Chalk Talk Maximize Design Productivity With PCIe/104 FPGA/Processor

No engineer enjoys re-inventing the wheel.  We want to focus our talent on the part of our design that’s new and cool.  One way we can go straight past that whole “re-inventing the wheel” part of our designs is to take advantage of three key engineering-time-saving technologies: pre-made small form factor boards, high-performance embedded processors and programmable logic … Read More → "Maximize Design Productivity With PCIe/104 FPGA/Processor"

Chalk Talk Spartan-6 FPGAs in Video Designs

Video design is easy, right? A silicon press, a couple of coders and some lines of software, and you’re there, right? Well, not so fast. If your design requires intelligent processing of the video, keeping your performance high and your power low in your next video design can be a truly challenging task, but using … Read More → "Spartan-6 FPGAs in Video Designs"
