Connecting the Dots

Siloti Helps Reveal the Picture

by Bryon Moyer

Dot-to-dots are a fundamental part of American kiddie culture. Maybe it’s universal; I don’t want to speak to things I know nothing about… (much). But at least here in the US, it’s a typical child’s pastime (or homework busywork to placate parents that don’t want their children wasting their time playing): a piece of paper has a few strategically-placed numbered dots. You fill in the missing information by supplying the path between the dots; the result should reveal an image that wasn’t evident at the start.  Read More

A Low-Power Gyro – For Real

Posted on 03/28/15 at 9:42 PM by SteveNordquis4

Cypress as in wacky currency and commodity leverage and high Russian representation, compliance seeks you; got it.

I thought we were going to have those UPS gyros (the ones with 70kg. shatter shields, yes) on exercise bands and make balance balls (thos…

Intel Buying Altera? We Totally Called It.

Posted on 03/28/15 at 7:25 AM by smithtronix

You deservedly should get credit for calling it last year. Of course it should not be a surprise as it really has been an excessively long time in coming. A chronology of technologies leading up to this marriage would be very interesting. Let's just hope …

When Intel Buys Altera

Well, this article seems to have suddenly taken on more relevance. What do you think?

TI MCU Goes 32-Bit

Posted on 03/25/15 at 9:31 PM by richw42

It's not obvious to me that the free MSPWare includes everything needed, such as a compiler. Why else would it be posed as a component of CCS?

HLS is the New Black

Posted on 03/25/15 at 11:57 AM by TotallyLost

It's been nearly 20 years down this path, nice to see it realized productively with broad acceptance for large projects

It wasn't even 10 years ago while our team was doing FpgaC, that lead companies like Xilinx were openly rude and hostile to the con…

HLS is the New Black

Posted on 03/25/15 at 4:15 AM by dysonwilkes

Nice overview Kevin.

I often wonder if an HLS flow would be able to produce an implementation that has run-time flexibility. Maybe this is a system-level architecture issue: i.e. you compose sets of blocks implemented by HLS and orchestrate them with …

Programming Dark Matter

Hmm. Tricky. There are separate TLBs for each CPU core in a multicore chip, even though those same cores share some other MMU resources. That could, theoretically, allow a separate path into the "encrypted" memory through a twin core inside the same chip.

A Low-Power Gyro – For Real

Posted on 03/23/15 at 9:32 AM by bmoyer

Do you think this low-power gyro technology can have legs beyond its original implanatable target?

Programming Dark Matter

Posted on 03/18/15 at 10:48 AM by bmoyer

Jim - Interesting stuff. Question: you mentioned a multi-chip setup providing a possible second path, so it works for a single CPU. But what about multicore within a single chip? There's only a single MMU for all cores there, right? (Not sure if you're eq…
