Integration is the fundamental fuel that drives technical innovation. Each new node of Moore’s Law has allowed us to “Cram More Components” onto our integrated circuits, facilitating greater and greater levels of integration on chunks of silicon. But even in today’s “System on Chip” era, we do not truly have “systems” on a chip.
Sure, we can pack processors, a lot of close peripherals, and … Read More → "Xilinx Introduces Kria SoMs"
I once worked for a large computer manufacturer that considered itself to be a “big cheese” in its headquarters’ hometown. For some reason, the folks who donned the undergarments of authority and strode the corridors of power decided to have a blitz on the local media channels — including newspapers, radio, and television — to remind the hoi polloi as to who we were and what we did. … Read More → "Want to Learn AI? But Where to Go?"
As the helmsman of the Ever Given,
currently recently stuck sideways in the Suez Canal, can attest, turning a massive ship is no easy task. And there’s no bigger vessel in our industry than the S.S. Read More → "Heresy and Horror Ahead at Intel"
If you’d asked me a year ago (or two, or three) what I thought about Xilinx’s cost-optimized device offering, I’d have told you that I firmly believed that the company had given up on the low-cost FPGA and programmable logic market, leaving it to other, more eager competitors like Lattice Semiconductor and Microsemi/Microchip. Intel (formerly Altera) had been maintaining parity with Xilinx … Read More → "Xilinx Back in the Cost-Optimized Game"
In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Brian Faith (CEO – QuickLogic) joins me to discuss Qomu: a new open source SoC dev kit that fits in your USB port. Brian and I delve into the details of this new kit, examine its role within the QuickLogic Open Reconfigurable Computing (QORC) initiative, and how this kit is turning FPGA development on its head in more ways than one. Also this … Read More → "The Future Will Be Open Source: How QuickLogic Is Changing the FPGA Landscape"
