing, or simply expand a system’s I/O connectivity to peripheral devices.
