Autonomous driving is a wildly challenging problem. Of all the headline-grabbing technologies in development today, replacing the human driver in a car probably takes the most computing power, although you wouldn’t guess that from the obvious lack of computing power demonstrated by many of our fellow human drivers on the road. But the invention of “artificial stupidity” notwithstanding (did you SEE the way that idiot … Read More → "VSORA Pushes the PetaFLOPS for Autonomous Driving"
The winds of change are blowing strongly in the FPGA market these days. As programmable logic has matured, a number of lucrative market opportunities have opened up, driven by the rapid deployment of 5G, the revolution in application of AI technology across numerous design types, the transformation of the data center into a complex heterogeneous computing cluster, the overhaul of automotive and transportation technology, and the … Read More → "Intel Drives FPGA Expansion"
Recently, I received an email from my old chum Dave Millman, who is CEO of SalesDev.Global. Before we plunge headfirst into the fray (this column) with gusto and abandon (and panache, of course), I would first like to note that I only just … Read More → "Create Free Silicon Chips Courtesy of Google, SkyWater, and Efabless!"
It seems we are announcing new AI inference hardware on a weekly basis these days. There is an incredible amount of engineering talent and energy going into the task of developing the next generation of computing architecture – one optimized for the AI revolution. Recently, Untether AI came out of stealth mode and unveiled an entire ecosystem aimed at boosting performance and cutting power consumption in AI … Read More → "Untether AI – Peddling PetaOps"
In this week’s podcast, we have a virtual grab bag of electronic engineering goodness. We start things off with a story about the unique exploration of the Bennu asteroid. We take a closer look at how NASA’S OSIRIS-REx mission successfully mapped out Bennu’s gravity field and how this information has provided vital clues about the formation of asteroids. Also this week, Rob Persons (Smart Embedded Computing) … Read More → "Return of VPX – Standards, Trends and Supply Chain Security"
Six years ago, we speculated about what would happen if Intel were to buy Altera. A year later, they did, and a lot of our speculation came true – Intel has leveraged Altera technology to defend their dominance of the data center, the FPGA market has changed direction, and the Altera culture has been largely assimilated into the … Read More → "If AMD Buys Xilinx"
