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

What do you think of this quilt packaging approach to interconnecting multiple dice?

In It to Win It

Very interesting listening to this. Achronix says they are in production. I would love to hear about how many actual FPGAs they are shipping per month. Ten pieces per month?

Looking at the last couple rounds, I'm surprised the doors aren't closed yet. …

Xilinx Throws Down

Posted on 03/01/15 at 1:16 PM by gobeavs

I just think Achronix is toast. I would really love to hear what their advantage is. I think the Intel 22 nm may have been a small advantage but probably not enough to make that big of a difference. I think you need to be twice as fast or half the die siz…

@gobeavs -- and it wasn't that many years ago that key Xilix staff were brutally vocal putting down folks pioneering C/SystemC to RTL.

Now the company stand is: Vivado HLS accelerates design implementation and verification by enabling C, C++, and Syst…

@gobeavs, I'm as impressed with this announcement as anybody, but I think you're assigning a bit too much nobility to Xilinx and Altera marketing when you say "I don't think Xilinx or Altera put some lame effective LUTs... number out there."

Let's rev…

Xilinx Throws Down

Posted on 02/25/15 at 2:15 PM by gobeavs

Just another nail in the coffin for Achronix. I think it's funny that Achronix puts a LUT count on the hard IP. That is an interesting marketing ploy. I don't think Xilinx or Altera put some lame effective LUTs including hard IP number out there.

You k…

Good article, and the third paragraph is right on. Generating power from temperature differences hasn't been top of mind due to the lack of awareness and finished products. I would like to encourage readers to browse our Perpetua portfolio of thermoelectr…

Thanks Weatherbee,

That was a typo, and it has been corrected.
