The Times They Are A Changin’

Moshe Gavrielov Gets His Zynq On and IBM Rolls Out a Graphene IC

In this week’s Fish Fry, my special guest is Xilinx CEO Moshe Gavrielov who chats with me about their new Zynq embedded processing platform and how he sees this new addition not only changing the course of the Xilinx roadmap going forward but also where he thinks the FPGA industry is headed as a whole.

Also this week, I explore the new Graphene IC unveiled by IBM and check out the Freescale/BMW collaboration that just might make parking our cars just a little bit easier.

And, in keeping with the Xilinx theme, you’ll definitely want to get in on the competition for this week’s awesome nerdy giveaway – a Spartan-6 LX9 MicroBoard and as usual you’ll need to tune in to find out how to win.

If you like the idea of this new series be sure to drop a comment in the box below.

When faced with the need for more of something, one possible solution is expansion. This could take many forms but one simple way is extending it to be greater in size, such as adding the dining room table leaves to fit more people around the Thanksgiving table. Samtec’s...

“Mommy, Daddy … Why is the sky blue?” As you scramble for an answer that lies somewhere between a discussion of refraction in gasses and “Oh, look—a doggie!” you already know the response to whatever you say will be a horrifyingly sincere “B...

Given that the industry is beginning to reach the limits of what can physically and economically be achieved through further shrinkage of process geometries, reducing feature size and increasing transistor counts is no longer achieving the same result it once did. Instead the...
