The Valley of FPGA

Where Green Pastures End

by Kevin Morris

Just about every electronic technology on the market today has alternatives. Between custom chips, ASSPs, pre-built modules, embedded processors, microcontrollers, FPGAs, and a host of other silicon-based goodies, there are always numerous ways to solve any given problem. As engineers, we make our choice based on any number of criteria - cost, power, size, reliability, our familiarity and experience with the technology, our company’s preferences... all of them weigh into our decision.  Read More

Hmmm ... more outsourcing IT and EDA engineering jobs.

And moving critical US IP into foreign hands, where IP laws are sometimes less than useful?

There is resistance to this???

An important aspect of the picture you draw here is that it is multi-party: chip vendor, processor IP provider, OS/RTOS provider, hypervisor provider, stack source (open?), and applications.

I won't comment if Benjamin Franklin's quote about secrets an…

And the TEE needs to be completely transparent -- From tool chain that compiles it, source codes for everything (tool chain, libraries, and product), and the verifiable binaries that are produced.

Trust starts with the transparency that anyone, especia…

Dear Kevin, your great article reminds me of a funny experience that I had:

In 2010, I had to develop an FPGA-based solution for an industrial application for my employer.
Prototypes in another part of the building.

Glad to hear such important design goals on the EE side the product specification role

Thinking that products will be obsolete in a year, or three, is really giving your customers a choice for a competitive purchasing option, to jump ship, and you loo…
