The walled fortress is a time honored tradition in the FPGA business. Since the beginning of FPGA time, vendors of programmable logic silicon have kept a tight grip on the tool chains that are used to program their devices. If you want to do anything with a vendor’s chips, you need the vendor’s tools and the vendor’s rules. The only exceptions have been … Read More → "QuickLogic Opens Up FPGA Design"
Since I spend an inordinate and unfortunate amount of time worrying about the possibility of a forthcoming artificial intelligence (AI) apocalypse, I was delighted to hear that the folks at ETSI have plunged into the fray with regard to establishing the world’s first standardization initiative dedicated toward securing AI. We will return to ETSI’s initiative shortly, but first…< … Read More → "Securing Artificial Intelligence Before It Secures Us!"
Step right up ladies and gentlemen! We’ve got all sorts of fun lined up for this week’s Fish Fry podcast. Tim Colleran (LEVL) joins us to discuss LEVL-ID, what sets it apart this device identity technology from MAC randomization, and why full stack device Intelligence is key to its success. Also this … Read More → "Full Stack Future Proofing: How LEVL is Changing the Device Identity Game"
According to tech folklore, Carver Mead actually coined the term “Moore’s Law” – some ten years or so after the publication of Gordon Moore’s landmark 1965 Electronics Magazine article “Cramming More Components Onto Integrated Circuits.” For the next five and a half decades, the world was reshaped by the self-fulfilling prophecy outlined in that article. Namely, that every two years or so, semiconductor companies would be … Read More → "Neuromorphic Revolution"
“The sad thing about artificial intelligence is that it lacks artifice and therefore intelligence.” – Jean Baudrillard
It’s turtles all the way down. That’s the takeaway from a deep dive into Esperanto’s upcoming AI chip, melodically named ET-SoC-1. It’s organized as layer upon layer of processor cores, memory blocks, and mesh networks as far as … Read More → "Esperanto AI Chip Exploits Thousands of Minions"
Pop Quiz – which FPGA company has sold the most devices?
Nope, wrong. Guess again.
And… wrong again. Neither Xilinx nor Altera/Intel, despite hovering around 80% combined FPGA market share for the last couple of decades, has shipped the most FPGA devices. That distinction goes to Lattice Semiconductor, and not by a small margin. The … Read More → "Lattice Launches Mach-NX"
