Analog power has always been the standard. New digital power modules offer great flexibility, but that comes with a price. For many applications, we'd love to have the simplicity and efficiency of analog power with the features of digital power. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia Dalton chats with Steve Stella from Microchip Technology about mixing the best of digital and analog power.
Xilinx offers a robust and extensive infrastructure that enables Zynq®-7000 SoC users to be more productive and get their designs to market quickly. The Vivado®-HLS or high level synthesis tool allows designers to make architectural tradeoffs rapidly and develop highly optimized systems in the Zynq-7000 device. The Zynq-7000 platform also includes support for today’s most popular software design environments and Xilinx offers a proven portfolio of IP, design kits and reference designs.
Because today’s single-chip-based architectures are unable to meet this demand for increased bandwidth and complexity, there is a need to develop efficient algorithms and switching architectures to meet the high-speed network requirements. Stratix V FPGAs enable hardware designers to integrate true 100-GbE components for next-generation switches and routers that ensure QoS while balancing the distribution of data through the system.
High-performance signal-processing designs increasingly require higher than 18-bit precision and even a range of precisions across the datapath. You're probably seeing these requirements in traditional digital signal processing (DSP) functions such as finite impulse response (FIR) filters, fast Fourier transforms (FFTs), emerging matrix functions, and in custom signal-processing datapaths.
Microsemi's next-generation SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs are the only devices that address fundamental requirements for advanced security, high reliability and low power in critical industrial, military, aviation, communications and medical applications. SmartFusion2 integrates an inherently reliable flash-based FPGA fabric, a 166 megahertz (MHz) ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor, advanced security processing accelerators, DSP blocks, SRAM, eNVM, and industry-required high-performance communication interfaces all on a single chip.

Watch this new demo to learn how to: Add run-time visibility into your FPGA systems, access available run-time information using Tcl, a flexible command language, create your own custom verification tool using graphical elements such as buttons, dials, and graphs and develop solutions ranging from simple scripts to sophisticated GUI applications
In the past, FPGA vendors commonly segmented their portfolios between "high-end" and "low-cost" devices. However, as developers have refined the way they leverage FPGA technologies, they have voiced the need for a "mid-range" solution, featuring high-end functionality and performance in a cost effective package. The Xilinx® Kintex™-7 family of FPGAs was developed for these applications, delivering the most balanced power and performance in the industry while providing high-end features, such as cutting-edge transceivers, integrated IP, and extensive DSP resources.
SmartFusion®2 SoC FPGA devices integrate a 4th generation flash-based FPGA fabric and an ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor. The SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA fabric includes embedded mathblocks, which are optimized specifically for DSP applications such as, finite impulse response (FIR) filters, infinite impulse response (IIR) filters, and fast fourier transform (FFT) functions. Adaptive filters are widely used in different DSP application areas like communication, biomedical, audio/video processing because of their ability to adjust the filter coefficients according to adaptive algorithms and input signal characteristics.
