Less Pessimism, Please

POCV is the Latest Salvo in Improving Timing Analysis Accuracy

by Bryon Moyer

When I was a teen, I remember someone coming to help my Dad plan a big move of some piece of equipment on our orchard. What struck me was how this guy could pre-visualize all the various scenarios and then consider the consequences and, in particular, all the things that could possibly go wrong for the different cases.

I was pretty impressed. It seemed like such thorough analytical capabilities were a skill and a gift. Over time, however, I’ve noticed that such an ability isn’t always appreciated. Because most of the world likes to assume best-case conditions, the “value add” of the more thorough approach is to point out that there are potential negative consequences too. Which makes you Mr. Negative. The pessimist. Always there to dash cold water on a hot idea. Doesn’t matter if you’re right.  Read More

Attack of the Tiny Terrors

Posted on 04/23/14 at 2:25 AM by BradL

Don't worry - by the time Microchip gets anywhere near to running low on part numbers, they will have integrated a fractional part number converter circuit on-chip. smiling

The CLC is a nice addition, though they are hardly the first with something like th…

Toward Ten TeraFLOPS

This is good news and has been a long time coming. Having viable floating point processing on FPGA will open up new markets for HPC applications. To really compete in those markets Altera will need to increase the domain-specific content in their OpenCL …

It certainly will, especially if they fine tune C and System C synthesis to include OpenMP optimizations around the DSP blocks and Memory blocks. If the application is developed on a conventional processor with a coding style targeting FPGA C synthesis, t…

Altera has added hardened floating-point to their DSP blocks in both the current Arria 10 and upcoming Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs. They claim that brings a Stratix 10 device up to 10 teraFLOPS territory. Do you think this will finally break FPGAs into HPC …

Now if you would like a healthy chill in your spine about client and server side security, consider the following attack that is likely to show up in the wild soon, simply because of how easy/effective it is.

Since IT folks and customers have become VM…

Bruce ... I agree that authentication can be dramatically improved .... however that is less than 1% of the real problem when the base computing platform and environment is not secure.

Securing that is neither easy, or likely, so normal everyday users …

John--

This has been a good & healthy bit of "argy bargy", thank you!

You've pointed out some good items and raised awareness that users need to take greater responsibility [a] for client-side security and [b] to 'vote' with their business for gre…

The answer to "how would you improve internet security" ... don't use it, or any computer connected to the internet, to process or store data that you can not risk being compromised.

I have held DOD security clearances, and managed secure data centers,…

Kudos (again) for raising good points; I am not sure I understand your line of thought however. Yes, there are always vectors of attack (malware, for example) ... are you suggesting that because there is no such thing as perfect security that we should n…
