For the reason’s posted under “Intel Plus Altera
What Would it Mean?” … Intel simply doesn’t need Altera, or Xilinx IP.

Everything that is important they will need to engineer themselves anyway, and that isn’t very much. A co-processor FPGA fabric is a very very different beast than today’s Altera and Xilinx FPGA’s.

Done right, and Intel will redefine computing … and implemented from XEON’s to Atom SOC offerings, so that Xilinx and Altera will spend the next decade playing catchup. Game over.

And with it, new important boundaries for both Amdahl’s Law, and Moore’s Law.

Understanding the Foundations of Quiescent Current in Linear Power Systems

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Minimizing power consumption is an important design consideration, especially in battery-powered systems that utilize linear regulators or low-dropout regulators (LDOs). Read this new whitepaper to learn the fundamentals of IQ in linear-power systems, how to predict behavior in dropout conditions, and maintain minimal disturbance during the load transient response.
