After Intel and Altera

Intel does a substantial amount of networking stuff too. NICs, switch silicon and what have you. If they were to start putting FPGA fabric there, it would make be a game changer for SDN.

2D or Not 2D

Since this was finished there has been news of the world's thinnest light bulb, using graphene, and Stanford has announced that coating copper interconnect on ICs with graphene has two benefits: speed increases and the isolation layer is dramatically thin…

The Laws of Automotive Robotics

It may seem pedantic, but it is important to remember that you cannot qualify components (ICs or their contributory IP) to 26262 ASIL levels. All you can say is that the way in which the component was developed makes it suitable for use in a system that w…

Golgi and the IoT

What's your opinion? Is connectivity of the complex sort that Golgi provides enough to call IoT? Or do you need more?

Altera Stratix 10

@WEATHERBEE, Yes, Zynq UltraScale+ has ARM processors. Virtex UltraScale+ does not. So Xilinx's high-end FPGAs do not have integrated ARM processors.

Zynq tops out at around 900K LUT equivalents and 24 SerDes transceivers - so not a "high-end FPGA" com…

Redefining How Software Is Created

"IoT greenfield market thesis" - uh, no. Sorry the IoT (and Wearable) segments already are establishing extensive roots leveraging existing embedded code and tools.

This sounds like a retread of our 1980s experience with 4th Generation Languages (4GL)…

Rumors Intel Altera Deal is Close

Kevin writes: "and that Intel is poorly equipped to run an FPGA business - which is almost more of a software and service business than a "chip" business."

As I noted previously, it's well past time that we accept being held back by underfunded in-hous…

Astronauts, Architects, and Memory Chips

Does this compare to NAND or to NOR?
NAND is not reliable. Sometimes when it is erase, it won't erase and there are write failures.
Nor is reliable.

Or are you only comparing the density of NAND? How does it compare to new triple level NAND or Smasun…

The Hardware Vanishing Point

It will never be “all software.”

You can talk all you want and code all you want, but hardware is a necessity if you want to DO anything!

Since hardware is a rock-bottom necessity, I am heading the movement back to hardware. In Smart Small Systems…
