Intel’s Stuart Pann Explains the Company’s use of Outside Foundries

Stuart Pann, Senior Vice President of Intel’s Corporate Planning Group, published an interesting “opinion” piece titled “Expanding Intel’s Foundry Partnerships: A Critical Piece of IDM 2.0” in August. “IDM 2.0” is the term Intel uses to describe its use of process technologies from other foundries in addition to Intel’s home-grown process technologies. The term “IDM” means “integrated device manufacturer” and refers to a chipmaker that manufactures its own silicon die. … Read More → "Intel’s Stuart Pann Explains the Company’s use of Outside Foundries"

A Hands-On Guide to Designing Embedded Systems

There are a lot of books available to tell you all about the theoretical side of designing and building embedded systems, but not so many that tackle the nitty-gritty details involved in developing embedded systems that actually work and keep on working, until now…

When I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young lad poised to spend the next four years of … Read More → "A Hands-On Guide to Designing Embedded Systems"

11 Reasons You Should NOT use an FPGA for a Design, and Four Reasons You Should

We write a lot about FPGAs here at EEJournal, with good reason, and you might get the impression that they’re the right solution to every design problem. They’re not.

Here’s a checklist to help keep you in the right path to successful design when considering FPGAs as a design alternative:

  1. If you … Read More → "11 Reasons You Should NOT use an FPGA for a Design, and Four Reasons You Should"

Microchip Powers Down the Edge

Microchip’s FPGA offering has a heritage of low power and high reliability. Beginning with Actel’s antifuse- and flash-based devices that were picked up and advanced by Microsemi and then later joined Microchip’s formidable stable in a subsequent acquisition, the fundamental approach hasn’t changed – building the lowest-power mid-range FPGAs on the market.

Now, that agenda has advanced … Read More → "Microchip Powers Down the Edge"
