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

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.

Introduction to the New Virtuoso ADE Product Suite

Do different members of your team have different requirements and challenges for your analog design tools? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Steve Lewis of Cadence Design Systems about the new capabilities in Cadence's Virtuoso ADE Product Suite - capabilities that will make everyone on your team happy.

UltraRAM: Massive On-Chip Memory for FPGAs and MPSoCs

There is a significant gap between FPGA on-chip memories and off-chip memories that causes problems in some applications. What we need to fill that gap are much larger on-chip memory resources to fill that need. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ehab Mohsen of Xilinx about the new UltraRAM blocks in Xilinx FPGAs and Zynq MPSoCs.

TI LaunchPad Ecosystem

Turning your idea into a working project begins with a good development kit. Launchpad from Texas Instruments offers a robust, affordable starting point to make your next idea a reality. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton talks to Daniel Ogilvie of Texas Instruments about the latest on TI's popular LaunchPad.

Running Out of Processing Power? No Problem.

Today's applications demand more processing power on a smaller energy budget. Advanced algorithms such as embedded vision easily overwhelm conventional SoCs.
