Intel Introduces Two Monolithic Agilex FPGA and SoC Families, Part 2: Sundance Mesa is now the Agilex 5 E-Series

Last September, I published an article on EEJournal.com that described two new Intel Agilex FPGA and SoC device families, the Agilex 5 D-series and an as-yet-unnamed series formerly known as “Sundance Mesa,” introduced at last year’s Intel Innovation. (See “Intel Introduces Two Monolithic Agilex FPGA and SoC Families, Part 1</ … Read More → "Intel Introduces Two Monolithic Agilex FPGA and SoC Families, Part 2: Sundance Mesa is now the Agilex 5 E-Series"

Does 2+2=4? Microchip announces PolarFire 2; You Do the Math

Microchip previewed its PolarFire 2 mid-range SoC FPGA family at the RISC-V Summit last month in two presentations including a keynote given by Bruce Weyer, the company’s Corporate VP for FPGAs. Although the company provided very few product details, it dropped many hints. So many hints, in fact, that I can give you the information I’ve collected based on these hints, tell you what I … Read More → "Does 2+2=4? Microchip announces PolarFire 2; You Do the Math"

Lattice Strides Into the Mid-Range FPGA Arena With Avant

Lattice Semiconductor is moving upscale with its new mid-range Avant FPGA platform. After spending the last several years taking low-end market share from its bigger FPGA competitors, essentially while they weren’t looking, Lattice has decided that a similar opportunity awaits in mid-range programmable-logic parts. I think the jury is out there. … Read More → "Lattice Strides Into the Mid-Range FPGA Arena With Avant"

Virtualized IoT Devices in the Cloud Run Faster Than Their Real-World Counterparts!

I’m not a giddy software guru. I’m a hard-bitten hardware guy. I remember those days of yesteryear when I hadn’t even heard about esoteric things like virtualization, containerization, disaggregation, and other “-ations,” the discussion of which does my poor old noggin no favors whatsoever.

Now, by comparison, I know enough to nod knowingly and grunt appreciatively when … Read More → "Virtualized IoT Devices in the Cloud Run Faster Than Their Real-World Counterparts!"
